    If you’re gonna do more gaming for the full review, please mention whether the game is running via Rosetta or metal. Rosetta is going to have an inherent performance hit, so I think it’s a useful frame of reference to have.

    • EmissaryGW2

      @Joel Bierman its not entirely strange. If you successfully influence others to align with what you like/dislike, it's more likely to affect that company's bottom line and cause them to course correct in a favorable direction. I believe it's also been shown that simply being blasted with certain viewpoints regularly will influence your opinion. So it isn't entirely pointless to go on internet crusades.

      The good thing about this is maybe other manufacturers will start making similar chips. but google: "Apple see's software as an inconvenience and backward compatibility as a profit eater." & "Apple Defends Killing OpenGL, OpenCL support" which effectively killed a ton of apps ... just one example of why there is so much dislike.

    • Jamzam

      With these latest offerings I feel like apple fans are excited but oddly more humble, and “apple haters” are pleasantly surprised/impressed for the first time so it all kinda balances out

    this is basically the first Apply product that I am in love with other than the LiDAR sensor and Face Recognition Tech. (Don't like iPhones, just these 2 tech in them). Literally first time Apple made me so much excited for a product like AMD or NVIDIA does. Ports are also back and MagSafe too. Nice Job, actually revolutionary. Hope in 4th,5th Gen Apple Silicons have GPU so good that not just video/sound editing, but 3d rendering would be a child's play.

  • Gary

    Man this is one of the best break downs of the features I’ve seen so far and it’s not even the full review. I was in the market for a new high powered system that is capable of some light gaming outside of my gaming rig and this just confirms that this will be able to handle all that I throw at it with all the ports I need plus the so awesome welcome back of MagSafe and the sd card slot! 🙏 and I have to agree the hdmi port for me is a meh addition I would of welcomed like you said a usb type a for more options but hey I’ll still take it!

  • mahadevovnl

    I'd imagine Apple will update OSX to make the notch not take a bite out of the UI. It should be blocking just like the edges of the screen are blocking.

  • Lucas Foster
    Lucas Foster

    When it comes to the notch thing, I think it's pretty dumb overall but I do think it's better than the iPhone one. It should have had FaceID but what they've done here is extend the display up a little bit on either side of a notch - so you actually GAIN screen real estate by pushing the menu bar up, even if cutting chunks out of displays is kind of a clunky solution to shrinking bezels. The Iphone, however, has the notching cutting INTO the rest of the screen with the status bar being stretched to take up the space. Other phones have the display right to the edge, so it's much more of a negative impact than this (although more useful). Also, I'm pretty sure Apple has the system treat the display as though there is no notch for similar reasons Windows ignores the rounded corners - first, it means they don't need to do any software work and, particularly, there's no risk of needed multiple versions for displays with/without a notch (avoiding it would look super weird if your MacBook doesn't have one). Second, I feel like compatibility could be a factor, I don't know for sure but I suspect some apps wouldn't adapt to rounded corners or the notch properly - either they'd leave a gap across that whole top piece, shrink themselves to fit into the smaller rectangle of the rounded screen or maybe send important elements off the useable space - and again could mean needing extra code to handle the changing screens. It's dumb, but I can't really see a better implementation. But it NEEDS FaceID to justify its existence

      @KLEPTOROTH Wow, that's terrible if you're working alone like that with that much stuff going on. It's seems you have a case of being understaffed. Also, what are you using MacOS for? Usually most things can be run on Windows and/or Linux. There are only a couple of occasions that I can think of where MacOS is required. By users do you mean employees or customers? I'd ask your boss and/or HR that you need help. If they say you need to do it alone then that's not a fair workplace and you might be overworked, so I'd report that. Of course, all at your discretion though, I know what you've told me. Once again, best of luck!


      @Happiness is key the other thing that doesn't help is that I'm running every part of the business's IT infrastructure, ALONE. we have over 100 users, 200 computers, 40 servers... Etc. So anything that makes my life more difficult than it needs to be will incur my wrath. 🤣. Additionally, unlike just being biased just because, I have verifiable and provable reasons for such.

