For creatives, Apple has now produced M1 models of the 16" MacBook Pro. The M1 Pro and M1 Max processors are available in the 2021 model, and we tried them for this evaluation to see how they perform. The macOS laptop features a 16.2" Mini LED XDR display with 120Hz refresh (also known as Pro Motion), a Magic Keyboard with Fn row (no more touch bar), Thunderbolt 4, MagSafe 3 fast charging, and the return of HDMI and an SD card slot. It comes with up to 64GB of unified memory, up to 8TB of storage, and a 16, 24, or 32-core GPU (we test the 16 and 32 core GPUs). The characteristics are rounded off by a 100 WHr battery, a compact charger, and a long battery life. These new 16" models are compared.
