Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) review: Apple's most ambitious laptop yet

 

The new MacBook Pro M1 13-inch is a portable powerhouse aimed at creative professionals, with Apple's revolutionary M1 chip

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1 processor) review: The start of something new

 

We've been using the new MacBook Pro with M1 processor to find out how it performs. Are there any problems? Is the battery that much better?

Fast and powerful - and paves the way for Apple silicon future ; No obvious issues with multi-tiered app operation - it just works ; Super battery life ; Great screen

Design hasn't changed - and looks a little tired ; No new features beyond the new processor ; Only up to 16GB of RAM ; Touch Bar still not a must-have ; Just the two ports

This feels like the start of something impressive thanks to new Apple silicon in the M1 processor - which results in lots of power and impressive battery life. It will be fascinating to see not only where Apple goes next, but how the industry responds.

Apple MacBook Pro 13in with M1 (2020) review

 

We go Mac to the future with the M1 chip – but not this notebook's design

Speedy and responsive ; Display remains first-class ; Battery lasts for ages ; Mostly whisper quiet

Design starting to age ; Limited connectivity ; Webcam isn’t that great ; Dare we say it: no touchscreen

We’d love two more Thunderbolt ports and a redesign, but colour us surprised the entry level MacBook Pro has this much to offer.

Apple launched two generations of MacBook Pro models in 2020, one at the beginning and one at the end. The model on test here is the later version, featuring Apple's first-ever own-brand processor (the Apple M1)...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch M1 review: The iPhone of laptops

 

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch features Apple's new M1 chip, making these laptops more like iPhones than traditional laptops.

M1 is insanely fast ; Beautiful display, as always ; Fantastic battery life ; Speakers sound brilliant ; Top-notch keyboard and trackpad

Only two Thunderbolt ports ; Touch Bar is still frustrating

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (M1, Late 2020) Review

 

Long battery life ; Speedy performance from Apple M1 chip ; Brilliant Retina display ; Excellent build quality ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Improved webcam

Only two USB-C ports ; Stingy standard 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM ; No touch screen

Now powered by Apple’s M1 CPU, the 13-inch MacBook Pro remains a workhorse for those who want a compact macOS laptop that's still powerful enough to perform processor-intensive workflows.

Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1, 2020) review

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro gets even more powerful

Stellar overall and gaming performance ; Excellent battery life ; Lightning-fast SSD ; Great webcam ; Comfortable keyboard ; macOS Big Sur is a nice update

Not enough ports ; Thick bezels

Armed with Apple’s new M1 SoC, the MacBook Pro brings power, endurance and a host of new features in that familiar iconic chassis.

MacBook Pro M1 review: Apple amazes with its first Silicon MacBook Pro Review | ZDNet

 

If you're looking for a fresh design, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for killer performance, long battery life and broad app support, you'll be hard-pressed to find fault with Apple's inaugural M1-based MacBook Pro.

Fast and powerful ; Long battery life ; All around app support ; Improve camera, despite still 720p

Some iPad apps need an update ; Same design will be tired for some ; Can get pricey with upgrade options ; Caps out at 16GB

MacBook Pro with M1 review

 

The MacBook Pro with M1 delivers a killer combo of blazing performance and epic battery life, even if the design is too familiar.

Superb performance ; Crazy long battery life ; Bright and colorful display ; Comfortable Magic Keyboard

Dated design ; Just two Thunderbolt ports

Overall, I really like the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 and it’s an excellent choice for power users. But I think for the vast majority of people the MacBook Air M1 is “Pro” enough.

13-Inch M1 MacBook Pro 2020 Review

 

Apple's new M1 MacBooks wipe the floor with Dell and HP ultrabooks.

Class-leading battery life ; Insane performance ; Premium build quality

Poor port selection

Performance, experience, and thermals are virtually the same on the two M1 MacBooks, although the MacBook Pro has a slight edge over the Air’s 13-hour battery life, and it has a touch bar. Are a touch bar and one more hour of battery life worth $300 to...
