The M2 Pro MacBook Pro is a fantastic machine with a speed processor and an upgraded HDMI port, but the prior M1 model is still a fantastic machine. And you can still get one for an incredible price: Amazon is selling the 16-inch MacBook Pro in space gray with an M1 Max processor for $2,899, a savings of $600 and $100 lower than the previous all-time low. The silver version is also on sale for $500 off.
Even though it’s over a year old, we can’t say enough good things about the 16-inch MacBook Pro. It has an older M1 Max processor, but it’s still plenty fast with a 10‑core CPU and 32‑core GPU, and 32GB of RAM. It also has the same incredible 16.2-inch ProMotion display, excellent keyboard, and array of ports, including three Thunderbolt ports, HDMI, and an SD card reader. Along with the processor, the other differences between the two machines are Wi-FI 6 (versus Wi-Fi 6E on the 2023 model), Bluetooth 5 (versus 5.3), and HDMI 2 (versus 2.1).
But at a whopping $600 off, those small things don’t matter nearly as much. In our 4.5-star review of the 16-inch M1 Max MacBook, we called it “unbelievable” and “amazing,” and our opinion hasn’t changed. So go grab one before they’re gone forever.
