2021 vs. 2023 MacBook Pro Buyer's Guide

15 days ago MacRumors Forums

Upon the launch of the latest models, the 2021 MacBook Pros were discontinued and are no longer available from Apple's main storefront. Buying a 2021 model second-hand is also an option.First-time MacBook Pro‌ customers or those upgrading from a much older device may be wondering whether it is worth buying a 2021 model, so it will be important to weigh up exactly what was added with the latest version. Likewise, existing users of the 2021 MacBook Pro may be wondering if it is worth upgrading to the latest model or sticking with their current device.See the detailed breakdown below for each new feature, change, and improvement that was added with each ‌high-end Apple silicon MacBook Pro compared to its direct predecessor:With only a minor update in 2023, the 2021 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are still a very good option if you can get them for a sufficiently low price. Even then, it is difficult to recommend buying a 2023 MacBook Pro at full price over an equivalent, heavily discounted 2021 model.If you already have a 2021 14- or 16-inch MacBook Pro, it is unlikely that upgrading to a 2023 model will be worthwhile. It is also worth noting that in many countries outside the United States, the 2023 MacBook Pro models come with a hefty price hike – meaning that it will also likely be more economical to stick with 2021 model you already have.Article Link: 2021 vs. 2023 MacBook Pro Buyer's Guide

1st time Buying Advice: Help me pick a MacBook (Air/Pro)

Hello dear people of macrumors,I've entered the Apple cosmos in 2018 with an iPhone X and by now, use an iPhone 14P, Watch6 and an iPad Pro (2018).I always wanted to get an Apple computer or laptop at some point and I feel like I would like to do this in 2023 and retire my 10year old Windows machine.- portable, preferably 13/14"- standard tasks like emails, browsing the web, watching videos/photos, tax software, Word/Excel/Powerpoint,- option to get into video/photo editing- option to music recording/producingI play the piano and write texts some times and after 2 really ugly years for me, my wish is to expand my hobbies and get a life worth living again and I realise that music, the pursuit and occupation with creative things enrich my life.I would like to have the option to have machine that gives me a good start into music recording/production, to experiment, to play around, to have a lot of options. I know this is not very specific, but since I'm only used to analog instruments there is not much experience yet for me on computers and software.I enjoyed recording videos and taking photos and playing around, even with just the iPhone 14P and I'm just really tired of Windows 8.1 (which is also not supported anymore).I've come across @MajorFubar 's thread about his homestudio and I find it very inspirational and also a great insight into what is possible at home.I would love to hear from more experienced Mac(book) (Air/Pro)-users what to look for.What do I need? M2 Pro/Max? How much RAM, should I max it out and aim for 10 years usage like I did with my previous machine?Should I look at 2-5 years and sell it on, get a newer one so buy less spec-version?Many thanks for all your input!

iPhone 14 Pro Supply Remains Heavily Constrained Ahead of the Holidays, But Other Products Available

As we inch closer to the holidays, supply of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models remains heavily constrained and unlikely to meet the holiday demand in the United States. On the flip side, several other products, including iPads, Macs, lower-end iPhone models, AirPods, and more, remain available for customers who are holiday shopping this year.As we reported last month, supply constraints and ongoing restrictions in Apple's production plants meant that iPhone 14 Pro supply would be critically low. "We now expect lower iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments than we previously anticipated, and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products," Apple said in a press release last month, confirming reports of disruptions.One month later and closer to the holidays, iPhone 14 Pro supply seems to have not yet fully recovered. Wait times for both models of the high-end 2022 iPhone series were set at around six weeks one month ago, and are now set at around three weeks. For example, the lower-end iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are estimated to arrive to customers in just a few days, according to Apple's online store, as are the third-generation AirPods and AirPods Pro, new 10th-generation iPad, certain Macs, Apple Watch, and HomePod mini.For more up-to-date information regarding availability and delivery dates, be sure to check Apple's website Article Link: iPhone 14 Pro Supply Remains Heavily Constrained Ahead of the Holidays, But Other Products Available
