MacBook Pro 2021 review: Apple's M1 Max chip makes a big difference


It's the best of the old and new in this long-awaited, professional-grade Apple silicon MacBook.

HDMI and SD card ports return ; MagSafe power connection is back ; Bigger, better, brighter screen with slimmer bezels ; New great-looking 1080p webcam ; Huge leap in graphics performance over earlier M1 systems ; Function keys replace the Touch Bar

Higher-end configs quickly drive up the price ; Screen has a notch for the webcam

Apple MacBook Pro 16-Inch (2021, M1 Max) Review


Seriously powerful components ; Exceptional battery life ; Impressive audio performance ; HDMI output and SD card reader ; High-quality 1080p webcam ; Gorgeous Mini-LED display ; High-quality keyboard, huge touchpad

MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) review


Apple's MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) is an across-the-board improvement that delivers best-in-class performance, especially with M1 Max.

Beautiful Liquid Retina XDR display ; Incredible performance trounces competition ; Outstanding battery life ; Great speakers ; Finally, more than USB-C ports ; 1080p webcam helps you look great

Display not 4K ; Expensive, especially with M1 Max ; USB-A port would be nice

Still, the MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) is an excellent device that proves Apple's strategy of building bespoke silicon for its laptops is paying off big-time.

2021 MacBook Pro Review: Utterly Pro in every way There's nothing Pro about the MacBook Pro 13 inch I've been using for the last year. At least that's the way

The Ultra-Powerful New MacBook Pro Is Top Notch (Sorry, Sorry, Trying to Delete)


The MacBook Pro is finally everything you want a pro machine to be.

Breathtaking performance; beautiful, bright miniLED display; a FaceTime camera that works magic; actually useful ports for pros; MagSafe has returned better than ever; fast-charging is fast
