I am going to focus on the battery sizes in these new models, and compare them to the M1 MacBooks.
Without further ado, lets get to it.
MacBook Pro 14 Inch Battery
The new MacBook Pro 14 inch has a 70Wh (watt-hour) lithium-polymer battery.
Apple advertises that this should last up to 11 hours when browsing the web, and up to 17 hours of movie playback when watching shows on the Apple TV app.
MacBook Pro 16 Inch Battery
The new MacBook 16 inch has a 100Wh (watt-hour) lithium-polymer battery.
Apple advertises that this should last up to 14 hours when browsing the web, and up to 21 hours of movie playback when watching shows on the Apple TV app.
This is how the M1 MacBooks rank in terms of battery sizes:
MacBook Air M1 – 49.9Wh
MacBook Pro M1 – 58.2Wh
MacBook Pro 14 Inch M1 Pro/Max – 70Wh
Macbook Pro 16 Inch M1 Pro/Max – 100Wh
Comparison with the 2020 M1 MacBooks
The M1 MacBook Air has a 49.9Wh battery, and the M1 MacBook Pro has a 58.2Wh battery.
That means that both the 14 and the 16 inch models have larger batteries than the 2020 M1 notebooks. That’s no surprise, since they have larger chassis and space for larger batteries.
Comparison with Windows laptops
Here are a couple of popular Windows laptops and the battery sizes in them:
MSI Bravo 15 – 51Wh
HP Omen 15z – 70.91Wh
Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 – 90Wh
