Review

MacBook Pro M1


 I've been using the MacBook pro M1 over the past month and I've been using it most of the time as my full-time editing computer.

The first thing is its overall design, of course, is very familiar you have a headphone port on the right-hand side but we're lacking two additional ports apparently this will be in later models but that's probably my biggest complaint about this MacBook at this point is I could use some more ports we only have two on the left-hand side so you have two but you can expand them with a dock.

Additional things like that, of course, you have this nice 13-inch form factor and thankfully apple kept the scissor keyboard that they brought back that everyone likes so it's got good key travel good feedback it's fairly quiet.

You have that nice large trackpad and a pretty nice display as well. It might be a little bit small for me but for most people that like this size laptop it's going to be great it's nice and vibrant it goes up nice and bright and it seems to work well there are brighter displays out there and the bezels may be a little bit thick for some people but for me, it doesn't really bother me.

Now the overall price of this I think is a good value for what you get compared to other macs and I'll talk about that in a moment as far as speed so this particular mac is the top of the line 16 gigabyte of ram with two terabytes of storage so it's the most expensive one you can get about twenty-three hundred dollars or so depending on how you spec it out now you don't necessarily need that extra two terabytes of storage unless you're editing video then I would suggest getting as much as you can get but for me, it's sort of necessary with editing video you could use an external drive.

 I edit all my video on this and it's just super fast in fact just using it regularly feels much faster than an intel mac for some reason so if you're just opening different applications going through the responsiveness overall is just crazy fast all the time.

Gaming

Not everyone's going to be editing video of course but things that are built in such as documents or pages or word that's going to be super fast no issues there but when you're playing games you might be surprised that it actually runs pretty smoothly. The impressive thing is this is using rosetta 2   to actually play this so to play this it actually has to convert from i-86 type footage to this m1 mac footage seamlessly and it does that when it installs it sort of puts all the libraries necessary to convert it and it's surprising that this will play it without a problem. This is not really something I would necessarily recommend to buy to play a game but it is nice and smooth for the most part and very playable and this is being translated through rosetta 2 so that you can actually play it that's the impressive thing about it and this is probably the only time I've actually seen the mac get warm so yes you're not going to have blazing fast frame rates you've got 60-hertz displays anyway but it's definitely playable for most games if they're supported on mac and you can just translate those through rosetta which is very impressive.

Microphone

It got great microphones. The microphone's quite good on here, it has studio mics as well. The audio from it is quite impressive when you're just using it to record audio maybe you need to voice something over it will work great for that but the camera is probably the lowest possible quality camera you could put in this laptop I think for what it is it should be a better camera and I think we'll see that in the future but they do use the neural engine on the new chipset in here to help out with that so it's better than before but it still needs an upgrade as well.

Battery

The last thing is battery life is amazing on this MacBook pro. Apple says you'll get 20 hours of video playback this easily lasts me two days I don't know about 20 hours for what I'm doing but at least six it's just incredible how long this battery lasts so yes you're going to get through a couple days if you go to work and you're working an eight-hour day even a 10-hour day you're going to get at least a day and a half of use out of it or two days depending on how often you're using it if you leave it on and you're not at full brightness all day long it will work just fine so it's amazing how long the battery lasts it's not a bigger battery it's just got the M1 chipset which is more similar to what we have in the iPhone so it just lasts a lot longer.

In my opinion a portable MacBook Pro M1 so this does all the tasks I need of the mac pro it's quiet it's only ever spun up the fans twice once playing that game once exporting video and only when it's connected to that external display does it spin up the fan otherwise it doesn't when you're exporting video so it's incredibly quiet it works great it has amazing battery life and I highly recommend it.
