Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Apple has updated its workhorse 15-inch MacBook Pro with a super-high resolution retina screen, a slimmer and lighter design and the latest-generation Intel processors. It's an extreme machine, but the lack of an Ethernet port and the total inability to upgrade it will be problems for pro users.
  • Cons: Very expensive; No Ethernet port for uploading big files; cannot be upgraded with faster components.

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

CNET
7 March 2014
  • 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.

MacBook Pro 15 pouces : le Retina passe la 2eme

clubic.com
11 November 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
8 November 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
