The 2021 MacBook Pro weighs 3.53 pounds and measures 0.61H x 12.31W x 8.71D inches. It has the black background on the keyboard rather than the space gray background and the touchbar is removed and you have a key row there instead. The key bounce and travel are a bit better than the 13.3-inch M1 MacBook Pro.
