ONE YEAR with the BEST MacBook Pro in the World | 14” MacBook Pro


I have actually had the 14 inch MacBook Pro for virtually a year now as well as I assume it’s the very best worth that Apple has to offer for someone who actually requires a MacBook Pro, as well as maybe also for a person that’s taking into consideration getting the M2 MacBook Air. Beyond efficiency, which will certainly obtain to in the future, there are a few things that I need as well as there are a couple of things that I desire when I’m purchasing a MacBook, as well as by the means, I was in fact able to discover this laptop computer for $1,586, which is nuts. All right, so the very first point I need is a great display and the extremely initial time that I checked out the 14 and also 16 inch MacBook Pro screens, I was blown away by just how a lot far better they were than the 13 inch M1 MacBooks. It’s much easier to look online as well as simply see that the 14 inch has better specs and naturally it’s a little bigger but that doesn’t truly do it justice. As well as having them alongside, it’s an extremely recognizable distinction and also one that I value even after a full year. Currently since the MacBook Pro can show a larger shade

gamut as well as it can render over a billion shades, you probably anticipate it to be excellent for a picture and also video clip editing and enhancing as well as you would certainly be appropriate yet it’s additionally a great display screen for seeing video clip and also even for general workplace kind job. You’re getting a greater resolution than the smaller MacBook so you’ll be able to see more of your spread sheet or your paper without needing to scroll. Of training course, if you desire the same top quality display at an even higher resolution, also bigger display, then you can go in advance and also get the 16 inch design. But I’ll come back to that later. The M2 MacBook Air is kind of between. Has a much better display screen than the various other 13 inch models. It can make over 1 billion shades and also it’s somewhat larger, yet it’s not a fluid XDR display screen, like the 14 and also 16 inch versions. So while it does have the very same 500 nits max illumination for SDR content, it doesn’t have the 1000 nits of sustained full screen illumination or the 1600 nits peak brightness for HDR material. Now, lots of people aren’t editing and enhancing HDR content. If you are, clearly it’s a no brainer but even if you’re just enjoying HDR web content, it’s a very significant difference and also it’s a distinction that’s gon na continue to benefit you as a growing number of HDR content is launched. Now with the 14 inch MacBook Pro, we’re additionally obtaining 120 Hertz adaptive refresh

price with Apple’s Promo. Now, personally, that’s not something that I need in a job computer system, but it does make the customer experience much better. Computer animations look more liquid and also scrolling is smoother so I’m gon na proceed and put it in my nice to have group. Now, the following point that’s essential to me with a Pro laptop are the ports. That’s the number of ports, the kinds of ports and also the area and this sort of goes hand in hand with external display screen support. I truly like that Apple brought back MagSafe so I no longer have to make use of one of the USB-C ports for billing. It’s likewise much safer when I travel and also if I’m at the flight terminal or on plane, there’s a whole lot of people moving. Now, it’s sort of funny that Apple celebrated reviving MagSafe after they took it away. I imply, I presume they can have just kept it, however anyways, I’m still pleased to have it. I know most individuals aren’t imaginative professionals but over the previous year I’ve actually appreciated not needing to keep in mind to bring an SD card viewers with me. And I understand it’s simply a tiny thing, however it just adds to a much more streamlined process for me. Likewise, having ports on both sides isn’t the biggest thing worldwide, however with the 13 inch designs, we only have ports on the left side, which is frustrating when you remain in a circumstance where it would

certainly be extra hassle-free to have the device connected on the right. Now ultimately, external display assistance is something that’s super vital to me, like my main workstation which is over there, has 7 monitors connected to it. I’m made use of to that kind of process however I believe that at the bare minimum, a Pro laptop needs to support two external displays. I have the M1 Pro and the M1 Max variations of this laptop and they both come with Thunderbolt 4 ports. With the M1 Pro, you can link up to two 6K displays and also with the M1 Max, you can connect up to three 6K display screens as well as one 4K display. Now with all these abilities, you might be questioning battery life and also that’s where actual life usage is more crucial to me than what you see in item news videos. For example, this MacBook is ranked for 17 hours but if you continue reviewing, it says of video playback which is kind of the opposite of job. At the same time for how I use this MacBook if I’m doing basic work, like surfing the internet e-mails, some picture editing and enhancing and light video editing and enhancing, I reach a complete day of job with no problems and I don’t also really obtain close to needing a cost. I have actually been super satisfied with it. Now, if I have a super heavy day of modifying as well as I’m gon na be working throughout the day, then obviously I’m gon na need to bill it throughout the day and also

that holds true for any type of laptop that I have actually ever made use of. And also talking billing, the base model of the 14 inch MacBook Pro comes with a 67W power adapter as well as you can update to a 96W adapter for 20 dollars. What I’ve been making use of instead brings me to today’s sponsor, “UGREEN” and their Nexode 140W GaN charger. It has 2 USB-C ports as well as one USB-A port. I can charge my 14 or 16 inch MacBook Pro, my iPad Pro as well as my apple iphone 14 Pro Max all at the very same time. It’s smaller than the 140W adapter that I bought with my 16 inch MacBook Pro. So it’s easier for me to load when I take a trip as well as it’s also much more functional. If I require even more power, I can simply use the power delivery 3.1 port, which outputs the full 140 watts. I can charge my 16 inch MacBook Pro from no to 56% in 30 minutes. As well as whether I charge one or several gadgets, UGREEN’s Thermal guard modern technology checks the system 800 times per second to guard my devices from overheating, which is very essential to me for maintaining battery health and wellness. So have a look at the web link in the summary to get a lot on the UGREEN Nexode 140W charger as well as thanks to UGREEN for sponsoring this section of the video clip. Currently, I do a great deal of typing on my laptop and also the keyboard as well as the track pad are super essential to me. Now this is the same key-board that you hop on a couple of various other

