The most recent 16-inch MacBook Pro from Apple is unquestionably their top-performing laptop yet. However, even after almost two years, the previous model is still a powerhouse, especially with its current discount of nearly $2,000: B&H Photo is offering the 16-inch MacBook Pro with an M1 Max processor, 64GB of RAM, and 4TB of storage for only $2,999, a huge savings of $1,900 and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this specific setup.
Despite being almost two years old, the M1 Max processor remains a powerful device with 10 CPU cores and 32 GPU cores. It also boasts 64GB of memory and 4TB of storage, making it a long-lasting machine. Additionally, it features a breathtaking 16.2-inch Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, True Tone, Wide color P3, and a peak brightness of 1,600 nits. With over 20 hours of battery life and various expansion options including three Thunderbolt ports, an SD card reader, HDMI, and MagSafe for quick charging, this model truly has it all.
Apart from the processor, the main variations between this laptop and the more recent M2 model are minimal: it utilizes Wi-Fi 6 instead of Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.0 instead of Bluetooth 5.3, and HDMI 2.1 instead of 2.0. However, unless you have particular requirements, these differences do not justify the $1,900 price difference. In terms of performance, this laptop can easily compete with the $5,000 M2 Max model.
