Apple Mac Studio review: Big Mac mini | Engadget


Apple's Mac Studio is the desktop many creatives have been waiting for..

Sleek design

Not upgradeable

Apple sent along two Mac Studio models for testing: one with an M1 Max chip and 64GB of RAM, and another with the M1 Ultra chip and 128GB of RAM. (I can say with certainty there's never been this much RAM on my desk at once.) The M1 Max is pretty much...

Apple Mac Studio (M1 Ultra) Review


Incredible performance from M1 Ultra processor ; Impressive industrial design ; Plenty of ports

Display and accessories sold separately ; Not user-upgradable after purchase

If you want power, the Apple Mac Studio with an M1 Ultra chip brings it in spades, elevating the elegant desktop PC with truly impressive processing and graphics.

Apple Mac Studio Review


Impressive performance from M1 Max processor ; Stunning industrial design ; Lots of ports

Doesn't outperform the M1 Max-based MacBook Pro by much ; No keyboard or mouse included ; Not user-upgradable after purchase

Apple's Mac Studio is a gorgeous, powerful compact desktop for content-crunching professionals. Our test model shows it running close to some MacBook Pros, though, which narrows its potential audience to those dead-set on a desktop plus a big monitor.

Apple Mac Studio with M1 Ultra review: A workstation-class upgrade for iMac and Mac Mini users | ZDNet


The Mac Studio proves that Apple Silicon, and the M1 Ultra in particular, can deliver genuine workstation performance and gives the professional end of Apple's desktop range a welcome shot in the arm.

Compact design ; Workstation-class performance ; Good connectivity ; Runs cool and quiet

Expensive ; No internal expansion or user upgrades ; Monitor, mouse and keyboard are extra-cost items

Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra review


The Apple Mac Studio M1 Ultra is small but mighty - the creative's flexible workstation

Incredible processing power ; Energy saving credentials ; Dedicated media engines ; Portable form-factor ; Cost effective high-end workstation

Limited user upgradability ; Lots of ports, but maybe not enough ; No keyboard and mouse included

An absolute powerhouse lies within this tiny, perfectly formed, enclosure with enough processing capability to take on the most powerful Intel Mac Pro systems out there, while only a quarter of their price (and size). Add to that its energy-saving...

Mac Studio review


We check out Apple's latest Mac, aimed at creative professionals.

Very powerful ; Compact design ; Plenty of ports ; Silent in use

Expensive ; Non-upgradable ; Overkill for many people

The Mac Studio is one of the best creative workstations you can buy right now, especially if you're after high performance in a small form factor. It makes light work of even the most intense projects, from editing ultra-high definition videos in Final...

Mac Studio with M1 UItra review: A look at the future power of Apple Silicon | AppleInsider


Apple's high-end Mac Studio brings phenomenal power in a very small enclosure. It is very clearly not for everybody, but every Mac user should be excited about what it portends for the very-near future.

Incredible speed ; G4 cube or Mac mini desk footprint ; Front-mounted ports ; Quieter than alternatives under load but...

... not silent when idle ; RAM and SSD prices are borderline extortionate ; Apple has a funny definition of modular

Apple Mac Studio review: This is fast


Apple's Mac Studio can deliver more power than almost any other PC on the market, and it packs it all into a quiet, well-designed chassis that looks good on a desk.

Blazing-fast performance from M1 Ultra ; Great design ; Plenty of ports ; Whisper-quiet

Expensive for what you get, especially at the high end

But if you want the best Mac desktop with the most powerful piece of Apple silicon yet, you want a Mac Studio with M1 Ultra.
