Apple unveils a new MacBook Pro which runs on the new M1 Pro, and M1 Max processors which deliver extraordinary performance and battery life and feature the world’s best notebook display and Apple calls it a new Game-Changing. These two models will be available in silver and space gray next week, with a starting price of $2,499 (approx. Rs.194,900 INR).
Available in two different models (14- and 16-inch models), MacBook Pro delivers groundbreaking processing, graphics, and machine learning (ML) performance whether running on battery or plugged in, as well as amazing battery life - enabling workflows previously unimaginable on a notebook.
The new MacBook Pro also features a stunning Liquid Retina XDR display, a wide range of ports for advanced connectivity, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and the best audio system in a notebook. Also, both modes have an HDMI port, so you can easily connect them to external screens or your television, but also an SD card reader. These are connections that were still missing from the previous model of the Pro from 2016. You can also charge the MacBooks via the magnetic MagSafe charger, but also via one of the three USB-C ports.
Combined with macOS Monterey, which is engineered down to its core to take full advantage of M1 Pro and M1 Max, the user experience is simply unrivaled. Shattering the limits of what a notebook can do, Apple Claims that MacBook Pro is designed for developers, photographers, filmmakers, 3D artists, scientists, music producers, and anyone who wants the world’s best notebook. The new MacBook Pro joins the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 to form the strongest lineup of pro notebooks ever.

“We set out to create the world’s best pro notebook, and today we’re excited to introduce the all-new MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max — a game-changing combination of phenomenal performance, unrivaled battery life, and groundbreaking features,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The all-new MacBook Pro adds a breathtaking XDR display, more ports like MagSafe 3, an advanced 1080p camera, and a sensational six-speaker sound system, all in a stunning new design. The new MacBook Pro simply has no equal and is by far the best pro notebook we’ve ever built.”
