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)

 

Already this year, we've seen processor bumps and price cuts for the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air , a new lower-cost entry level 21.5-inch iMac all-in-one desktop, and now similar component upgrades and price cuts to the MacBook Pro line.

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.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (15-inch, 2014) review: Still the best higher-res laptop, but the competition is catching up

 

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.

MacBook Pro Retina 13in (2014) review

 

Business as usual for Apple – that is, the business of tinkering with an awesome laptop and then reducing the price

Slightly upgraded performance Slightly more affordable Still jaw-droopingly lovely

Dedicated graphics are a pricey option

It may be a microscopically tiny change to the MacBook Pro's formula, but when combined with the price cut it's a winner

Apple Retina MacBook Pro review (13in, 2.8GHz, mid 2014)

 

We test Apple's best 13in Retina MacBook Pro (2.8GHz, mid 2014)

Quad-core processor and discrete graphics may be absent from the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, yet for the great majority of users we’d wager those extras are overkill. In Apple’s latest 13-inch Pro notebook, there’s incredible speed to...

"really good laptop overall"

 

It's a great piece of hardware but I think OSX is much overrated. Couple years ago there's been a huge difference between OSX and Windows experience. I feel nowadays Windows improved significantly in terms of design and UX (especially wind 10 looks and...

build quality, battery life, great screen

OSX is making very slow progress compared to Windows nowadays, only 2 USB ports are really not enough

"Buy it, if you can afford it."

 

An UNIX based OS, that runs flawlessly. Better hardware and hardware utilization compared to other products in this segment. Best laptop with the best OS for doing actual work (unless your job is MMO gold-digging, in that case get the one with...

Best value for money if you take EVERYTHING into consideration

Clearly ahead, but not light years ahead of competition.

Best laptop ever!

 

I can't even describe how much I love my MacBook. I only wish I hadn't waited so long to jump on that bandwagon. It's true what they say - Apple just makes good products. The MacBook is slim, sleek and starts up in less than 30 seconds. My only...
