Three Reasons to Ignore Apple MacBook Pro

One of the reasons many will turn to a MacBook Pro over a MacBook Air is the perceived extra power available on the Pro.

While this is the case for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops, the 13-inch MacBook runs the same M2 chipset as the MacBook Air.

If power is what you need, the answer isn't the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

You might not be looking for power but for a laptop that will get you through the day at work and at leisure, and the flexibility of a MacBook Pro has some appeal.

That's a big use case for Apple's consumer laptops, and there's a better choice that offers nearly the same performance at a better price.

Note that MacBook Air and MacBook Pro share the same M2 processor.

Day-to-day work on a laptop won't push the M2 to the edge of the performance envelope.

If an all-rounder laptop is what you need, the 13-inch MacBook Pro isn't the answer.

Finally, there is something more elusive. M2 MacBook Pro is new.

If new and shiny is the way forward, the 13-inch MacBook Pro isn't your answer.
