Apple unveils new MacBook Pro and new Mac mini featuring M2 Pro and M2 Max

MacBook Pro

With M2 Pro and M2 Max — the world’s most powerful and efficient chip for a pro laptop — MacBook Pro tackles demanding tasks, like effects rendering, which is up to 6x faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro, and colour grading, which is up to 2x faster.

Building on the unprecedented power efficiency of Apple silicon, the battery life on the MacBook Pro is now up to 22 hours — the longest battery life ever in a Mac. For enhanced connectivity, the new MacBook Pro supports Wi-Fi 6E, which is up to twice as fast as the previous generation, as well as advanced HDMI, which supports 8K, displays for the first time.

With up to 96GB of unified memory in the M2 Max model, creators can work on scenes so large that PC laptops can’t even run them.

Rounding out the unrivalled features of the MacBook Pro are its renowned Liquid Retina XDR display, an extensive array of connectivity, 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system, and studio-quality mics.

Customers can order the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro beginning Thursday, January 19, with availability beginning Friday, February 3.

MacBook Mini

With the M2 chip, the Mac mini is even more powerful, capable, and affordable with a new starting price of just S$849.

The new M2 Pro chip delivers pro-level performance to Mac mini for the first time, enabling users to run high-performance workflows that were previously unimaginable in such a compact design. M2 Pro brings pro-level performance to Mac mini for the first time. Featuring up to a 12-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, along with up to a 19-core GPU, M2 Pro has 200GB/s of memory bandwidth — double the amount in M2 — and supports up to 32GB of memory.

Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro delivers faster performance, even more, unified memory, and advanced connectivity, including support for up to two displays on the M2 model, and up to three displays on the M2 Pro model. Paired with Studio Display and Magic accessories, along with the power and ease of macOS Ventura, the Mac mini provides a phenomenal desktop experience that will take users’ productivity and creativity to the next level.

Customers can order the new Mac mini models beginning Monday, January 30.

M2 Pro and M2 Max

M2 Pro scales up the architecture of M2 to deliver an up to 12-core CPU and up to 19-core GPU, together with up to 32GB of fast unified memory. M2 Max builds on the capabilities of M2 Pro, including an up to 38-core GPU, double the unified memory bandwidth, and up to 96GB of unified memory.

Its industry-leading performance per watt makes it the world’s most powerful and power-efficient chip for a pro laptop. Both chips also feature enhanced custom technologies, including a faster 16-core Neural Engine and Apple’s powerful media engine.

M2 Pro brings pro performance to the Mac mini for the first time, while M2 Pro and M2 Max take the game-changing performance and capabilities of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro even further.
