New 16-Inch MacBook Pro is Thicker and Heavier Than Previous Generation
Apple today announced completely redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that in the case of the 16-inch model is unsurprisingly thicker and heavier than the previous generation.
Apple announced a new 14-inch model that replaced the high-end Intel 13-inch MacBook Pros. Given the larger screen, it's not fair to compare the two models. What is fair game, however, is to take a look at the new 16-inch MacBook Pro compared to the previous generation. We've put side by side the weight, height, and depth differences for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro compared to the previous generation.
2021 16-inch MacBook Pro

If you need thin and light Apple has you covered with the Air.
That notch is HIDEOUS, but I'm glad they've backtracked on just about everything they've done to the MBP for the past 8 years. A worthy upgrade to my workhorse machine.
