Before the Apple Silicon transition, it was always the case the biggest MacBook Pro was the most powerful. That’s no longer the case. These days, 14″ MacBook Pro can be specced out to be just as powerful as its bigger sibling.
Without considering the implications of this, I purchased the 16″ MacBook Pro last year — the biggest one available — out of sheer habit.
Next time, I’m getting the 14″. I want as much power as I can get, but when I’m portable, I want as much portability as possible.
