Full-fledged tests of the new MacBook Pro based on the SoC M2 Pro and M2 Max have appeared on the Web. We have already seen what new platforms are capable of in synthetic benchmarks, now it’s time to understand what they are like in real tasks.
As you can see, the new platforms are almost always and everywhere faster than the previous ones, but there are applications where the difference is small or where the M2 Max is not particularly faster than the M2 Pro. Actually, as always, a modern processor in a PC must be chosen for specific tasks. At a minimum, we can say for sure that there is often no huge difference between the M2 Pro and M1 Pro.
As for autonomy, here, unfortunately, a miracle did not happen. The 14-inch MacBook Pro on the M2 Pro performs the same as on the M1 Pro, while the M2 Max version is about an hour slower. However, in absolute terms, these are still very, very good results.
Recall that today we already wrote that the new MacBook Pro received SSDs that have a lower read speed than drives in previous generation models.

Sales of Xiaomi Mi Notebook 12.4 have started in China – for a device running Windows 11 they ask for only $ 425. As you can see from the name, Xiaomi refers to the product as a laptop, but in fact it is still a tablet with a dockable keyboard.

Large OLED screen, “Processor” processor, total 4 GB of RAM and Windows. Asus Vivobook 13 Slate OLED hybrid laptop unveiled
Asus has unveiled a new model of its Windows tablet called the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3304). The company itself calls the device a laptop, but that’s just the way it is now.
As the name implies, the novelty is equipped with a 13-inch OLED screen, which distinguishes the device from other similar solutions on the market. The screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels. Of course, it is touch, but it also supports the work with the stylus.
In general, the new model differs little from the old one, but the platform has changed. It is based on the latest CPUs Intel Core i3-N300 or Processor N200. Curiously, Asus is calling the second Pentium N200 even though Intel dropped the Pentium and Celeron brands this generation.
The PC is also equipped with 4 or 8 GB of RAM, UFS 2.1 flash memory of 128 or 256 GB or SSD up to 512 GB, depending on the version. There are Wi-Fi 6 adapters, Bluetooth 5.2, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, a microSD slot, four speakers and a 50Wh battery with support for 65W charging. Dimensions are 310 x 190 x 8.95 mm with a weight of 800 g. Together with the connected keyboard, the PC already weighs 1.3 kg.
Of the rest, protection according to the MIL-STD-810G standard can be noted.
There is no price data yet, but the first model once started at $600.