    There’s actually apps that already exist that hide the notch throughout the entire machine not just when apps are open if you so desire, and I’m assuming they decided to throw it on there not just because it’s an easily identifiable machine now if someone only saw the screen at a coffee shop for instance, but I’m assuming they also are putting it there cause they intend to put Face ID into the MacBook pro’s which would make sense since it’s the Pro line of their MacBooks, and they probably were like “well they may as well get used to the notch being there even if we aren’t ready to ship them with Face ID this year. Also another really impressive thing is MKBHD did an entire video edit with 8K red raw footage and you know how much goes into his edits and he said he never audibly heard the fans speed up at all under basically full load.. that’s insanity.. and it doesn’t get hot..

    glad they got the message, a Pro is for Pros. though i'd still like to see a single Type A, my DJ mixers all use USB A-B Cables, so.. it's either dongles or someone has to make a Type-C to Type-B cable for them! the return of actual I/O is a welcome return, and magsafe, the notch fad needs to die though - i'd rather have a shorter screen, if i had to use one of these i'd probably end up trying to find a way to just lose that section of the screen entirely, Notches/screen intrusions are not great for OCD.

    5:52 In my opinion not 16:10 but *3:2 is actually the perfect aspect ratio for work!* There are devices from Acer, Huawei, Microsoft, ... and I hope there will be more in the future! 16:10 is still better than 16:9 though. I had a 16:10 Windows PC monitor for a long time.

  • Trancera

    I'm cool with 3 thunderbolt ports since they all still double as charger ports, however, it does need a USB A port, especially since it has a full sized HDMI port, instead of the mini one. And since it has a dedicated charging port again, you don't really need that 3rd thunderbolt port.

    I used the SD card reader in my laptop this year to update maps for the onboard navigation system in my '2019 Mazda. I rarely use google maps, cause the onboard system is good enough, and it's integrated better with car's OS, HUD, etc. It's nice to have a full sized card reader in a laptop, along with some USB-A's, so I can plug in a pendrive, or other devices, without any hassle.

    • Pio Bu
      Pio Bu

      @Siana Gearz see, I don't have a USB SD card reader lying around, and I don't know anyone that does - maybe someone like a pro photographer would have a bunch of them (or someone that's been living in Apple's port-less ecosystem for years), but an average Joe probably won't. I do have some old USB 1.0 pendrive-like MicroSD reader, but that wouldn't help me with the full size SD card I needed to access recently. A 'Pro' designation, or Pro Max even, should indicate that a professional can use it out-of-the-box, and that would be hard to do with the last year's 2-thunderbolt Mbooks - you can't even plug in a normal USB-A pendrive to them, and that's a common real world use case (something I do a few times a week at work). This year's models are a definite improvement in that regard, and everyone's been raving about the reintroduction of ports in the reviews. Finally a product I can recommend.

    • Siana Gearz
      Siana Gearz

      @Pio Bu Most people will find an SD-Card reader or 3 or 5 if they just rummage in their stuff. Most USB-C hub manufacturers just chuck one into the end of the hub, that's nice as well, and not quite as easy to lose. I think having an SD-Card port on the machine is nice, but to be kept in mind that these computers specifically in this video are somewhat minituarised and slimmed down and densely packed, space actually is an issue. What ports one may wish for instead? Maybe more USB. I don't think you can combine alt modes, once a USB port is dedicated as a display output (displayport alt mode via USB-C socket), you can't have actual USB connectivity on it, can you? So if you max out the display connections on this one, you cannot connect any more peripherals, if that's the case.

    • Pio Bu
      Pio Bu

      @Siana Gearz wouldn't it be more silly if I had to buy a stupid dongle just for a single use? Then I'd probably toss it somewhere, since I'm not using it every day, lose it, and then I'd have to inevitably buy another one the next time I needed it. I got 3 USB-As, 1 USB-C, HDMI, Ethernet port, mini jack, and an SD card reader (unless I'm forgetting something) - I'm not sacrificing space for anything.

    • Siana Gearz
      Siana Gearz

      I don't think something you have used once is all that vital at all. If you're plugging things in all the time though, that's a solid usecase, and those have been mentioned here - embedded hardware devs, people with video drones and stuff. Even people who 3D print, though that's kind of a temporary thing for most i guess before putting a Pi-based wireless spooler on their printer. Like for sure more connectivity is always better, but the space is limited, so if you aren't using the port a lot, wouldn't you rather instead have a port that you do use a lot or can't replace with a simple USB device?

