Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch, 16-inch: Price, Specs, Availability in the Philippines

The most powerful MacBook Pros to date

After many leaks and rumors, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple introduces its new MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models. It got a refreshed design with thinner screen bezels, full-height function keys on the keyboard that replaces the TouchBar, new ports aside from USB-C, and the return of MagSafe to MacBook.

The two new laptops made and designed for professionals possess the new and more powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max Apple Silicon SoCs, the successor to the Apple M1 chip. Apple promises that these machines will perform at their best even on battery power and boasts long battery life as well. Upfront, both laptops now feature a Mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion and a 1080p FaceTime camera, the first-ever on a Mac notebook.
