16" M1 MacBook Pro vs. 17" MacBook Pro

I was cleaning a closet and came across my old 17" MacBook Pro. What a great machine that was for its time, but it certainly was a battleship. That’s what I think of my current work machine, a brand-new 16" M1 MacBook Pro, so I took the opportunity to compare them. While big, the 16" is not nearly the behemoth the 17" was, despite the relatively close sounding names.
