How Powerful Is the New M2 Max MacBook Pro?

The MacBook Pro has long been the workhorse of choice for many creatives, able to handle the needs of even the most demanding photo and video projects. Apple's transition to their own silicon has revitalized the lineup with improved performance and battery life. The latest model features the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, and this great video review takes a look at what you can expect from it.
