Both the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro 2023 can be had with either Apple’s new M2 Pro or M2 Max chips that offer 20% and 30% faster CPU and GPU performance, respectively, compared to the M1.

They will also come with updated unified memory options. The M2 Pro models can be had with 16GB or 32GB of memory, while the M2 Max has whopping 32GB, 64GB, and 96GB options. Storage options start at 512GB and up to 8TB.

Despite the increase in performance, the new 2023 MacBook Pros will have longer battery life. The 14-inch model can last for up to 12 hours of web browsing while the bigger 16-inch can do 15 hours.

Both models also have similar screens. Despite the difference in sizes, they will look equally sharp at 254ppi. Apple’s ProMotion technology which provides an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate is also here, as well as True Tone.
