Apple today announced completely redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that in the case of the 16-inch model is unsurprisingly thicker and heavier than the previous generation.

Apple announced a new 14-inch model that replaced the high-end Intel 13-inch MacBook Pros. Given the larger screen, it's not fair to compare the two models. What is fair game, however, is to take a look at the new 16-inch MacBook Pro compared to the previous generation. We've put side by side the weight, height, and depth differences for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro compared to the previous generation.

2021 16-inch MacBook Pro
  • Weight: 4.7 pounds (2.1 kg)
  • Height: 0.66 inches (1.68 cm)
  • Depth: 9.77 inches (24.81 cm)
  • Width: 14.01 inches (35.37 cm)


2019 16-inch MacBook Pro
  • Weight: 4.3 pounds (2.0 kg)
  • Height: 0.64 inches (1.62 cm)
  • Depth: 9.68 inches (24.59 cm)
  • Width: 14.09 inches (35.79 cm)

As you can see from above, the new 16-inch MacBook Pro is nearly 9% heavier than the previous generation and is also slightly thicker. The new MacBook Pros feature a redesigned designed body, that is not also thicker and heavier, but also includes more I/O ports and new features. Learn more about these new MacBook Pros here.

Take the money now Apple!

That notch is HIDEOUS, but I'm glad they've backtracked on just about everything they've done to the MBP for the past 8 years. A worthy upgrade to my workhorse machine.

The notch really isn't "HIDEOUS" though is it - you've just moved your menu bar up a bit and now you've got a bigger screen, you wont' even notice it, it makes use of previously wasted space.

The rest of the machine is hideous looking but hey, functional I guess, if you want those horrible legacy ports.
