After the first unboxing video and real-life photos of the 14-inch MacBook Pro surfaced online yesterday, now it’s time for the first hands-on of the 16-inch MacBook Pro powered by the M1 Pro processor. As posted by a Reddit user, there’s a new video online posted by YouTuber SANG SÁNG SUỐT showing how the new 16-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro looks in real life and compared to the old Intel 15-inch model.

In the video, more notably, you can see all the new ports: HDMI slot, headphone jack, three Thunderbolt ports, and an SD port as well. Not only that, we get to see how the notch – or the “webcam household” – works while in Safari. In this case, a black bar covers everything and the notch gets unnoticeable.

Compared to the Intel 15-inch model, this new 16-inch MacBook Pro looks slightly bigger, although it’s slightly smaller when compared to the 16-inch Intel model.


This new MacBook Pro was introduced during Apple’s “Unleashed” event with two versions: 14-inch and 16-inch. For the first time, a MacBook Pro features a 1080p webcam, and compared to the last M1 processor, Apple says the M1 Pro chip can offer 70% faster performance and 2x faster GPU performance than the previous processor.

Not only that, but bezels are thinner although the new 16-inch MacBook Pro is a little bit heavier. Although we don’t speak Vietnamese, it’s interesting to watch the 8-minute long video comparing this new Mac with the old 15-inch MacBook Pro.

According to Apple, the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are going to be available next Tuesday, October 26. Although pre-orders have started to prepare for shipment, this is the first time we see this new Mac in real life.
