This goes down in MacBook Pro M2 Pro price history as its biggest discount yet. It's also among today's top MacBook deals.

We didn't test this new M2 Pro MacBook, its predecessor is our favorite powerhouse laptop. In our M1 MacBook Pro 14 review, we loved its excellent performance, battery life, and sleek, elegant design. We were also floored by its stunning display and generous amount of built-in ports. The M1 MacBook Pro earned an overall rating of out of 5-stars from us, backed by our Editor's Choice award.

We expect the new M2 MacBook Pro to be on par if not surpass the M1 MacBook Pro  in performance and reliability. 

If you want the best laptop to help you breeze through demanding, graphics intensive tasks, you can't go wrong with the M2 Pro-charged MacBook Pro.
