The Apple MacBook Pro 14 is available with no less than 10 versions of the M1 Pro/Max processor, including a version with 8 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores. This model is therefore the most affordable, but retains all the qualities of the MacBook Pro 14.
Apple strikes once again very hard with a MacBook Pro 14 which suffers from no defects. The only minor criticisms that will be made about it are aesthetic, in particular its notch or the color of the keyboard. In terms of performance, Apple has perfect control over its processor and knows how to guide developers so that their software takes full advantage of it. We appreciate the return of provided connectivity, but we would have liked the manufacturer to complete its approach by offering an HDMI 2.1 port and an SD UHS-III port, for that matter. And what about the autonomy offered… impressive.
- Top performance.
- Excellent mini-LED screen.
- Impressive sound reproduction from the speakers.
- Huge autonomy.
- No Face ID.
- No HDMI 2.1 port (HDMI 2.0 only).
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 ticks almost all the boxes: its impressive chassis makes no compromises, whether on performance or battery life, and the screen is very well made, with faithful colors and effective anti-reflective treatment . We simply regret the definition of the panel lower than that of the best laptops on this point.
