M3 MacBook Pro: Design and Features
The M3 MacBook Pro remains unchanged in design from the M2 models, except for the addition of a new color option. The M3 Pro and M3 Max versions are now offered in a stylish Space Black, in addition to Silver. However, if you purchase the base M3 14-inch model, your color choices are limited to Space Grey and Silver. Unfortunately, there is no Titanium option available, despite some requests from Mac enthusiasts.
The screen has seen a slight upgrade, with SDR brightness increasing from 500 nits in earlier versions to 600 nits.
Apart from the marginally more luminous screen, there have been no alterations to the characteristics. The battery longevity specifications from Apple mirror those of the previous M2 version, with the size, weight, camera, microphones, speakers, ports, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth all identical to that of the MacBook Pro with M2.
