    Most Amazing Laptop I've EVERY Owned!

    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    I own iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, but until now, I've always been a Windows Laptop user. Over the last 4 years, I've had 4, count then, FOUR higher end Windows laptops crash and burn (not literally in flames), but totally crash on me. After my most recent HP Spectre 1TB 4K laptop's SSD literally crashed, I decided my time with Windows had to end. So, I bought this MacBook Pro 16" 1TB with the M1 Pro chip and to say, I don't know what took me so long to move to Mac. This MacBook Pro is simply beyond awesome and worth every single penny and it costs a lot of pennies, but you get what you pay for and then some. The build quality is amazing. The Stunning Liquid XDR Display is the best display I've ever seen on a laptop. The M1 Pro chip with 16GB of ram is fast beyond belief. MacOS is far easier to master than I ever imagined, with performance I was NEVER able to get with the highest end HP Spectre this replaces. I am simply blown away by how incredible this MacBook Pro is. Simply Blown AWAY!

    if you purchase this item BEST BUY TOTAL TECH MEMBERSHIP ADDED WITH ITEM is a necessity!!! I had considered purchasing this with Best Buy for months but finally took the plunge when I bought the MacBook M1 pro 1tera. On top of the fact that it combines with apple care, but now has geek squad help for the inevitable mischief I get myself into that may require assistance and protection from viruses and other problems. If your coughing up $3000 for this item another $200 for all the benifits of Total Tech is a must. I don’t think the MacBook needs a full review, any real Apple user doesn’t need to read reviews to know what there spending that type of money on.

    #1 Choice For Creatives Professionals

    TL;DR This thing absolutely crushes anything I throw at it, from Music Production, Video, Photo and Graphic Design workflows. For the money you will find nothing else like it in the PC and Intel Mac line-ups. For my testing I used Logic with Soundtoys, iZotope, Native Insruments and Valhalla plugins, I also Tested Premiere Pro with Ignite Pro/Hitfilm Special FX on a 4k HEVC clip and it ran in realtime which has never really happened for me before! This is the kind of performance you'd expect from Final Cut. Adobe CC programs also launch way faster than Im used too, they also perform incredibly well, even the non M1 optimized ones, I tested Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Premiere and After Effects. Cherry on top is the battery is unlike anything I've ever experienced, Im talking 10-13 hour EASILY with mid-heavy cpu/gpu workflows, while maintaining full performance. If you're doing light work you can easily look upwards of 16hrs. You're simply not going to find this amount of efficiency and performance on battery anywhere else. I feel weird saying this is the best screen on any laptop, but it truly is and its not even close. The HDR true blacks and 1600nit peak highlights are unmatched, the color profiles and tiny bezels are very nice to have on the go. The 120hz is also very nice but I will note, as of now, Safari/Chrome doesn't support it for some reason, its being worked on now but its worth noting. The speakers are mind bogglingly awesome, quality bass and more balanced sound compared to even previous MacBook speakers, Dolby Atmos actually does something I can only describe as black magic, feels weirdly surround when your in front of it, they also don't distort at high volumes, and the volume gets LOUD. I hear a lot of people saying these MacBooks are expensive, but I think they're actually underpriced for what they offer. A high end mini-led Dolby Atmos 120hz monitor like this alone cost at LEAST over $1500 and even then has several caveats. For video editors these MacBooks have h.264, HEVC and Prores accelerators built in, normally you'd have to buy a separate $2000 afterburner card dedicated to just accelerating footage. Not to mention the CPU and Integrated graphics are in a league of their own with performance/efficiency, this level of professional grade horsepower on battery is currently exclusive to these MacBooks, every PC you'll find throttles incredibly hard on performance, while still having worse battery and thermals. If you can afford these and you're a creative professional, this is an obvious choice, best piece of hardware money can buy, full stop.

