2021 14in MacBook Pro: A MONTH Later Review



This is the 2021 14in M1 Pro MacBook Pro. Apple’s first redesigned MacBook pro in 5 years. It’s got some massive gains in weight, size, and functionality. I’ve had this laptop since launch and we’re here to talk about this laptop and see if it’s worth it for you. Let’s get started with a little review.

The model I have here is the base model $2,000 14in MacBook Pro. The 14in Macbook pro is bigger than the previous 13in MacBook pros in both screen size and body. Overall the device is boxier, with significantly more ports, a Magsafe 3 port, 2 USB 4 ports, and a headphone jack on the left side, and on the right side it has an HDMI port, a USB 4 port and SD card slot. The lid has the usual Apple logo, but this time, a bit bigger than before, and the lid itself is now flat. The back is easily removable, making it easier to clean by unscrewing these 8 hex screws. When you open the laptop you can still open it with just a single finger, the hinge feels as smooth as older Apple laptops and when you close the lid you hear this audible but satisfying click. The display is bigger, has smaller bezels and there’s now this notch, similar to the iphone’s. It doesn’t have a face id, but there is an updated 1080p webcam in there that I’d like to think looks pretty good. The keyboard replaced the old shorter function row with full size keys, and Apple got rid of the touch bar altogether from the 14 and 16in macbook pros.
Let’s talk about personal experiences I had. I charge it maybe every 3 or 4 days. And that’s because these Apple silicon Macs are really good at sipping minimal power when they’re in sleep mode. And while the magsafe port is dedicated to charging, you can still charge the laptop via usb-c. The speakers on the MacBook pro sound great for a laptop and not what you expect out of a laptop at all. When doing casual things, like email, writing documents, and watching videos and movies, the laptop stays cold. And it really only starts to warm up when you’re charging the laptop, have a bunch of tabs open, connected to monitors, downloading massive files or video editing. The M1 Pro chip in the Macbook is fantastic. This applies to the original M1 as well, that chip already made Apple’s less expensive laptops feel super smooth but this MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro and 120Hz Display takes it to a new level. Personally, I think 120Hz is nice to have but not necessarily a game changer and 60Hz is good enough, but 120Hz definitely makes things feel even smoother than before. The Mini-Led display is a nice upgrade, but I feel it didn’t make a significant difference. Watching video content on the laptop is more immersive now because of it, but on higher brightnesses the halo “glow” of bright objects on dark backgrounds get more and more apparent.
Performance of the MacBook Pro is great, I ran into no issues with video editing multiple streams of 4K footage in FCPX and exporting video with the MacBook Pro is fast. My last video on the Pixel 6 Pro was 9:55 seconds long. And getting that ProRes 422 LT timeline exported into .264 for upload onto Youtube took only 10:35 seconds. Editing 24MP photos in affinity photo for my YouTube thumbnails is also smooth.Plugging in two 4K external monitors was absolutely no problem for it. The MacBook pro also does okay on gaming. On everyone’s favorite, Mac gaming benchmark, shadow of the tomb raider. It ran low settings at 720p and averaged 95 FPS. On high settings at 1920p, it averaged 48 FPS. But the perks of having these apple silicon macs, is that they do get access to the iOS library of apps.

Should you get the 14in MacBook Pro? It depends. If you’re a student or a person doing light work documents or photography then I really think you should look at the M1 MacBook Air instead. But If you’re someone who needs the extra power, and do things professionally, then I think this 14in MacBook Pro is a great machine for you. I think this is my go-to Mac recommendation for people who use their laptops to create things, or need a laptop with even better performance than the already fantastic M1 macs while still keeping the good battery life. It’s Apple’s most “Pro” laptop in a long time.

  1. Wow! That is the worse ad spiel I’ve ever heard. Complete turn off.

  2. I decided to go with one of these for work as I have to crunch a lot of numbers in SPSS and R. I can only get a replacement machine every 4 years, so I wanted something as future proof as possible. Also, I can get away with taking just an iPad on most business trips, so the weight was not as much of an issue as it was the last time I bought a machine for work.

  3. the camera looks stupid.

  4. you need eye glasses to plug cable's in ports.

  5. Watching this as I am disappointed there’s no replacement of the iMac 27”

  6. Studying electrical engineering, I usually learn python,cad and every day watch dramas can I buy a macbook 14 for this?

    What mouse do you use? Looks cool!

  8. 4:26 "Enough to fit a grown man's fist inside…" . Hmmmm !

    Thank you , I like how you review stuff based on facts & experience welcome to the Google 6Pro club I got Razer 17.3 3080 4k touch screen either getting Razer 14 or apple 14 is already got the 16 & studio in my office

  10. Admiral Khalifa Al Qubaisi

    I keep all my laptops , just a question , does the 2015 charger magsafe works on the 14
    inch and 16inch

  11. I still use my MBP 2015 cuz it got all the ports. The newer gen has only type c until the newest MBP. I am glad they bring back the HDMI, MagSafe charger. Yet one more feature is missing, the glowing Apple logo.

  12. Rezonant Warrior

    Does the headphone jack have actual audio input like the old pro’s

  13. Can’t Airdrop from MBP to my iPad but can do it the other way. When I try to connect to MBP via BT is says that MBP is not supported. Bit annoyed to be honest as I wanted to uses my iPad as an additional screen.

  14. Nothing Is True Everything is permitted

    Beautiful review!

  15. thanks man, this video helped a lot to deciding to buy it for my study. Upgrading from the 2015 pro

  16. I just upgraded from a 12" MacBook to the mid model 12" with 32gb ram, and it is fantastic! It replaced my WinTel desktop my computer.

  17. Love your mac standing doc. Link please.

  18. thumbs down for the stupid promotion. WHO THE FUCK OPTIMIZES A UNIX SYSTEM! Even with youtube premium I have to listen to stupid in video promotions? Forget it!

  19. Great review! What mouse are you using with the macbook pro in the video?

  20. cut your nails bro.

  21. I just like that it has ports again, also the new display and larger screen are a plus. I have the Macbook Pro M1 13 and it still a great laptop but it needs more ports rather then having to have dongles. I have considered getting that Laptop and trading my 13 inch in for it however it is still a very expensive laptop

  22. Great review expect for the corny jokes

  23. Do not use Clean my MAC!! Shit is a scam. This program may remove things you need and will slow down your computer! It completely screwed one of my macs

  24. Does the keyboard leave marks on the screen like it did with the 2017 macbook pro? This was because when closed the corners of each key would be touching the screen.

  25. "you might jam your cord into the wrong port, clearly where it doesn't belong"

    That's what she said
