The new MacBook Pro has a Liquid Retina XDR display that features the mini-LED technology used in iPad Pros. Apple says it will deliver up to 1,000 nits of sustained, full-screen brightness, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The 13-inch Macbook Pro only hits 500 nits of brightness.
In layman’s terms, it’s going to be a lot brighter and crisper than the Retina display on last year’s Mac.
If you’re looking for a new Mac or are considering an upgrade, and you have the budget, the 14-inch MacBook Pro is a powerful laptop. You’re getting a better computer in every category.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro will still be a worthwhile purchase at a lower price point, but the price tag is the only factor that makes it a more attractive choice.
