  1. Nah the air is by far better. It also has more color support mbp. MBA is by far better. It just needs a fan and a Touch Bar.

  2. Owner of the late 2016 MBP base and it’s still rocking it after 6 years. I’m amazed that when I first bought it, it was $1,499 and now it’s commanding just $1,299 with an M1 processor and has touchbar. However the new MBA M2 for $1,200 is such a bargain. Currently debating on the MBA M2, or 14 MBP M1, or wait for the 14 MBP M2. I’m ready to upgrade…

  3. But if they don’t bring a new Mac Mini, then I’ll go for the M1 one…. Just need it for editing

  4. This is an interesting take on what’s coming up from apple…. Let’s see how this works…

  5. I really wonder how good zbrush, right blender and other 3D stuff runs on the M2 compared to M1 Pro. Not the actual rendering stuff, but the pure modelling stuff 😅

  6. Naa, the M2 Macbook pro 13 is SHIT. Not worth it. Just buy the Air or wait for the next generation.

  7. same chipset, no front hair, a fan in case of heat, and Touch Bar for who likes it, with 100 dollars more expensive, that's quite acceptable for me!

  8. The 24gb memory is just apples way of charging you more for less. It’s the same price jump as 16gb – 32gb in other models. They’re giving you less whilst still charging you the same. It makes the memory upgrade even more overpriced than it usually is.
    You can buy 64gb of PC laptop memory for what apple charges to go from 16gb to 24gb.

  9. Hey Gary! Love the new DJI mics. Is the audio we're listening to coming from them or an external mic?

  10. Actually the M2 macbook pro comes with 2 thunderbolt four not thunderbolt three.

  11. I hate the new charing port. It's the time to adopt type c only. Why do we need the useless charging ports?? That's the reason I am considering the 13 inch macbook pro.

  12. No offense but your audio is so muffled I have a hard time understanding you sometimes.

  13. the only thing I wish they upgraded in the MacBook Pro 13, is the webcam, magsafe and reduce the bezels like those in the 2019 16 inch. But

  14. weirdly my 2013 iMac had 24 GB of RAM, I don't know how many channels the MBA/MBP have, but mine had 4 slots which had 2 x 4GB RAM and 2 x 8 GB RAM, I can't remember which of those was the stock RAM

  15. Apple is such a weird company. They always seem to make something to fail with just in case. Reminds me of the iPhone mini all over again.

  16. A 3rd reason for recommending the 13" Pro over the Air is if you really hate the notch.

  17. I always like your real-world recommendations for "everyday" users. They're the most sensible I find on a tech channel.

  18. Agree, the best bang for the buck is the M1 Macbook Air. The increase in price is not justified.

  19. 5:00 does thunderbolt 4 allow for more displays? As I understand it, its the m1 pro chip and m1 max chips that allow more displays. Because why would the max and pro macs have a different number of displays supported if thunderbolt 4 was the defining thing but both have tb4. Also intel macs supported multiple displays using tb3 speeds. So this nitpick kinda has no merit. I agree i want higher display support but nitpicking on tb3 vs 4 isnt doesnt built a case

  20. Apple is trying to get rid of excess inventory of existing 13" MBP chassis and parts. Think iPhone SEs of old. If they always come out with new body and components every time they ship out a new MBP, they'd have a lot more old inventory and they'd be forced to throw away these parts that is not used, thereby wasting money.

  21. one thing I kinda appreciate about the new m2 MBP is that it keeps the old school MacBook design while including upgraded hardware. i never liked the new MBP design with the chonky body and all black keyboard

  22. If you talk about uneven storage/ram…
    WHat about my 16" M1 Pro base model? I have not 4x 128GB chips with the 512GB model…. i have 5x 128GB in them…. i would still love a proper explanation. I personally think its because of a dedicated ramdisk space or to slow down degradation of the SSD (would make sense since the SSD is SOLDERED/unrepairable on the PCB)

  23. I had 24 GB in a Mac Pro for years so this is a natural number for me. I went from 3 to 6 immediately to avoid the Apple tax, then later 12, 24 and ended at 48. I appreciate your practical perspective in the dozens of videos I've watched over the past few months. And as others have mentioned, that mic is missing the highs so not as good unless it can be positioned differently to be better somehow.

  24. 3:20: I guess if you live in a hot climate then I understand if you have the Macbook pro

    Oh so that’s why the MacBook pro is best selling in Australia

  25. I definitely need a fan. Fans come in handy when the memory keeps trying to reallocate memory between the ram and the storage. I havnt found that apple silicon uses any less ram than intel. I had a MacBook Air consistently at 212 degrees F plus. (That’s intel temps in the red) seems to go hand in hand with memory. My 16gb 16” MacBook Pro runs at a pretty consistent 15.5Gb of ram but the temps are always below 150F. Neither of them seemed affected by performance slowdown, so I think the fan makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I can definitely understand why the 13” MBP exists.

  26. My heart: MacBook Pro M2 13"
    My soul: iPad Pro M1 11"

    My wallet: iPad 10.2 (4th generation)

  27. I for one welcome the upgrade to this machine. The MBP 13 is my favourite of the bunch for it's chassis design and touch bar. I'm really glad it's still available. Hope it never goes away lol.

  28. The old design being kept with the 13inch pro with the chip is still nice because it really doesn't need that redesign. It would be something that I would totally buy if It had an option without the Touch Bar

  29. The ram can be 12•2= 24 2 ram chips of 12… but anyways this is the best MacBook Pro in my opinion for someone that doesn’t need all the gpu starting price at 1299??? Maxed out 24gb ram and 1tb of storage it’s the same price of a base model 14 MacBook Pro.

  30. Rubbish upgrade. No 120 hz, only 500 nits of brightness, much expensive, no micro sd slot and slow charge. Not worth to change it from m1.

  31. The MacBook Pro 13 goal is to make the MacBook Air appear to be a good deal and convince those potential customers…

  32. I have an old cheap computer with 2 monitors and I want to get rid of it and use a hub and use a MacBook for it, but I don’t want to buy and install a new wall mount so I’m gonna replace one monitor with a laptop mount

  33. Will the macbookpro come with 16 inches? and they are leaking, weren't there vibrant colors in the photos? Such a keyboard was white or something. What were they then? Can someone please answer?

  34. All of the tech YouTubers forget that there are heaps of us out there that love the Touch Bar and I’m one of ‘em. Have my M1 13” MBP and it’s a solid machine.

  35. I guess Apple is still selling the 13” MacBook Pro knowing that they will be out of stock on the other MacBook models and desperate buyers will settle for this one.

  36. I’m not sure where you are seeing that these computers have thunderbolt 3.
    Under the spec sheet on all the current models, and even the m1 models all say “two thunderbolt/USB 4 ports”. Doesn’t that mean they are thunderbolt 4 and usb 4?

  37. A few years ago, some lenovo laptops came with 4gb or 8gb of ram soldered to the board, with an empty slot to put up to a 16gb stick in, so the total was either 20gb or 24gb.
    The first gen. desktop i7s has trippel channel memory, so they also had often configs with 12gb or 24gb.
    What i’m saying is that there have been pc’s with that kind of memory configuration before. I would still have preferred 32gb though, 24gb feels weird. And it’s probably dual channel.

  38. Air M2 has a 10bit panel and M2 Pro 13 has a worse panel. I think Air M2 is closer to M1 Pro 14 than M2 Pro 13 is . If you are more than a simple user and need 16gb of RAM it is better to buy a M2 Air 16/256 or a Pro 14" 16/512. The price of Pro 13 M2 with 16Gb of RAM i guess it will be too close to Pro 14" .
