Apple MacBook Pro 16 2021 M1 Max

Apple MacBook Pro M1 Max is the latest most powerful MacBook powered by Apple’s own SoC of M1 Max. It offers plenty of performance and 120 Hz ProMotion technology. The Macbook Pro M1 Max measures at 1.68 x 24.81 x 24.81 cm and weighs at 2.1kg. As for colour options, it has Silver and Space Grey colour for user to choose from. At first glance, the new MacBook Pro doesn't look very different from its Intel-based predecessor, which was last updated in late 2019. However the keyboard reveal a slight difference. Apple has decided to ditch the unpopular Touch Bar. This has been replaced by a row of more traditional physical function keys, including a larger escape key which is a welcoming detail. The Apple M1 Max has 10 cores (1 efficiency cluster with 2 cores + 2 performance clusters with 4 cores each). As for GPU cores, the M1 Max comes with four GPU clusters, each with eight cores. The Apple MacBook Pro has an optional performance mode. However, it only affects the fan speed and therefore the surface temperature under load, but there is no performance difference from the standard auto setting.
By default, the Apple Macbook Pro M1 Max comes with a fast PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive with 2TB of storage. However user can upgrade to a maximum of 8TB SSD storage. As for RAM, it comes with 64GB of LPDDR5-6400 RAM. As for display, the 16.2” display also supports XDR with 1000 nits of continuous brightness (1600 nits of peak brightness) and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Liquid Retina displays also support a variety of color standards, including sRGB for web graphics and design and DCI-P3 for video editing work, and there's even a handy drop-down menu in the Display Preferences panel that lets user quickly select Color standards required for different tasks. Needless to say, the display is impressively bright, sharp and colorful.
This new model is packed with lots of ports and connectors, including three USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports, HDMI, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and even a slot for an SDXC card. The FaceTime camera, now living in a notch inside the 16.2-inch screen will get a long overdue upgrade to 1080p. In conclusion, Apple MacBook Pro M1 Max is equipped with the fastest version of the M1 Max processor that includes 32 GPU cores, the MacBook Pro 16 2021 offers not only convincing performance, but mostly cooler temperatures, as well as a relatively quiet fan. All of this suggests that Apple is finally focusing again on the needs of its professional users. It is suitable for power users who edit a lot of video or plan to use more external screens.

MacBook Pro 16" (2021) Review: Seven Months "On The Max"
Source: MrMobile English
The Apple MacBook Pro 16 (2021) has been my main machine for the past seven months. It’s not polished. It’s not pretty. It’s got grease on the keycaps, a tattered folding stand on the bottom, and a worn leather skin on top. It’s traveled tens of thousands of miles with me, and it’s produced every one of the MrMobile videos I’ve uploaded since I bought it (including this one). While I prefer other laptops for play, 2021’s MacBook Pro is an indispensable tool for my work – the best I’ve ever used. Join me to see why, in MrMobile's MacBook Pro 2021 Review.

Source: Tom's Guide English
The MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) is an across-the-board improvement over its predecessor, so if you’ve been considering investing in a 16-inch Pro this is unquestionably the model to buy. With its remarkable battery life, outstanding speed, smartly redesigned chassis and big, beautiful screen, this is a versatile pro laptop that will serve you equally well in work or play. And if you’re willing to pay the price, configuring it with one of Apple’s brawny new M1 Max chips will guarantee you some of the best performance you can buy in a MacBook. But if you look back over our test results you’ll see that in many key areas, the 16-inch Pro with a top-of-the-line M1 Max chip didn’t perform much better than the 14-inch Pro 2021 with an M1 Pro chip. Most of the time we saw nearly the same performance from a roughly $3k 14-inch Pro 2021 as we did from a 16-inch Pro 2021 that costs just over $4k, though the M1 Max did deliver significantly better performance than the M1 Pro in video games and 3DMark.

Fast, with a razor-sharp screen, excellent build quality, and a happy reunion with MagSafe, HDMI and SD card readers, the 16in MacBook Pro with M1 Max is a high ranking professional computer. This is not a computer for the average user - if that's you buy a 13in MacBook Pro with an M1 processor instead. This is a computer for professional users that will render more pixels than there are people on Earth.

