Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch (Mid-2012)

 

The latest Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Mid-2012), updates the classic laptop with Intel's latest third-generation quad-core processor and adds USB 3.0 connections, which are arguably much more useful than the niche Thunderbolt port that Apple has...

Quad-core Ivy Bridge processor. Switchable Nvidia graphics technology. Long battery life. OS X Mountain Lion improves on an already great user experience ; Cons: Multimedia performance lags. No 1080p display. Editor Rating: 4.00 ; By Brian Westover

The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Mid 2012) is still one of the best laptops around, with solid performance and a superb user experience, but after five-years with no change, the overall design is getting old. Pros: Quad-core Ivy Bridge processor....

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 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...

Refurbished or new?

 

We usually get refurbished hp laptops and turn them into hackintoshes. My wife really wanted the real deal. So I spent some money (actually saved some money because it was refurbished) on a real macbook pro. We are very pleased with the purchase. Thank...

This laptop looks brand new!! It is running well. We are going to upgrade the hd to a ssd to increase boot up time. We will also upgrade the ram. It came with Mt Lion osx. We upgraded the os system to yosemite. We are not ready for el capitan yet. The...

The only con we have is that the power chord does not work-oh man!!! The good folks at new egg refunded some of our money back so we could buy a new one. I love you new egg.

Very Solid

 

Overall it's an outstanding laptop, whether you run OSX or Windows. It's not cheap, but quality rarely is.

Outstanding build quality. Very nice screen (mine is 1680x1050). Trackpad is the best in the industry, as usual. Battery life: watching video, backlight at two thirds, over six hours. The quad core i7 is ridiculously fast. This processor is choked by a...

No HDMI or eSATA ports. Mini Display Port to HDMI adaptors are really cheap, but I wish you could just plug an HDMI cable in. Mountain Lion is ok, but I cant help missing Snow Leopard. The Mountain Lion recovery partition is touchy and sometimes fails....

Phenomenal Machine

 

Skyfox had a great review, but it should be mentioned that this machine DOES have a quad-core i7. The specific CPU is the 3615qm running at 2.3GHz. Very powerful.

As others have said, the build quality on this is second to none. I have owned many laptops over the last two years from many manufacturers (I work in IT, so I get deals on these things all the time) and after having owned HP, Dell, Sony, Acer, and...

Windows 8 support is non-existent. Some people have had success, but not I. First I could not get the trackpad to work. Once I did after several hours, I discovered the machine would not properly enter standby. Oh well. Windows 7 works for me. Don't...

Held back by the HDD

 

If you're goin to go to this price tier, do yourself a favor and buy a 256GB SSD and appropriate screwdriver to remove the back (as described by Ifixit). Follow their complete instructions to install your SSD. My MacBook Pro 13" base model with an SSD...

This is an excellent high powered machine. Will run all programs in OSX like butter. Gets you access to the OSX ecosystem and windows ecosystem in the same machine. The sturdiest and sleekest design you will find. If you're looking for professional...

The system is sadly held back by the HDD. You will notice the CPU rarely taxed, even when running dual systems. Any hesitation in the system is caused by the underpowered HDD
