13-inch Apple MacBook Pro review

 

The 2012 refresh gives Apple's most portable MacBook Pros an exciting upgrade

New processors ; Better integrated graphics ; Unibody build ; USB 3.0 ; Excellent screen

No discrete graphics ; Limited upgrade options ; Only a small speed bump ; Slow hard drives ; Cheaper model only Core i5

Apple upgraded its entire range of notebooks with the mid-2012 refresh. Although the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has grabbed most of the headlines, the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro shouldn't be overlooked.

Apple Macbook Pro (13in)

 

Apple's smallest MacBook Pro laptop has plenty of power and a long battery life

Fantastic build quality and design, extremely long battery life, multi-touch trackpad, beefy processor and RAM options

RAM upgrades are expensive through Apple, no anti-glare display coating option, battery can't be removed

The 13in Apple MacBook has gone Pro, with more memory, beefier processors and an embedded battery that outlasts similar-sized notebooks we've tested. We would prefer an option for a more powerful graphics card though.

Apple MacBook Pro 13in

 

Review Shock horror – Apple laptop in so-so review scandal. The latest MacBook Pro with Retina Display [1] may be setting a new standard at the top of the range, however, this modest update for the standard 13in MacBook Pro looks rather like it's...

When my esteemed colleague Dabbsie reviewed the 2011 model last November [5] he bemoaned the MacBook’s high price but concluded that it was justified as this was ‘the best bloody entry-level laptop in the world’. This year’s model is just as good, but...

Nice when it works

 

I'm really disappointed in the longevity of this MacBook Pro considering how much it cost. I expect a lot better out of a $1,200 laptop. Before this I used a few cheap PC laptops, and while they were never super fast they did always seem to work. I got...

Looks good, feels well built. Screen looks nice (though I prefer matte finish). Hardware is pretty good, runs most things without a problem. Nice keyboard, nice trackpad. I honestly liked using this laptop, until

things started breaking. Now I baby my electronics, I don't throw them in a bag or toss them on the table or whatever that causes wear on other people's laptops. I had no dents, no scratches on this laptop, I even had a screen protector on it and a...

They are a little more expensive but so far it's worth it

They seem to be built solidly and The OS has been rock steady. I had a laptop with Windows 8 and it was a nightmare. Constant BSOD and program freezes leading to frustrating ; reboots. I had been using PCs for over 25 years and I put up with a lot of...

None so far

loving it

 

dont think because it has intel onboard graphics they are slow i played TF2 on them and it ran smooth without a hitch

great product runs good have not had any problems with MBP like i said loving it but they could have givien 8 gigs of memory stock it would not have hurt

could have given you more memory but ut dnt cost but $37 to upgrade to 8 gigs of ram

Pleased

 

I usually upgrade MBP yearly. This is smooth and even faster then my previous 15inch. Feels lighter and much faster

Switching from Windows

 

It just works and is a nice change. Coming from windows from 10years of use and working with it even Windows 8 beta. Jumping into a new OS just for that whole "New experience" In the new OS there is a feature called "Mission Control" which allows you...

Coming from an Octo-Core Custom build desktop loaded to the teeth with crossfire 6950's and SSD...etc I decided to make a change to the MAC Enviroment more as a learning experience as being a PC Technician I prefer to know the framework of all...

Only 2 USB Ports(Set off by bluetooth 4.0 and your set)
