Redesigned MacBook Pro is significantly faster than the Intel model

Apple announced the redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in late 2021. It brings a significant step up in performance and efficiency from the previous Intel-based model.

Apple claims the new MacBook Pro is up to 2x faster than the 16-inch Intel MacBook Pro in many pro workflows. Machine learning performance is up to 5x faster thanks to the 16-core Neural Engine. Despite the massive performance improvements, the 2021 MacBook Pro is rated to last for up to 21 hours on battery.

The redesigned chassis has a more squared-off design, with Apple bringing back the HDMI port and MagSafe 3 for charging. The latter allows you to top up the MacBook Pro’s battery to 50% in just 30 minutes.

Save $250 off on 16-inch MacBook Pro

Amazon offers a flat 10% discount on the entry-level 16-inch MacBook Pro with 512GB storage. After the discount, you can get the machine for $2,249 — a sweet $250 off. The deal is available in both silver and space gray shades. The 1TB storage model also carries a similar $250 discount. So, you can grab one for $2,449 instead of paying $2,699 for it.

What’s even more impressive is that Amazon has the M1 Max variant with 32GB RAM and 1TB SSD on sale as well. The model retails for $3,499, but after a $250 discount, you can purchase it for just $3,249. This is the lowest price we have tracked the M1 Max MacBook Pro go down to, and you will not find a better deal on it anytime soon.
