About this deal

Thanks to the room‑filling six‑speaker system and advanced algorithms, MacBook Pro supports spatial audio when playing music or video with Dolby Atmos, creating a sophisticated, three‑dimensional soundstage. We've compiled the MacBook Pro 2021 benchmarks, and pitted them against the likes of the Asus ProArt StudioBook 16 and HP ZBook Fury G8, too — for Geekbench 5. the World, Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Jordan Peele's Us, I repeatedly felt like I was seeing things better than I had in a while. The M1 Max-based 16-inch MacBook Pro (a 10-core CPU configuration, with 64GB of RAM) did a little better, at 12,683.

Not only have the internals had an upgrade thanks to the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, but the screen has been overhauled as well. What was perhaps most impressive about all of this, was that even when the MacBook Pro 14-inch was running on battery, there was no perceptible dip in performance. The 14-inch MacBook Pro delivered all-day performance, lasting 14 hours and 9 minutes on the Tom's Guide web browsing-based battery test (set to 150 nits). That’s why the new MacBook Pro camera has double the resolution — 1080p — and uses a lens with a wider aperture that lets in more light. The marquee features start with the M1 Pro chip, a seriously super-charged upgrade over the M1 chips that upped speeds and battery life last year.During your warranty period, if a fault arises, the labour and parts required to fix the problem are free of charge. The thinner bezels allow Apple to move the Menu Bar to the freed up space, and the notch only drops down far enough to be in that menu bar. Apple defines its restrictions on harmful substances, including definitions for what Apple considers to be “free of,” in the Apple Regulated Substances Specification. Testing this out with a benchmark, the 14-inch MacBook Pro hit 39fps on Rise of the Tomb Raider (at 1920 x 1200), while the 16-inch model soared to a super-smooth 73.

Unlike the notch of the iPhone camera, which caused its own share of controversy when it was introduced, the notch in the MacBook Pro 14-inch (and the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, which also has it) is flat. The 14-inch MacBook Pro ran Sid Meier's Civilization VI: Gathering Storm (at 1512x982) at 46 frames per second, a smoother rate than the 22 fps rate the XPS 13 (with Intel Iris Xe Graphics) had, though that ran at 1080p. It's worth pointing out that if you want the absolute top performance from a MacBook, you'll need to get the MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) M1 Max version, as that comes with an exclusive 'High Power Mode' which is designed to eke out even more performance. This allows the application to then take up even more screen space below it, resulting in more desktop real estate for working on.This appears to be six performance and two efficiency cores, and a 14-core GPU, and is available in the cheaper model of the MacBook Pro 14-inch.

A well-cared item that has seen limited use but remains in great condition ideally with the original packaging. Apple sells the MacBook Pro 2021 in the same two colors they've sold MacBook Pros in for years: silver and Space Gray. The Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPUs in the Surface Laptop Studio (66 fps) and Dell XPS 15 (67 fps) enabled smoothness that kicked everyone's butt here. If you’re budget conscious a fair condition system can be the ideal solution for those looking to save.This extra screen real estate is well used, offering you a much larger area to work on than the 13-inch model, without increasing the overall size of the laptop too much. Instead, it showed interactive buttons that were context sensitive and would change depending on the application you were using. Good - The item shows wear from consistent use, but it remains in good condition and works perfectly. MacRefresh Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for Limited Permission Credit Broking. This jump in battery life is fantastic, especially when you consider how much more powerful the laptop is.

The only way it would have looked better is if it had been in native 8K, but that’s asking a bit much. The 14-inch MacBook Pro (and its 16-inch sibling) have 1080 webcams, a leap up from the grainy 720p cams in the Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15, 2020 MacBook Pro and Razer Blade 14 (kudos to Microsoft for putting a 1080p webcam in the Surface Laptop Studio).

More details are available from Apple’s trade‑in partner for trade‑in and recycling of eligible devices. These devices will show signs of use, for example, scratches, scuffs, or dents, none of which will impede function. Tech enthusiast Quinn Nelson explained that he had issues with the iStat Menus utility when the Menu Bar options on the left and the icons on the right hit a breaking point.
