The MacBook Pro with M1 delivers a killer combo of blazing performance and epic battery life, even if the design is too familiar.
The MacBook Pro with M1 is a laptop with a unbeatable combo of power and endurance, making it one of the best laptops you can buy right now. And I know this because I’ve been using this system for months to plow through my workload, and I can barely get this machine to stutter no matter what I throw at it.
Thanks to the M1 chip, the Apple Silicon inside this 3-pound beast runs circles around most Windows laptops when it comes to sheer performance. Just as important, the new MacBook Pro M1 outlasts the competition on battery life — by a lot. We’re talking more than 16 hours of endurance. In fact, it’s so good it won the award for longest-lasting laptop in our Tom’s Guide Awards 2021. My only complaint is that Apple hasn’t touched the design.
