Solid reviews for new M3 MacBook Pros and iMac
Eighteen months ago, long-time Mac expert Jason Snell got a Mac Studio equipped with the most powerful Apple silicon at the time — the M1 Max.
Snell figured the speedy desktop machine would last him a while.
He was wrong.
The Mac Studio is completely blown out of the water by a new MacBook Pro equipped with the M3 Max, which Snell tested for a review.
It’s such a big jump, he’s even starting to question how often he should be upgrading his machines.
“The M3 Max is so much faster that it’s making even me question my upgrade cycle,” he writes.
Also in today’s newsletter:
If you’ve been holding out for a bigger M3 iMac — say, one with a 27-inch screen — don’t hold your breath.

Did you get a new iPhone 15 Pro and miss the physical mute switch?
There’s a dongle for that 🤣😉

One more thing ...
The great people are self-managing. They don't need to be managed. Once they know what to do, they'll go figure out how to do it. They don't need to be managed at all. What they need is a common vision.
