Two new MacBook Pro models
The announcement confirms all the reasons I’ve been telling people to wait before buying a MacBook Pro these past few months.
It was worth the wait.
Although many of the features follow a predictable path, Apple still knows how to build exceptionally beautiful technology that exceeds previous capabilities, which puts it apart from the laptop category — again. Previous models were released 456 days ago, making this 2023 update just two months after the sweet spot for Apple’s average timing in product cycles for the MacBook Pro line.
New MacBook Pro 14 and 16 features
Commendable highlights of the new MacBook Pro 14 and 16:
- Quickly. The muscle M2 Pro and the supercharged beast called the M2 Max are both 20% faster than the previous equivalent silicon M1.
- Longer battery life. Up to 22 hours of battery life is the longest battery life ever for a Mac on a single charge. (Expect 18 hours max on the slightly smaller MacBook Pro 14)
- 8K video On XDR Liquid Retina display and HDMI port
- Wi-Fi 6ethe fastest new wireless standard for the highest speeds yet

The 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 with the standard M2 Pro silicon, 16GB of memory, and 512GB of SSD storage.

Mac Mini updated after more than two years
In conjunction with the announcements of the MacBook Pro 14 and 16, Apple is also refreshing the Mac Mini by giving it a similar muscle boost to the M2 and a starting price of $599. This is the Mac with all hardware and power cord in the box with no monitor, no keyboard, no mouse.

I use my previous Mac Mini with M1 silicon to run our wallpapers you see in videos and on TV. It’s been running uninterrupted for a year, it’s slung behind a 75-inch studio monitor, it’s great and reliable, it works great and it’s a complete workhorse.
The MacBook Pro 14, MacBook Pro 16, and Mac Mini are open for orders now and available starting January 24th.
