My current MBP is a Mid 2015 and I really need an upgrade, it's been a great laptop but it really just can't keep up anymore. I was looking at a 14" M2 Pro with just the ram upgraded (I'm a full time photographer/seldom any video and I use an MS M1 Ultra for the long editing days) but B&H has a 16" M1 Max base model 32GB/1Tb on sale for the next 10 hours for $2100. I haven't used any of the new Apple Silicon MBP's but would anyone whose used the M1 Max and/or the M2/M3 see a real world value (time & workflow) in spending more for an M2/M3 for the couple extra CPU/GPU cores? I keep my laptops as long as possible and I know that its only 2 years old but it seems like Apple hardware updates are coming quicker than ever. Anyways just looking for some opinions from real world users not the never-ending YouTube videos on benchmarks stats & graphs. Thanks in advance because the deal ends in less than 10 hours in the B&H Deal Zone so I need to decide soon.
