MacBook Pro review (13-inch, mid-2012)

 

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.

Lovely designComfortable keyboard and trackpadGood day-to-day performance

No discrete graphicsRelatively low-res display

Equipped with a new Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000, this year's MacBook Pro is a capable machine. Is it the highest-performing system out there? Nah -- and without discrete graphics or an SSD, that's hardly a surprise. This is...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Mid 2012)

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Mid 2012) gives us the familiar MacBook design with speedier performance and new faster USB 3.0 connections.

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

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Thunderbolt)

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Thunderbolt) will continue to be Apple's best selling laptop, thanks to a component overhaul and new technologies like Thunderbolt and FaceTime HD.

Core i5 processor is a long time coming. Gorgeous Unibody enclosure. Thunderbolt is in its early stages, but it looks promising. Webcam now streams in HD and works with Facetime app. Backlit keyboard. Glass Clickpad has no equals

Pricey. No improvement in graphics performance. Higher screen resolution not available

Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2011)

 

The most well-rounded 13-inch notebook gets a serious speed boost and lasts even longer on a charge than its predecessor.

Apple has once again created a winning notebook. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is considerably faster than its predecessor yet lasts over 8 hours on a charge. We also like the new FaceTime HD camera and look forward to seeing Thunderbolt-enabled peripherals...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz)

 

Though it's only a component bump, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz) is still a solid back-to-school, mainstream laptop.

Better battery life than its predecessors. Speed and memory bumps help performance. Unparalleled multi-touch gestures., Backlit keyboard. Excellent software bundle. Sturdy. Best looking chassis in its class

Intel Core 2 Duos are an aging processor technology. Heavy for a 13-inch laptop

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2010)

 

An updated processor and graphics chip make this MacBook Pro even more powerful while still delivering all-day battery life.

Excellent endurance ; Stylish, sturdy design ; Strong graphics performance ; Comprehensive software suite ; Large, comfortable touchpad

Only two USB ports ; Reflective display ; A bit pricey

The outside looks the same, but the guts of the 2010 version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro have been revamped. This thin-and-light laptop now features a faster processor and double the graphics performance. Better yet, it lasts nearly 8 hours on a charge,...
