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

The best macbook ever

By Ryan

Date: 2022-07-03

I bought the first version of the 16 macbook the moment it came out - but immediately was disappointed with the touch-bar, battery performance, and overall feel. This new Macbook is perfect. It's lighter, smoother, has a nice keyboard, and a welcome return to the manual keys for volume, brightness, etc...

Excellent B&H performance

Easy Payboo purchase and very fast delivery and well packed! Works properly and the migration assistant from my old Mac worked flawlessly.

Apple Care makes it Happen

The 16.2 MacBook Pro is great. The most noticeable improvements over my 2017 MacBook Pro are in the sound and the duration of battery charges. I expected greater speed and more bells and whistles and, of course, the benefit of a larger screen, and it delivers. What really makes the package is that it came with Apple Care. I encountered a few hiccups with migrating my files. The access to expertise is fast and invaluable. Screen sharing and issue resolved!

Works great for photography editing.

I am not a computer or software geek, but I will share a few thoughts. I upgraded from a 2015 MacBook Pro. 1) The faster ports are a big plus - USB-C and Thunderbolt 4. 2) with the M1 Pro chip, Zerene stacker runs about 3x faster than it did on my old Intel processor 3) LR and PS run on the M1 chip (I needed technical support to upload the correct version of LR Classic 2022...) LR tether requires the Apple background converter and a program restart, but after that it runs smoothly. AstroPixelProcessor has released a new version for the M1 Processor which runs just fine. I cannot get my old NIK collection (version 2) to run, but I am treating this as legacy software and running it on the old laptop when needed. So, with the caveat that this is a strictly qualitative review, I am very pleased.

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.
