Review of the New MacBook Pro M1
At a glance:

The MacBook Pro was released on November 10, 2020. Instead of Intel processors, the company is introducing its own M1 chip.

They released two other models, 14" and 16". Only the 13-inch MacBook has the touch bar keyboard. And it comes in 2 colours: silver and grey. In the box: a USB Type-C charging cable and a 61-watt adapter. It has two thunderbolts.

Why should you buy a MacBook Pro 13"?

The 13-inch MacBook Pro was one of the first Apple Macs to use Apple silicon, with dramatically better performance and battery life in the same MacBook Pro design that Apple has supplied since 2016. The M1 MacBook Pro, which was announced in November of 2020, is now over a year old.

Even though Apple released two new models of 14-inch and 16-inch, this 13-inch model is still a good option. The 14-inch model and 16-inch models come with M1 pro and M1 max by default, so comparatively, they’re more expensive than the 13-inch models, and they’re a good option for creative professions.

This new chip replaces the Intel chips that had previously powered Apple computers, ushering in a new age for Apple while also giving its laptops a breath of fresh air and reminding everyone what makes Apple goods so distinctive.

You might not notice the big update to the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) just by looking at it. Outside of the new CPU, it's nearly identical to the early 2020 model it's replacing.

And, despite the fact that the update is confined to the M1 processor, it has received a significant power bump. It's three times faster than comparable Windows laptops and is 2.8 times faster than the one it replaces. It also has a better battery life compared to older generations.

Is the MacBook Pro 13-inch still worth buying in 2022?

Yes, absolutely. It has an M1 chip in it, which is still a better option than Intel chips. The MacBook Pro with M1 is one of the greatest computers you can purchase right now, with an incomparable combination of speed and resilience.

The best way to describe the MacBook Pro M1's performance is that it dissolves the boundaries that stand in your way of getting things done. It's almost as though the laptop is not even there.

Plus, it has a gigantic battery life. Even if you’re a heavy user (using apps like affinity photo, graphic design, 3D rendering, etc., which eat the battery), it will still last for 10 to 16 hours.
