  • Marques production quality is on point, mad respect for 14 years of hard work

    • I watch every video just because they are so good looking. It's like candy for my eyes. Respect +

    • I can only understand what he’s saying at 0.75 speed lol

    • Not enough details on specs. I am not here only for the dopamin rush.

    • He’s cold wit it for sure πŸ₯Ά

    • @zulfika He probably had those because he was interested in those things before ID-tv? He worked hard for a decade to get where he is today.

  • Still one of my favorite tech channels!

  • Sleek video editing quality, but also the review feels more grounded unlike those usual company-style reviews. Great vid, Marques and the team!

  • This man has a God level production team. Kudos to your Art Director!

  • the opening shot looks amazing! you can tell they’re getting so much better at using that robot lol

  • Looks like your production quality is also increasing incrementally by 20% every year, it's awesome to see you and your team expressing your passion!

  • That intro felt like an apple event

  • I just love how much production went into you showing us the same gray box we've been getting for quite some time now.

  • The production quality has gone up and up and up and doesn't stop. Great work Marques and team!

    • @GOAT OF DUTY and you took the time out of your day to be negative, also without any points. I hope something brings you joy today, a**hole.

    • Bad joke, your comment as well as the "review" with basically barely any points.

  • That intro felt like an apple event. Great job MKBHD team!

    • How, he gave a pretty honest review

    • @Pritesh Ruthun lol what?

    • That’s cause this channel is basically an Apple ad company.

    • looks like marques become a advertiser for Apple

    • LOL...this is what they mean when they say self congratulatory, kids.

  • still can't get over how clean that intro was, probably the best they've had

  • The quality is so good that you wonder why other tech channels even try πŸ˜‚ I've been watching for over 8 years so it's crazy to see the growth. Great review, I am hesitating between the M1 and M2 and this helped a lot.

    • @Vic Birth thats why i specified IF you find m1 on a good deal

    • practically the same price to be honest.

    • @Awa Ndiaye M1 pro should be more than good enough for that so yes if you get a good deal on it, go for it over the M2

    • @Hamza Ahmad definitely m1 is enough

    • @Hamza Ahmad Thank you for your input! I have 2 youtube channels and a blog that I run. So a lot of editing and writing. Plus some designing that needs to be done every day and a lot of freelance work haha The M1 should be good for that right?

  • I really want to say just how much I respect what you do and your approach man. You deserve all the success and more for raising the bar and showing just how good ID-tv can be.

  • 3:30 2 questions... a) where are the more recent cpus from Intel on the cinebench charts as comparison? I did not see 12 or 13th gen represented. b) I know thermal throttling can make a difference in overall performance. Any idea how the cooling solution on these laptops are doing in keeping the cpu working full speed for more than a minute?

    • As a comparison the Core i9-13900K scores 2,243 in single-core and 39,689 multi-core.

  • Man these intros are super crazy! Kudos to the team for hours if not days of planning and execution to render out the finest of intros!!

    • @LittleBigParardise I guess we’re different

    • @TheEncryptedPartition aesthetics is part of the content? If you just wanted info then read an article. You are just barfing words hoping that one of them will stick to the board of meaning. Look, I can do it too. lol

    • @TheEncryptedPartition ΒΏPorquΓ© no los dos?

    • the team actually purchased like a 20 thousand dollar camera gimble which is programmed to take shots like that, i thought it was pretty cool. I remember seeing a tiktok though about how marques thinks it ultimately wasn't worth it lol.

    • @TheEncryptedPartition how sad that people show appreciation to a well made, quality intro 😐

  • Man, the visual effects and videography are so freaking good. I love this channel.

  • I have a M1 MBP from $work and I’ve called it β€œbeta hardware”. It takes a while to get packer to build an x86 image (because servers are still x86 - this was improving, but beta hardware would). I’ve also run into path issues with things like terraformer etc. The chip is solid, but it’ll take another year or so for it not to get in my way.

  • The most impressive part of his videos is him not saying β€œUmm” once. For as much information as he’s giving, he doesn’t use filler words. That in itself is impressive. He’s one heck of a speaker. Edit: I typed this comment before he finished the video and said it like 35 seconds after. lol. Either way, still a dope, articulate, and engaging speaker.

  • As for the M3, I know that Apple had a working Ray-tracing engine in their A-Series lineup planned and tested. But thermals in a phone form factor bombed it out. But what if that Ray-Tracing Engine were to be in the M3. Moving to a 3nm process node may give them the real estate to implement it in the laptop thermal envelope.

