Intel’s version of a MacBook Pro looks even better than a real one
Intel launched a new advert marketing campaign starring Justin Lengthy, Apple’s “I’m a Mac” actor, however for this marketing campaign, Lengthy is singing the praises of PC laptops and evaluating them to MacBooks. The factor is, for causes that we are able to’t fairly determine, Intel really made the MacBook Execs in its commercials look better than they do in real life, as noticed by tech YouTuber Rene Ritchie.
Take a have a look at these two photographs. The one on the left is a picture of a MacBook Pro with an M1 chip taken for GadgetClock’s assessment. The one on the precise is taken from this Intel advert. Can you see the distinction?
I’ll spoil it for you: Intel’s version of the MacBook Pro has a lot thinner display bezels, making it a almost edge-to-edge show. I’d find it irresistible if my MacBook’s bezels have been this skinny! (Although Intel’s version of a MacBook Pro doesn’t have a webcam. Bummer.)
However Intel’s fabled all-screen MacBook Pro didn’t make simply one look. It’s additionally on this advert, which makes an attempt to ding the MacBook Pro for not being a 2-in-1. Have a look at that Mac — all display!
Intel did affirm to GadgetClock on Friday that it used real MacBook Execs with an M1 chip within the commercials, however the firm wouldn’t initially say what it could or could not have modified about them: “With respect to filming and showcasing particulars, we’re not commenting right now,” an Intel spokesperson mentioned.
Nonetheless, Intel’s Ryan Shrout confirmed a probably idea on Sunday: Intel modified the look of the MacBook Execs’ screens in post-production, which had the happenstance impact of making their screens look better than they do in real life. It was a rush job, apparently, and so they made a mistake when compositing.
Additionally, the composite on the Macs made the bezels look smaller than they need to be, one other mistake in composite as a result of time. We recorded utilizing the present transport M1-based machines.

(In the event you have a look at the picture from the second advert, it’s also possible to see some variety of blackish-haze utilized over the display, which most likely wouldn’t be there in actuality.)
These advertisements, in my view, are additionally variety of lacking the purpose. None of Intel’s 4 new commercials reveal how Intel’s chips can compete with the MacBook Pro’s real benefit: Apple’s speedy and battery-efficient M1 chip. (To date, Intel has solely produced cherry-picked benchmarks to try to hit again on the M1.) And by attempting to dunk on the MacBook Pro, Intel can be, in a manner, dunking on itself, because it nonetheless supplies chips for some fashions of the Apple laptop computer.
And severely, doesn’t that all-screen MacBook Pro simply look good?
