There’s been a lot of laptops launched this year – no doubt many are fantastic. But one stood above them all.

Apple’s new MacBook Pro range was a step above because of the immense performance available when running on battery power.

Apple’s new M1 processors and the new M1 Pro and M1 Max offer proper pro level performance, and with so many pro apps now updated to work directly with the M1 the benefits are far improved on even a short few months ago.

Bringing back the SD card slot along with much more including MagSafe charging is just the cherry on top.

Easy choice – the Apple MacBook Pro – EFTM Best award for Best Laptop.
