Apple has nixed all of the Intel MacBook Pro models from its MacBook Pro lineup, with the prior-generation Intel i7 and i9 machines now discontinued.


All of Apple's MacBook Pro models now feature M-series chips as the company continues to phase out Intel chips. That means Apple's entire portable notebook lineup (the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro) is Intel-free and running Apple-designed chips.

Apple's MacBook Pro lineup is as follows:
  • M1 13-inch MacBook Pro - $1299
  • M1 Pro 14-inch MacBook Pro with 8-core CPU - $1999
  • M1 Pro 14-inch MacBook Pro with 10-core CPU - $2499
  • M1 Pro 16-inch MacBook Pro - $2499
  • M1 Max 16-inch MacBook Pro - $3499
Intel chips continue to be available in desktop machines that include the Mac mini, iMac, and Mac Pro, but upgrades for all of those devices are in the works and expected next year.

On stage today, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that we're one year into the two-year transition from Intel chips to Apple silicon, so we can expect most of the rest of the Mac lineup to get updated in 2022.

The new M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pro models can be pre-ordered from the Apple Store starting today and are set to ship out next week.

They look fantastic, almost like a greatest hits of the last couple of years of Apple tech flung into a shiny box. Slightly disappointed they didn’t change the design a bit more (especially after the into made it look like they had…), but I think they’ve knocked it out if the park with these machines.

How long before reviewers have their hands on one? I want to see what this notch looks like up close, and if there are OS options to lower the Menubar below it so I won't "virtually" see it - similar to how it looks when apps are in full screen..

It was a good move in 2005. We've had incredible machines throughout the years, and it sure helped the Mac platform to mature. Just a pity they couldn't keep up with the expectations and their promises. It's incredible how far Apple has come with chip development. These new chips are not a little bit better than their predecessors. They're miles ahead. In fact, they are so far ahead you might wonder what both AMD, Intel, and Nvidia have been doing for the last years.
