Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020)

Two-minute review

When the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) launched, it signalled a new era for Apple. That’s thanks to the fact that, along with the MacBook Air (M1, 2020) and Mac mini (M1, 2020) which released at the same time, it came with Apple’s own SoC, the M1 chip, instead of an Intel CPU. Apple has managed to reinvigorate its laptops with its first significant improvement in a long time as well as remind everyone why its devices are so highly regarded.

Though the M1 chip is a huge upgrade, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) is otherwise almost completely unchanged from the early 2020 model. And, while there are no other updates, that processor is still an impressive leap in performance. It’s not only three times speedier than equivalent Windows laptops, but is 2.8 times quicker than the Pro model it replaced. On top of that, it comes with a longer battery life.