    Love the new line. I recently had a 2018 MacBook Pro and in comparison between the two the performance is better on the 2021 and the look and feel is better on the 2018. Pros: Battery life which is a huge plus. HDMI port built in Computer does not get hot and fan does not make a lot of noise Charger has a quick disconnect just in case someone trips on the charger cable Cons. There is a small black bar where the camera is on the screen. The Touch Bar has been removed. The computer is thicker. Conclusion After using the computer for 2 weeks, I completely forget about the features that have been removed from the previous model. Make sure you opt for the 1TB SSD. I previously had the 512 and never had enough space.

    FINALLY!!! Apple Gave Us Our Ports BACK!

    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    To look at this MacBook Pro you would be like, Meh. And I get it; it is a very un assuming laptop. It's even kinda ugly from an aesthetic point of view. BUT, it is about time Apple brought back the ports! And function is this thing's unobtrusive hallmark! We have been missing the ports they robbed us of for so many years. AND they finally listened to us and brought them back. People talk about battery time - that isn't the be-all-end-all. For me it's about the ability to render graphics AND battery life. And this laptop handles both of those very well considering the price point. I wish I could afford more laptop performance but this setup is what I have and it performs like a champ. I'm never want of more performance while I'm in the middle of my workflow. I rated the newest incarnation of the MacBook Pro 5 stars because if you've used the newest MacBook Pro then you know how brilliant the screen is and how adept this laptop is at handling video AND how at home it is at processing your photos. If you are a graphic designer, photographer, or videographer you NEED this laptop. In fact, I'd put this particular laptop, in this configuration, against any, at any at this price point in a photo/video editing competition.

    The best screen in your house

    This whole new line of computers with the M1 chip are just outstanding all around. I had already experienced the power of M1 with the Mac Mini which blew my mind in how I could get so much computer at such a low price. In the case of this specific computer the first thing that blew me away as the screen. It's literally the best screen I own and I have a few high end TVs at home. I find myself watching HDR content on this just to see it in a new light. The promotion part of the display wasn't really that evident to me expect for a few things in the UI like the magnification of the icons in the dock or swiping through the app drawer. One thing that was noticeable is that movie playback seems to actually be in 24fps which eliminates judder leading to smoother (not artificially smoother) theater like motion. The build quality is top notch and from the get go you feel like the machine is a tank. The extra ports are a great add and make it easier for me to use this as my main machine. The only thing that was a bit less than I expected is the battery life. I mean it's absolutely great compared to other regular laptops, but already seeing the incredible M1 battery life on the Air I thought this one was gonna be a bigger leap, but they went for a more power hungry approach here to deliver more performance. If you're updating from an older Intel chip, the combo of the M1 chip and the screen will literally have questioning reality. If you're coming from the regular M1, the shock won't be as big but the screen and the ports are reason enough to upgrade.

    I bought this as an upgrade from the 2017 MB Pro with Touch Bar. This one obviously performs better. I was concerned with the USB-C connections. The '17 model never seemed to really be connected and I would often look at a connection and it would seem to come off! The new one has a very satisfying "click" when they are inserted. I do a lot of photo editing and currently have it connected to two 32" 4K screens and it seems to work very well. I have had a little trouble with it mounting a Seagate HD that worked perfectly with the older MBPro. I still cannot get it to work but it works on a M1 mini that we have. I'll get it sorted some time soon. I have run into no problems with it handing Photoshop and Lightroom while using external HD's and I have only used iMovie and not a more resource needy video editing program. Overall very pleased.

    AMAZING Computer - Do your research first!

