On June 17th, Apple will begin accepting preorders for its M2-equipped 13-inch MacBook Pro

Apple will also offer the M2 within the familiar frame of its still Touch Bar-equipped 13-inch Macbook Pro. Preorders for this model will begin this Friday, June 17th, and continue until the new MacBook Air goes on sale in July.

We have a comparison chart prepared for you so that you may evaluate the capabilities of this laptop in contrast to those of the new Air as well as the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops that were updated to offer M1 Max and M1 Ultra CPU options the previous year.

Apple advises active cooling, which the Air lacks, as a reason to choose this model for users who have extremely demanding workflows or who like intense 3D gaming on their Mac. This is a reason to buy this model because the Air does not have active cooling.

However, in comparison to the Air, the starting price of the 13-inch MacBook Pro is significantly higher at $1,299 for a model that includes an eight-core M2 CPU with 10 GPU cores, and 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

Because of this, it is difficult to recommend the 13-inch MacBook Pro because it does not include MagSafe, a 1080p webcam, or any other design improvements.

You have the option of selecting up to 24GB of RAM (which will cost you an additional $400) or up to a 2TB disc (which will cost you an additional $800), and Apple claims that it has a longer anticipated battery life as well as Wi-Fi 6.

On the other hand, the least expensive 14-inch MacBook Pro costs $1,999; hence, if the 'Pro' capabilities and design are essential, then this is the more cost-effective choice.
