Yesterday Apple launched, as we all expected, two new MacBook Pro models, although to tell the truth, what it did was internally renew both the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. Even so, there are many new things that Apple has introduced and therefore, in this post we are going to tell you about them all.
What’s new in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro
The main and most important thing about these two MacBook Pro models is that Apple has renewed its processors, changing the ones they had so far from the M1 series, that is, the M1 Pro and the M1 Max, for their evolutions in the M2 series. , that is, the M2 Pro and the M2 Max. Therefore, from now on, all those who want to buy a MacBook Pro will be able to choose between these two chips that, of course, if they offer users anything, it is power and performance. Also, you have to keep in mind that the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro have the same configuration opportunities, in fact the only thing that changes between them is the screen size, and obviously also the price, but at the same time. When configuring them you have the same options in both.
As one would expect, the inclusion of these two new processors means that the performance of these computers increases considerably in practically all aspects. For starters, the cpu performance is 20% faster, same as the graphics performance, which increases your speed by 30%. All this caused by the increase of two cores that Apple has introduced in the CPU. But beware that the CPU is not the only thing that the Cupertino company has touched, since the GPU has also increased five cores. In line with this, a fundamental aspect for computers of this type is RAM memoryWell, Apple now gives the possibility of reaching up to 96 GB, a real outrage and it is necessary to take into account that with the previous models you could reach up to 64 GB.
But beware that this does not stop here, since one of the points that always worries all users who work on the move with a laptop of these characteristics is the autonomy. Well, to begin with, it should be noted that Apple laptops have always had great autonomy, but Apple has managed to make them, despite being more powerful computers, also more efficient computers, managing to add one more hour of autonomy and thus arriving, according to official figures from the Cupertino company, at 22 hours of autonomya real pass.
However, it’s not all good news, and it is that as has been the case with all Apple equipment, these two MacBook Pro models have also risen compared to their predecessors. We first focus on the 14-inch MacBook Pro, which previously started at 2,249 euros and now part of 2449 euros, that is, a rise of 200 euros. For its part, the 16-inch MacBook Pro started at 2,749 euros and now part of 3049 euros, which means an increase of 300 euros. Obviously they are equipment focused on professionals, but it is certainly not good news that in order to buy a MacBook Pro you have to spend at least 2449 euros.
