The 13-inch 2020 MacBook Pro was the first Pro model with Apple’s newly design M1 Apple Silicon processor. Although there were no other changes to the product line itself the performance and battery benefits afforded by the M1 ARM chip were unparalleled. The biggest controversy was that it only supported one external display which stopped a large portion of customer base from upgrading. The 2020 MacBook Pro was announced alongside the MacBook Air with the same M1 chip but had 8 GPU cores as standard. This was an upgrade on the Air.
The 2020 MacBook Air release was historic for Apple. Implementing the M1 Apple SoC into the lightweight Mac brought drastic performance and battery life improvements. Although there was no overhaul in design it wasn’t needed. The M1 SoC multi-core performance is 2.6x faster than the top specification i7 in the Intel in the previous model. It was released along side an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with very similar specifications.
The first Apple Silicon iMac released by Apple, the 24-inch 2021 iMac, was a massive improvement over the 2020 model range, with the list of changes including a whole new design using the 24-inch form factor, which hadn't been seen since 2009 and a white bezel throwing back to the 2006 model.
The 2021 refresh of MacBook Pro was a huge change from previous models. Alongside the 16-inch the 14-inch was essentially a shrunk down version. Apple normally reduce performance or include lower specification options but this was not the case. You could choose the same M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC. The only performance effecting feature was smaller fans. With more ports, the return of MagSafe and the pushed out bezel screen this was a leap for the MacBook Pro.
Apple announced the redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro during final event of 2021. Featuring Apple’s new M1 Pro and M1 Max, Apple’s second ARM-based SoCs (system on chip). They also welcomed back ports such as HDMI and SDXC going back on their 2016 philosophy and enabled charging through MagSafe 3. The 16-inch and the accompanied 14-inch both featured a notch on the screen due to the reduced bezel moving across the designed language used in the iPhone.

Learn how our process works step by step. We will keep you updated, so you always know what’s going on with your device.
Find Your Serial Number
Using your serial number, we can automatically detect your model and specification with a high level of accuracy. It’s just like entering your car’s registration number.
& Payment Forms
Did you pay hundreds for a dedicated graphics card? We’ll offer you more than our competitors! We’re the only trade-in service which allows you to select the full specification of your device.
It’s not just specifications which can make a big difference. Condition is not as simple as A, B or C graded. We’re the only service to break it down into chassis, screen, battery, and more, so our price is far more accurate. A dent in the bottom shouldn’t devalue your item like a smashed screen.
We Collect From You
Once we’ve confirmed your offer, our team will book your collection. When you select your date, we require a minimum of five days so that your collection pack can arrive in plenty of time and you can pack your item for the courier.
On collection day, DPD will arrive at the address you provided with a pre-paid label that they’ll place on the box. Your item is then delivered to us on a next-day service.
Checking & Testing
Once your item arrives, it’ll be handed to the inspection team. They’ll ensure the condition matches up, you’ve entered the correct specification, and the device is functional. This could include everything from the headphone jack to a stable Wi-Fi connection.
The inspection has passed, and payment is on its way! We offer multiple payment options for your to choose from, which our finance team will deposit the funds into. If you’re part exchanging, your funds will be added to your MacFinder account, ready for you to use.