Apple MacBook Pro 16 M1 Max Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The MacBook Pro 16 is a star in all the ways that matter. It’s a leader in battery life, display quality, and performance for its size. The keyboard is great, the touchpad is top-notch, and its design is gorgeous. It’s in every way an upgrade from the 2019 MacBook Pro 16 it replaced. Additionally, Apple’s transition from Intel to its own custom chips unlocked a new world of apps ported from iOS. However, most apps designed for Intel-powered Macs still work. macOS pairs well with cloud services like iMessage, Photos, iCloud Drive, and Apple Arcade, making it ideal if you already own an iPhone. The Windows alternatives, such as Dell’s XPS 17 and Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Extreme, are often more affordable and offer entry-level models for those on a modest budget. Still, the MacBook Pro 16 remains a good value overall. Its performance and battery life beat the competition. That won't help if you can’t afford it, of course. If you can, though, don’t let the price turn you off. The MacBook Pro 16 is worth it.

Apple MacBook Pro 16 (Late 2021) review – Apple teaches the industry a valuable lesson with this one
Source: Laptop Media English
Without a doubt – the M1 Max is the most powerful chip ever to be put on a MacBook. This sounded an awful lot like Apple itself. Let’s paraphrase – the M1 Max is the best all-around laptop chip to be ever made. In certain applications, it is the fastest, while in others gets beaten by the Core i7-11800H, and the Ryzen 9 5900HS. However, with the 32-core graphics card trading blows with the 130W RTX 3060, and the 100W RTX 3080 in different applications and even games, we can’t express our admiration enough. And it turns into anticipation for the future, where AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA step up their game. At the end of the day, you get great build quality, premium feel (albeit from an old-looking shell), and arguably the best speaker system on a laptop, which puts some BlueTooth speakers to shame. This laptop is a game-changer. It definitely needs improvements in some areas, but given the fact how easy the macOS is to use, and the plug-and-play nature of the ecosystem, we think that Apple taught the entire industry a valuable lesson. And we expect (and hope) the industry to respond.

As one of the newest and more expensive laptops on the market, it’s no surprise that I’m giving the MacBook Pro top marks in practice. Blazing speed, a great screen, and all day and then some battery life make this a great laptop for almost any use. However, the design is back to the basics and road warriors might want to consider a lighter, less bulky model. But, if you depend on your MacBook for demanding tasks, this is a must-buy.

The maxed-out MacBook Pro 16in M1 Max is overkill unless you have very specific requirements: a need to scythe through high-res footage; a career in complex 3D graphics, number crunching or audio projects; or an obsession with bragging rights. There is a middle ground. If you’re not fussed about laptop portability and weight but do care about display size, quality audio and raw power, the 16in M1 Pro would be an excellent option. And if you do want portability, make do with the smaller display and go for the 14in model. Either way, the 16in MacBook Pro is an objectively hugely impressive piece of kit. And that’s the case when considering the revamped design, improved display and audio, or the fact Apple’s this time listened to its pro audience and given them what they asked for.

100% Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch & 16-inch (2021) review: M1 puts the Pro back in MacBooks
Source: T3 English
The new MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch are triumphs. They solve just about all of the complaints of the old machines, while pushing the whole world of laptops forward by setting a new standard for performance in this kind of size. At the same time, these MacBook Pros really are for pros. The level of power they offer is so high that I would suggest that most people really should think about sticking with the M1 MacBook Air unless you're expecting to push the GPU to the limit here, or simply must have 32GB of memory. But the screen may well pull you back in, because even amateur photographers or those who watch movies on their laptop will be blown away by the image quality on offer here. If you just want a MacBook Pro because you like to have the greatest laptop, you should think about sticking with the lowest-end version. But for creative pros, the power on offer here is just awesome, and it's more flexible for working on the go than anything else on the market.

The MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) is an across-the-board improvement over its predecessor, so if you’ve been considering investing in a 16-inch Pro this is unquestionably the model to buy. With its remarkable battery life, outstanding speed, smartly redesigned chassis and big, beautiful screen, this is a versatile pro laptop that will serve you equally well in work or play. And if you’re willing to pay the price, configuring it with one of Apple’s brawny new M1 Max chips will guarantee you some of the best performance you can buy in a MacBook. But if you look back over our test results you’ll see that in many key areas, the 16-inch Pro with a top-of-the-line M1 Max chip didn’t perform much better than the 14-inch Pro 2021 with an M1 Pro chip. Most of the time we saw nearly the same performance from a roughly $3k 14-inch Pro 2021 as we did from a 16-inch Pro 2021 that costs just over $4k, though the M1 Max did deliver significantly better performance than the M1 Pro in video games and 3DMark.

