Built for all types of creatives, including developers, photographers, filmmakers, 3D artists, music producers, and more, the Apple 16.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip is the ultimate pro mobile workstation for the ultimate user.

The system features the Apple M1 Pro 10-Core Chip, which provides the power and performance needed to handle your professional workflows. The 16.2" Liquid Retina XDR display features a 3456 x 2234 resolution, 1,000 nits of sustained brightness, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, P3 color gamut support, and more. With up to 512GB of SSD storage, you'll be able to load massive files and launch apps quickly, enabling you to work with photo and video libraries from almost anywhere.

Designed for All Types of Creatives
Apple M1 Pro
Packed with 33.7 billion transistors, the Apple M1 Pro 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 Pro delivers the performance you need without sacrificing power efficiency. The 10-Core CPU features eight performance cores and two high-efficiency cores. The 16-Core Neural Engine provides support for on-device machine learning acceleration and improved camera performance. The M1 Pro offers up to 200 GB/s of memory bandwidth as well as support for up to 32GB of unified memory. The efficient architecture of M1 Pro means they deliver the same level of performance whether MacBook Pro is plugged in or using the battery. The M1 Pro also features enhanced media engines with dedicated ProRes accelerators specifically for pro video processing. With up to a 16-Core GPU, the M1 Pro delivers up to 70 percent faster CPU performance than the M1.
16.2" Liquid Retina XDR Display
Featuring mini-LED technology, this MacBook Pro houses a 16.2" Liquid Retina XDR display. Delivering up to 1,000 nits of sustained, full-screen brightness, a high 1,600 nits of peak brightness, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and a billion colors, the Liquid Retina XDR display can handle the extreme dynamic range of HDR content, providing detailed shadows, brilliant specular highlights, deeper blacks, and vivid colors. The display is less than 4 mm thin, which is achieved by having seven films and diffusers that mix and shape the light efficiently. The oxide thin film transistor (TFT) allows pixels to charge twice as fast as before.
ProMotion - Up to 120 Hz Refresh Rate
With ProMotion technology, the MacBook Pro automatically varies the refresh rate to match the motion of your onscreen content. This helps preserve battery life while also making tasks feel more fluid and responsive. This means that the display can have up to a 120 Hz refresh rate. Video editors will also have the option to lock in a refresh rate that is optimal for their footage.
P3 Wide Color Gamut
The narrow-band LED-powered backlight allows the MacBook Pro to represent the P3 wide color gamut for brilliant, true-to-life color in photos and videos.
Storage - Bring Your Whole Studio with You
The MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage so you can take your photo or video libraries with you no matter where you're headed. And with superfast speeds, massive files load in an instant and pro apps launch in a blink. This particular model comes with a 512GB SSD.
Thunderbolt 4
Thunderbolt 4 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the versatility of the USB Type-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. The MacBook Pro is equipped with three ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 4 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it's always right side up.
MagSafe 3
MagSafe 3 makes connecting a power cable quick and easy while also protecting your MacBook Pro. Apple also brings fast charging to the MacBook Pro, allowing you to charge up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
High-Fidelity Audio
Spatial Sound Speakers and Better Mics
The MacBook Pro features a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system, which has two tweeters for a clearer soundstage as well as four force-cancelling woofers, resulting in 80 percent more bass. The sound system also supports spatial audio, providing a three-dimensional audio experience, whether you're listening to music or watching a movie in Dolby Atmos. Apple also has studio microphones that have a lower noise floor, resulting in clear calls as well as voice recordings.
Full HD 1080p FaceTime HD Camera
Now with a Full HD 1080p FaceTime HD camera, the MacBook Pro uses the ISP and Neural Engine in M1 Pro and M1 Max for computational video that enhances video quality.
System Navigation
Physical function keys are back with the Magic Keyboard on the MacBook Pro. Replacing the Touch Bar, the familiar, tactile function keys have made their return. There is even a wider ESC key.
Touch ID
The Touch ID enables fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
Force Touch Trackpad
Speed your workflow with Force click and multi-touch gestures.
All-Day Battery Life
From pro workflows to everyday tasks, the MacBook Pro delivers power efficiency while still maintaining performance. The MacBook Pro can deliver up to 21 hours of video playback.

