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...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display ( 15-inch, 2014, 256GB)

 

For anyone complaining that Apple has not released any new products in the first eight months of 2014, we point you toward a series of underplayed but important updates to the Mac line of laptops and desktops.

The 2014 15-inch MacBook Pro offers excellent performance and a better-than-HD screen, plus a boost to its specs for the same price as last year's model.

There's very little new here beyond minor component upgrades, and the entry-level 15-inch Pro is the same price as before, even while several other MacBooks have seen $100 cuts. Higher-resolution screens are no longer a unique feature.

While the small updates to the 2014 model aren't enough for most existing users to upgrade, Apple's excellent 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro is still our go-to laptop of choice for shoppers at the high end.

Can't go wrong with the MacBook Pro!

 

I had enough of purchasing and upgrading multiple PC's every 3 years due to software and hardware issues. This has been my second MacBook Pro purchase. I won't deny it, but it was a nightmare for me as I transitioned from Windows to the Mac OS...

Great computer for normal to high end use.

 

I just purchased this mac for college use, and so far I love it. I upgraded from my 2011 Macbook Pro. The first things I noticed that was different was the amazing screen resolution, as well as the extremely fast sold state memory. I purchased this...

Very powerful processor, great screen resolution, and good overall price
