The best MacBook you can buy

It can be hard to choose the best MacBook for your needs. Apple has two broad ranges, the Pros and the Airs, but also different sizes and configurations. And even between the Pros and the Airs, which is the best MacBook isn't always clear. 

To choose the best MacBook for you, you'll need to consider how much power you need, what you'll be using your laptop for and whether you prioritise portability or a larger screen. When it comes to the silicon, all of the MacBooks now sold by Apple come with the company's own M chips, from the M1 in the 2020 MacBook Air and 13in MacBook Pro, to the M1 Pro and M1 Max in the 2021 MacBook Pros and the M2 in the 2022 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13.
