First M2 MacBook Pro Orders Arriving to Customers in New Zealand and Australia

It's officially Friday, June 24 in New Zealand and Australia, which means it's the launch day for the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro. Customers in New Zealand and Australia are always the first to get their hands on new devices due to time zone differences, and the ‌M2‌ Macs are no exception.

‌M2‌ MacBook Pro models are beginning to arrive to customers who pre-ordered the machine last Friday, and new MacBook Pro owners will likely soon be sharing their experiences with the updated ‌M2‌ chip on the MacRumors forums, Twitter, and other social networks.

New Zealand does not have Apple Stores, so customers in Australia will be the first to be able to pick up an ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro. Stock in Australia will give us an idea of what we might be able to expect from other stores worldwide. A spot check shows the stock ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro models available for purchase at multiple stores in Australia, but custom configurations with upgraded unified memory and SSDs will not likely be available in stores.

Following New Zealand and Australia, sales of the MacBook Pro will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and then North America.

The 13-inch ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro features the same design as the prior-generation model, and the ‌M2‌ chip is the only upgrade. The ‌M2‌ chip features the same 8-core CPU as the M1, but with an upgraded nine or 10-core GPU.

Are you getting a new ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro today? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Why would you ever order this machine on day 1? The M2 MBA is a much better value, or even the M1 Pro base config 14-inch MacBook Pro....

Please explain what is so compelling about this product, other than the fact that it includes the M2 chip and can be shipped sooner than the M2 MBA.

Thanks,
Tried and true design. Touch Bar for those who needs it. Has a fan. No notch. Sturdier than MacBook Air.

These machines exist for a reason, however niche it might be. Heck, Apple might refresh it with M3 next year or so. Who knows.

Wow, people actually ordered this garbage except for benchmark testing?
If your laptop is on it’s last legs and you want and use the Touch Bar, it’s easy to choose this 13” MacBook (Pro).

Some people want active cooling. Some people want a Touch Bar. Some people want a MacBook with both aforementioned features that doesn’t have an intel chip and good battery life. Some people don’t care if it’s the old dusty design from 2016. Doesn’t make a ton of sense to me but some people will be happy with it.

Two more GPU cores and a fan for significant sustained performance increase over the M2 Air. Has a touch bar and no notch.

People are able to like those above things. It's amazing how some here are unable to put themselves in someone else's shoes.
