Apple’s 14


In November, táo launched the 2021 laptop apple macbook Pro. Available in two sizes (14- and 16-inch), the company also introduced two new chips, the M1 Pro và the M1 Max. While I thought this new Mac would be overkill lớn me – I didn’t need the ports, ProMotion, miniLED, or the processor – I recently broke my 2019 16-inch laptop apple macbook Pro and needed a replacement.

Between buying the entry-level 2020 M1 laptop macbook Air & the new 14-inch M1 Pro macbook Pro, I decided to lớn go with the latter. Here’s my review of this computer from a heavy but non-pro user perspective.

First impressions on the design of the 2021 laptop apple macbook Pro

At first glance, I wasn’t a big tín đồ of the notch on the apple macbook Pro. I also found the entire black keyboard weird when I saw it at the store. In addition, I really used lớn love the cảm ứng Bar (for the wrong reasons – it’s so convenient to send emoji with that). But as the days go by, I’m just super into this new design.

Coming from a 16-inch khổng lồ a 14-inch is not that big of a deal. The screen is big enough for me to mở cửa two Safari windows side by side và work. Not only that, but the weight was super important in my decision, và the 14-inch is way lighter than my previous intel Mac.

I find the keyboard and trackpad very reliable, cảm biến ID always works fine, và I’m really into this miniLED display with ProMotion. It’s just really smooth khổng lồ switch between my iPhone 13 Pro and this Mac.

Last but not least, the reason why I’m not typing from the intel Mac anymore is that I stumbled over the charger and completely destroyed the computer. With the new laptop macbook Pro, it adds back the MagSafe connector, và wow, I didn’t realize how much I missed this feature that was once available on my 2010 apple macbook Pro.

Is the entry-level M1 Pro enough for me?


As I told you at the beginning of the article, I was between the macbook Air và the laptop apple macbook Pro. The difference is wild: apple macbook Air comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD, while the M1 Pro Mac comes with 16GB of RAM và 512GB of SSD.

If hãng apple had already introduced the rumored new macbook Air, I would have probably gone with that instead, but between these two existing models, I decided it was worth spending an extra $1,000 to have the latest và greatest tech with the new laptop apple macbook Pro.

I’m not a pro user, but I’m a heavy user. This is why I recommend Jeff Benjamin’s review on the 2021 apple macbook phiên bản pro (if you wanna talk specs). Here, I want to give you a perspective of someone who types the whole day, occasionally edits images with Pixelmator Pro, and also needs lớn have iMessage, Mail, Slack, và WhatsApp opened all the time.

For these tasks, I don’t have lớn say that everything works lượt thích a breeze for this powerful computer. Not only that, but it’s also very silent, doesn’t get hot (at least with these tasks), & opens everything in a blink of an eye.

It’s important khổng lồ say that I’m pretty sure that I would be able to do the same with the M1 laptop macbook Air, but I would probably nâng cấp it with double the RAM và storage to feel more secure with it throughout the years. That said, these were the reasons I didn’t over up with the Air version:

Old design;Lack of MagSafe connector;Terrible webcam;The display looked a bit too small.

Last question: does this apple macbook pro has an all-day battery?


While the first batch of M1 MacBooks was praised for the everlasting battery life, I was worried that a Pro cpu would consume way more energy and I would need lớn keep charging the Mac more than once during the day.

To my relief, the entry-level 2021 apple macbook pro holds up very well when I’m using it for the tasks I mentioned above. That said, it can last easily handle 10 hours of nonstop usage, but I bởi think it’s possible lớn stretch it a bit more khổng lồ 12 hours.

Again, having both MagSafe và USB-C options khổng lồ charge this machine is also a convenient experience.

Wrap up and final considerations

There’s a lot I don’t mention in this mini-review of the entry-level 2021 laptop macbook Pro. The reason is simple: we already reviewed this machine. If you want an in-depth look, you can find it here.

For this piece, what I’m trying khổng lồ answer is whether this macbook phiên bản pro is a good khuyến mãi for a heavy (but not a pro) user. Khổng lồ which I say, yes, absolutely. The miniLED display with ProMotion is gorgeous. You honestly don’t even pay attention lớn the notch – just lượt thích when táo bị cắn introduced the iPhone X. Having more ports is great, although having a MagSafe connector is the big deal. Keyboard, trackpad, and Touch ID are reliable as ever. Last, but not least battery life is great, which works out well for me since this was another feature I really needed.


Will I change my mind when hãng apple releases a new laptop macbook Air? Maybe. But as we can’t predict when or exactly what this macbook Air will feature, I can say that, right now, if you need a machine and want it lớn last for years to come, the entry-level M1 Pro macbook is more than enough.

Tweak it if you need a bit more power nguồn or storage, but heavily relying on iCloud and using only essential apps, I don’t see why I would need more RAM or storage at the moment – or in the years khổng lồ come.

You can find the 2021 M1 Pro apple macbook pro here at Apple’s Amazon store.
