Blazing fast M1
The Apple MacBook Pro has it all: An ultra-sharp LED-backlit Retina Display, Apple’s newest super-fast M1 eight-core processor, Bluetooth 5.0 for syncing up all your wireless accessories, a Force Touch trackpad and Touch Bar for ultimate control, and 8GB of memory paired with 256GB of on-storage. Phew!
"So far I am blown away, but not surprised, by the performance," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "For software development workloads the M1 is two to three times faster than my 2019 Core i7 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro."
Need more power? Need more speed? This Apple MacBook Pro model is the tech company’s quickest, brawniest laptop to date — thanks to the new M1 chip and the latest version of the macOS Big Sur operating system. It also has an insane battery life of up to 20 hoursper charge. Good luck trying to get that kind of longevity with any other laptop.
"I primarily use my MacBook Pro for music production and performance," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The M1 chip blows the Intel chips out of the water in terms of loading speed, battery life and ability to handle large Logic Pro projects with dozens of tracks, plugins, software instruments and live recordings. Battery life has also seen a significant improvement over my 2020 Intel machine."
