Review Apple MacBook Pro 15 Retina 2.3 GHz Mid 2012

 

MacBook Pro meets Retina. At the WWDC 2012, Apple let the proverbial cat out of the bag. The company not only presented several updated models, but also introduced an all-new MacBook Pro with a 15-inch Retina display. The new model features an even...

An even slimmer chassis and less weight ; Build quality, feel & rigidity ; USB 3.0 and HDMI are now integrated ; Input devices including backlit keyboard ; High resolution display (220 DPI, IPS) ; Convincing display data ; Good performance and powerful...

Chassis can get very hot ; Port selection not overwhelming ; Adapter is needed to add additional ports ; Maintenance almost impossible ; Only 12 months standard warranty ; BTO options comparatively expensive ; Many programs are not optimized yet...

HiDPI applications from third-party vendors, an easy method for cleaning the fans, lower temperature at the surface of the chassis. Since the battery is glued in, changing it out won't be cheap

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch Review

 

2011's refresh of Apple's MacBook Pro line-up has been quite a significant one, as far as processing power is concerned, since it finally brings Intel's most awaited Sandy Bridge to the Mac platform. It also marks the point where Apple have switched to...

At Rs.1,04,900, it makes a very tempting buy if you're looking for both battery life and solid performance, which let’s face it, is very difficult to find on a Windows-based notebook. The refresh continues the legacy of the MacBook Pros before it, by...

Apple MacBook Pro ( 15-inch, Summer 2012)

 

Not very long ago, to be the 15-inch MacBook was to be the life of the laptop party. Big and powerful, yet still slim and attractive, the college kids wanted MacBook Airs, while the designers and artists wanted the 15-inch MacBook Pro (or, in a few...

A faster processor, improved graphics, and USB 3.0 highlight a series of internal improvements in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro .

The unchanged design is starting to feel a little dated. Any real structural changes, HDMI, higher-res displays, were reserved for the Retina display version of the MacBook Pro.

Another year of incremental improvements for the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro help it maintain its lead as a useful, powerful, attractive midsize laptop, but the competition is closer than ever to catching up.

Apple MacBook Pro (13in)

 

Apple's 13in MacBook Pro is the smallest notebook in the company's "Pro" range, but it still packs quite a punch. This laptop is a fantastic compromis...

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 15-inch with Retina Display

 

With a stunning 2,880 x 1,800 IPS ‘Retina' screen, Apple's thinnest 15in MacBook Pro is its best yet.

Gorgeous, unrivalled IPS screen ; Superb, class-leading connectivity ; Sleek, attractive design ; Relatively slim and light ; Powerful, balanced specifications

Very expensive ; Not upgradeable ; No Gigabit Ethernet ; Non-standard screen resolution

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...
