Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (13-inch)

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display outclasses Ultrabooks with a much sharper screen, faster performance and longer battery life.

Superb Retina display; Excellent overall performance; High-quality speakers; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad; Long battery life

Pricier than most ultraportables; Integrated graphics

Click to EnlargeThe 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a lot like the iPhone 5. Apple took a winning formula and perfected it by making it thinner, lighter and faster. But in this case the display isn't bigger. It's a quantum leap better than...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display ( 13.3-inch)

 

By adding a high-res Retina Display to a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple has taken the odd man out of its MacBook line -- the previous 13-inch Pro -- and turned it into a sleek, modern laptop sitting at the midway point between slim ultrabook and...

The new 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display adds a screen that's nearly as high-res as the 15-inch version, making for incredibly crisp text and images. The slimmer body feels much more modern, and the excellent keyboard and trackpad remain.

Considering that this looks and feels a lot like the 13-inch MacBook Air, you may be in for a bit of sticker shock, especially as the base model only includes 128GB of SSD storage.

While the Retina MacBook Pro is easily the most desirable 13-inch Mac laptop to date, the high price and lack of discrete graphics make it a tough call versus either the more powerful 15-inch Retina Pro or the more affordable 13-inch Air.

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 13in with Retina display review

 

It was inevitable that the original Retina-class notebook, the 15in MacBook Pro, would be joined by a similarly bescreened 13in model.

The essential specifications of the 13in Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display closely follow the groundbreaking original 15in version. Reduced size here necessitates integrated-only graphics, as well as a more efficient dual-core rather than quad-core...

Review: Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display

 

Subtle tweaks make a big impact – with a lightning-fast SSD and Haswell CPU, Apple has a winner on its hands.

It’s incredibly tough to find fault with the new MacBook Pro. There’s power aplenty, great battery life, a class-leading display and – thanks to Intel’s Iris GPU – the graphics performance the Retina display always deserved. Gram for gram, we can’t...

Review: Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display

 

With the Apple 13in MacBook Pro's metal unibody chassis shrinking to a mere shadow of its former self, and a Retina display cramming in more pixels per inch than any laptop we've ever seen, Apple has rung the changes.

This isn’t a MacBook for the average buyer - the Retina display is overkill for most people, and the price premium is substantial.

Meet the cheaper, but not cheap, and impressive retina display model.

Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display review

 

When Apple execs debuted the new Mac lineup for the holidays last month, they noted that the 13-inch MacBook Pro was already the best-selling Mac. Both its power and small size have been key to this success.

In terms of actual performance, the Intel i5 processor isn't as fast as the quad-core i7 I'm used to - which is obvious, but it was interesting to see the difference. Encoding a two-and-a-half hour video took an hour longer than on my own laptop. So...
