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

Excellent performance ; Long battery life ; Can run older Mac apps ; Thin and light

Lack of ports ; Design is getting old

Sleek, long-lasting and mightily powerful, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) puts Apple's new M1 chip to brilliant use. This is an excellent showcase for what Apple hardware can do, and if you're a creative professional that wants a portable...

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.

M1 Apple MacBook Pro 13in (2020) review: This laptop will change the world


An almost unbelievably good laptop, the Apple Silicon M1 MacBook is here and nothing is ever going to be the same again

Fast and responsive (even under emulation) ; Reasonably priced ; Astonishing battery life ; Runs iOS apps

Compatibility issues with some software

Finally, to the verdict, and it’s a pretty easy one to give. If you’re in the market for a new laptop and you have around £1,300 to spend – and assuming you’ve checked that it will run all the software you require – there is no other laptop that comes...

13in MacBook Pro (M1) Vs MacBook Pro (Intel)


How do the new M1-powered 13in MacBook Pros compare to the ones they replace - and the 2.0GHz models that are still on sale?

The fact that Apple has brought new levels of performance and battery life to the MacBook Pro, all without an increase in price, makes the new M1-powered machines incredibly easy to recommend. These are without doubt the future for the Mac, so if you...

13in MacBook Pro M1 2020 review


Benchmarks tell us a lot, but how does the M1 MacBook Pro perform in practice? We compared it to our four-year-old 15in MacBook Pro to find out.

Apple MacBook Pro M1 Review


Apple's MacBook Pro is equipped with Apple's own M1 processor, which turns out to be fast and has a fast GPU on board. The CPU does not suffer from throttling under load and appears to be economical because during browsing we achieve an excellent...

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
