Apple has just unveiled an all-new MacBook Pro, which is the first to feature the coveted in-house M1 processor. Only this time around, it's not the standard M1 processor, seen with the MacBook Air and iMac updates from earlier this year, but the M1 Pro—which clocks in 70% faster than the standard M1. And if you really want to amp things up, you can upgrade to the M1 Max processor, which adds 32 GPU cores, rather than 16 GPU cores, and has support for up to 64GB of RAM.

Both 14- and 16-inch models are set to launch on Oct. 26, each with an updated build featuring a sleek design with slimmer bezels and a blacked-out Magic Keyboard with full-height function keys and Touch ID. The displays have also been updated substantially, while a 1080p FaceTime camera and studio-quality mics upgrade WFH life and Zoom calls substantially. In terms of ports, you're looking at HDMI, SD card, three Thunderbolt 4 ports, and power via USB-C with MagSafe connect.

For those interesting in picking one up, you can get your pre-order in right here starting Oct. 22. Pricing starts at $1,999 USD.