      @HeyItsHades The argument of "lmao just buy a PC" isn't even remotely ok, as funny as it is. People want to be able to enjoy the same games as everyone else on the hardware that *they* own. I'm sure 99% of people don't have the money to just go buy a gaming rig to play something like LOSP2 or Tomb Raider; they're gonna install Steam, buy the game, and then be pissed when it runs like dogshit. The solution isn't just to tell people to "go get a PC", it's to create the resources necessary to let *everyone* game on their computer/laptop. As for the demand issue, Apple has the money. They don't need to be shown that there's a market for gaming on Apple hardware when they have practically unlimited funding and can do whatever they please, realistically. No hate! Sorry if this sounded rude as hell, didn't mean for it to come off like that :) (Oh, and as for the professionals vs. gamers argument: IMO, it shouldn't really matter. Having hardware that's powerful in ANY situation isn't a detriment, and the issues we're talking about here are mostly software sided, which *shouldn't* be an issue, but Apple is being very stubborn.)

    FYI, y'all messed the units up at 1:40. A Watt-hour is labeled as Wh, not W/h. Watts per hour would signify an acceleration in energy usage. Watt-hours is a unit of energy. In this case, how much energy can be stored in the battery. So, a 100Wh battery can put off 100W over 1 hour or it can put off 20W over 5 hours.

Intel and AMD are going to lose 90% of their consumers if apple drops more budget friendly lineups around 600- 900 dollar ballpark with the M2 chips. The only people left using PC will be gamers.

      Do you want to give me le kiss?

      I don't believe that's going to happen. Ultimately, the number of people that spend 3k on a notebook is just kinda limited - so the market for games that make use of specific apple silicon features is limited. which means, it is a better bet for gaming companies to have a game for some other platform and the port it to macos.

      @arahman56 I'm fairly certain the Switch is also an SoC, as well as being ARM.

    • arahman56

      PS5 hardware is a SOC too. The unique part of the M1 is that its an ARM SOC.

    The 14inch has quite a performance penalty even with the M1 Pro. You can get about 15 to 20 percent better performance using the 16inch..

    Thanks Linus! You're literally the only tech influencer saying the unspeakable truth: USB-A is not going back in time, but a market standard that should be on any computer for decades to come. I'm saying this under every Macbook video.

    • Lily

      @Adree Das The difference between micro-usb and full sized usb-a isn't really comparable to this argument. I half agree; on one hand, usb-c can crank out some serious charging power, but on the other, usb-a and usb-c are capable of the same data transfer rates, provided you're on the same version of usb (say, 3.2). The only difference is power delivery, and both type-a and type-c have micro-usb completely beaten in all regards.

    • Adree Das
      Adree Das

      Do you say the same thing about micro usb on phones? If there is a superior alternative available, why shouldn’t peripheral manufacturers move to that instead of oems having to include legacy ports. Please let me know where I’m wrong

  • Langam

    Funny how Apple *suddenly* deems SD cards and HDMI ports beneficial for professionals again. Just a generation ago, a professional, buying a macbook *PRO* , would have to use a dongle, cause Apple was "courageous" enough to remove almost everything useful. Also, while some cameras don't use SD anymore, it's still the most widely used camera media out there. Not everyone has a 8K cam that can only directly capture to an SSD.

    Good review. I disagree on touch ID tho, I much prefer it on my laptop to face ID. Better than either tho IMHO is AppleWatch integration for login.

  • Redline

    So when are we gonna get these kinda amazing displays standalone for PC? All the currently existing FALD monitors are overpriced, always awful in some different but important way and have a fan which is absolutely unacceptable, while this device proves we can clearly overcome all those issues, but just, don't 🤔

    • Mark Jacobs
      Mark Jacobs

      This display isn't actually great in terms of responsiveness. Pixel response times are very disappointing after hardware unboxed took it through their testing. 30ms response times at 120fps "Pro motion (VRR)" setting is not a great result at that refresh rate. It's very nice for its colour accuracy (Partly because colour management is miles better in MacOS) & Contrast ratio (but FALD is always on, so a bit of blooming is visible even in SDR).

    • kendokaaa

      FALD on larger monitors is a lot more expensive to make, and to achieve 1000 nits fancy monitors are targeting, you need to cool those LEDs hence the fan. Yields also tend to get worse as displays get larger. Then there's economies of scale, where these less mainstream monitors get sold in small volumes and Apple sells millions so monitors cost more to manufacture. This device hasn't overcome anything, Apple made smaller FALD displays that require solving fewer problems

    • Redline

      @Liam Not this one, but a whole lot of high end gaming ones do, and they're always tiny, cheap, whiny blowers that can't be replaced with something like a Noctua

    Apple Silicon is ushering in an era where the regular, base 13" MacBook is not just the one that you buy when you can't afford the pro machine. It is the one you buy when you don't need the pro machine.

