Apple's MacBook Pro 13-inch laptop has an amazing 2560 x 1600 retina display and superb build quality.

Superb high-res screen, Excellent build quality, Attractive design, Powerful specs (aside from graphics)

Expensive, No dedicated graphics, No Touch, Decent but not great battery life

Apple: 2013 Retina MacBook Pro

 

In the latest update to the Retina MacBook Pro, some models got price cuts, some received slightly faster processors, and some got a healthy bump in the amount of RAM. Anyone who purchased a Retina MacBook Pro prior to this refresh shouldn't kick...

Reduced screen glare; top-notch performance; slim and lightweight; USB 3.0 support; HDMI connectivity; stunning Retina display

Users will need to adjust for missing features; 1920-by-1200 creates small UI elements; memory and storage not user upgradeable

Results are in frames per second. HIgher results are better. Best result in bold. Reference models in italics.

PC!

 

Good for the simple schoolwork, obviously not a gaming computer :D

Simple, nice for simple school work

Completely overpriced, I built a computer with double to triple all of the stats in this computer for 1600

Best laptop I've ever used

 

Nicest laptop I've ever used. The IPS 2880x1800 display is amazing, the CPU is great, the 16GB ram is good, the discrete graphics are good enough to play any of my games. It's thin and light, first laptop I've ever had that I can use for gaming or...

For windows users, you are missing the DEL key and the prtscrn key (Del is backspace, FN-DEL is del). This is just due to having an appl kbd. I got used to it

Awesome display - Lightweight and cool

 

I was able to load Windows 7 with a little help (web searches) for some instructions.

Display is crystal clear and smooth ; Lightweight and very portable ; Runs quiet (no noisy fan) ; It gets slightly warm to the touch but not much ; FAST ; Backlit keyboard (keys are really smooth and very even (for someone who use a computer all day, I...

No FireWire ports ; No Ethernet port ; No optical drive (not a big deal for me but some people might consider this a con) ; I don't think it's Windows 8 compatible ; No recovery disks or partition that I saw (you hit OPTION+R to get to recovery menu...