    Posted .
    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    Two things: 1) I LOVE this computer. It is so fast and responsive! This computer is capable of handling what I need it to do and more. Now I did just come from a 10 year old MacBook Pro so I am probably more excited about the speed because compared to my old one this one is lighting fast! I have also really enjoyed the fingerprint reader which I didn't expect that I would use but I actually use it quite often. The touchpad is HUGE which is great, I was a little leery of its size while typing but it has not caused any issues. Also the keyboard is different now which took me a little time getting used to but it seems just like every other laptop keyboard now as opposed to the iconic apple separated keys I was used to. Its not a big deal just has a slightly different feeling but its very responsive and the keys do have a satisfying bounce to them. Another feature that I like is the screen size. I know everyone complains about the "notch" but honestly I have not noticed it being any issue in what I do. I have even used split screen multiple times and the "notch" was never an issue. HOWEVER, I can say about the size that I am really glad that I went with the 16" because my last computer was a 15.4" and they essentially take up the same real estate on my desk its just the black bezel around the screen is small on this new one. This is not a problem its just something to think about if you are used to the bigger screen. In my opinion the 16" would be the way to go because it is more similar to the 15.4" I do also like though that this model is quite a bit thinner than the older ones. 2)This is not necessarily a complaint but I am glad I did my research before purchasing this model. So originally I did not know that this model does not have USB ports which would have made restoring some of my data to it pretty difficult. However, I did my research beforehand and I bought a little dongle that allows me to connect my USB devices to this computer and it has been working perfectly, BUT that does make for a messy looking work station. It is also kind of inconvenient...and honestly I almost didn't buy this model because I thought to myself "I have to pay EXTRA to use the things I already have!" On the flip side though I guess that is partially how they were able to make this model so much thinner. I am past the money aspect. When you buy an apple computer you expect to pay the premium for it. If this one lasts 10 years like my last one did I'll be thrilled! All in all I am very happy with my purchase and I would buy it again!

    I'm an avid PC user. My wife insisted on having a MacBook, so I bought her this one. I must say, it is incredibly fast and so far, I'm thoroughly impressed. It is becoming difficult to resist the cult and I'm afraid I may become an Apple Fanboi! MUST RESIST! Awesome laptop. ;)

    Our studio needed to replace some older Macbook Pro's and after a bit of discussion, we decided to invest in the new 16" M1 Pro hardware. This is a very powerful Mac. Our art and animation folk feel that they are more productive just in terms of how it handles our production pipelines in the Adobe and Unity worlds. New keyboard is great to use although the all black background is meh from my personal pov. What's not to like? Well, if you're reading this you know that you're paying a premium for Apple gear. This new MacBook Pro reflects that. You get what you pay for - and there's no doubt that this will give us 5 years of production. It's noticeably heavier and less backpack friendly for long city commutes. Definitely not a problem in the office-car-home cycle. But, if you're on public transportation...the 14" may be worth considering. Oh and the notch? It's not a biggie for us and probably won't be for nearly all users in a few minutes.

    I opted for the newest version rather than getting a good deal on the previous version after reading the reviews. This computer lives up to my expectations! It’s great having HDMI built in and 3 USB-C ports. Also I’m glad to have the magsafe power connection. The cord is longer, with a fabric cover that should last longer than the rubber ones that deteriorated after a couple of years. I didn’t expect the screen to be much different from my old one, but I must admit I can really see an improvement here as well. Finally, when I played music for the first time, I was AMAZED! Like I was listening with high quality headphones. I had read about this, but it was still better than I thought it could be. Oh, and transferring my data from the old computer went quickly and smoothly.

    So far I’m satisfied with my purchase. The speakers are amazing, the batter life is phenomenal, and the screen resolution is wonderful. The only issue I have is the price. Although it was $200 off the listed price, when I purchased it, it’s still insanely pricey.

    I love my new MacBook Pro! I've been using a late 2016 MacBook Pro since early 2017 and also loved that machine. The battery life of the M1 processor is a definite improvement and I like the larger 16" screen on the new device too. Speed is incredible and the MagSafe charging (faster charging too), SD card slot and HDMI ports are also a very nice addition compared to the late 2016 model!

    MacBook Pro - Steve Jobs style

    First off, this reminds me of the original MacBook Pro, circa 2007. It feels and works great and I love the fact that the screen is so wide and you can work on many different applications without feeling like your eyes are going bad. I do wish they would add a USB port and a charging port on the right side to match the left, but that is a small quibble over such a beautiful piece of machinery.
