New Video on MacBook pro-2021 is a great experience. Today’s new video posted to YouTube offers viewers perhaps the best real-world look yet at Apple’s latest 16-inch MacBook Pro.
The eight-minute video, narrated in Vietnamese, shows the new MacBook Pro’s display notch, thinner bezels, full-size keyboard, additional ports in close-up, and thicker design, all of which are compared side by side with a 15-inch Intel MacBook Pro. It also shows the new MacBook being weighed, coming in at the expected 2.1kg.
Since Monday, the new MacBook Pro models have been available to order and will begin arriving in customers and launch in stores on Tuesday, October 26. Pricing starts at $1,999 for the 14-inch model and $2,499 for the 16-inch model.
New Video on !6-inch MacBook Pro
Apple, in October 2021, overhauled the high-end MacBook Pro, introducing an entirely new design, new chips, new capabilities, and more. As Apple says, the revamped MacBook Pro models offer up extraordinary performance and the world’s best notebook display.
The 2021 MacBook Pro models come in 14.2-inch and 16.2-inch size options, and they’re equipped with mini-LED displays, more ports, up to 64GB memory, and more powerful Apple silicon chips M1 Pro and M1 Max. In short, they are the best MacBook Pro models to date.
Apple’s new MacBook Pro models can be configured with the M1 Pro chip or the M1 Max. Both chips feature a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance and two high-efficiency cores, though a lower-end 8-core model is available for the entry-level 14-inch MacBook Pro. There’s also a 16-core Neural Engine in both chips.
The difference between the “Pro” and “Max” designation comes down to GPU performance. The M1 Pro features a 16-core GPU, while the M1 Max features a 32-core GPU, with a 24-core GPU also available as a middle-tier upgrade option. In addition, the M1 Pro supports up to 32GB unified memory, while the M1 Max supports up to 64GB of suitable memory.
According to Apple, the M1 Pro and Pro Max CPU are up to 70 percent faster than the CPU in the M1. The GPU in the M1 Pro is up to 2x more quickly than the M1, and the GPU in the M1 Max is up to 4x faster than the M1. M1 Pro and Pro Max use a system-on-a-chip architecture like the M1, and the M1 Pro supports up to 200GB/s memory bandwidth, and the M1 Pro supports up to 400GB/s memory bandwidth.
The 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models feature a Liquid Retina XDR display, a mini-LED display with up to 1000 nits sustained brightness, 1600 nits peak brightness, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. In addition, the 14-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 3024-by-1964 at 254 pixels per inch, and the 16-inch model has a resolution of 3456-by-2234 at 254 pixels per inch.
Slim and great design of MacBook Pro
The MacBook Pro has been redesigned inside and out, and in many ways, it’s an homage to older Macs both with its look and feature set. The MacBook Pro continues to use the same aluminum unibody design (and come in silver or space gray), but the overall shape of the machine is flatter and less curved at the bottom.
There are no radical changes here, and these machines are immediately recognizable as MacBook Pros. There are four feet on the bottom to add a slight lift, and the corners have a more curved look than before. Available in 14 and 16-inch sizes, the MacBook Pro features slim bezels at the top and the sides, a notch at the top for the camera, an overhauled keyboard that’s all black, a large trackpad, and additional ports at the left and right sides. There continues to be a large Force Touch trackpad, and there are two speaker grilles at the sides of the keyboard.
Compared to their prior-generation Intel counterparts, the new MacBook Pro models are heavier, and the 16-inch model is thicker. The 14-inch model measures 12.31 inches long, 8.71 inches wide, and 0.61 inches thick, and it weighs in at 3.5 pounds. So it’s more significant than the prior model in every dimension, but it is just about the same thickness. The 16-inch model measures 14.01 inches long, 9.77 inches wide, and 0.66 inches thick, so it is a tad shorter but slightly wider and thicker (the prior model was 0.64 inches thick). It weighs 4.7 pounds, 0.4 pounds heavier than the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro that it replaces.
It’s worth noting that 16-inch machines with the M1 Max chip will be just a bit heavier than machines with the M1 Pro chip because of the size of the chip.
There is a logo on the top casing of the machine, as is standard, but the “MacBook Pro” labeling that used to be below the display has been removed. Instead, it has been relocated to the bottom of the MacBook Pro.
