    I have a love/hate relationship on the looks of the newer MacBooks

  2. James Company

    I personally think that the camera in the M2 improved a bit software wise…

    Thanks for the initial look! I held out way too long for a 15'/16" Mac Air (to replace my 13" 2010), finally gave up and got my 16" M1 MBP two years ago. Overpowered for what I use it for, but the screen/speakers are so cool; won't replace it with the M2, just use the M1 until the OS is no longer updated (and I'll probably be gone by then).
    Still fun to look at the new toys, however. Thanks!

    You really convey all the fun of receiving a brand-new Mac. Last year was my turn. I bought my first new Mac in 11 years. These Apple Silicon Macs are all great!

  5. Michael Latta

    I do notice the m2 webcam washes out your face. Your good camera shows more illumination and shadow texture.

  6. Bryan S

    That is one drool worthy laptop. And way more than I need in a portable device. But thanks for the review!

  7. Mr Hello

    can i charge my iphone with macbook pro 16 charger???

    Can’t wait to get my 14-inch M2 Pro. So glad I waited.

    I am still using M1 Pro…. Might wait for m3 pro next year instead . Since m2 pro really not much updates

  11. Crawdaddy

    Still using a 2017 air for what I do and it’s still super fast! If I had to upgrade I would definitely get the 16 inch because I like the bigger screen and the battery could be nice

    Do you have any idea why the sound from the internal mic was panned hard left? Did you do that, or was that just the way it was recorded?

    Stop using the MacBook camera for the rest of the video.

    You know why.

    "I'm an everyday dad who loves all sort of gear" your words. I used to enjoy you videos but I'm tired of this endless apple advertising. I have sadly decided to unsubscribe. This isn't criticism, you have a business to run But it's not for me now. Thank you for taking the time to make these , good luck in the future. Regards Richard

  15. Omar E

    I think you reviewing how it feels to tear the tape off is my favorite thing lol

  16. Adrian James

    Gary, I was so excited to see a clip of yours make it into the Apple presentation! I've been following you since your GoPro and camera review days. Your consistent hard work has paid off immensely. Congrats on current and future successes!

  17. Lambert J.

    How is it that you're so rich to afford all these Apple computers? You're definitely NOT an everyday dad. I'm an everyday dad with two kids, a wife, a mortgage, bills, food on the table, etc., and I can only afford to buy anything Apple once every few years, if that. You need to change your Youtube call sign to The Rich Dad cause you ain't us!!

  18. sir coy

    Im much more on small size like 13.4
    16 are to large and heavy to carry

  19. Stephen Shreds

    I’ve been eyeing the maxbook pro since the first release. My dad ran over my dell xps17 while in my backpack on accident 😅. It still works but things are slightly broken. I might just get the Mac mini instead.

  20. If I ever get another MacBook, I would go for the 14 inch one in all honesty. Cant wait to see how these new Mac Minis hold up too.

  21. It's annoying listening to this thru the MBP 16 microphone, sounds like listening thru a mono tube.(LEFT SIDE)

  22. Tom Pike

    If you are still using an intel powered MacBook Pro, now is the time to upgrade. The spec bump and overall success of Apple Silicon should make clear that it is not a failure. It’s a MASSIVE upgrade over the intel 16” MacBook Pro.

  23. Joseph Regallis

    As a Windows 10 user, I would like to see how you open a web browser on the MacBook since I watch a lot of YouTube videos! I also use Gmail for mail. My biggest fear is if I switch to Apple from Windows 10, can I feel comfortable with the new computer?

  24. Peter K.

    Thanks for awesome videos. I have just ordered one M2 MBP 16 inch. I very much look forward to using it.

  25. Ondřej Kříž

    I believe your discomfort with this chasis of macbook is mainly caused by size of your hands, I got mine 16" and never had this kind of problem, but truth is that the edges are sharp af.

  26. Jeush Parel

    Do you think the new base model macbook pro 14 is enough for major everyday premiere and after effects editing? or should I upgrade some features of it?