  • Those intros are getting more and more fun each video. Like literally every intros and title screens are unique to the product it showcases. As if it was having fun and yet still feels professional. Kinda somewhat reminds me of the classic intros of you used to have.

    • @@DontReadMyProfilePicture.3 so you're the 3rd one doing this? ok, good luck sir.

    • @Random Dud3 It does, do you want the same bot comments on your videos?

    • @Jordan Pulciani You make no sense at all

    • @Joel Conolly It’s everywhere

    • They are so amazingly well done. This channel really could half ass it and probably be close to as successful as they are now. But they are always looking for ways to up their production quality. It makes these videos a joy to watch.

  • You and your team makes such great videos. Full of info while still be very entertaining. Thank you.

  • Love the honest and unbiased review from Marques!

  • Thank you for giving such a detailed review. I’m in the market for a laptop and this helps!

  • I really want one of these, but I have no real need to upgrade my 13" M1 (besides wanting a slightly larger screen). A 14/16" is very tempting though!

  • the opening shot looks amazing! you can tell they’re getting so much better at using that robot lol

    • What's the name of the song?

    • nice

    • Says the literal scammer using bots...

    • Do you get paid to promote these stupid links?

    • Wait a minute, I watched the whole thing assuming that was a render and then read this, that's an insane shot

  • Another great reviews as always, great job God bless πŸ™πŸΎ

  • 8:34 The new Mac mini interested me too. I won’t be getting one (I have the M1 Max Mac Studio and LOVE IT) but it’s interesting to see the M2 Pro in a Mac mini. That being said… they should’ve made the M2 Pro variety in Space Gray. That’s a way better look for the mini, and I’m disappointed the Mac Studio didn’t also get that darker color.

  • Be great to hear your thoughts on apple taking away the M1 pro / max laptops and now have their baseline pro laptop i.e the m2 pro Β£200 more expensive. Feels like a bit of a money grab. The M1 Pro is more than enough power for most pro apps not that I’m against an upgrade of power. Just a shame they’re essentially raising the price of a pro model by Β£200 for something no one was asking for. Will the m5 be Β£1k more expensive?

    • Is that a surprise? Everything apple does is a money, sucks they're an American company

  • Really excited for the Mac Mini review! In my opinion it is affordable and powerful, and it is the product which will push the Apple Silicon series up the market.

  • There's absolutely no one does this level of production on tech videos on ID-tv, mad props!!πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

    • @BTTRSWYT kk im the complete opposite ngl lol because i know like nothing about tech and am only 12

    • @Loafiverse ya know, that’s fair. I guess my opinion of him overall is based more on him as a reviewer and less based on the fancy packaging.

    • @Einfach Fredhaft Gaming if ltt do nothing impressive then mkbhd do nothing. All you fking guys care only about the intro production quality. Content? Biased like shit is fine for you guys. You guys don't care about content. Just see how ltt went to micron semiconductor production floor to show you how ssd is produced and you guys bash ltt for doing nothing and praise mkbhd just for the fking intro every time?

    • @BTTRSWYT were talking about he PRODUCTION quality, like the editing, at least i am, i know marques know more about tech and so do many others, but mr who’s the boss editing is way cooler in my opinion

    • @Loafiverse he’s a bit out of touch on a lot of things ngl. He’lol do videos about something like, say, unique mobility devices. It’s fairly obvious his research is incredibly shallow since like when he got the electric unicycle, he just got whatever the first one was from a popular company, Segway. Segways unicycle sucks. Dig even a little bit deeper and you’ll find a wealth if extended knowledge. And with his normal videos, they’re just so… shallow. I like ltt because they go a little more in depth regarding specs, same with marques to a slightly lesser extent.

  • Mad respect for Marquees. I dont fail to watch your reviews before buying these products

  • I really like how he pointed out to the people that "should" be waiting for the next M3 chips. You'll be waiting forever, but also miss out on some great deals on the older M1 that'll appear and you'll just waste your time and money by the time you're tired of waiting.

  • Great review(as usual)...I have the first gen 16" and I could use a bump ...considering it..

  • Man, congratulations on your superb production quality. You set the standard so high for the rest of tech ID-tvrs!

  • That robot intro ❀

    • Any plans to use it on your channel soon? lol

    • @Rodrigo Mirazo how i feel 20syl remix

    • What is the name of the song

    • song is crazy 😝

    • what’s the name of that song???!??!

