"And today, the MacBook Pro gets even better. With faster performance, better connectivity, and the longest battery life ever in a Mac, paired with the best display in a laptop, it's unlike any other."

In particular, the new MacBook Pro models with M2 Max should once again push the boundaries of what is possible.
