Digital Camera World Verdict

The MacBook Pro 14-inch is one of the best laptops we’ve ever used. It won’t be for everyone, but if you have the budget, this portable powerhouse is an incredible investment for photographers and video makers. If you want a larger screen, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is a great alternative.

Apple launched the brand-new MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) alongside the new MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021), offering a laptop that’s smaller and more portable than the 16-inch model, while offering a larger screen than the 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro from last year.

Apart from the screen size, the MacBook Pro 14-inch (2021) is almost exactly the same as the MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021), and considering we rate that as one of the best photo-editing laptops ever made, that’s a very good thing indeed.
