Apple MacBook Pro - 16” (5th Gen)
Size comparison diagram of the Apple MacBook Pro - 16” (5th Gen) compared to other Apple Macbook models

The first thing you will notice in the Apple MacBook Pro 16” (5th Gen) is the thicker and squarer design compared to previous models and the largest of its generation of Apple Macbooks. It entered the market in late 2021, replacing the PowerBook or an upgrade to the previous generation with Liquid Retina RDX displays, Wi-Fi 6, Thunderbolt ports, and support for Dolby Atmos audio. What is unique about this laptop is the addition of a new and powerful Apple M1 Pro or M1 Max chips under its hoods. Other features which were only seen in earlier models like function keys, HDMI port, SD card reader, better memory, and MagSafe port were also re-introduced.

The Apple MacBook Pro 16” (5th Gen) has a height of .66” (1.68 cm), width of 14” (35.57 cm), depth of 9.77” (24.81 cm), and weighs either 4.63 or 4.85 lb (2.1, 2.2 kg). The screen of the Apple MacBook Pro 16” (5th Gen) is 16.2” (41.1 cm) diagonal and has a resolution of 3456 x 2234 px at 254 ppi.

Apple MacBook Air (4th Gen)
Scaled size comparison drawings of the Apple MacBook Air (4th Gen) in relation to related Apple Macbooks

The Apple MacBook Air (4th Gen) was released in 2021 as an upgrade for the third generation MacBook Air. It lacks an optical disk drive. This gives it a flat design that takes after that of MacBook Pro notebooks. Other things that make this laptop attractive include the large Liquid Retina display, MagSafe 3 port, FaceTime camera, full height function keys, support for Magic Keyboard, better storage capacity, and a variety of finishes. Where it beats previous models is its long battery life, exceptional performance, and quiet fanless design. The last is made possible because it uses the new M1 chipset.

The Apple MacBook Air (4th Gen) has a height of .44” (1.13 cm), width of 11.97” (30.41 cm), depth of 8.46” (21.5 cm), and weighs 2.73 lb (1.24 kg). The screen of the Apple MacBook Air (4th Gen) is 13.6” (34.5 cm) diagonal and has a resolution of 2560 x 1664 px at 224 ppi.
