With the M3 MacBook Pro, Apple's line up finally makes sense

While Apple silicon has been a game changer for the Mac line up, it hasn't been easy to know which MacBook to recommend to which user in recent years. With the M2 chip hitting the MacBook Air before the Pro, we found ourselves in the strange position of having a less powerful laptop with a newer chip – but with the advent of the new M3 MacBook Pro, everything suddenly makes sense.

The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro is the first Apple laptop to feature the brand new M3 chip (along with the M3 Pro and M3 Max), which means for the first time, the Pro has beaten the Air. And with the M3 providing next-level speed and performance, it seems we finally have an obvious choice for creatives (it's a shoo-in for our best laptop for video editing roundup, but if you don't need this much power, the 2022 M2 MacBook Air is at a record low price right now).
