Review: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Wired
1 November 2013
  • Excerpt: But that was 2012. Apple debuted a 13-inch model earlier this year, and now it’s on to generation two for both sizes. It’s clear Apple has firmly got the hang of the Retina display notebook game.
  • Pros: Extremely sharp 2560x1600 resolution display (2880x1800, for the 15-inch model) is pure eye candy. Excellent springy keyboard and trackpad. Super snappy, powerful processor, with integrated graphics. Nearly all-day battery performance.
  • Cons: Price -- upgrades, add-ons, and accessories can still up the base cost by nearly $1,000. Sealed unibody design is virtually impossible to upgrade yourself once you've purchased the device.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 June 2012
  • Summary: Is this MacBook a good value? While you can pick up a non-Retina Display 15-inch Pro with the same processor, RAM and graphics for $300 less, you don't get the benefits of flash memory, and it's more than a pound heavier. Yes, you could add a 256GB SSD, but that's $500 by itself.

  • Pros: Slim, light, fast and that Retina display!
  • Cons: Expensive, parts not upgradable.

  • Summary: The MacBook Pro gains a staggeringly crisp Retina display and quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU. The result is stunning, and although expensive there is no other laptop out there to match it.
