Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch Retina (2013) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
24 October 2013
  • Summary: At $2,599 for our configuration ($1,999 to start), the 15-inch MacBook Pro represents a serious investment, but it also delivers a serious dose of power and endurance in a portable design.

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is amazing, and amazingly expensive (review)

CNET
5 November 2012
  • Summary: The newly redesigned MacBook Pro with Retina Display combines an amazing screen with just enough of the MacBook Air design to feel like a new animal, and to take its place as the best of the current MacBook breed.
  • Pros: The unprecedented high-resolution screen on the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display makes images -- even simple text -- look beautifully clear. Despite a redesigned, lightweight body, the powerful components, including an Nvidia GPU, compare well to recent high-end desktop replacements. Overdue new ports, including USB 3.0 and HDMI, are welcome.
  • Cons: With a $2,199 entry-level price tag, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display costs more than the typical American mortgage. The lack of onboard Ethernet jack, FireWire, or an optical drive can be inconvenient at times. Despite being thinner and lighter, it's not as travel-friendly as a true ultrabook or MacBook Air.

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro gets better battery life and a lower price

CNET
26 October 2012
  • Summary: The slimmer body and higher-res screen of the original Retina MacBook Pro were a revolutionary leap. This revamp adds modest internal upgrades for modest improvements, but price cuts to both the 13-inch and 15-inch models sweeten the deal.
  • Pros: The second generation of Apple's Retina-screen MacBook Pro adds internal upgrades to its Wi-Fi, Thunderbolt, SSD, graphics card and CPU. The result is a faster laptop with better battery life and a lower starting price.
  • Cons: The changes are internal-only, and not significant enough to upgrade if you have last year's version. At $1,999 to start, this is still a very expensive laptop. Both the 13-inch MacBook Air and Pro have much better battery life.

Apple 15-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display review

expertreviews.co.uk
26 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Apple’s 15in Macbook Pro has always been one of the most powerful and expensive laptops around, but this year’s latest model takes it to a new level of luxury. On the outside, little has changed. Apple’s iconic aluminium chassis is still a slim 18mm thick, but the hardware inside has been completely refreshed to accommodate Intel’s new Haswell CPUs.

Apple Macbook Pro 15 Retina i7 2.0GHz 8GB 256GB (2013 late)

tek.no
18 November 2014
  • Summary: Apples grå og sorte er blitt ny , noe du ikke kan spotte med øynene dine, men merke ved å bruke maskinen. Overgangen til Intels Haswell-arkitektur har gitt den elegante pro-maskinen en liten ytelsesøkning, men mye viktigere: den har fått lengre batteritid.  Batteritiden i vår videotest imponerte kanskje ikke enormt, men MacBook Pro plasserer seg uansett i det øvre sjiktet når det kommer til utholdenhet.
  • Pros: God og lyssterk skjerm, Nøyaktig pekeplate og behagelig tastatur, Bra lyd, Lang batteritid, Solid konstruksjon
  • Cons: Dyr, Mangler dedikert grafikk, Bråker under spilling

MacBook Pro 15 pouces : le Retina passe la 2eme

clubic.com
17 October 2012
  • Conclusion: À sa sortie, le MacBook Pro Retina 15 pouces semblait en avance sur son temps pour le public pro visé : la suppression du lecteur optique, de l'Ethernet ou encore de toute possibilité d'évolution interne avait fait grincer quelques dents, et le fait qu'Apple proposait toujours un MacBook Pro « classique » à son catalogue indiquait clairement qu'il s'agissait d'un pari sur l'avenir.
  • Pros: Ecran toujours impressionnant, Qualité du design/finition, Gain en autonomie, Apps Retina enfin nombreuses
  • Cons: Cher, très cher..., Plus de Geforce sur la version de base, Aucune possibilité d'extension

macprime
11 October 2012
  • Summary: Das 13-Zoll-MacBook-Pro mit Retina Display ist ein gutes Pro-Notebook mit einem sehr guten Bildschirm. Das Retina-Display ist nach wie vor eine Wucht. Dank der neuen Haswell-CPU, der leistungsfähigeren Grafik und dem sehr schnellen PCIe-Flash-Speicher überzeugt das Notebook auch von der Performance her. Zu den weiteren Highlights zählen die ausgezeichnete Batterielaufzeit und die gewohnt hervorragende Verarbeitung.
  • Pros: Exzellenter Bildschirm, Sehr gute Batterielaufzeit, RAM neu optional bis 16 GB, Günstiger, leichter und dünner als Vormodell, Schneller PCIe-Flash-Speicher, 802.11ac und Thunderbolt 2, Sehr gute Verarbeitung & Design
  • Cons: Keine dedizierte Grafikkarte, 4 GB RAM beim Einstiegsmodell sind zuwenig
