Which MacBook Pro to buy
Apple revealed the first Macs running custom Apple Silicon in November 2020 with the launch of the M1 processor — and in 2022 launched the second-generation M2 chip, which can be found in the current 13-inch MacBook Pro. The 2022 MacBook Pro 13-inch model is an incremental upgrade, retaining the same form factor and Touch Bar found in the M1 model. Customers who want consumer-grade performance in a sleek and portable notebook may want to consider the MacBook Air instead, but the M2-based MacBook Pro does offer Touch Bar functionality for those who prefer that over traditional function keys.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro and 14-inch MacBook Pro were revealed in October 2021 with the high-end M1 Pro and M1 Max processors.

Both sizes of the 2021 MacBook Pros have identical specs, ports, and displays, but start at significantly different prices. The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999 and quickly increases in price based on configuration. The 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 and has less thermal constraints, so can offer even better performance from the same processors.
Choosing between the three MacBook Pro models is actually quite simple. Get the 13-inch MacBook Pro if price is a concern or you can't live without the Touch Bar. Again, those in this category should also consider the MacBook Air since it has no fan and a lower price point.
For professionals seeking a laptop, the high starting price may not be a problem, but the choice in processors and configurations may be daunting. The M1 Pro processor is a great pro-level processor that will handle all but the most intensive tasks, and will pair well with the 14-inch MacBook Pro. Those who want all-out performance capabilities with less thermal constraints will go for the 16-inch MacBook Pro without thinking twice. Expect to see aggressive Black Friday MacBook Pro deals in 2022 as the M1 Max and M1 Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models mark their year anniversary of being on the market.
