MacBok Pro 16 inches

Tech Specs: 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Apple introduced the 16-inch MacBook Pro which runs on their new chips configurable with the M1 Pro and the M1 Max, Apple’s new 10-core processors with eight “high-performance” cores and two “high-efficiency” cores. The M1 Max has double the Pro’s GPU cores (32 to the Pro’s 16) and doubles the memory bandwidth, as well as 64GB of unified memory (the Pro has 32GB).

As with the 14-inch MacBook Pro that Apple also unveiled, the MacBook 16 features a 1080p camera, a six-speaker sound system that supports Spatial Audio, and a Liquid Retina XDR display which Apple claims delivers up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness. Apple also says the 16-inch model gets up to 21 hours of video playback, which is 10 additional hours as compared to the previous-generation MacBook Pro. The MacBook 16 also has a bit more screen real estate featuring a 16.2-inch display with 7.7 million pixels.

Pre-orders have begun for the MacBook Pro and will be available in stores on October 26. The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a starting price of $2499
