Winner: MacBook Pro (2021)

The MacBook Pro (2021) wins with 42 per cent. This is a challenge; how do you pick on Apple product from the last 10 years? Well, you did. While you could have chosen Apple's iPad Pro, AirPods Pro or iPhone SE, you instead opted for the excellent MacBook Pro (2021). 

It was actually a very close contest, with the Apple Watch 4 only losing out by 2 per cent of the vote. Take a look at our Apple Watch vs Garmin feature to see why this device is so loved.

But MacBook Pro (2021) did win, so why? Well, the first MacBook Pro is the best laptop around for creatives, and has always been the go-to series for designers and artists looking for power and speed. The 2021 model took everything we loved and added the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips (or choose which you want). This mode also re-introduced MagSafe and particularly the function keys; this was Apple finally listening to users and creating the MacBook Pro everyone wanted.

Read our MacBook Pro (2021) review for the full spec and details on why this laptop deserves the accolade of Apple Product of the Decade. You may also be wondering why this model was voted for rather than the newer M2 version. Read our MacBook Pro M2 review to find out.

It's also reassuring that you needn't pay the high cost for the newest MacBook Pro to get the best laptop, see our best MacBook buying guide for all the latest deals on the winning 2021 model and more.
