New Apple silicon, new display, new design, and all the ports we’ve been asking for: The latest 16in MacBook Pro is the best Pro ever. Every year, Apple shows the world how hardware and software should live and work together like a marriage made in heaven, and this year’s no different. The Pro-grade hardware and the latest macOS extract max performance from the components while delivering excellent battery life. The new mini-LED high-res display is among the best we have seen on a laptop, but that notch will take a bit of getting used to. All the ports are also back, so you can put your plans to buy a dock on the back burner. Not surprisingly, all this comes at a cost, and a huge one at that. But if you want the best, this one’s it.
Best of the rest: Asus Zenbook Duo 14 ● Dell XPS 17 ● Xiaomi Mi Notebook Ultra ● Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i
