Although both laptops have a p camera, Apple's M1 computers also have the company's image signal processor inside. The selfie taken on the M1 MacBook Pro's webcam had much better lighting, bolder color, and noticeably less grain than the one captured on the Intel MacBook Pro. Another perk that comes with M1-powered Macs is that iPhone apps can run directly on these laptops since they share a common architecture.
That's not enough to significantly influence your buying decision, especially since Macs don't have the touchscreen support that bodes nicely with mobile apps, but it's still worth considering. The M1 MacBook Pro's speedy performance and long battery life alone make it the best choice for most people. In a sense, Apple is making your decision for you, because the MacBook Pro 13 with Apple M1 is the new entry-level model. True professionals, especially more stationary ones, are likely the exception.
If you need the most storage, ports, and memory you can get in an Apple laptop, your best bet is an Intel MacBook Pro. Similarly, if having the certainty that Intel's platform offers when it comes to app compatibility is important, the M1 MacBook Pro also isn't for you. It's also worth noting that Apple is expected to release two new MacBook Pros in inch and inch sizes sometime this year that run on a new version of its chip, according to Bloomberg.
If your current laptop is still working well, it might be worth waiting until the next version comes out. Although there are some circumstances in which the Intel-based models are a better choice, the big gains Apple's M1 chip brings in performance and battery life make it the best option for most people.
The new laptops provide a first glimpse at what the Mac experience can be like when Apple has complete control over the enabling technologies that power it, and it's impressive so far. Sign up for Insider Reviews' weekly newsletter for more buying advice and great deals.

MacBook Pro 13 Apple M1 vs. Apple's M1 processor brings fast performance, long battery life, and a better camera to the inch MacBook Pro. But the Intel-powered MacBook Pro still comes with more options for storage, ports, and memory.
We find it works a lot better than many fingerprint scanners included in Windows 10 laptops. It never failed to read a fingerprint correctly in our time using it. On the other side of the keyboard, the Escape key is now once again a separate button rather than included in the Touch Bar , again making it easier to find, and the arrow keys are in an inverted-T arrangement now, like on many laptop keyboards, which is a much more intuitive layout.
Crucially, for creative professionals, it supports the P3 wide color gamut, offering excellent color reproduction. So, not a huge amount of change in the design of the new MacBook Pro inch, but where Apple has made tweaks, they are noticeable and welcome. One thing that we do wish Apple changed with the design, however, is the thick bezels around the screen.
This leaves the new MacBook Pro inch feeling pretty outdated, especially compared to Windows 10 laptops like the Dell XPS 13, which have ultra-thin bezels that allow the device to be smaller without impacting screen size. Apple has shown with the inch MacBook Pro that it can slim down the bezels, which allows it to include a bigger screen without the overall laptop being too much larger than the inch model.
We hope Apple tweaks the inch model in a similar way in the future - perhaps for a inch MacBook Pro? We've now spent enough time with the MacBook Pro inch, to run our benchmark tests and test out its day-to-day performance, and we remain impressed with the laptop. We also used the Chrome web browser with loads of tabs open, which is a notorious hog when it comes to memory, and the MacBook Pro inch continued to perform admirably.
Not only does the new 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor offer better compute performance than its predecessor, but it also has improved integrated graphics as well. Again, we should point out that the improved graphical performance on the Intel Iris Plus Graphics is only available on the MacBook Pro inch models with 10th generation processors.
Battery life has been an area where MacBooks have traditionally fared a lot better than their Windows 10 competitors, and the model of the MacBook Pro inch doesn't disappoint. It has a 58 watt-hour battery and a slightly larger This should offer 10 hours of battery life, which is around the same that the previous model promised.
In our battery life benchmark test, which involved playing a looped p video, the battery lasted a respectable eight and a half hours. For a workstation laptop, that's certainly impressive, and means unless you do some very intensive tasks, like video editing and rendering, the new MacBook Pro inch should last around an entire work day without needing a charge. It's also excellent at holding its battery life as well. That means you can close the lid, leave it a few days and the laptop will still have battery left.
That's often not the case with Windows 10 laptops, which seem to bleed battery life even when not in use. You want a powerful and small MacBook The MacBook Pro inch really benefits from the improved internals, and it means this version is a great choice if you're looking for a MacBook that can handle multitasking well. You didn't like previous MacBook keyboards We really can't understate how much of an improvement the new keyboard in the MacBook Pro inch is.
If you were put off with the older keyboards, the new one will definitely win you over. You want excellent battery life Normally powerful laptops have to make do with short battery lives, but the MacBook Pro inch manages to balance performance with a battery life that can last the whole work day.
You want a graphical powerhouse While the inch MacBook Pro is no slouch in the performance department, it still relies on integrated graphics, which means it's not great at seriously intensive graphical tasks. You don't like Apple's designs The new inch MacBook Pro doesn't change much when it comes to its design, and while fans of Apple's aesthetics will be happy, it means there's nothing to win over people who have been left cold by the look of previous MacBooks.
