Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2021)

The 2021 MacBook Pro makes a triumphant return to targeting actual professionals. Almost all of the complaints of recent years have been addressed. Combined with the excellent performance of the new M1 Pro and M1 Max, the MacBook Pro once again lives up to its Pro name... and its Pro price tag.

What we like

Outstanding performance
Great battery life
Nice new display and webcam
Excellent audio
Ports and MagSafe are back

What we don't like

Notched display is debatable
120Hz not yet widely supported
Only HDMI 2.0 and 250MB/s UHS-II