14 & 16" MacBook Pro 2021 Review - Laptop REVOLUTION!
Source: Max Tech English
In this review, I'll cover various aspects of the new 14 and 16" MacBook Pros, including the three puzzle pieces that together make them the BEST laptops in the world: Design, Reliability and Performance. I also go through the backstory and how these MacBook Pros came to be, and what ultimately pushed Apple to ditch Intel. Finally, I go through a bunch of performance tests and recommend the models I think you should buy.

16in MacBook Pro (M1 Max, 2021) review: terribly fast and well built
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
This is the type of work that the MacBook Pro 14in and 16in are made for. And considering the pandemic and working from home, they are exemplary, as you can work anywhere with even the most demanding work, without the need for a desktop computer. Of course, professional machines have an equally professional price. The 2022 16in MacBook Pro costs from £2,399/$2,499, although it its the M1 Max you want you’re looking at £3,399/$3,499 (or, if you are happy to opt for the M1 Max with 24-core GPU option instead, a minimum of £2,999/$3,099). This is a breathtaking sum for an ordinary consumer who surfs, emails and flicks through the Pictures app. But for the professional user who has to render millions of pixels in a virtual 3D landscape or the editor who has to cut a feature film, who can now do it wherever they are, there is nothing to talk about. But damn it is expensive!

95% Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro (M1 Max, late 2021) review: Apple supercharges its flagship laptop
Source: Zdnet.com English
The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is expensive, but the top-end M1 Max chip proves that Apple Silicon can genuinely go toe-to-toe with the most powerful mobile workstations available from rival PC manufacturers. It also brings those extra little Apple touches to the table, such as the outstanding Liquid Retina XDR Display for high-end graphics and video work, and the laptop's sleek, slimline design. And, of course, there's the impressive battery life, which really throws down the gauntlet for Apple's Windows rivals. All of this suggests that Apple is finally focusing on the needs of its professional users once more.

16" MacBook Pro (M1 Pro & M1 Max) Review 2021
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Apple has finally released M1 versions of the 16” MacBook Pro for creatives. The 2021 model is available with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, and we tested both for this review so you can see the performance differences. The macOS laptop has a striking 16.2” Mini LED XDR display with 120Hz refresh (aka Pro Motion), Magic Keyboard with Fn row (no more touch bar), Thunderbolt 4, MagSafe 3 fast charging, and the return of HDMI and an SD card slot. It’s available with up to 64GB unified memory, up to 8TB storage and your choice of a 16, 24 or 32 core GPU (we test the 16 and 32 core GPUs). A 100 WHr battery, compact charger and long battery life round up the features. We compare these new 16” models’ performance to the outgoing 2019 model as well as competing Windows laptops like the Razer Blade 15, Dell XPS 15, Surface Laptop Studio and desktop replacement gaming laptops.

95% Apple Macbook Pro 14 And 16 Review: Return To Form
Source: The Verge English
So: those are the new MacBook Pros. They are some of the best laptops we have ever tested, with an unbeatable combination of lightning fast performance and tremendous battery life. And Apple seems to have come back to reality in terms of design — well, apart from that notch. But adding some useful ports and ditching the Touch Bar are just smart, practical choices, and honestly worth the upgrade for many people. So what are the knocks? The biggest one is that these machines are expensive. If you’re an actual pro, the prices are perhaps easy to justify given the performance, but if you’re just doing everyday productivity work, you can get a lot of great laptops for less than the $2,000 starting price of the 14-inch MacBook Pro. And Apple only putting 16GB of RAM in the base models and charging $400 for an upgrade to 32GB is just ridiculous. The other is that Apple is still in the midst of the transition to its own chips, and the software ecosystem isn’t totally there. These machines feel like the future, but parts of that future are still a little bit hazy

86% MacBook Pro 2021 review: Apple's M1 Max chip makes a big difference
Source: CNet English
That's the million-dollar question -- or at least the $2,500-and-up question. Every video editor and creative pro I've spoken to is either excited to get or has already preordered one. For that audience, the decision comes down more to screen size and a small, medium or large number of GPU cores. If you're not specifically going to use these new hardware capabilities and just want the latest, coolest MacBook, know that you're making what is essentially a vanity purchase. The plain old $999 MacBook Air, with its own M1 Chip, is still the most universally useful laptop most people can buy. You do, however, lose out on the new 1080p webcam, which is frankly fantastic. We will continue to update this review with additional test scores and analysis, including battery test scores (my initial video streaming battery test ran for 16.5 hours), in the coming weeks.

