Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch review: Why we don’t recommend it

 

The MacBook Pro is a controversial laptop these days -- and that's unfortunate. Due to some divisive changes, Apple fans are more split than ever on whether it's worth the purchase. Compared to the wealth of Windows laptops on the market, is the...

Exquisite look and feel ; Screen is among the best we’ve tested ; Loud, enjoyable speakers ; Spacious, responsive touchpad ; Top-tier hard drive performance

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...

MacBook Pro review (early 2011)

 

Apple might say we're in the post-PC era, but hey -- turns out they still make Macs in Cupertino, and the new MacBook Pro is actually one of the more aggressive refreshes in the machine's history. Not only has it been less than a year since the last...

Extremely fast ; Excellent build quality ; Seven-hour battery life

Expensive ; SSD not standard ; No Blu-ray drive

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2016, Touch Bar)

 

The sleek new Touch Bar adds some genuine innovation to the well-designed and powerful 13-inch MacBook Pro, but as with all new Apple laptops, you'll need to carry lots of adapters or buy all-new peripherals.

Useful, versatile Touch Bar. Compact and sturdy chassis. Four USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Display supports DCI-P3 color spectrum.

Shallow key travel. No USB 3.0 ports. Requires adapters for legacy peripherals.

The redesigned 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro is sleek and capable with excellent interoperability (with iOS, Apple TV, and watchOS) thanks to the Touch Bar. And it has the power and battery life to keep you working all day. You'll have to adjust to the new...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2016)

 

The redesigned Apple MacBook Pro laptop is undeniably slim and sleek, with a better screen and improved performance over its predecessor. But because of its sole reliance on USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, you'll have to either update all of your old...

Almost 12 hours of battery life. Compact and sturdy chassis. Two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Display supports DCI-P3 color spectrum.

Shallow key travel. No USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports. Requires adapters for legacy peripherals.

Overall, the MacBook Pro is impressive, with improved screen quality and battery life over the previous model, and its use of 6th Generation Intel processors helps boost performance as well. Troubling though, is the move to USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 and the...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2013)

 

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.

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.

So there you have it, higher than 1080p resolution on a Retina Display, very good capacity flash storage, very good portability, and phenomenal battery life. That is the recipe for our Editors' Choice winner for high-end ultraportable laptops. If it...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display)

 

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.

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.

Like the optical drive, FireWire 800 has fallen out of favor at Apple, because that venerable (and relatively slow) port is missing from both Retina display–equipped MacBook Pros. You can also use the built-in SDXC card slot for extra storage, though...

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.
