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...

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...

Review Apple MacBook Pro 15 Late 2011 (2.4 GHz, 6770M, glare)

 

More Bang for the Buck. In a Late 2011 Refresh the MacBook Pro 15

Quality of the case; High-quality display; Very good input devices; Very quiet in low load scenarios

Case can get very hot; Down clocked 6770M graphics card; Loud under heavy load; Base configuration: low resolution, glossy display; Few interfaces; Throttling under heavy CPU and GPU load - likely because of an insufficiently dimensioned power adapter

Apple users will only consider laptops from Apple. The entry-level model with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU and 6750M graphics card might be of particular interest. Furthermore, the smaller 13" model might be a good alternative because of its low price. If you...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2013)

 

Brilliant Retina display. Over 11 hours of battery life. Comes with iLife and iWork software suites. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports. HDMI. Higher than 1080p HD screen

Glossy screen. Ethernet requires adapter. Only upgradeable at time of order

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2013) uses Intel's Haswell-based Core i5 processor to give power users a system that can last over 11 hours under continuous use and still process graphics and scientific tasks quickly. It's $500 less expensive than last...

13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display review (2013)

 

Standing in a Best Buy is an odd time for an existential crisis. Yet it's an almost certain occurrence, at least when you're there shopping for a laptop. More so than with any other product category, buying a laptop forces you to make all manner of...

Gorgeous screen ; Excellent battery life ; Thinner and lighter than ever

Relatively small usable screen real estate ; Poor speakers ; Definite graphics restraints

Here's to the middle ground. The commonalities. The compromises.

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...

13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display review

 

A review of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display so closely following a review of the 15-inch model has many layers. In isolation, the 13-inch Pro is just a smaller version of its well-regarded bigger brother, and so it's easy to set...

Stunning display ; Solid battery life ; Impressive size and weight

Strained performance ; Smaller usable screen area than MacBook Air at Retina setting ; Only 128GB of storage

Is this the MacBook Pro we've been waiting for?
