M&Ms Everything Matte Black

Apple gave us an extra M in our M&Ms this year with their sweet announcement of the upgraded MacBook Pro and iMac models with M3 chip lineup. This unexpected treat piqued the interest of many, and it definitely did not disappoint.

Apple M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max Chip Lineup

The MacBook Pro lineup and new iMac are now super-supercharged thanks to the M3 family of chips which continues to set Apple apart from the rest with industry-leading performance and power efficiency.

With M3, you get faster performance with the ability to maximize battery life:

  • Up to 22 hours of video playback; up to 15 hours of web browsing
  • Peak performance cores that are up to 30% faster than those in the M1 family
  • Efficiency cores that are up to 50% faster than the efficiency cores in M1
  • Rendering speeds that are up to 2.5x faster than on the M1 family of chips
  • A Neural Engine that is 60% faster than the Neural Engine in the M1 family of chips

In short, M3 is Better. Faster. Stronger. If you’ve been holding onto your Intel-based iMac or MacBook Pro this update should be what you need to make the jump!

The new MacBook Pro with M3 chip lineup is perfect for college students and coders, to entrepreneurs and creators of any kind. While every level of MacBook Pro is a game changer, M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max blow performance and power efficiency out of the water.

With a faster Neural Engine, enhanced Liquid Retina XDR display, up to 22 hours of battery life, support for even more unified memory, multiple port versatility, and a new out-of-this-world Space Black finish for M3 Pro and M3 Max models, this is the Pro of Pros.

The fact that you can score a brand new MacBook Pro M3 starting at just $1,599 is a major plus in my book, but my most favorite part? That slick new Space Black color. But I’m a sucker for aesthetics.