Apple MacBook Pro 16" M1 Pro Late 2021 Reviews

Best universal laptop

By Odil
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-25

I bought this laptop after my 27 iMac died after 11 years of service. I love iMacs for their size since I use them primarily for video editing. But I needed something more mobile. Macbook Pro does the job, performs fast, yet is more powerful than what I had before.

Perfect workhorse for my needs

The M1 MacBook Pro has been an absolute beast at handling any task I throw at it and its processing power has made music production and visual fx work an absolute breeze! No more waiting hours for my projects to finish rendering!

I've had MacBooks in the past and loved them all. I'm having a little adjustment period getting used to the keyboard which seems less responsive than pervious models and less solid. Also, the track pad seems to be a little easy to manage than previous.

The screen is gorgeous and the battery life is great. I don't carry my charger with me anymore. This can tackle many complex tasks simultaneously. And it has a fingerprint reader.

A Great Computer!

This is the first time I have purchased and used a non Windows computer as my daily driver. I can say that I made the right choice, the battery life of this thing is amazing with 12+ hours of work everyday. Not only that but the screen quality is second to none, a great way to watch videos and just work, the quality and colors and brightness is amazing. A great purchase all around!!!!

Like stepping in to the future!

I bought this computer to replace my 2015 MBP. The 2015 model still handled Photoshop and Lightroom well but really bogged down on video editing. This M1 Pro model is amazing! It boots and launches apps SO FAST. Running Lightroom and Photoshop is amazingly fluid and on FCPX I can now edit 4K60P footage without creating proxies (just amazing). This computer runs cool as a cucumber, the fans have not needed to turn on once and stays cool to the touch. Because the computer is so energy efficient (running cool), the battery life is amazing! I took of 1 star because it's pretty pricy in my opinion, $500 less and I would give it 5 stars. B&H is great (as always) selling the computer for $300 off list and I saved the 8% tax buy using the Payboo credit card.

Do not buy a computer from B&H

By Steven

The computer may or may not work properly. It will be difficult to assess the longevity of a product that arrived with all boxes badly damaged. In the end, I opened it just to see if it works, and I alone must bear the responsibility of that decision. B&H's responsibility further compounds this issue. The box is only padded on the top and they only tape the long seams on the top and bottom. Given that the shipper went above and beyond with destroying the package, this was easily facilitated by B&H. After relaying these issues, B&H encouraged me to reach out to the manufacturer (who has nothing to do with anything). They were helpful, yet warned that they would never sell or ship anything with the level of damage I described, or encourage the buyer to keep the product if it was caused solely by the shipper. After opening the box to determine if the item was damaged, I have relinquished by right to return the item. This is my fault. However, if you want to purchase a new computer, please visit a physical store, even if it costs significantly more.

The place to purchase a MacBook Pro

By Marion R

I knew which MacBook Pro I wanted. I knew the price from Apple. The only thing was financing. B&H had the computer, at a lower price and provided me a seamless process to financing my purchase. I have purchased from B&H in the past through my employer and was never disappointed. So, I looked for what I was looking for and found B&H again. I must say they were good in the past, but this last purchase was even better. I highly recommend B&H for any of your electronic needs.

I have a 2013 Mac Mini and am thinking about a laptop replacement. How much hard drive space do you need for that configuration, using mainly Lightroom or Adobe applications?
Asked by: Anonymous
When choosing an Apple 16.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip, the storage space will depend on the user and if they are using internal storage or external storage. For many people, the 512GB is enough and they have most of their storage on an external hard drive.

Yes, the M1-based (and M2-based) Macs such as the Apple 16.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip (Late 2021, Space Gray) (B&H# APMBP16SG06) run Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio (Activation Card) (B&H# BLDRCCS2) very well. This has especially been the case ever since Blackmagic Design's release of version 17.3 of Resolve. By now, even the rendering is speedy.
