Apple is rumoured to be making the MacBook Pro bigger, faster, and cheaper, and I can't wait.
Do you want a less expensive 14-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 chip? I, too,
I was an instant convert to Apple Silicon: I purchased the M1 MacBook Pro (2020) as soon as it became available, and I adore it. It's the best laptop I've ever owned, even better than my orange iBook and my ridiculously large Powerbook G4 17". I just wish it was a little bigger, faster, and less expensive than the current 14-inch model.
So I'm thrilled to hear that Apple is planning an upgrade: the entry-level MacBook Pro 2022 will have a larger display, a more powerful system on a chip, and a lower price tag than the MacBook Pro 14-inch.
The information comes from Twitter leaker DylanDKT, who claims that the new laptop will be available in the second half of 2022. It will have a 14-inch display and an M2 chip, and it will be available at the same time as the redesigned 2022 MacBook Air.

MORE MAC FOR LESS MONEY
Although Dylan claims the new model will have the same design as the current M1 Max MacBook Pro 14-inch, that doesn't necessarily mean it will have the same display: instead of a Liquid Retina XDR, it may stick with the current model's LED Retina display.
I spend many hours a day in front of that display, and it's still great: it's connected to one of the best MacBook Pro monitors, and it's still crisper, clearer, and more engaging. I suspect the incoming model will also stick with the relatively limited ports on my MacBook, which has two USB-C ports and nothing else.
The price will be slightly higher than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro but lower than the current 14-inch: the price should be closer to the former than the latter. We'll undoubtedly hear a lot more about the next-generation MacBook Pro between now and its release in late 2022.