80% Apple MacBook Pro 16-Inch (2021, M1 Max)
Source: PC Mag English
So while the improved 16-inch MacBook Pro may be a stunning laptop in isolation, reanimating some of the essentials that Mac-minded pro creatives have been clamoring after for years, it isn’t quite the major leap forward for the MacBook Pro line that the new 14-inch model is. The latter is the clear choice for content creation professionals who need a mobile workstation that ably balances the competing demands of portability, affordability, and power. If you've got the dough, though, and your cutting-edge, high-res 4K or 8K workflow revolves around deskbound work in applications like Final Cut Pro and content employing the ProRes codecs, the M1 Max will bear further investigation.

92% MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch review (2021): Apple’s mighty Macs
Source: Engadget English
So if you’re in the market for one of these new computers, which should you get? If you’re mostly using it for general productivity tasks, then I’d lean towards the 14-inch model, which was just easier to travel with. It’s a good option for coders and people who may not need a ton of screen real estate. But all of the video and audio producers I’ve talked to were unequivocal: they wanted to go big with the 16-inch model. The biggest downside of the new MacBook Pros are their high prices — but really, what else do you expect from Apple? The 14-inch model, in particular, will probably give you the vapors if you're comparing it to the 13-inch MacBook Pro. But in the world of gaming and high-end productivity notebooks, Apple's pricing isn't that far off. The Razer Blade 14, for example, is just two hundred dollars less than the MacBook Pro 14-inch. Dell's XPS 15 OLED is around $500 cheaper than the cheapest 16-inch MBP, but that's with a CPU that's much slower than Apple's. Once you start speccing that machine up, though, you’ll likely pay close to $2,500.

MacBook Pro 16 (2021) Review: Apple finally does justice to Pros with the M1 Max
Source: XDA Developers English
To be blunt, the M1 Max MacBook Pro is overkill for the majority of consumers, including me, despite my semi-professional status as a video content maker. This is a machine for real, actual creative professionals who need a lot of horsepower on the regular to churn out their daily work. If your work involves twiddling your thumbs while waiting on your computer to finish its processing task, then there’s a good chance that this MacBook Pro is aimed at making your thumb-twiddling breaks a whole lot shorter. The cherry on top is that you can carry this machine around with fair ease, so you could be making use of all of this horsepower while at a hotel, on-site at some event, in a cafe, waiting at the airport lounge, or docked in your office or home. The Apple MacBook Pro (2021) puts the Pro back into Apple’s laptop lineup, and it goes beyond the lip service. If you are not a creative professional, if your main laptop use case is just to type words, surf the web, and watch YouTube videos, then buying this machine with M1 Max

We review the new MacBook Pro 16 with Apple’s latest M1 Pro processor in its most powerful version with 16 GPU cores. The Mini-LED panel once again impresses with great pictures just like on the smaller 14-inch model.

100% Apple MacBook Pro 2021 (14 and 16-inch) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The MacBook Pro 2021 is a wonderful, expensive and hard-to-ignore laptop. After a few years of MacBook Pros with hefty sacrifices, this feels like the most complete Apple product I’ve ever reviewed. From the reintroduction of some vital ports to the stunning Mini LED display and the wide array of powerful internals on offer, this is a fantastic machine for all those who are willing to part with the cash. It isn’t for everyone, though – and that’s absolutely fine. For those who want a laptop for word processing, browsing, Netflix and emailing, this machine is overkill; the MacBook Air M1 is far better choice. It also remains a poor choice for gamers, not because of what’s on offer, but due to MacOS. Simply put, this is the best laptop I have ever used.

Source: Techradar English
The MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) is one of the best laptops creative professionals can buy, thanks to its brilliant performance, stunning screen and long battery life. However, it is large and heavy, which is why the 14-inch MacBook Pro may be a better buy, unless you want the larger screen and longer battery life.

