Built for all types of creatives, including developers, photographers, filmmakers, 3D artists, music producers, and more, the Apple 14.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip is the ultimate pro mobile workstation for the ultimate user.

The system features the Apple M1 Pro 8-Core Chip, which provides the power and performance needed to handle your professional workflows. The 14.2" Liquid Retina XDR display features a 3024 x 1964 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 8-Core CPU features six 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.
14.2" Liquid Retina XDR Display
Featuring mini-LED technology, this MacBook Pro houses a 14.2" 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.
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
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.
Touch ID
The Touch ID enables fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
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.
From pro workflows to everyday tasks, the MacBook Pro delivers power efficiency while still maintaining performance. The MacBook Pro can deliver up to 17 hours of video playback.
Force Touch Trackpad
Speed your workflow with Force click and multi-touch gestures.

Apple MacBook Pro 14" M1 Pro 8-Core 2021 Reviews

I Like It

By Nevan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-02-01

It works well. I had to make some changes to the settings early on due to the defaults being quite silly, and there are a few OS changes to learn after swapping from a Windows computer. The speakers are excellent. Had to buy a mouse compatible with the thunderbolt port almost immediately due to the trackpad being uncomfortable. The lack of compatibility with my Steam games library is also a downside of the OS. It has solid battery life, I usually don't have to worry about charging. For the most part, I really like it and am satisfied with it, although it is not a perfect laptop with a few Mac OS quirks and some hardware aspects dampening my enjoyment somewhat.

Worth it!

B&H has such great deals, I was able to buy the laptop I needed for work without breaking the bank. Super easy check out, and pick up, great costumer service. Apple gives lots of choices for this model, I went for the middle range specs knowing I wouldn't need the more high end features, would recommend for professional video and photo editing.

This is an unusually large advance over previous models, especially in raw computing power, but also in fun things like screen and headphone support.

Picked the right machine after a good conversation with sales on the floor. Installation of need applications has so far been very smooth.

Not so Pro

This computer is a good intermediate option. It is a good choice for productivity or even basic programming. But it could be better suited for gaming or advanced programming, such as machine/deep learning and data science. Libraries for ML development still need to be fixed, and Apple Silicon GPU can not stand up with Nvidia GPUs. Last but not least, it has excellent construction but is somewhat heavy.

Best Little Bang for the Buck

Industry professional user of M1 Max machines who didn't want the bulk of carrying around the 16 as a personal computer. The 14 M1 Pro is, for me, the perfect, future-proofed, personal use machine that could, in a pinch, sub in for the larger 16. The size/weight/power ratio is spot on and a better combination for the price than the M2 Air. If you can find it on sale, get it.

Super rapida

La compre para correr Lightromm Classic y Photoshop y ambos trabajan muy bien. El uso de los pinceles y detalles los hace rapido. Su pantalla es fenomenal.

The Apple 14.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip (Late 2021, Space Gray), would not have a data plan, so unless you are using a WiFi mobile hot spot you would not be able to use it as a GPS.
