Battery Life

Apple claims that the battery life of ‘wireless web’ usage is going to be 17 hours and only playing Apple TV for 20 hours straight. The brightness remains at the halfway mark for both.

Hardware and Software

The external design is very similar to the previous year’s version of the MacBook 13-inch. Even after this, it is no wonder that it gives a sturdy and attractive look. It is 14 Kg with a measurement of 1.56-30.41-21.24 cm. The Keyboard is also well-designed with a perfectly spaced set of keys. 

A fingerprint scanner is there to manage your privacy too. And apart from the power key, all others have an adjustable backlight. It also has cooling fans built into its structure internally.

Apple is moving ahead of all other companies at a remarkable speed. For the MacBook 13-inch Pro, the M2 chip comes with a 10-core GPU, a 16-core Neural Engine, an 8-core CPU, four efficiency cores, and four performance cores. They claim that their CPU is 18% faster, their performance has increased by 35%, and 100GB/s memory bandwidth is 50% better than M1. The MacBook is giving a tough competition to Intel.

Is it worth buying?

Yes, of course you should buy this, if you need continuous and effective performance, as the cooling fans make it possible for you. Also, the looks and the design is top-notch, which everyone is fond of. The performance is also improved due to the advancement in chip generation, so if you need to do a lot of advanced work, you can go for it.
