The new MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and Max chips are here, and they're available to buy. These are some of Apple's most powerful laptops to date, so if you're looking for a mobile powerhouse, then it looks like these are the MacBooks to grab.
Revealed in a press release on January 17, the MacBooks are now heading out to customers. They retain the same design as the MacBooks from 2021, with the same aluminum shells and sumptuous screens that made us all swoon when they first arrived. Under the hood, the new MacBooks are a whole lot more powerful, with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips powering things along. Much like the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips that came with the previous redesign, these are beefed up versions of the M2 chip that came last year.
There's other new stuff as well, like the new WiFi chip and the updated HDMI port that now supports 8K 60Hz. They're out now, too - and we've found all the best places to buy them.
Where to preorder the M2 MacBook Pro 14 and 16-inch
B&H Photo has the MacBook Pro models up for order, and you'll be able to choose from all the options you could want. There's also expedited shipping here, so you'll get your new MacBook that little but quicker.
As always, you can go straight to the source and order a MacBook Pro from Apple. You'll be able to really deck your machine out here, with more RAM options than you can shake a stick at and oodles of storage configurations. You can even choose where in the world you want your keyboard layout to come from.
Best Buy has orders up for the new MacBook Pro, and you can spec up your machine too. All the options are there, although it looks like shipping dates will change slightly if you order a beefier machine.
Amazon has the new MacBook Pro models up for order, although you can't choose any options yet. That leaves you with the base model M2 Pro chip and 16GB of RAM. That's still a powerful machine, but if you want something a little beefier it looks like you'll have to wait to see it at Amazon.
Are the new Macbook Pros out of stock?
The MacBook Pro 14 and 16-inch M2 are not out of stock at the moment. If you order one of the base configurations, the laptop will be delivered two days from order date if you go with Apple.
If you add more specs to your new laptop, then the delivery date might slip a little to mid-February. For example, if you opt for the 32GB memory option on the lowest spec 14-inch model, then your machine will ship out between February 8-10.
