Watch the MacBook Pro and Mac mini 2023 announcement video
Apple today dropped new hardware with the M2 Pro and M2 Max 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro models, as well as the M2/M2 Pro Mac Mini. While previous Mac releases only merited a press release, Apple actually released a 19-minute announcement video this time that gives us a detailed look at the latest Mac members.
The video starts with the introduction of the new Mac Mini, which retains the same design as its predecessor, but gets the new M2 and M2 Pro chipset options, as well as more memory and storage options.
