If you want the most out of your MacBook Pro, you should skip the base model M2

There are several 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro models available right now, including the base model with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. If you plan on buying it, you probably shouldn't.

The M2 model of the M1 was shown to have a slow SSD while the M2 model saw a 50 percent slower SSD read speed as well as a 30 percent slower SSD write speed earlier this week according to videos from Max Tech and Created Tech.

Due to this move, which is probably cost-saving, there can be no parallel reading and writing across two chips. There is only one channel through which everything passes, effectively slowing down the otherwise high-speed M2.

This laptop is actually slower than the more expensive 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro with 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM, as Max Tech found. Those benefits are partially due to the higher-specced device using two 256GB NAND chips instead of one, enabling parallel processing across both chips

A unified memory system is used by Apple's Arm-based computer chips. For all jobs to be done, GPUs and CPUs must use the same memory. Other M1 and M2 devices would benefit from 8GB of memory, but you won't notice any significant performance degradation.

M1 and M2 Macs have fast SSDs that can be used as memory in an emergency by the processor if needed, which is why they can get away with 8GB of memory.

Using the 8GB / 256GB MacBook Pro, Max Tech was able to export 50 42-megapixel images in two minutes. One minute and seven seconds were needed for the 16GB / 512GB MacBook Pro. You can almost double the speed by just using more RAM and faster storage.

As it stands, the M2 MacBook Pro feels like a laptop that has yet to find its audience. In the wake of the refreshed, better specced, and cheaper M2 MacBook Air arriving weeks from now, it's been hard to see why anyone would purchase the M2 MacBook Pro.

You should save up the extra cash and get $1,499's 512GB and 16GB version of the M2 MacBook Pro if you really need the battery life promise. I'd be curious to know how many people opt for this horrible base model when there is the perfectly good $1,499 model available.

In the past, base models have sold best, so the $1,299 base model is likely to get the most attention from people who crave this weird machine despite its stunted performance.
