  2. Your video sealed the deal. I make video content but I started just two months ago and don't really need pro max.
    I was editing on mac book air from 2015 with 4 GB ram and needed an upgrade badly.
    Just bought basic macbook 14 with 1TB.
    Delivery on 13th Dec

  3. Awesome comparison and very helpful as I was trying to make exactly this decision for my MBP14!

    Consensus emerging seems like though the M1 Max chip is certainly faster for some workflows, you’re not really sweet-spotting the 14” for thermals, noise or battery with the bigger chip. The 16” model with a bigger battery and more cooling seems better suited to the max, and I personally am not going to extract ~$1k of value from 5min faster renders.

    I will say it is awesome that Apple now actually offers the top tier CPUs in small models for people that might use them docked most of the time…

  4. This makes me wonder if it can render 4K video in Final Cut Pro while simultaneously recording video from a PS5 using OBS without any frame drops.

  5. Great channel. I LOVE how you just get right into the point without telling us to rate, comment and subscribe before every video. Subbed.

  6. Bro, thanks for this video, and this video just made me subscribed to your channel, Great job, I’m getting the M1 PRO Now👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  7. Excellent video, Terry. I liked the approach of having other apps running the background. Crushed this. We can fight about Pro vs Max later. Nothing but love on this, man!

  8. Thanks Terry! I'd already come to the same conclusion. Just good to hear some confirmation I made the right decision! Peace

  9. For video / photos – the regular Mac is great , for 3d work it's NOT yet native (Cinema 4d / blender Gpu rendering )

  10. Hey, I've just been getting into your channel in the last couple of days. I just want to say you do great work. Very to the point, relevant, and without all the BS. I hope you keep going. Cheers.

  11. Solid test bro! This is what i’ve been looking for. Real life everyday use stress test. Thank you man.

  12. I have the 14" M1 Pro 1TB/10 core/16GB and it handles my creative stuff just fine. capture one, blender (although no cycles GPU until 3.1) Illustrator, photoshop, Logic Pro. Runs sweet, even when hooked up to the 4K 32" Monitor. I was tempted to get the Max, but this is just fine and will only get better as apps mature for Arm 64.

  13. Dang, I just got mine on Monday, and I bought the 14 inch M1 Max with 32 GB of Ram. I’m starting the regret it just a little bit, because as more reviews come out, I’m finding out that the M1 Max consumes more power even at idle. And with a smaller battery than the 16 inch, I would rather have longer battery life than max power.

  14. But if you bump up your RAM to 32Gb (400$), then upgrade to a MAX will only cost $200 extra… So you are really only saving $200, and if you are planning to keep this laptop for years and try to future proof yourself, then maybe extra $200 over the years is not that big of a splurge?

  15. how about for music production, i need it for both. Im just holding off since none of the plugins are compatible yet lmao

  16. Thanks fellow sony shooter. Finally someone testing h.265 120fps. All these bums with h.264 24p really unnecessary with you in the picture

  17. Terry, how would FCPX playback be effected if the timeline was not rendered in this scenario? I noticed your timeline looked rendered (no white dashes above the clips). Thanks for sharing the real world test. This system looks amazing!

  18. Thank you T War and tell your boy CJ he brought out the wrong message. Some of these tech You Tubers saying the same thing that you do not need to get the Max. Yoi can get the 13 MacBook Pro or 14.

  19. How’s it handle heavy local adjustments and heavy spot healing in Lightroom on them large collections?

  21. You’re a great dude Terry! These are super helpful vids. I had zero FOMO regarding the MAX as it’s such a PRO machine and my needs will no require it. It’s the 16 vs 32 on the RAM that has been my sticking point. It’s wild how that’s a $400 upgrade. Then again I’m the type of guy that holds on to a Mac for 5+ years so I think it’s a smart upgrade. Thanks again for the vid and your humor as always man.

  22. I'm probably going to save up for a Pro with upgraded RAM (to 32gb since I'm currently maxing out my 32gb on my current PC) and bigger SSD (not sure what size yet but likely 2tb). Seems like 95% of us don't really need an MBP Max!

  23. 'm the type to have two Adobe apps open and Final Cut plus Chrome and Safari. LOL!
    I know I need to upgrade. I got the M1 MBP a few weeks ago and I thought the base with 8GB would be sufficient.
    My i7 16gb 2019 16 inch still can handle my daily workload better than the M1 MBP 13.
    I am thinking I should just get the 14" binned machine with at least 16gb of memory to save money but get more power.

  24. Do you think opting for the Max helps to future proof the laptop?
    It’s pricey tho 🤑

The US judge rejected Apple’s request, calling it “selective reading”! App Store will open as soon as December
