Review Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13 Late 2013 Notebook

 

Thank you Haswell. Intel's latest processor generation is finally available in Apple's Retina MacBooks and results in significantly improved battery runtimes. Our in-depth review determines the performance of the new components. ...

Very quiet; Long battery runtimes; Excellent unibody chassis; High-resolution IPS display with excellent OS support; Great input devices

Virtually no upgradeability; Difficult to maintain and to repair because of pentalobe screws; Glossy display; Only 12 months warranty and expensive upgrade to three years

Obviously the MacBook Air 13". Amongst Windows devices high-resolution ultrabooks like the Asus Zenbook Infinity UX301LA (Review), Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, Samsung Ativ Book 9 or the Toshiba Kirabook 13.

Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 Retina 2.5 GHz Late 2012

 

Hot stuff. The Apple MacBook Pro 13 is now available with a high-

Slimmer chassis with lower weight; Build quality, fit and feel, overall sturdyness; HDMI and USB 3.0 are on board; Very good input devices, keyboard backlight; High resolution IPS display with 227 DPI; Convincing performance; Speakers sound very good;...

Port selection somewhat limited; No dongles included; System is not expandable; Warranty is only 12 months; Not many BTO options; Display brightness fluctuates; bleeding is an issue

From Apple: MacBook Pro 15 with Retina display for those needing a lot of power, the still available MacBook Pro 13 Mid 2012 for 500 Euro (~$650) less, or the even slimmer MacBook Air 13 Mid 2012 with ULV processors. With Windows: Asus Zenbook Prime...

Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13 (Early 2015) First Impressions

 

Encore une fois. Apple's workhorse in the form of a compact 13-inch goes into the next round. An overview of the most important modifications: New Force Touch touchpad, update to Intel's Broadwell CPU including an Iris Graphics 6100, faster PCIe-based...

As far as we can judge at this stage of our tests, we would conclude with "mission accomplished" for now.

MacBook Pro (2015) review: welcome to Force Touch

 

Apple is rolling out a major new hardware feature this year with the introduction of what it calls Force Touch. It is a catch-all term for a combination of pressure sensitivity and haptic feedback...

The best trackpad gets better ; Retina display is never anything short of sublime ; Unmatched combination of battery life, performance, and build quality

The thinner MacBook Air does most things just as well ; Force Touch applications are still in their infancy ; USB-C port would have been a nice addition

MacBook Pro with Retina display review (13-inch, 2015)

 

Nope, it's not the new MacBook. That review will need to wait until next month. What we have here is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. For all

Gorgeous screen ; Long battery life ; Good graphics, even faster SSD speeds ; Comfortable keyboard

New trackpad takes getting used to; Force Touch gestures aren't that useful ; Discrete graphics still not an option on the 13-inch Pro ; The machine isn't any thinner or lighter than it was a year and a half ago

The refreshed Retina display MacBook Pro brings faster performance and longer battery life, along with the same stunning screen and comfortable keyboard. This time around, though, Apple also traded in its already-best-in-class trackpad for a new,...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch, Retina Display (2015)

 

Although the fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and Force Touch trackpad are minor updates, this year's 13-inch Retina Apple MacBook Pro is still an easy top pick for high-end ultraportables.

More than 11 hours of battery life in our tests. Brilliant Retina display with higher-than-1080p resolution. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports. HDMI port. Comes with iLife and iWork software suites

Only upgradable at time of order. Base Flash Storage capacity is just 128GB. Glossy screen. Ethernet requires adapter. Force Touch trackpad takes a little getting used to, and is of limited use right now

This year's Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch, Retina Display ($1,299 as tested) looks the same as the previous model. But inside is neat update, with a fifth-generation (Broadwell) Intel Core i5 processor and the new Force Touch trackpad, which adds more...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display 2015 (13-inch, 128GB)

 

For spring 2015, the 13-inch MacBook Pro keeps the same body and high-resolution Retina Display as before, while adding some spec upgrades that run from minor to meaningful. As expected, the system moves to Intel's fifth-generation Core i-series chips,...

Apple adds new Intel CPUs, faster memory, longer battery life and its new Force Touch trackpad to the standard 13-inch MacBook Pro, which keeps its generous selection of ports.

The 2015 updates make only a minor difference to the hands-on experience, while similar high-end 13-inch laptops continue to get thinner and lighter.

While the upcoming 12-inch MacBook has all the buzz, this 13-inch system gets a handful of updates to remain a top choice for combining power and portability.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina Display (2015) Review

 

Bright display; Fast hard drive speed; Innovative Force Touch trackpad; Very long battery life

Not as thin and light as competition; SD Card sticks out

Blazing speed, an innovative new touchpad and super-long battery life put the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro in a class of its own.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch, Retina Display (2014)

 

The latest 13-inch Retina Apple MacBook Pro gives you top-notch performance and more than 13 hours of battery life in a beautifully designed laptop. It's our top pick for high-end ultraportables.

13+ hours of battery life in our tests. Brilliant Retina display with higher-than-1080p resolution. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports. HDMI port. Comes with iLife and iWork software suites

Only upgradeable at time of order. Base 128GB Flash Storage capacity is small. Glossy screen. Ethernet requires adapter

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch, Retina Display (2014) ($1,299, as tested) is the newest base model in the line, with a 2,560-by-1,600-resolution screen, speedy Intel processor, and excellent connectivity, particularly with its pair of 20Gbps Thunderbolt...

13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display review (2013)

 

Standing in a Best Buy is an odd time for an existential crisis. Yet it's an almost certain occurrence, at least when you're there shopping for a laptop. More so than with any other product...

Gorgeous screen ; Excellent battery life ; Thinner and lighter than ever

Relatively small usable screen real estate ; Poor speakers ; Definite graphics restraints

Not quite a perfect mix, but an excellent middle ground