      The 13" is becoming the new 'Air'. I expect both will disappear over the next few years and we'll see a 12" come back as a compromise between the two. Then they have a sensible line up of 12", 14" and 16" laptops. 12" M1 and 14/16" M1pro and M1max will be a thing.

  • Osiniks

  • Nathan

    I was thinking good for them when they showed the performance in the game, honestly was better than i expected even though it might be a meme game? But then I looked at the price and lol'd. It should perform WAY better for being a 3.5k laptop. And also the longest segment of the video appears to be about the notch....

    • Diogo Marques
      Diogo Marques

      Yes... but it's also not the point of these machines? It's true that those 3.5K on a PC gaming laptop will buy you better gaming performance no doubt, but virtually everything else from display to build quality, trackpad, battery life, speakers, etc. will be way worse. These are very expensive but I wouldn't call them overpriced. In fact, a lot of dev teams and other pro/enterprise users are finding these pay for themselves after a few months just based on the performance gains.

      @K J AMD and Intel don't care. They compete with each other, not Apple. Their processors will never be in a Mac and an M1 will never be in a computer in their market. It's the same reason why Qualcomm never cared about Apple's iPhone SoCsbut are now gearing up to make bigger leaps because Samsung and other Android manufacturers are planning to make their own SoCs. We keep trying to force these rivalries and competition that don't exist.

    • catboy

      @Tams80 Dude the M1 Max is 56% faster than a 3080 paired with an i9-11950k (Razer Blade 15 Advanced) on battery in an optimized app… that’s impressive. If games were optimized for the M1 Max, it’d be the best all around laptop on the market hands down.

    Apple does a lot wrong but they nailed it with the M1 max laptops.

  • notlekrut

    One thing to note, the screen actually isn't exactly 16:10. It is 16:10 PLUS the menu bar with the notch. So when you go into fullscreen, the menu bar goes black and you get a full 16:10. Effectively, you get slightly more vertical screen space than before even with the notch

    Two things you think detract. First, lack of a touch display - do you really want greasy fingerprint smudges on the shiny HDR screen? Second, lack of FaceId - FaceId alone, without a second form of acknowledgment, would be a security risk for automatically entering password or credit card numbers. If you are using the laptop keyboard, how hard is it to touch the TouchId sensor? If you are docking the MBP, just go and buy the magic keyboard with TouchId. You know that Apple needs the money. .

    • ww ww

      @UtterlyRandom you are right, apple laptops need to have a touchscreen and an oled display along with better game support like several cheaper windows laptops, that way you could take notes, watch movies and play games in addition to whatever you already do on Macs. They could probably do so with better power efficiency and reliability than the windows competition. I hate having to buy a tablet or PS5 when one laptop should be enough.

    • UtterlyRandom

      Giving people the option of a touch display isn't something any non-delusional person would be against. Cameras can easily be cut off, as many other manufacturers show and as Windows Hello shows, its perfectly safe as well. Windows Hello is miles ahead, because its also a 3D scan of your face ans clearly doesn't need the same amount of space. This comment is an insane amount of coping of a delusional fanboy

    11:11 If you convert that to a type A you lose the flexibility of being able to charge on the opposite side of the laptop... and I'd rather keep that flexibility.

    They could make the notch a button, with an animation around the notch when the cursor goes behind it.

    I think you are able to move the curser behind the notch so that you don't bumb into it (have have to move around it) if you move the curser slong the top of the screen. I think that's a good thing

    "I wouldn't try gaming on a trackpad." I actually beat Borderlands on a trackpad cuz I used to play it in the back of the class, but a mouse would have made it obvious.

Any other shooter I can play fine with a mouse, but something in my brain breaks when I try to play Borderlands with a mouse now.

    It does perform close to 3080 when runnimg native games with Metal, the power is there, its just contraimed by lack of support at the moment.

    • Mark Jacobs
      Mark Jacobs

      Not really though. You'd just not really be using that 3080 to its maximum capability (4k & raytracing, utilising DLSS). If you think such things are "cheating", you should also "turn off" hardware acceleration for the M1 GPU cores (the optimisations are build into the hardware so you can't actually turn them off, but not supporting that kind of hardware is the equivalent of that). It actually causes that GPU to drop below a RTX 2060 mobile operating @ 80W. That's the truth about what is going on & what makes the M1 efficient, it's doing certain things smarter, not actually "going faster" (and that is a valid approach to things).
