MacBook Pro 14 vs 16 – it's the battle of the two most powerful laptops Apple's yet produced. That's right, even with the new M2-toting MacBook Pro 13 launched in 2022, the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 remain the most powerful devices, thanks to their powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.

So, what is the difference between the two laptops? Both the MacBook Pro 14-inch and the MacBook Pro 16-inch were launched at the same time, in October 2021, and both came with a choice of M1 Pro or M1 Max chips. These were super-powered versions of the M1 chip that Apple debuted in the MacBook Pro 13-inch in 2020, and offered incredible performance, especially for creative tasks that required a lot of processing power and graphical grunt.
