13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review


As soon as Apple rolled out the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display last summer, all the Mac addicts we know began clamoring for more Retina models, and this past fall Apple obliged, introducing a 13-inch version. From the outside, it looks just...

Amazing display. Thin and light, only about half a pound heavier than MacBook Air. Flash memory is super fast. $500 cheaper than 15-inch version. Many more apps are Retina-enhanced than when the 15-inch model first came out

Can’t upgrade RAM at all. Can’t upgrade storage after initial purchase. No quad-core option or discrete graphics card. Apps not updated for Retina display are unbearably blurry

13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display


Apple's Retina notebook display comes to its 13-inch MacBook Pro, as does a processor update and the introduction of flash-only storage. The portable Mac powerhouse does get harder to tinker with after you've bought it, though.

Ultra high-res Retina Display Updated processors Fast flash storage

No option for 1TB storage No discrete graphics No removable memory or hard drive
