praise and battery life
The Verge describes the new MacBook Pro as “the best combination of performance and efficiency” because although the performance has increased significantly, this is by no means at the expense of battery life. Apple documents an additional hour of video playback on the product pages, but even “everything as before” would be very good news in everyday life.
Engadget comes to even more impressive results: When the MacBook Pro M1 Max and MacBook Pro M2 Max compete against each other (in the test it was the 14″ versions), the 2021 model lasted 12:36 hours. The 2023 device managed the same test procedure but at 15:10 hours.
Performance – and Wi-Fi 6
While the performance of the MacBook Pro 2021 was beyond doubt, the new edition is known to have improved even further. As Jacob Krol from the street to put it in words, the performance is simply “crazy”. You have to look for points of criticism for a long time. If you really have to name one, then it’s the price difference compared to the MacBook Air M2 or MacBook Pro 13″ M2, which also offer plenty of performance. CNET adds that the switch to Wi-Fi 6E is definitely noticeable, because the transfer rate was much better in previous tests (480 Mbit/s instead of 390 Mbit/s).
According to all the feedback so far, Apple has made an already excellent notebook even better. Only the high entry price appears in the reviews as a negative feature. As has often been discussed, you have to spend a lot of money if you just want a 16″ notebook from Apple. You have to pay for the immense performance, whether you need it or not.