  • I've been waiting soooo eagerly for this machine. I'm on a 2015 15" Macbook Pro, almost maxed out in spec. I have constantly maxed that machine out since new, but with the saga of the butterfly keyboards, removal of magsafe, etc etc... I had to wait so damn long for a replacement. Apple Silicon was an amazing swap, but I've also had to wait for the devs of the specific applications to support them. Now that is the case, I can look at finally get a workstation level machine in a laptop that can run Final Cut and astrophotography software.

  • I had a 2012 MBP that cost me $2,900 fully spec’d out in 2012… I just upgraded to a $1,099 M2 Air… insane how much faster it is, and how far it’s come.

  • Just a comment on the chart topping single core cinebench score. Saw 1700 for m2 max, but I recall getting around 1600 on my 5800x. I think the 13th gen Intel and 7000 series and chips hit over 2000. M2 max looking great nonetheless :)

  • I can't wait for the episode where MKB reviews his knew maxed out Mac Pro. I feel like Apple has already developed the machine and is just scrambling to get the matte black finish on the box perfect.

  • The production quality of this videos is the reason why I watch every single video from MKBHD, even the ones about stuff I don't care that much. It's amazing to watch the awesome work they all do with every single aspect of the video from start to finish.

    • Huh? He just sat in one spot and talked to the camera the whole video. While pasting in a couple clips.

  • I am just so excited for new tech, it's one of the few things that create hope for a better future

  • How does this dude get 3 million views within two days? This dude is the best tech reviewer on ID-tv. I wish we would review TVs more often though. As far as the new MacBook goes, it looks dope; but I wish they didn't get rid of the Touch Bar. I have 2020 16 inch MacBook Pro and I love the Touch Bar. Also, adding the notch on top was unnecessary.

  • Many thanks for making this video! Been reading and watching video reviews on the new Mac. I'm one of the ones who has an older mac (2012 here lol) but watching your video and Andres Vidoza's review have helped tremendously on my decision

  • Always enjoy watching your review videos. Some of the most solid informal content on ID-tv. Intro was sick btw. Really impressive.

  • The team at MKBHD is killing it again. The quality of the reviews keep going up and up.

  • Imagine if there would be dynamic island for the upcoming MacBooks. Its gonna be soo good!!

  • I decided to stop waiting for a M2 Pro when I wanted to upgrade from my 13 M1 MBP in November when all things combined (welcome offer on a new credit card, cash back on that card, it being on sale, being able to sell my original M1) it came out to just under 2 grand before selling my M1 MBP. Loved it since and since I'm not in the category that needs a super uber powerful laptop not looking to upgrade (I would have gone with the Air if they had a 15 inch with ProMotion because I'm sensitive to refresh rate)

  • I been watching this brother for a long time. He’s information is on point. Thanks bro.

  • Loved the intro, the transition was so smooth. Amazing work!

  • Man these intros feels from a different universe altogether. What production guys!

    • From this day hence forth you will be called "Captain Hyperbole"

  • I really wonder if the M2’s missing the 2 video encoders makes a difference

  • It would be great to start including the Blender benchmark when comparing benchmark results

  • You're the only ID-tvr I know who can pull off that look, MKB. Thanks for staying true to your word and props for wearing shower sandals to the studio.

  • Great video as always, love your work. I have to say I have always been a PC person, I mainly was into gaming in my spare time as I grew up. My brother was the sports ball guy, I was the tech gaming enthusiast. We had MACs growing up and PCs, I always gravitated towards the PCs. My new job had the option to go PC or Macbook. I do a lot of data processing and the PC was what I thought I would need to help flow better. there are still things I can do on a PC with MS suite better. I do have to say though, I have really come around to the Macbook. I have an older intel chip one, I believe a 2020. I really love the built in fingerprint scanner, I've really liked the touch bar for quick access on some stuff. I do dual boot windows with bootcamp if I need a windows application that isnt on Mac like Access. My only complaints about this system are 1 post ventura update, my mac will randomly shut down during sleep due to an error. 2 doing multiple monitors on this macbook was hell and I had to buy expensive special hardware for it (I need multi screens on my working set up) and I can only have two additional monitors even with the special hardware I have. The new upgrade sounds nice, but I am pretty sure you cannot dual boot windows on it. Also I would miss the touch bar, I dont use it all the time but man when I do I love it and kind of want one on my next PC laptop.

  • It's an honor to have grown up together following tech and watching your videos. They just keep getting better and better

    • Another marques ball gargler. Be sure to wipe your chin on the way out.

    • @A. A. Exactly

    • @SB Films like telling other people they need more honourable things in their life?

    • An honour? You need more honourable things to do pal

    • ya but he is doing all this cool shit. and you are not! how does that make you feel @Jacob Elias?

