Limited opening angles of the display; Only 2 USB ports, modem and docking port are missing; Partly the aluminum case gets clearly warmer

It's a miracle, how Apple could put this first-class equipment into such a slim case and also keep the noise emissions low at the same time. You can only call it: Art - The art to design top-class and sophisticated mobile notebooks

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Retina Display)

 

With a higher-resolution display, thin chassis, and up-to-date components, the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina Display is the new king of high-end desktop replacement laptops.

Brilliant Retina display. Thin profile. Good port selection. Discrete graphics. Speedy storage. Has 8GB of memory. Ready for Mac OS X Mountain Lion

Ethernet use requires adapter. Not all apps currently work well with Retina display

MacBook Pro Is One Helluva PC

 

Mac haters, get ready to seethe. The MacBook Pro 15-inch isn't just the best Mac around, it's one hell of a PC. Even when running a non-native OS (Windows, that

Astounding gaming performance — even trumped a $4,800 Alienware machine. Unrivaled battery life of three hours of DVD playback at max screen brightness. Performs just as well in the form of a Windows PC as it does as a Mac
