This year, Apple plans to release a new entry-level MacBook Pro equipped with the new M2 SoC. We have some specifics about the upcoming unit thanks to Mark Gurman. He disclosed a few facts regarding the new laptop in his recent Bloomberg ‘Power On’ newsletter. In the blog, he noted that the device won’t feature the ProMotion display feature. This implies the device will not feature variable refresh rate capabilities.
What’s more, the entry-level variant of the MacBook Pro will also miss the Touch Bar following in the footsteps of its siblings. Mark further said that “It’ll be one of many Macs with the M2 SoC in the works,”, “including revisions of the 24-inch iMac, entry-level Mac mini, and updated MacBook Air.”

In 2022, Apple will introduce at least four M2-powered Macs, including the MacBook Air, a 24-inch iMac, a low-cost Mac Mini, and the MacBook Pro. Besides that, we don’t know specifics about the units. For instance, we don’t know the specific release date. However, reports suggest a fall release. We already know that Apple’s Spring event will see the release of iPhone SE 3 and iPad Air 5 with the new A15 Bionic chip.
Additionally, Apple might also release a low-cost external display for Mac customers with reduced brightness and contrast ratio. The monitor is projected to cost around half as much as a professional-grade Pro Display XDR. Plus, it will be slightly smaller. According to a report, LG is the company developing these displays in 24, 27, and 32-inch models. The common thing about all of these displays is they all feature a 120Hz refresh rate.
