MacBook Pro with Retina Display (15-inch, Mid-2014) Review

 

Gorgeous display; Powerful performance; Responsive and accurate touchpad; Long battery life

Integrated graphics not as robust as those of rival laptops; Some people may want to wait for 5th Generation Core upgrade

The 15-inch MacBook Pro is a great choice for those who demand outstanding performance and a display to match.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display ( 15-inch, 2014, 512GB)

 

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:

 

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.

Apple Retina MacBook Pro (mid-2014)

 

Last week, Apple updated its Retina MacBook Pro line, and while the new models are identical on the outside to their 13in and 15in predecessors, released late last year, the ‘mid-2014′ models feature processors that are just a little bit faster. As...

With beautiful high-resolution screens, fast PCIe-connected flash storage, Thunderbolt 2, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and USB 3.0, Apple’s latest MacBook Pros with Retina display are fantastic machines. And while the changes to the latest models are modest, they...

"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.

I should have switched to Mac sooner!

 

Last year I toyed with buying a Mac over a PC...and didn't do it. I wish I had. This Macbook is fantastic! Obviously, you need to learn changes in the OS but the speed and setup of the system is tremendous. Specific to the fact that this was a Geed...

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...
