The Apple M1 chip has a lot of power. It is not just a next step for Mac- it's another level entirely. The 8-core CPU on the M1 chip makes your MacBook Pro more powerful and capable than ever before, with up to 2.8x faster processing performance than its predecessor or an astonishing 16 billion transistors packed into this tiny little thing! In addition, the neural engine will give you 11x faster machine learning capabilities as well as 20 hours of battery life from one charge - making this your most popular professional notebook yet! Smaller chips have always been better but now we've taken that idea to a whole new level: introducing our first ever system on a chip designed specifically for Macs and here is where things really get exciting...

Is this the power laptop to beat?

The Pro's performance is still excellent in this respect, anyway. If you have specific needs that prioritise lightness and battery life, you might consider the 13-inch MacBook Air, but for the majority of users, this entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is by far the better value.

The keyboard is fixed; the rest is exactly what you’d expect
  • - 4
Apple’s 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro is a competent, dependable computer. The upgraded model with the 10th Gen Intel processors outperformed my expectations in terms of speed and power even if it didn’t really impress me on battery life. I would like to see a bigger redesign next time, but that doesn’t mean this design is a problem. It’s just familiar in a time when much of the competition is finding ways to slim their bezels.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 proves Apple can make a potent processor to power a premium laptop with long battery life. It runs cool and quiet, and even Intel apps work just fine with Rosetta. Now if only we could get a 32GB option for true pros, as well as some more ports.
