Apple MacBook Pro 14: M1 Pro chip, 32 GB of RAM

For example, the most modern M1 Pro chip is combined with a traditional mechanical keyboard, and the Liquid Retina XDR display is combined with a rich set of interfaces, including MagSafe 3. As a result, the device has absorbed all the best from the past and the present.

The M1 Pro chip installed in the  Apple MacBook Pro 14 is equipped with 8 cores (6 high-performance and 2 energy-saving) in the central processor and 14 in the graphics. Plus, it has a 16-core Neural Engine machine learning system, and separate media processors for decoding files with support for H.264, HEVC and ProRes. 32 GB of LPDDR4X RAM is provided, which will be enough for any conceivable tasks.

Apple’s ultrabook uses an SSD drive with reading speeds of up to 7.4 GB/s, double that of previous models. This makes working with large 8K videos and RAW photos faster. The capacity of the SSD is 512 GB.

The Apple MacBook Pro 14 sports a 120Hz Liquid Retina XDR display. This is a 14.2-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 3024 x 1964. A notch familiar from iPhones has appeared: it does not interfere with work at all, since in most applications it is masked by the status bar. But with its help, it was possible to increase the usable display area, which is used to display system information.

The 70 Wh battery provides up to 17 hours of movie playback from the Apple TV app. The laptop comes with a 96W power supply that takes two hours to fully charge.

Engineers managed to fit six speakers in a thin case. Four low-frequency drivers with resonance suppression extend the sound range. They reproduce up to 80% more low frequencies than before. At the same time, the tweeters reproduce the vocal parts more accurately.

Not so long ago, Apple laptops were scolded for abandoning popular interfaces. With this, the MacBook Pro 14 is doing well: there is MagSafe 3, as many as three Thunderbolt 4, made in USB-C format, an SD card slot, HDMI and a headphone output.

An interesting detail: the size of all keys and the keyboard layout of the MacBook Pro 14 are completely identical to the older 16-inch model. That is, typing on it is just as convenient. The laptop comes with the official Russian layout, so engraving and stickers are not required.

Eventually

The Apple MacBook Pro 14 is a great work tool for those who work in the macOS environment. A productive and economical chip, a huge supply of RAM and a fast drive will make your work even more enjoyable and fruitful.