MacBooks and maybe my favored keyboard on any laptop. Now the track pad is absolutely my fave. It’s incredibly receptive, it’s accurate. I can push down anywhere as well as it’s larger than what you obtain with the 13 inch models. Currently, one more substantial enhancement that I’ve taken pleasure in over the past year is the audio quality. The audio speakers on the 13 inch MacBooks are great yet the ones on the 14 inch are outstanding, like a minimum of for a laptop. Aside from the 16 inch version, these are the very best speakers on any kind of laptop that I have actually made use of. Now, I do wan na aim out that this won’t matter to every customer, and also even in my instance generally, I’m using earphones so I’m gon na obtain excellent audio quality regardless. Yet if you do make use of the audio speakers on your laptop computer for things like video calls, to watch motion pictures or also to pay attention to songs, these are truly great. For laptop computer speakers, the noise is complete, it’s plenty loud, it has a good amount of presence. As well as I believe that Apple did an impressive task with the six audio speaker array. And also I know that I just discussed video clip telephone calls, so I have actually been really happy with this brand-new 1080p camera. Its higher resolution than the 13 inch M1 models and it’s much better in less

than optimum lights problems. Maintain in mind, that simply like with any type of cam, also a movie theater cam, good lighting is constantly gon na get you better video clip top quality. Now, prior to I reach why after a year of use, I assume this is a better option than the 16 inch version for a lot of users or even both M2 MacBooks, allow’s rapidly check out efficiency. However initially we need to place it in context. So Apple’s silicon chips have actually been very efficient since the M1 as well as you’ll see that for single core efficiency. The brand-new greater efficiency cores on the 2 M2 models actually outperform the M1 Pro and also the M1 Max. That’s simply standards. In my experience over the previous year, that hasn’t converted into a recognizable benefit for straightforward jobs due to the fact that the M1 Pro as well as the M1 max currently crushed those jobs. When we check out multi core performance, which is what’s more vital to me with a Pro gadget, that’s where I assume even though the M1 Pro as well as the M1 max are older chips, I’m improving efficiency just because there are extra high efficiency cores. So the M2 chip has four high effectiveness cores and also 4 high performance cores, whereas the M1 Pro just has 2 high effectiveness cores, however either 6 or 8 high performance cores. Even though each high performance core isn’t as capable as the ones on the M2 chip, the general performance is better. So for even more demanding

tasks like compiling code or for editing and enhancing images or videos or songs production, I would pick the 14 inch MacBook Pro over any one of the M1 or M2 MacBooks. We additionally see an advantage when we check out GPU efficiency where again, the M1 Pro as well as the M1 Max can outperform the more recent M2 chip since we’re obtaining a higher variety of GPU cores. It’s also vital that we think about linked memory if we’re gon na discuss exactly how responsive and also qualified your MacBook is mosting likely to be. The 14 inch MacBook Pro features 16 gigabytes as well as it can be updated to 32 gigabytes. The M2 MacBooks, also the MacBook Pro only start with 8 gigabytes of unified memory. And also here’s why that’s so essential. Like I stated at the start, today I found this MacBook for $1,586, which’s restored on Amazon.com. And also if you desire a licensed reconditioned one from Apple you can get it for 1799. Currently, incidentally, if you live beyond the US, let me understand if these sorts of deals are available to you due to the fact that I do not understand that you can get reconditioned models everywhere. And also let’s quickly contrast the 14 inch MacBook

Pro to the various other designs that you could be taking into consideration. The 13 inch M2 MacBook Pro pretty much only got a chip upgrade and also the 14 inch MacBook Pro has a better and also bigger display screen, better multi core performance, much better GPU efficiency, better speakers, a better camera system. It has MagSafe, much more ports, more effective ports and also better external display screen support. Now, the only real benefits that I would give the M2 MacBook Pro is better battery life as well as on a small edge, when it comes to mobility. However it begins at $1,300. As well as if you actually require a Pro device, after that you’re possibly updating to 512 gigabytes of inner storage and 16 gigabytes of RAM whereupon you’re already at $1,700, which is greater than the renewed design from Amazon and closer to the reconditioned cost from Apple. From my viewpoint, that’s also as well close in the $2,000 which is the market price of the 14 inch base MacBook Pro. And also the reason for that is that these laptops are so effective that they need to last you at the very least 5 to seven years as well as the benefits that you’re obtaining are super worth it when you split that $300 difference over the life of the tool. Currently, when we

compare the 14 inch MacBook Pro to the M2 MacBook Air, we’re still obtaining all the exact same benefits that I pointed out. Now, if you do not require a Pro device, then the M2 MacBook Air is a wonderful laptop computer as well as I even assume that you ought to consider the M1 MacBook Air, which is an extraordinary value at 899 and I made a video clip concerning it right here. Now, the 16 inch MacBook Pro is a fascinating choice due to the fact that it has all the very same specs as the 14 inch model, has much better battery life and also a bigger display. However it’s additionally $500 even more, and you can utilize that cash to upgrade the combined memory a lot more, the interior storage space, you can get devices or you can just wait. Now, in addition to that, if you take a trip a whole lot, the bigger dimension makes it much heavier and also much less portable and it’s less comfortable to use on an aircraft or in other extra stuffed environments. Having stated all that, now you need to see why I in fact made use of the 16 inch MacBook Pro even more than the 14 inch. Click on my face to subscribe. You know what I constantly say, “Acquire it nice or buy it two times.” Best of luck and also see you quickly.
