The new MacBook Pro 14-inch and MacBook Pro 16-inch laptops are all we could have hoped for. Packing the powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, Apple’s latest notebooks feature new Liquid Retina XDR displays, MagSafe charging, thinner bezels, and (finally) ditch the Touch Bar. Both laptops are a true return to form for the MacBook Pro. They also offer exceptional battery life.
As revealed by our Tom’s Guide battery tests, the 14-inch MacBook Pro with an M1 Pro chip can last 14:08 hours (with ProMotion refresh rate). The M1 Max-powered 16-inch MacBook lasted 15:31, also with ProMotion. You’ll get all-day use out of both laptops, which is quite impressive considering the power under their respective hoods.