Internally, the design of the MacBook Pro optimizes internal space and is machined around an advanced thermal system that can move 50 percent more air than the previous-generation machines, even when fan speeds are lower. Apple says that the new thermal design lets the MacBook Pro provide “phenomenal” sustained performance while remaining calm and quiet. For most everyday tasks, the fans will not turn on.

Both MacBook Pro models are equipped with a “Liquid Retina XDR (Extreme Dynamic Range) display,” which uses the same mini-LED technology introduced in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. In addition, the 16-inch MacBook Pro features a 16.2-inch display with a 3456-by-2234 native resolution at 254 pixels per inch.
The 14-inch MacBook Pro features a 14.2-inch display with a 3024-by-1964 native resolution at 254 pixels per inch. Aside from differences in size and the resulting difference in answer, the collections of the 14 and 16-inch models are identical.
Both are using mini-LED technology with 1,000 nits sustained brightness and 1,600 nits peak brightness, with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. In addition, the displays offer support for a billion colors, along with P3 Wide color for bright, true-to-life colors.
According to Apple, users can expect HDR content to come to life with more detail in shadows, brilliant highlights, deeper blacks, and more vivid colors than were previously available. This is enabled through the 10,000 mini-LEDs that are grouped into individually controlled local dimming zones.
When displaying SDR content, the display can deliver a peak brightness of 500 nits. The display’s 1,600 nits peak brightness capability is reserved for HDR content only.
True Tone, a feature designed to match the display’s white balance to the ambient lighting in the room, is supported. Apple devices have used True Tone for years, and it is designed to make viewing Mac’s screen easier on the eyes because it takes into account outside lighting and color temperature.
Notably, the new MacBook Pros support ProMotion technology for adaptive refresh rates ranging from 24Hz to 120Hz. When viewing a static webpage that doesn’t require a high refresh rate, the MacBook Pro’s display adopts the lower refresh rate to preserve battery life, but when gaming, scrolling, or doing other activities where a higher refresh rate will result in smoother content, the higher frame rates will kick in.
Bezels on both machines measure at 3.5mm for the top and sides, but a notch below the top bezel accommodates the front-facing camera. Overall, the display enclosure is less than 4mm thick.
Superfast M1 Pro and M1 Max Chip
Apple-designed two Apple silicon chips for the MacBook Pro models, the M1 Pro and the M1 Max are more powerful versions of the M1 chip that Apple introduced in 2020. Built on 5-nanometer architecture, the M1 Pro has 33.7 billion transistors, and the M1 Max has 57 billion.
The M1 Pro and the M1 Max feature a 10-core CPU that includes eight high-power cores and two high-efficiency cores, though it’s worth noting that the base 14-inch MacBook Pro has an 8-core version of the M1 Pro chip. All other models use the 10-core CPUs.
CPU performance is the same between the two chips, but one is the “Pro” and the “Max” because there are differences in graphics performance. The M1 Pro chip features a 16-core GPU (14-cores in the base model), while the M1 Max features a 32-core GPU with a lower-tier 24-core option also available as an upgrade for the middle-tier 14 and 16-inch machines.
The M1 chip has an 8-core CPU and an 8-core GPU, so there are improvements in CPU performance and incredible leaps in graphics performance to handle pro workloads.
The CPU in the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips is 70 percent faster than CPU performance from the M1, which was already screaming fast and outperforming many PCs with competing processors. As for GPU performance, the M1 Pro is up to 2x more quickly than the M1, and the M1 Max is up to 4x faster than the M1.
According to Apple, the M1 Pro delivers 1.7x more CPU performance than the latest 8-core PC laptop chip while using 70 percent less power, and the GPU is up to 7x faster than the integrated graphics on the same PC. GPU performance is on par with a powerful discrete GPU in a PC, but the M1 Pro uses 70 percent less power.
As for the M1 Max, it is the largest chip that Apple has built to date. Apple says the chip’s GPU offers performance comparable to a high-end GPU in a compact pro PC laptop while consuming up to 40 percent less power. Likewise, performance is similar to the highest-end GPU in the largest PC laptops, using up to 100 watts less power.
According to Apple, the M1 Pro and M1 Max can deliver the same level of performance, whether plugged in or using the battery, thanks to the efficiency of the chips. The M1 Pro and Max chips generate less heat than standard Intel chips, allowing the new MacBook Pro models to run quietly and less often.
The Bottom Line
Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 is a macOS laptop with a 16.20-inch display resolution of 3546×2234 pixels. An Apple M1 Pro processor powers it, and it comes with 16GB of RAM. The Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 packs 512GB of SSD storage.
