A lot of attention will go to the high price point, but the “low end” models will be more powerful, battery efficient, etc. than most every Windows laptop.— Steven Sinofsky – stevesi.eth (@stevesi) October 18, 2021
Apple's comparison chart also includes MSI's GE76 Raider 11UH-053 (the high-end PC laptop graphics), which ships with an RTX 3080— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) October 18, 2021
Apple got rid of the touch bar! Finally I can buy a new laptop.— Paul Graham (@paulg) October 18, 2021
i just want a macbook that can handle 126 tabs, three 1K+ row spreadsheets, tweetdeck, photoshop, slack and zoom at once. is that so much to ask?— paris martineau (@parismartineau) October 18, 2021
The new models feature a modernized, streamlined keyboard design that power users will be relieved to learn retains the escape key. However, the vowel keys have been eliminated, but can be accessed through an intuitive pulldown menu option.— matt blaze (@mattblaze) October 18, 2021

2020: We completely ruined your computer's main input. Our latest keyboard is better than ever!
2021: We restored your computer's connectivity. That's "what pros need"!
Apple: profiles in courage ✊🏼
most people won't care about the notch but it is kinda weird that they added a whole notch.....and no Face ID— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) October 18, 2021
the new macbook pro is the biggest mea culpa from apple in decades— dan-dor the relentless (@dcseifert) October 18, 2021

BREAKING: Tim Apple subpoenaed by House Intelligence Committee over previous remarks that claimed “Our customers love the TouchBar” and “Nobody actually misses MagSafe”— can (@can) October 18, 2021
With the best processor, biggest SSD and 64 gig of DRAM the new 14-inch Mac Pro costs close to $6,000— Don Clark (@donal888) October 18, 2021
Mac geekery: Apple kills the touch bar, adds back all the ports. But put a notch on the screen. Let the fanboy wars commence.— Benedict Evans (@benedictevans) October 18, 2021
MacBook Pro 2021: pay no mind to the ridiculous design decisions we've gaslit you with for the last five years, we're giving you what you really need: ports, MagSafe, physical keys. Courage!— Ryan Block (@ryan) October 18, 2021
The era of laptops is still over for me, not even slightly tempted by MacBook Pros — but boy do I want that M1 Max (or better) in a desktop! As of right now, it’s a toss-up between a future 30” iMac and a Mac Pro as to what machine I eventually upgrade to from this mini— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) October 18, 2021
This is not just feeds and speeds. There’s an entirely different and innovative computing architecture across these devices.— Steven Sinofsky – stevesi.eth (@stevesi) October 18, 2021
Today not everyone needs it, but that’s always been the case when new architectures are introduced.
M1 Pro: 33.7b transistors (2x M1)— Horace Dediu (@asymco) October 18, 2021
We're getting dangerously close to Apple launching a MacBook Pro Pro Max, and I'm 100% ready for it— David Pierce (@pierce) October 18, 2021
I’m not a big fan of Apple’s naming schemes these days, but M1 Pro and M1 Max feel like they make a lot more marketing sense than ‘M1X’ and ‘M1Z’. Much more appealing— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) October 18, 2021
M1 Max is insane.— Steven Sinofsky – stevesi.eth (@stevesi) October 18, 2021
Is it a laptop or is it an extraordinary incredibly ground-breaking beast? Who is to say.— Heather Kelly (@heatherkelly) October 18, 2021
M1 Pro— Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) October 18, 2021
70% faster CPU than M1
2x faster GPU than M1
Up to 32GB of unified memory
dying to know if the SD card slot is UHS-III— dan-dor the relentless (@dcseifert) October 18, 2021
For the most part, the MacBook Pro rumors were much more like leaked product plans than the idle speculation of the past. I imagine Tim will send out another memo about this that will then be posted on the Verge 15 minutes later.— Michael Gartenberg (@Gartenberg) October 18, 2021
M1 Macs running M1 Max is a mouthful.— Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) October 18, 2021
A very modestly upgraded 14" MBP—32GB RAM, extra GPU core, 2TB SSD—came to a whopping $3,900 with tax. So that's not happening.— DeWitt Clinton (@dewitt) October 18, 2021
This still feels like an entry-level model compared with the 16" MBP or a more fully upgraded 14". That's a steep starting price point.

What if they only added the notch to the MacBook Pro to have something else to walk back later and pretend it's revolutionary— Heather Kelly (@heatherkelly) October 18, 2021
My notch take is basically that if the end result was net negative surface area, I would be offended because no face id etc. But the net is _positive_ screen real estate (.2"x) so it's a bit eye rolling but hard to really care that much about in the end.— Panzer (@panzer) October 18, 2021
If Apple is accomplishing this performance and efficiency with the current M1 architecture it is mind-bending to think about what M2 architecture is going to accomplish.— Ben Bajarin (@BenBajarin) October 18, 2021
What we have now is GPU-class bandwidth for the integrated graphics as well.— 𝐷𝑟. 𝐼𝑎𝑛 𝐶𝑢𝑡𝑟𝑒𝑠𝑠 (@IanCutress) October 18, 2021
The low power consumption for the new M1 chips are nuts: Up to 21 hours of video playback on the 16inch model — *10* more hours than prior edition.— Patrick McGee (@PatrickMcGee_) October 18, 2021
welcome back, mac! so sorry about the notch...— Imran Chaudhri (@imranchaudhri) October 18, 2021
here's my tweet about apple today: weird to release a processor called M1 Max that goes into Macs, could get confusing, sort of a who's on first scenario, anyway that's my Analysis— Sam Biddle (@samfbiddle) October 18, 2021
why can't Apple just cut to the chase and tell me how many Chrome tabs I can have open on the new MacBook Pro— Joshua Benton (@jbenton) October 18, 2021
Usually, when you make a chip larger and pack more cores, you get performance but greatly sacrifice power efficiency (wattage).— Ben Bajarin (@BenBajarin) October 18, 2021
Have to credit Apple's architecture (and designers) with the unprecedented performance and efficiency delivered with these chips.
Apple making its own chips for computers and phones that are way faster and more efficient.— Rich DeMuro (@richontech) October 18, 2021
Google making its own chips for smartphones that are way faster and more efficient.
Will Samsung do the same or stick with Qualcomm???
It’s so wild that Apple is going to keep selling the M1 MacBook Pro 13.— Andrew Martonik (@andrewmartonik) October 18, 2021
The M1 Air is a fantastic entry-level machine. If you feel you need anything more, you should be going to a new MacBook Pro 14. The Pro 13 shouldn’t exist anymore.https://t.co/jShc5TWpI3
This new MacBook is gonna really make my HTML editor fly.— Kevin Fox is hopeful 🦊😷 (@kfury) October 18, 2021
So to confirm, the notch has notching to do with FaceID?— Joanna Stern (@JoannaStern) October 18, 2021
#1 app for new macbook pro: make the menu bar fully black so you can't see the notch 🥴— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) October 18, 2021
Love that half the new MBP features are: we ditched the Touch Bar, we gave you your ports back and we stopped screwing around with unreliable battery life. MagSafe is great, display sounds great, don't love the notch. But price really is for pros only.— Vlad Savov (@vladsavov) October 18, 2021
I dare someone to make a TouchBar dongle for the new macbooks— Pinboard (@Pinboard) October 18, 2021
RIP Intel MBPs. A 13X GPU increase generation over generation is going to make supporting older machines really, really difficult going forward— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) October 18, 2021
