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.

Best Computer I've Ever Owned

 

In the past I've had Windows laptops from IBM, Dell, Compaq, HP and Toshiba but every single one had issues that rendered them awful to work on. I've had laptops with glitchy keyboards, terrible sound cards, noisy fans and constantly overheating under...

The Mac Pro is a great laptop

 

This being my first Mac I was worried that changing from a pc, would be a challenge. It has been much easier than expected. Overall I can only say positive things about the Mac Pro.

This MacBook Pro is light, fast, and powerful!

 

This MacBook Pro is light, fast, and powerful! I've been an Apple fan since the IIGS and continue to love their products. My new MacBook Pro is as much a workhorse as my previous one, and the display is amazing! I love it!
