Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2022, M2) Review

 

Performance tops M1 predecessor and Intel competitors ; Tried-and-true design ; Fantastic 22-hour battery life

Dated physical design ; Lackluster 720p webcam and 2,560-by-1,600-pixel display ; Supports just one external display ; Touch Bar has its proponents, but feels like a design throwback

The 2022 reboot of Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro gets points for its peppy new M2 processor, which delivers a raw-performance uptick, and remains an iconic design. But we'd have liked to see more daring innovation on the rest of the laptop.

Apple MacBook Pro 13 2022 M2 Laptop Review – Debut for the new Apple M2

 

Notebookcheck reviews the updates 2022 Apple MacBook Pro 13 with the brand-new Apple M2 SoC and 16 GB RAM. There were plenty of rumors and speculations about a full redesign of the new MacBook Air with Apple's M2 processor , but the first MacBook with...

efficient and powerful Apple M2 SoC;build quality and iconic design;very high system performance;very good display;good speakers;very long battery runtime;usually silent in everyday situations

very noisy fan in combined CPU/GPU workloads;weak 720p webcam;Wi-Fi 6 limited to 80 MHz;neither MagSafe, Thunderbolt 4, nor PCIe 4.0

The 2022 MacBook Pro 13 might look like recycling at first, because the device is completely identical to the old model expect for the new M2 SoC. This also means you once again get the Touch Bar, even though all other MacBooks have switched back to...

MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) review

 

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch comes with Apple's new M2 chip, but the same old design.

Excellent performance ; Long battery life ; Very good build quality ; Almost silent in use

Old design ; Only two Thunderbolt ports ; Touch Bar feels more redundant than ever ; New MacBook Air could be better buy

There’s no doubt that the MacBook Pro 13-inch is a fantastic laptop for creative professionals, but some odd design choices and a more exciting MacBook Air coming soon, makes this entry feel a little directionless.

13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 review: Incremental upgrade and unexciting | AppleInsider

 

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro is the first to arrive with the Apple Silicon M2 processor, but in every other aspect, it clings to an old design ethos in every regard.

Improvement over the 2020 M1 13-inch MacBook Pro ; Still quiet under load

Two Thunderbolt ports without a power port is still not enough without a dock ; There's the MacBook Air on the horizon, and that looks better ; Six-year-old design

MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) review

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 2022 delivers mind-blowing performance and record-breaking battery life thanks to its M2 processor.

If you need a laptop that can deliver sustained performance and unmatched battery life, the MacBook Pro 2022 is a worthwhile investment. This is especially true for those who are still lugging around an Intel-powered Apple laptop. But if you don’t...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) review

 

Apple's most affordable MacBook Pro gets a bump that's both exciting… and a bit boring

M2 chip is a brilliant performer ; Excellent battery life ; Almost silent in use ; Can even play games

No new design ; Still only two Thunderbolt ports ; 720p webcam ; New MacBook Air offers better value

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M2, 2022) comes with Apple's latest M2 chip and offers excellent performance and battery life. However, there's no new design here, and with the new MacBook Air snapping at its heels, this laptop feels a bit redundant in...
