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 10-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 1TB 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.
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.
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 1TB 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 17 hours of video playback.

Apple MacBook Pro 14" M1 Pro 10-Core 2021 Reviews

Hot Machine!

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-20

I finally replaced my Mid 2010 15 MBP with the Late 2021 14.2 MBP. It's like I entered a whole new world of computing. My primary use of the MBP beyond email and web surfing is photo post-processing. The display is beautiful and the M1Pro with 10 cores, plus 32GB of memory make short work of the processing. The audio system also sounds great.

Working great!

Snappy and fast for normal task, so next I'll run a session (and let you know). Great product so far, with fast delivery.

Easily 4x faster than last intel Mac book pro (16, 8-core) and does it on battery without fans kicking on. Neural engines for audio edits are near real-time, battery last all day, even with davinci resolve and 4k timelines. Reminds me of 12 powerbook g4 era :)

I planned to wait for the M2 chip in the MBP but needed a laptop for travel sooner. This one is so perfect. It is handling large volumes of photos to process in Adobe LR like a champ.

Buy 14.2" Than 13" MacBook Pro

Highly recommend 14" MacBook Pro for 4K, 6k editing. 14" provides extra ports(compare specs.), not included with13". I ordered 1 TB, 16 GB memory, 16 core processor. But, more the better(depending on one's price range).

August 2022 - If you're looking for a laptop to do video editing, this one is great. Not to mention any lesser tasks.

The Apple 14.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip can edit photos with only 16GB of RAM but since the laptop can not be upgraded its best to get as much RAM as possible when you configure it.

Do you really need to sign in EVERY TIME you lift the lid? Is there way to bypass user ID login?
Asked by: Ray
No, if you do not want to sign in every time you open this Apple 14.2" MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Chip (Late 2021, Space Gray). You would need to change this in the settings. open System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General, and untick "Require password after sleep or screen saver begins". Also if you have an Apple Watch you can set it that it would unlock you password if you have the watch on.
