Like every Sunday, Mark Gurman returns to speak in his usual weekly appointment with the Power On newsletter. This time, it’s about the MacBook Pro but also the future M2 chip, a road that could cross again according to Gurman.
As you know, the first MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon arrived with the launch of the M1 chip. Subsequently, the Cupertino company overhauled the MacBook Pro lineup with the launch of two high-performance chips in October and a major hardware review that also saw the arrival of the ProMotion display and a refreshed design. However, Apple seems willing to maintain an “entry-level” range of the Pro line, launching a new MacBook Pro with M2 chip later this year. This model would obviously replace the 13-inch MacBook Pro M1.
According to Gurman, this model will not integrate the ProMotion screen and will offer fewer solutions in terms of unified memory and mass. The display technology will presumably be LCD, with mini LEDs which should remain exclusive to the top model with M1 Pro / Max. It is of course understood that Apple will also update the 24″ iMac, Mac Mini and MacBook Air line with the M2 chip.
Have you ever planned on buying a new Mac? Will you buy a current model or wait for the new M2 chip models?