  • Funny how the first thing I’ve been looking forward to after seeing the M2 Macbook pros was this video! Says a lot about how MKBHD is a cultural reference.

  • MKBHD it's "the Icon" of tech review blogs since day one!

  • Man the intros never disappoint πŸ™Œ

  • Hey Marques, thanks for the review, but one thing I haven’t been able to understand yet is: how does the M2 Max compare to the M1 Ultra? Can you include that in a future video?

  • Man that intro plus transition!! Team at the studio never disappoints

    • Chill nerd

    • Her throne is now losing really fast

    • @Minecraft mojang fans It looks like there were 455 likes in just one second. It seems like these likes are from bots, as they all came at once.

    • @Wicked John Bots that are attracted to the catchy name

    • Definitely all likes are bots as well lol

  • I love my M1 Macbook Air, but as I get further into my degree, the code I will be writing will give this thing some struggles. I do some football pxp analytics but filtering out 10 years of data takes over a minute. Some more power would definitely be ideal, and the Air not having many ports (I use a second monitor) is tough too. I have a bit of wire Jenga going on between my console, monitor, chargers, etc. An HDMI and more than 2 USB-C ports would go a long way for me in a new MBP.

  • Holy shit that intro

  • Hey Bro, love yer work. Any thoughts on how hot that big boy M2Max is getting on the heftier workloads. I’ve held out for so long to upgrade my MBP and feeling like the time is right with these new configs. I just don’t want to experience the same heat problems I’ve had with my 2011 model (lap blisters, screen melting etc).

  • Great points, I'm sticking with my M1 16. BTW, I love when you and Max Tech fight

  • Random Question: How much ram & storgae would you recommend for 10 bit video and photo editing? Also m1 pro or max?

  • I'm over here rocking an M1 MacBook Air, and desperately looking for a reason to upgrade. But...I can't! Literally, this has been the best laptop I've ever owned. I'll probably have it another three years and it'll run dependably because Apple did SUCH a knockout job. They really hit the ground running!

  • That intro was awesome ! job well done Marques !

  • After watching that short on the making of the intro, I have a new found appreciation for this intro. So dope πŸ”₯

  • Great review thanks looking to pick up a really well priced M1 Max or entry entry level M2 Max for programming. I am getting sick of Windows 11 and the incredibly poor battery life of PC laptops. The only issue is I use Ubuntu a lot but think that Mac OSX and virtualization on the Mac will be sufficient.

  • The craziest part is that we haven't seen full software optimization of the new silicon yet. Once the software catches up, we are going to see even more dramatic improvements in performance and power consumption.

  • That intro segement looked and felt amazing! Any chance of doing a video about how your intro segements evolved among the years?

  • I am using M1 pro on 16 inch MacBook and the biggest thing which i love about the device is the battery life, it is just amazing .

  • Great video, love the intricated zoom in for looking for clues when it was done!!!

  • I can't wait for my work machine (maxed out i9 16") to come up for replacement in a few months, these things are so, so much faster and don't wind up cooking themselves under anything harder than web browsing. Imagine that statement 5 years ago! Looking forward to ditching an absolute top of the line i9 for a tiny ARM chip that's basically a bunch of really fancy smartphone processors glued together because the i9 is too slow, hot and power hungry. I don't love any company, and I certainly don't love Apple, but I couldn't see myself getting a non-Apple laptop at this point. Desktop is still Windows for gaming, but the M1/M2 is just objectively better for mobile devices in every way - unless you have to pay for your laptop, holy shit are they expensive

  • I LOVE my M1 Pro 14” and don’t see myself upgrading for a long time

  • Im still rocking my M1 16GB MBA, so I won't upgrade anytime soon, but man this M2 MBP is a monster! Nice work as always Marques!

    • It is definitely not worth the jump, not at least for 2 more years, but if youre a casual user, Apple supports their machines for a while and you could probably get away with 7 years

    • I have been using M1 16GB MBP, but I feel like I am gonna use this until there is a MBP that is mind-blowing monstrous.

  • That intro was smooth af, those transitions were absolutely beautiful

    • @Harish KR as fuck

    • He’s putting that robot to use πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

    • @Harish KR as f*ck

    • Af means

  • Literally went for my phone to shout out the intro. Mkbhd’s intros are master classes in themselves. Props sir!

  • The cinematography in the intro sequence is just perfect.

  • I know the GPU performance on these machines is amazing, but if you don't edit videos and they are not good for gaming, what use people will have for all that power ?

