Apple MacBook Pro Laptop


The MacBook Pro is a great mix of high specs and high style. Its iconic design is matched only by its superior performance.

Excellent design; LED-backlit display; Front Row multimedia software; good battery life

No media-card reader; quick to heat up

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Apple MacBook Pro (2016) review: Touch Bar joins forces with Kaby Lake


Apple brings the MacBook Pro into the future with its new design and Kaby Lake, but is it worth the upgrade?

Good performance ; Blazingly fast SSD ; Brilliant wide-gamut display ; Superb touchpad

Only USB Type C ; Very, very expensive

Personally, I’m still quietly impressed. I loved the 12-inch MacBook, and as this delivers a dramatic improvement in the areas that matter to me – namely performance and display quality – the MacBook Pro would make a much better choice than the £1,249...

MacBook Pro 17" 2.6 GHz High Res


After giving it a tremendous amount of thought and doing ample research, we decided on the MacBook Pro 17". We upgraded most of the system including 2.6 GHz, and High Resolution glossy screen. Overall, the computer is BEAUTIFUL! Crystal clear ...

Comfortable, Clear, User-Friendly

High-Resolution upgrade does not offer independent sizing of screen display.

Buyer beware!


Bought this a few weeks ago - advertised as a good deal buy with no interest ... since more investigation have found that Littlewoods have put a markup on it of at least £600 - very disappointed - should have researched it in the first place!

Simply Superb


I bought this item to replace and update a previous MacBook Pro. There has been a complete redesign making this modal slightly smaller and lighter. I am still exploring the updated improvements but all are as expected when buying an Apple product....
