Used by students, creative professionals, and more, the Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro now features Apple's first chip designed specifically for Mac. The Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC).

With the active cooling system and up to 20 hours of video playback, the MacBook Pro can handle your tasks with ease.

The 13.3" Retina Display has a 2560 x 1600 resolution at 227 ppi as well as 500 nits of brightness. It also supports the P3 wide color gamut which allows for more vibrant colors. This ensures true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, which are essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing. With True Tone technology, the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience.

Connect to the internet via Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and use compatible wireless peripherals and accessories with Bluetooth 5.0. The two Thunderbolt 3 ports provide USB4 support and can even connect to the Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution. Apple also included studio-quality mics for clear recordings and calls. There is also Apple's latest camera ISP in the M1 chip, which enables sharper images and more details in shadows and highlights in video calls. Keep your MacBook Pro secure with Secure Enclave in M1 as well as Touch ID. The Touch Bar allows for shortcuts, the backlit Magic Keyboard provides a comfortable typing experience, and the Force Touch trackpad allows for precise cursor control, pressure-sensing capabilities, and Multi-Touch gestures.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

Apple M1 Chip
Packed with 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O, and more into a single system on a chip (SoC). Built with 5nm process technology, the Apple M1 delivers the performance you need without sacrificing power efficiency. The Apple M1 features four high-performance cores, each designed to run a single task, which allows for multithreaded workloads. There are also four efficiency cores to handle lighter workloads, using only a tenth of the power while still delivering fast performance. This means the Apple M1 performs up to 3.5 times faster than the previous generation while still delivering battery life up to 17 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 20 hours of video playback.
13.3" Retina IPS Display
The MacBook Pro features a 13.3" Retina Display with 500 nits of brightness. The Retina Display features a 2560 x 1600 resolution and 227 pixels per inch. It also supports the P3 wide color gamut, which features 25% more colors than the commonly used sRGB gamut, for even more vibrant greens and reds. The display is calibrated at the factory for accurate gamma, white point, and primary colors.
True Tone Technology
With True Tone technology, the display and Touch Bar deliver a more natural viewing experience for design and editing workflows, as well as everyday tasks like browsing the web and writing email.
Touch Bar
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. The multi-touch, Retina-quality display changes automatically based on what you're doing, from showing traditional system controls, such as volume and brightness, to more directly interacting with or browsing through content. Intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text improve the typing experience, and you'll be able to customize the Touch Bar to fit your needs. The Touch Bar can also adapt to apps, such as Mail, Safari, Messages, and even third-party apps like Adobe Photoshop, so you'll have access to useful functions previously hidden in menus.
Touch ID
A Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the power button, so you can quickly log into your account, even when another user is logged in. You can also use it with Apple Pay to securely purchase things over the web.
Magic Keyboard
The Magic Keyboard on this MacBook Pro features a scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm of key travel. There's also a physical Esc key and an inverted "T" arrangement for the arrow keys. Combined with the Touch Bar and Touch ID, the Magic Keyboard provides a comfortable, accurate typing experience.
Thunderbolt 3 with USB4 Support
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also supports USB4, allowing you to connect to more peripherals, including the Apple Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution.
Software Features
When compared to the previous generation, the M1-powered MacBook Pro can:
  • Build code in Xcode up to 2.8x faster
  • Render a complex 3D title in Final Cut Pro up to 5.9x faster
  • Fluidly design intricate game scenes in Unity Editor up to 3.5x faster
  • Perform ML tasks in Create ML up to 11x faster
  • Separate out beats, instrumentals, and vocal tracks from a recording in real time in djay Pro AI, thanks to the Neural Engine
  • Play back full-quality, 8K ProRes video in DaVinci Resolve without dropping a single frame
  • Compile four times as much code on a single charge, thanks to the performance per watt of the M1 chip
  • Future updates are coming to Adobe apps

    I had before the same laptop but from 2012.A huge progress in speed.To me that's the +.Unfortunatly the _ is the number of in/outputs.You cannot comfortably use it without an adaptator with several in/outputs.(I use an external hard disk and a SD card reader almost every day.),Globaly a good device,but finally quiet expensive when you add all you need to work fast and easy.(Ram and more space on the hard disk.)

    I upgraded to this one from a Macbook Air 13 with M1 but only 8gb ram and 256k disk space. The set up and transfer from mac to mac is so much easier and more efficient than a windows pc. I originally was going to hold out for an iMac but for the price difference and the fact that this MacBook has the memory and space I wanted I decided this was the one for me. Out of box to set up was a breeze and I love the streamlined Touch Bar is wonderful! I have no doubt this MacBook will exceed my expectations and completely convert me from Windows for good.

    Fake pricing.

    This is listing the plain old m1 macbook pro that retailed for this sale price when it was first released. Look closely. Its a trick. The 14 PRO m1 is on sale for 1500 and retailed for 1900. This model is old and they are using deceptive false pricing. Not cool.

    Amazing for photographers

    I'm a commercial photographer and have been very happy with this MacBook Pro. Editing has been a breeze, all the standard features have made my work flow efficient and couldn't be happier with this piece of essential equipment. I don't have too much knowledge on the M1 chip and it's performance but as of now, it's working just fine!

    A big step up from my 13.3 MacBook Air M1!

    First, the delivery was speedy, I love that I had to sign, and it arrived in pristine condition! Thanks to Apple the transfer from my MacBook Air to the MacBook Pro M1 was flawless, easy, and didn't take forever. I'm very pleased with my purchase, this MacBook with 1TB and 16gb of memory will last me a long, long time. Next up is an iMac to kiss Windows goodbye forever :)

    Asked by: Brett
    95 Fahrenheit is a temperature most people can easily associate with their environment, or physical self. On a laptop, in contact with your skin, it's almost 4 (f) degrees cooler than the average body temp. Broken back put me in bed with same "hot computer" issues....
