Apple MacBook Pro (15in with Retina display) review

 

Apple's 15in MacBook Pro with Retina display is perhaps the finest notebook on the Australian market

Excellent screen ; Sturdy build quality ; Great keyboard ; Runs quietly

Some noticeable warmth ; Screen reflections can be annoying

There's no doubt that Apple's 2012 MacBook Pro is a great piece of kit. Its Retina display and Ivy Bridge CPU are the main attractions, but its keyboard and overall build quality are still among the best in the business and make this laptop a worthy...

Apple MacBook Pro (15in, Core i7)

 

It's been almost 12 months since Apple updated its premium MacBook Pro range. There have been no changes to the design of the 15in MacBook Pro -- it's...

Excellent aluminium unibody design, great build quality, Core i7 processor option, increased performance and battery life over previous models, excellent keyboard, large trackpad

Trackpad has areas with poor response, glossy display, 5400rpm hard drive, restricted graphics card switching, USB ports poorly positioned, can become uncomfortably hot on occasion

The design remains the same, but Apple's latest MacBook Pro has received a welcomed upgrade under the hood. The glossy display, slow hard drive and poorly positioned USB ports remain issues, but better performance and battery life than previous models...

Apple MacBook Pro (15in)

 

Apple's latest 15in MacBook Pro notebook doesn't offer anything radically new, but minor internal component upgrades, an SD card slot and the unibody ...

Superb design, aluminium unibody enclosure, backlit keyboard, dual graphics setup, large touchpad, SD card slot, better battery life than previous models

Touchpad has areas with poor response, display viewing angles could be improved, glossy display can be distracting, 5400rpm hard drive, graphics switch requires log-out, no ExpressCard slot, only two USB ports

Apple's latest MacBook Pro features improved internal components and now comes with an SD card slot at the expense of an ExpressCard slot. The superb aluminium design remains the same and performance is pretty impressive on the whole.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Late 2011) review

 

Apple didn’t even press release the changes in this gentle speed bump for autumn 2011’s MacBook Pro. But small increases in performance are there to be had, over what was already a spectacularly fast laptop. We’re still holding out for a complete...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2011) review

 

The MacBook Pro has always been a thing of beauty, combining performance, battery life and portability into one highly desirable, all-aluminium package. It comes as no surprise that the newly refreshed model retains the same stunning design as the...

Stunning performance, amazing new technology and the same great design, but the astronomical price makes the new MacBook Pro for professionals only.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Early 2011) review

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Early 2011) makes many breakthroughs, none visible from the outside - yet one of those revisions alone may transform personal computing…

Externally, this 2011 revision to the 2008-design Apple MacBook Pro isn’t even evolutionary, since there’s no visible change - save a lightning legend logo by the Mini DisplayPort connector. But since that port is actually a Thunderport link, this may...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (MC723B/A)

 

Faster CPUs, more powerful graphics and Thunderbolt come together to make the MacBook Pro a compelling portable workstation.

Fast CPUs ; Good graphics performance ; Thunderbolt ; Beautiful chassis design

Expensive ; No Thunderbolt devices available at launch

If you can afford the admittedly high asking price, the MacBook Pro has a lot to offer. In terms of hardware, it's on par with any equivalent PC based laptop and adds in its own unique feature in the shape of ThunderBolt. The key point, though, is that...

From the outside, little has changed for the 15in MacBook Pro. But a collection of small refinements to the innards make it a lot more appealing

Unless you really need the extra power for gaming go for the good-value base spec, which offers Apple style at a reasonable price

Apple MacBook Pro 15in

 

After inhabiting the same skin for several years, the 15 inch MacBook Pro has been revitalised with the same unibody construction and minimalist aesthetics as its smaller sibling. It was always beautifully built, but the new model surpasses...

Aluminium fail. A gorgeous Mac, but expensive and flawed, and a bit of a let-down for Windows users.

Apple MacBook Pro (15in, early 2011) notebook

 

If you were considering a MacBook Pro recently but held off to see what the model refresh would bring, you might be disappointed. There aren't many innovative updates in the new MacBook Pro -- Thunderbolt is the only one worth writing home about, in...

Thunderbolt is theoretically an excellent connection standard ; Tthe extra processing power is noticeable

There aren't many other changes to write about ; We can't do anything with Thunderbolt at the moment
