Apple’s latest MacBook Pros are some of the most powerful laptops you can get right now, and they come with a hefty price tag to match. But if you’ve been keeping an eye on 16 inch model, you can buy it for $200 less than usual right now thanks to Amazon’s new sale. The online retailer has the 512GB model for $2,299 and 1TB version for $2,499, both of which are record low prices.
These are the much-awaited MacBook Pros, not only for their impressive power, but also for their equally improved connectivity. We have given the laptops M1 Pro and M1 Max a score 92 for great performance, a lovely Liquid Retina XDR Display, great speakers, and solid battery life. Both machines blow every Windows machine we reviewed last year when it comes to performance benchmarks, and we didn’t notice any slowdown when the laptop ran on battery power. Plus, you’ll get plenty of use out of it before it needs to be powered on – the 14-inch laptop lasted about 12.5 hours in our testing, while the 16-inch model lasted just over 16 hours.
Power alone makes these laptops solid choices for videographers, photographers, and other creatives, but they’re made even better by the new ports Apple includes. included on both laptops. You’re no longer limited to a few Thunderbolt ports – both machines now include a full-size HDMI port, a MagSafe power connector, three USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, and an SD card slot. So, while you’ll still need an adapter if you have a USB-A accessory, connecting the machine to other peripherals is much easier than on previous models. They may still be expensive even at this discount, but it’s hard to beat the latest MacBook Pro if you’re looking for a new laptop with as much power as possible, plus all the latest features. Apple’s.
