The new 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro or M1 Max have just been announced! Here is where you can buy it.

This hotly anticipated sequel to the years-old 16-inch MacBook Pro gives it a warmly-welcomed upgrade in performance, ports and battery life — set to launch on October 26. 

It all starts with the mini LED display, which if the M1 iPad Pro is anything to go by, will give you brilliant contrast ratio, deep colors and a variable refresh rate. The Touch Bar is gone (finally) and with a whole host of ports from the SD card slot and HDMI out, to MagSafe, this system just got far more convenient.

And of course, there’s the new M1 Max chip. This offers a 4x improvement in graphics and 2x faster video encoding performance — sheer performance on the bleeding edge with 70% less power consumption.

This is a huge upgrade to the prosumer-grade portables and no doubt, a lot of people are pretty excited to snap one up (me and all the other M1 MacBook Pro users are looking on with jealousy).
