Apple MacBook Pro (15-Inch Retina Display, 2012 Version) Review and Ratings


Given that you'll want it—and even the most hardened Windows laptop user will want it—the question is, can you justify the $2,199 price of Apple's new MacBook Pro with Retina Display? The answer is easy: What resolution is your camera or camcorder?

Spectacular screen Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop Fast performance from CPU, graphics, and flash storage Good battery life

An incredible, super-high-resolution screen lifts Apple's 2012 flagship laptop to a pinnacle for video and graphics professionals—who'll be too wide-eyed to blink at its $2,199 price.
