However there is a distinction between fashions with this characteristic that Apple did not actually point out. Whereas each fashions might be charged over Thunderbolt or MagSafe, solely the 14-inch MacBook Professional can quick cost over the USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports in addition to ‌MagSafe‌.

Against this, the 16-inch MacBook Professional is proscribed to quick charging over the ‌MagSafe‌ port. The reason being probably right down to the truth that the Thunderbolt 4 ports are able to charging at a most of 100W, and the 16-inch MacBook Professional makes use of a 140W energy adapter, so the identical quick charging velocity cannot be claimed. In the meantime, the 14-inch mannequin makes use of a 67W energy adapter for the 8-core machine and a 96W energy adapter for the 10-core machine, so it does not attain the utmost TB4 energy supply.

This limitation on the 16-inch MacBook Professional is unlikely to be a giant deal for many customers, because the ‌MagSafe‌ 3 port is made solely for charging and will not be engaged for another cause. That mentioned, this distinction between the 2 appears value highlighting given the varied cable/dock setups potential house owners could possibly be envisioning for his or her workflow.

The brand new MacBook Professional fashions might be ordered now, with pricing beginning at $1,999 for the 14-inch mannequin and at $2,499 for the 16-inch mannequin. The notebooks will start arriving to prospects and launch in shops on Tuesday, October 26.