  • I'm so curious if M2 Max are capable of 3D animation and rendering it into a video. I have an underpowered Macbook Air from 2017 and I just use it for basic everyday tasks because it can't handle 3D animation, I have a more powerful Windows computer for 3D work. But I always loved the battery life of the Apple laptop, and how portable it is. If M2 Max can do 3D animation or 3D modeling, that would be amazing.

    • 3d animation is always shit on apple lmao, their gpu is not that good if you compare it to a mobile rtx3080ti if you use it for 3d work

  • My new MacBook M2 Pro has exceeded all my expectations. The speed and responsiveness are unmatched by any other laptop I've owned before. The powerful 10th-generation Intel Core processor makes multitasking a breeze. And did you know that the MacBook M2 Pro has a long battery life of up to 18 hours, allowing you to work all day without needing to plug it in.

  • Socks and sandals all day hahaha, nice! Also really cool review, as someone with an XPS 15 9570, the M-series MacBooks are getting more and more interesting

  • Intro was sick! Great job. I love it.

  • Would be interested to see the new Macbook Pro M2 Max stacked up against a current equivalent value windows laptop. The new apple silicon is so freaking good, would be interesting to see if intel/AMD laptops have made any gains.

  • It's crazy, Marques' videos are the only videos I watch full without skipping a bit. And when a video is out, I cannot wait to sit down and watch it ! Props to your hard work Marques! πŸ™

  • Great eye for the 2022 url! It's a small thing but it makes me appreciate your meticulousness in tech stuff more.

  • I’d have an M1 Pro 16” MacBook Pro already if it still had a Touch Bar. I don’t think the Touch Bar was an issue, but rather a huge feature that third parties neglected. The new MacBook Pros needed to have a physical function row AND a Touch Bar, which solves both issues.

  • That new intro is CLEAN AF ❀

  • snagged the base model M1 Macbook pro on sale for $1500 and while I feel like that was a killer deal, the tech consumer in me wants the newest and best thing lol. But I'm sure the base M1 pro will still cruise through music production and other basic needs.

  • That was a sick intro. This is literally why I watch these, for the sheer production quality.

    • 9th comment about the intro

    • nobody cares about intro . what are u a 5yr old kid ?

    • Check OptimumTech, arguably even better production value while still being much smaller channel

    • Agreed!

    • i’ɱ Κ‚Κ‹Ι“Ι“iΙ³Ι  ʈo Ι‘Ι³Ζ΄oΙ³e Ο‰Ι§o Κ‚Κ‹Ι“Κ‚ Ι“Ι‘Ζˆβ±ͺ Ι‘Ι³Ι— Ι­iβ±ͺeΚ‚ ʈɧiΚ‚ ƈoΙ±Ι±eɳʈ- ----..-. --.--

  • No one does tech reviews as good as MKBHD

  • Indeed, if you're going to wait for new tech, you will be waiting forever... Of course, everything depends on your situation. If you can afford to wait a couple of weeks/months. It might be worth it. But like you said: Technology improves constantly. That Mac Mini looks really interesting! 😎

  • I've needed a new computer since my mid 2014 Macbook Pro, and this might be one of the greatest upgrade with the tech differences. Still chugging along on an i7 4 core CPU with 16GB RAM. Last Mac before my current one had its GPU throttled I needed a replacement card after 3 years (cause I burned it out after some hefty After Effects renders lmao). With my current Mac being about 9 years old, I predict that I could probably get two decades out of an M2 Chip if it didn't lose compatibility with new OSes first.

  • The thing that still blows my mind about these laptops is the performance while running on battery power. Windows laptops simply can’t compare in that regard. Additionally, the battery life is outstanding. My laptop will last for several days where windows laptops will die after only a few hours of normal use.

  • You're right when you say it's not a 'quantum leap', because that would technically be the smallest possible iteration they could make, but a respectable speed bump seems spot on. As for the socks and sandals, awesome!!

    • A quantum leap is not describing a small step, but the overcoming of a prior unpassable barrier or threshold. A bump or leap stays in the same innovation level, while a quantum leap is teleporting out of it.

  • All Apple Silicon Macs so far are interesting in some way... but I'm still waiting for the Mac Pro (not necessarily to buy it though). TBF, socks and sandals look ok and are very comfortable.

  • Great explanation of upgrades.

  • What gave away that the "event" video was filmed months ago was the weather. I live a couple of miles away from Apple Park and it's been raining a lot. The skies in the video are fairly good, so probably wasn't filmed in the past month at least.

  • I have the M2 MacBook Air and it works flawless don’t see myself upgrading it any time soon. Btw the ending was funny
