Apple updates MacBook Pro lineup with M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max chips

Macworld

Apple on Monday revealed its new MacBook Pro lineup with few changes other than a new chip. The MacBook Pro family is now powered by the M3 family of processors, including the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max. The only other change is a slightly brighter display (600 nits max SDR brightness vs 500 previously) and higher RAM limits up to 128GB. And there’s a new Space Black color for the M3 Pro and M3 Max models.

Here are the specs and pricing for the new machines:

14-inch MacBook Pro

14-inch MacBook Pro with M3 ($1,599): base M3 chip, 8 CPU cores, 10-core GPU, 8GB unified memory, 512GB SSD. Available in Silver or Space Gray. A model with the same CPU but a 1TB SSD is $1,799. This laptop replaces the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro.

MacBook Pro design and 13-inch MacBook Pro discontinued

Apple has not changed the design of the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro, which were introduced in 2021. The laptops still have the notch at the top of the display that houses the 1080p FaceTime camera, thin bezels, and cases made of recycled aluminum.

The major case change is the new Space Black color that has an “anodization seal” to reduce fingerprints. Space Black or Silver is available on MacBook Pros with the M3 Pro or M3 Max chips. Those same MacBook Pro models are no longer available in Space Gray.

The 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro has replaced the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which featured an older design that included the Touch Bar and larger display bezels. The only places where you’ll find the 13-inch MacBook Pro (M1 or M2) is in Apple’s Certified Refurbished Store or at a third-party retailer.