100% Apple MacBook Pro 16in (M1 Pro, 2021) review: Simply phenomena
Source: Expert Reviews English
All told, the performance, display and battery life make the MacBook Pro 16in (2021, M1 Pro) a pretty special laptop. Indeed, there’s no other machine on the market that can match its all-round capabilities. Sure, there are some Windows laptops that have more brute power and many that are better gaming machines. There are many much cheaper laptops that deliver perfectly serviceable levels of power and performance, too. But there are none, however, that manage to deliver the same levels of power and performance of the MacBook Pro 16in combined with the professional display quality – and none come anywhere near on battery life, either. In short, if you’ve always wanted a workhorse laptop that doesn’t short change you when it comes to working on the move, then the MacBook Pro 16in is the laptop for you. It may be expensive, but it is simply phenomenal.

100% Apple MacBook Pro (2021) review: How Apple says sorry
Source: Digital Trends English
The 2021 MacBook Pro is the pro laptop Mac fans have been waiting five years for. It’s a return to glory for a product that has felt outdated and underpowered for a long time. It has the best speakers, webcam, keyboard, trackpad, display, battery life, and port selection of any laptop I’ve ever tested. That’s a lot to get right in one laptop. Meanwhile, the performance will satisfy those looking for a machine that can keep with their workflows, especially those working in demanding, creative fields.

100% Apple MacBook Pro (2021) review: How Apple says sorry
Source: Digital Trends English
It’s not a phrase you’ll hear a company like Apple ever utter. It won’t grovel or ask for forgiveness either. Instead, Apple corrects its errors by putting out a product like the 2021 MacBook Pro. Whether it’s the thickness of the chassis, the Touch Bar, or the ports, the MacBook Pro represents a reversal of nearly every major design decision from the previous generation. And yet, the 2021 MacBook Pro manages to be more than just a referendum on the 2016 MacBook Pro. It’s bold in ways that make it exciting, yet familiar in ways that keep it convenient. You might even call it the best of both worlds — which is exactly what you want in a “pro” laptop.

Review: The new 16-in. MacBook Pro is Apple to the core
Source: Computerworld.com English
If you need this kind of power (or the expansive 16-in. display), the MacBook Pro is a definite must. This model combines all that made its predecessor great, addresses all the criticisms people had, and underpins everything with a chip that performs like no other. And yes, next year’s model will be better again, but this model is already better than what was once seen as best. While I would like for the Apple logo on the lid to light up, I consider this MacBook Pro to be a triumph at every level, from the years of work on the internal processor to the OS and display. Such compromises as do exist (like that notch), really only serve to show how far Apple has knocked this particular ball out the ball park.

16" MacBook Pro (M1 Pro & M1 Max) Review 2021
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Apple has finally released M1 versions of the 16” MacBook Pro for creatives. The 2021 model is available with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, and we tested both for this review so you can see the performance differences. The macOS laptop has a striking 16.2” Mini LED XDR display with 120Hz refresh (aka Pro Motion), Magic Keyboard with Fn row (no more touch bar), Thunderbolt 4, MagSafe 3 fast charging, and the return of HDMI and an SD card slot. It’s available with up to 64GB unified memory, up to 8TB storage and your choice of a 16, 24 or 32 core GPU (we test the 16 and 32 core GPUs). A 100 WHr battery, compact charger and long battery life round up the features. We compare these new 16” models’ performance to the outgoing 2019 model as well as competing Windows laptops like the Razer Blade 15, Dell XPS 15, Surface Laptop Studio and desktop replacement gaming laptops.

14in MacBook Pro vs 16in MacBook Pro (2021)
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
As you can see from the above, the decision about whether to choose the 16in MacBook Pro or the 14in MacBook Pro isn't about power or capability, because both models can take advantage of the same M1 Pro or M1 Max chips. The choice is between a larger 16in display and longer battery life, or a lighter Mac laptop. The size of the display is less important if most of the work you will be doing on it will be at a desk with an external monitor plugged in, similarly battery life only matters if you are often away from a power source. The real decision is about whether you need the M1 Pro or M1 Max. If you only need the basic M1 Pro offering, with 8-core CPU and 14-core GPU then only the 14in MacBook Pro offers that option. If on the other hand you need the ultimate M1 Max you can get that with either the 14in or 16in MacBook Pro - and choosing the 14in MacBook Pro will save you money. The element that will probably effect your decision most of all is your budget, and basically you can get more for your money if you choose the 14in MacBook Pro.
