Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro (M3 Max) review: A portable tower of power


It's very powerful and very expensive, but is it worth it? #apple #m3max #macbookpro #applesilicon

Superlative performance ; Long battery life ; Gorgeous display ; Excellent build quality ; USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports ; Great keyboard, trackpad, and speakers

Space Black isn't really black ; Expensive ; Upgrade options are pricey ; 16-inch model is quite heavy ; Display still has blooming issues

The TL;DR version: The M3 Max possesses remarkable performance, but unless you are running apps that can full advantage of it, there’s little sense in upgrading, especially if you already have an Apple Silicon Mac. Those holding on to Intel-based Macs,...

Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro (Late 2023) Review: M3 Max Domination


The MacBook Pro gains a new color and an impressively powerful new M3 Max chip.

M3 Max chip delivers mighty performance ; Long battery life ; Class-leading build quality ; Stunning Mini-LED display

Memory and SSD upgrades remain pricey

If you can stomach the pricey upgrades, the 16-inch MacBook Pro remains a top choice for creative pros, thanks to its impressive performance, top-notch build quality, and punchy Mini-LED display.

Apple MacBook Pro 16 M3 Max review: the most power for the most money


Hello again. It's only been about 10 months since the M2 Pro and Max chips arrived on the MacBook Pros, but that's already old news. Here I am with the MacBook Pro 16 with the M3 Max chip — and hoo boy, this is one big, beefy hunk of Pro laptop. It's...

Great performance ; Long battery life ; Space black handles smudges better

Your wallet will cry ; All the usual Apple gripes — limited upgradability, smaller gaming catalog, etc.

Otherwise, this laptop is for a specific type of person: the kind of pro with workloads who can save a lot of time overall by shaving off a few minutes here and there. For those folks, the price is less of an issue because this is probably a business...

Review: Apple MacBook Pro (M3 Max, 16 Inch)


With a new M3 processor inside that juices performance across the board, the latest edition of Apple's world-class laptop smokes the competition.

Everything is top of the line here: Performance and battery life are untouchable across the board. New black chassis option is sharp. Speakers slap.

Very loud fan under load and High Power Mode. Can’t we color-match the power brick, Apple? Display notch is unappealing. With great power comes a great price tag.

MacBook Pro 16-inch (M3 Max, 2023) review: The new king of MacBooks


The MacBook Pro 16-inch widens the gap between itself and Windows PCs

Excellent overall performance ; Good gaming performance ; Bright colorful display ; Great battery life ; Super comfy keyboard ; Explemary audio quality

Expensive for a base model ; No Face ID ; Annoying notch

Faster and more powerful, Apple has once again lived up to its hype and created a system that outpaces everything else on the market with the MacBook Pro 16.

M3 Max 16-inch MacBook Pro long-term review: Peak Mac


It's been three months since Apple launched its top-of-the-line 16-inch MacBook Pro with the new M3 Max processor. Let's revisit it to see how it's held up and if it really is "scary fast."

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch M3 review: another big step up for the MacBook


A power user 3D animator puts the new MacBook Pro M3 through its paces.

Solid, reliable build quality ; Excellent performance ; Great battery life

Expensive ; Very limited user upgrade options

The Macbook Pro M3 takes a significant step up over its older siblings, with a large leap in performance, and a beautiful display in a sleek package. With up to 128GB RAM, 16-core CPU and 40-core GPU, there is an option for even the most...

MacBook Pro 16-inch M3 Max review: Battery-powered Mac Pro power


The 16-inch MacBook Pro with M3 Max, especially outfitted like our review unit, is expensive, but it delivers power and computing heft roughly equivalent to the M2 Ultra Mac Studio for that cash.
