Buy for Better Battery Life
The new MacBook Pro 16 claims 11 hours of battery life while browsing the web or playing video. This is a bump up and it is thanks to a 100-Wh battery, which is the largest you can take on a plane.
This is impressive given the larger display capable of 500 nits brightness. Apple tested this by browsing websites with the display set at 75% brightness and by playing 1080P content.
Apple is generally good with estimating battery life under real conditions, but you may want to wait and see how this handles. Apple is using new battery chemistry, a bigger battery and a thicker Macbook Pro to make this happen.
