The Most Expensive M2 Max MacBook Pro Now Costs $6,499 — Here Are The Reasons Why

We’re back again.

This morning, Apple introduced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. A late-breaking rumor suggested that something would be released today, but it was unclear which of Apple’s products would receive the slightly less formal update.

The only thing that piques our interest more than the new chips is how Apple would price them. The good news is that Apple largely maintained pricing for the MacBook Pro 14-inch with M2 Pro, which begins at $1,999 for 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, a 14-inch Retina XDR display, with three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, a headphone jack, and a MagSafe 3 port that I am not yet sold on.

The base 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro is also available for $2,499, which includes 16GB of RAM, a 512GB solid-state drive, three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, a headphone jack, and a MagSafe 3 port.

However, if you are a certain level of the content creator, you may need more, and Apple has you covered, albeit at a steep price.

More strength, more money

As a performance-obsessed content creator, I am aware that we require cutting-edge performance to create, animate, and render content as quickly as possible. Apple now offers up to 96GB of RAM on its M2 Max laptops of the latest generation. Apple has also accounted for the fact that creators will always desire the most powerful system money can buy, even though this desire comes at a premium price.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Max, 96GB of RAM, and an 8TB SSD will set you back a staggering $6,299, which is more than I paid for my first vehicle.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro M2 Max with 96GB of RAM and an 8TB SSD costs $6,499, which is not a bad price for two more inches of display and improved thermal performance. It’s only a $400 increase compared to the previous 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max, and the 96GB of RAM is what you’re paying more for. The maximum storage capacity of the 2021 16-inch MacBook Pro was a meager 64GB, barely enough to keep a few Chrome tabs open; thankfully, we no longer face this limitation.

With the enhanced performance of the M2 Pro and M2 Max and the availability of 96GB of RAM, the M2 Pro and M2 Max’s $6,499 price tag is comparable to that of some of the best workstations laptops. The question for most, however, is whether or not you need that much power and whether you can afford it.
