Apple has announced the 2023 MacBook Pro models with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, as well as the new Mac mini with M2 and the all-new M2 Pro.

The faster 5nm-based M2 Pro and M2 Max chips bring even more power-efficient performance and battery life to pro users.

The new MacBook Pros—available in 14- and 16-inch models—can be configured with an M2 Pro or M2 Max, which claim to offer up to 20% faster CPU performance and 30% faster GPU performance over the previous generation M1 variants. Despite all this power, Apple promises the new MacBook Pro models can last up to 22 hours on a single charge. 

The new notebooks now also support WiFi 6E, which delivers twice the connection speeds of the previous generation. The HDMI port, meanwhile, now supports 8K up to 60Hz for the first time and 4K displays up to 240Hz. 

Here are the local prices of the new MacBook Pros:

  • 14″ M2 Pro 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU (16GB/512GB): P126,990
  • 14″ M2 Pro 12-core CPU, 19-core GPU (16GB/1TB): P156,000

Meanwhile, the new Mac mini can be outfitted with either an M2 or M2 Pro chip.

With the M2 chip, the Mac mini is even more powerful, capable, and affordable with a new starting price of $599. The new M2 Pro chip, on the other hand, delivers pro-level performance to the Mac mini.

The new Mac mini with M2-based chips delivers faster performance, even more unified memory, and advanced connectivity, including support for up to two displays on the M2 model, and up to three displays on the M2 Pro model.

They also come with Wi-Fi 6E, Thunderbolt 4 ports (two on the M2, four on the M2 Pro), and an HDMI 2.1 port (M2 Pro only).
