    I recently purchased this MacBook Pro to replace my previous one, which finally started to show its age after over a decade. I'm a writer, so I use my computer for, well, writing, editing, cover design, and all sorts of other things. I was immediately taken in by the overall speed of the device, no matter what I task it with. I've played around with redesigning a book cover, creating a book trailer, and composing music for said trailer, all without a hint of lag or hesitation. Better yet, I can move from working in Pages to working in Vellum (book formatting software) to GarageBand to PhotoShop with no issues. While the first two aren't particularly heavy users, GarageBand and Photoshop can easily eat up CPU and memory usage. So far, the M3 hasn't broken a sweat. The build and finish are exactly what you would expect from Apple, and I've yet to find any complaints. If you do any work in creative outlets, this is a great laptop to look into. I would also note that I'm a huge fan of the braided covering on the power cord, a massive improvement over the coating of older models.

    Overall the performance is good and gets the job done. The computer handles multiple tasks easily without sacrificing speed or power. The graphics are vivid and we utilize the hard drive size to store a ton of data. The write speed is amazing.

    Love my new MacBook Pro! It runs so fast, and it’s so easy to use. I love the new M3 chip, I had heard that it was more efficient, but seeing it, I can tell it’s way quicker than any Intel chip!

    This MacBook Pro is a total game changer! This laptop flies. Editing photos, videos, you name it - it just laughs it off. No more waiting for things to load, just pure power. And the battery life? Unreal. I can work all day and well into the night without even thinking about an outlet. Sure, it's an investment, but the MacBook Pro feels super high quality and it just works perfectly with everything else I use from Apple. Totally worth it if you're a creative pro or student with demanding projects, or anyone who needs a computer that won't let them down. This thing is a beast!

    The Mac pro is awesome can not compare to any other laptop hands down! Superior in every way possible… Pricey but worth to save up and buy guys. Beautiful screen, powerful performance for editing film projects (creative cloud, da Vinci, and much more), thus far. Happy to have boughten one. Using a 1TB Samsung shield helped me save more money to since it adds much more memory for edits, files, photos, etc….

    Great product. I'm opting to go with the MacBook Air 15 M2 16gb RAM and 1TB SSD. It is more inlkine with my needs. If you need more horsepower, better thermals (so, better performance), a longer lasting batery, and more IO options, get the MacBook Pro. Otherwise, go a generation back and catch a sale. These macs are all super-efficient powerhouses for specialized applications like media production and other creative and computationally expensive tasks. Good stuff.

    A synthesis of the archetype qualities of strength and structure with M3 excellence in performance, response with best in class display and audio. This model receives 10’s, 10’s, 10’s across the board; for the latest reincarnation of the MacBook Pro we have known and now, love. Memory utilization is quite well, when free of popular resource hogging optimization apps and the like. I can only imagine the computing experience of those with higher processors and memory specifications.

    I have been enjoying my 14” MacBook Pro m3, the sound, the screen, the battery life and performance. I been using a 16” MacBook Pro m1 for a couple years now for work and wanted to get one for my personal life. I normally had gaming windows notebooks, I wanted something with better battery and portability. I also been expanding my python coding knowledge and a Mac is so good at running IDEs. It also works great in Mac ecosystem with my iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. I can even unlock it with my watch.

    Laptop was great but as core tech person, I needed much more RAM than this base model's 8gb. Activity monitor shows swap memory always being used. Aside the memory, everything looked perfect. I think this base model is more ideal for everyday users except if RAM is topped up.

    I previously had a MacBook Air for over 13 years and when it was time to upgrade and I considered a Dell, there was no comparison to this MacBook Pro that I bought! The comfort level in my hands with the keyboard to the many user-friendly features as well as the light-weight portability that was so great for travel were some of the reasons that brought me back to an Apple device. I would buy it again and am enjoying all it has to offer.

    Way faster than my MacBook Air. It doesn’t start “sweating” even with 20+ tabs running. The processor is what sold me on this. Very necessary. Incredible speed. Also has the SD card slot which I NEED for work.

    I was not sure if I wanted to stay with my macbook Air 15 because of the larger display or upgrade. I then got the Macbook pro 14 base model and I did not see much difference on performance being that I only do basic things with it. Graphics looked about the same but once I compared the HRD on the apple TV app it made a huge difference. The black on the MacBook Pro was so dark and clear. Also the speakers are much better.

    So glad Apple brought back the separate charging, hdmi and SD card ports with this model! My previous MacBook Pro had only 2 USB-C ports…1 for charging and one for an adaptor…no adaptors needed! Beautiful display, strong battery and fast processor. Best Mac I’ve bought in years…hands down.
