It runs cool and quiet, and even Intel apps work just fine with Rosetta. Now if only we could get a 32GB option for true pros, as well as some more ports.Laptop Magazine100The 13-inch MacBook Pro gets even more powerfulArmed with Apple’s new M1 SoC, the MacBook Pro brings power, endurance and a host of new features in that familiar iconic chassis.Tom's Guide90Peak MacBookThe MacBook Pro with M1 delivers a killer combo of blazing performance and epic battery life, even if the design is too familiar.TechRadar90Apple’s little MacBook Pro gets a big refreshThe MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) is the most exciting laptop Apple has released in years. The new M1 chip offers exceptional battery life, and in our early testing performance has been excellent. It's just a shame about the old design.The Verge90FLEXING ARMI would happily trade back the seconds of faster rendering time on the Pro for the hours of frustration caused by the Touch Bar. And if you have much more serious performance needs, it seems likely that you might want more than two ports, 16GB of RAM, and only one external display. So this machine is a tweener — an excellent, fascinating tweener, but a tweener nonetheless.
