M1 Pro MacBook Pro 16″ Base Model after 150 hours of use ? Keep in mind this is a great laptop but not for the average consumer, web/app developer or even level entry digital creator. It’s great buying this for stuff like 3d rendering, heavy video editing with adobe products or music production. Other than that, for most productivity work I recommend checking out the 14″ or even sticking with the 13″ M1 MacBook Pro.

  1. are you usingg the 16gb ram 16 gnu cores version?
    they say that the difference between the 32gb and 32gpu is a lot more than it seems.
    so im afraid of getting my 16gb, because they say its much laggy than the others

  2. OMFG This is the one person I know that uses MX keys mini. i use MX keys for mac and anywhere 3 for mac tho

  3. So I decided to go with the greatest no brainer configuration 16.5" M1 Pro base model for an extra 200$ over the 14" M1 pro base model. Mainly because you get a bigger XDR display and it has more battery life then the MacBook air! Plus I get two extra CPU cores & two extra GPU cores which is a bonus for me. In addition I also upgraded the SSD to 1TB for future proofing.Β  If you have any spare time and would like to check out my M1 pro unboxing with a beginners perspective since I only shot it with my iPhone πŸ“ΉπŸ˜Thank you in advance and I hope you have a great day.

  4. What a fantastic last line "if the power in this laptop means that it can pay itself off get it, if not it means you don't need it" wow do I appreciate that last line… I want the 14" pro but do I need it? Not according to you. I shoot with a high mega pixel camera and use Denoise Ai which kills my current (i5 8gig ram) asus laptop. I ordered a Samsung Pro 360 15" 1 TB drive with 16 gigs of ram instead. I am thinking I may jump in for the Macbook Air M2 when it comes out or for $850 the current M1 MBA base model, just to test the waters. I would appreciate your input.

  5. Are the 16GB of RAM enough or did you ever feel like you should have gotten 32? Great Video! πŸ™‚

  6. I’m pretty sure everyone who bought a M1 MacBook Pro did so just to edit a M1 MacBook Pro review on it.

  7. I'am in the market for a new laptop. I am mainly looking for best performance for the money, but I do love my apple products. I see that many of these gaming laoptops come with ryzen 9 cpus and rtx 3060 graphics for under $2,000. Would you prefer this new macbook over these other gaming laptops?

  8. No se si hablas espaΓ±ol pero, en pocas palabras no tuviste problemas con los juegos y programas pesados?

  9. I’m nervous to buy again for concerns of reliability. My 2019 16” MBP w/ 32gb ram suddenly turned into a nightmare after a year of stable use in sound design. Now it’s back in for repairs and needs its third logic board in three months leaving me unable to continue working. After all these incurred costs, I’m definitely experiencing buyers remorse. Hopefully, this generation with the new chips last longer than the Intel Touch Bar MBP’s.

  10. Cracks me up that video editors are telling people to not buy it and that they don’t need it if they don’t edit high res footage. What I want to buy it cause it’s shiny snd I have the money lol.

  11. You have never criticize any product. You're just sugar coating these products to get review units.

    I only watch your video because of your cinematic shots.

  12. Fun fact, the battery in the new 16” is actually a tiny bit smaller than the previous generation. The apple silicone is just way more efficient.

  13. Love the video. Just wondering have you had any issues with the speakers? Mine make these weird crackling and popping noise when playing audio, haven’t even had it 2 weeks. ☹️

  14. Ah yes, my daily dose of watching review of something I can't afford.

    Edit: awesome video as always man.

  15. Wait, all of this hype and it’s still not even OK for gaming? If the GPU sucks why would I get this for video editing

  16. Do you have the intermittent charging problem when you shut down your Mac and lower the lid? If I turn it off and close the lid and then connect the charger, the charge is wrong. Check what I tell you because there are many people who are not aware of the failure.

  17. Looking forward to your 14 inch for developers video. I’m in need of a laptop replacement soon and the M1 with 16gb of memory is a really strong value proposition but all of the other updates make me want to stretch for a β€œbudget” 14”. The custom pc is already built lol.

  18. This machine is ultimate ❀️πŸ”₯ and the video is too great man…keep it up πŸ‘πŸ‘

  19. Pretty much in love with your editing skills. Hats OFF!!!πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œβ€β€
