Engadget Podcast: MacBook Pro M3, iMac and Steam Deck OLED reviews

We finally got our hands on Apple’s new M3 MacBook Pros and iMac! In this episode, we dive into our full thoughts about all of Apple’s new hardware alongside Deputy Editor Nathan Ingraham. The big takeaway: Don’t buy the base model of either computer with just 8GB of RAM. Otherwise, the M3 chips are solid upgrades across the board.

Also, Senior Editor Jessica Conditt joins to tell us all about the new Steam Deck OLED. It has a slightly larger OLED screen than the original model, as well as some extra battery life. While the performance is the same as before, it’s certainly a tempting holiday treat for anyone who’s been eyeing a Steam Deck.
