Any of the M1, M1 Pro, or M1 Max Macs is a pick, as tested by over 30 YouTube reviewers with Lightroom Classic, Photoshop 2022, Capture One, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. Truly hard core pros with high volume processing will want an M1 Max MacBook Pro with 32 GB memory and 2TB storage, plus 24 or 32 GPU cores.

I got an M1 MacBook Air, 8 core CPU, 8 core GPU, 16 core neural engine, 16GB Unified Memory, and 1TB SSD. $1400 in the Apple Refurbished store. It is fast, FANLESS, never gets hot, and the battery is freaking incredible. It flies through Lightroom file imports and exports, Negative Lab Pro negative to positive conversions, Photoshop Neural Filter conversions, and Final Cut Pro exports of 4K video in H.264 and H.265. Normal web browsing and MS Office tasks happen essentially instantly.

And you get the joy of attaching an external monitor so you can see what you're doing.

It definitely is a joy to use my LG 4K 27" monitor. However, the new retina displays are tack sharp, color accurate, bright, and very usable. The scaling also works extremely well. I'm using the Air on my lap right now. No fatigue after two hours of watching movies and reading emails.
