Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 Retina 2.5 GHz Late 2012


Hot stuff. The Apple MacBook Pro 13 is now available with a high-resolution IPS display, a slimmer chassis, and new ports. The newcomer demands a price premium of 500 Euros (~$650) above the cost of the time-tested standard model. Do the changes really...

Slimmer chassis with lower weight ; Build quality, fit and feel, overall sturdyness ; HDMI and USB 3.0 are on board ; Very good input devices, keyboard backlight ; High resolution IPS display with 227 DPI ; Convincing performance ; Speakers sound very...

Port selection somewhat limited ; No dongles included ; System is not expandable ; Warranty is only 12 months ; Not many BTO options ; Display brightness fluctuates; bleeding is an issue

From Apple: MacBook Pro 15 with Retina display for those needing a lot of power, the still available MacBook Pro 13 Mid 2012 for 500 Euro (~$650) less, or the even slimmer MacBook Air 13 Mid 2012 with ULV processors. With Windows: Asus Zenbook Prime...

Entry-level "Pro". Apple's MacBook Pro series has been enjoying g

excellent build quality; - good display; - large trackpad with comprehensive gesture support; - long battery life; - compact dimensions; - comparatively high performance

low display resolution; - slow hard drive; - SSD at a premium; - battery not user exchangeable; - fan is loud under load

The mobility factor of this notebook. We are not only talking about the fairly low weight here or the compact dimensions, but also about the very long battery life. Especially under Mac OS X the MacBook Pro keeps going...and going...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Late 2011) Review


While the MacBook Pro 15-inch makes a great workhorse, it's not exactly the most portable notebook around. If you do move around a lot, then you should look at the MacBook Pro 13-inch, which offers the same level of performance (almost) and is the...

The Late 2011 model replaces the earlier MacBook Pro 13-inch for the same price of Rs.84,900, while the ‘cheaper’ one with a 2.4GHz Core i5 CPU retails for Rs.69,900. Considering a little more money can fetch your the 15-inch model that’s also a lot...

Excellent workmanship, stability and design; Improved display; SD cardreader and Firewire 800; Mostly very quiet

For Apple users of course clearly the lower-priced 2.13 GHz model and also the white MacBook.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina Display Review


If you absolutely have to have a Retina display notebook, you will be happier to find a refurbished 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro for a few hundred dollars more.

Beautiful screen ; Excellent backlit keyboard ; Perfect size for portability and power

Noticeable Display Lag ; Non-Retina supported apps look terrible ; No dedicated graphics card

The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is just a beautiful device in general from how it is designed and the quality of images the high-resolution display produces. Everything that is physically good from Apple’s line of notebooks will be found on this one but...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display)


Apple's new MacBook Pro 13-Inch (Retina Display) ($1,999 list) gives the insanely picky visual artist a new, more portable sidekick. The MacBook Pro has been redesigned with many of the features that made the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Retina Display)...

High-resolution Retina display. Includes two Thunderbolt ports. Standard 8GB of memory. Good battery life. Supports Power Nap

Pricey. Requires Retina-optimized apps for best user experience

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display) is the best way to carry the pixels of a large-screen monitor with you on the road. It's ideal for people who make their living with visuals.

Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, mid 2012)


When the MacBook Pro with Retina display is in the game, Apple's "regular" Pros may seem a bit like also-rans. After all, why would you choose them when you could get a brilliant 15-inch 2,880 x 1,800 IPS panel and a Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor? Well,...

Lovely design ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; Good day-to-day performance

No discrete graphics ; Relatively low-res display

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro may not be the star of the show now that the Retina model is in on the scene, but it nonetheless offers solid performance and a attractive, sturdy design.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Mid 2012)

Solid construction and classic design. New Intel Core i7 processor gives performance a boost. Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 offer speedy connectivity

No HDMI without an extra dongle. Boilerplate resolution
