Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (15-inch, 2014) review

 

Editors' note (June 27, 2017): At this year's Worldwide Developers Conference , Apple gave its laptop line a modest makeover. The $1,299 12-inch MacBook and $999 13-inch MacBook Air have been updated with faster, more powerful Intel processors. The new...

The 2014 15-inch MacBook Pro offers excellent performance and a better-than-HD screen, plus a boost to its specs for the same price as last year's model.

There's very little new here beyond minor component upgrades, and the entry-level 15-inch Pro is the same price as before, even while several other MacBooks have seen $100 cuts. Higher-resolution screens are no longer a unique feature.

While the small updates to the 2014 model aren't enough for most existing users to upgrade, Apple's excellent 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro is still our go-to laptop of choice for shoppers at the high end.

Lots of reasons to buy the 2.2GHz 15in MacBook Pro, but hang on for the new model

Blink and you'll miss the small tweaks to this year's MacBook Pro

 

A faster processor for some models, plus RAM boosts and price cuts for others, but no major overhaul.

Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch Retina Display (2014)

 

Apple's latest 15-inch MacBook Pro represents a slight upgrade to the best system mobile Mac power users can buy. And while the Windows competition is breathing down its figurative neck, it's still our top choice for high-end desktop-replacement laptops.

Brilliant Retina display. Higher-than-1080p HD screen. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports. HDMI. Almost nine hours of battery life. Intel Iris Pro graphics performs like a discrete GPU. 16GB of system memory is standard. Comes with iLife and iWork software suites.

Glossy screen; no matte option. Ethernet requires adapter. Older apps can look blocky.

Essentially, the new 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro is a very incremental upgrade to the model released late last year, and if you already have the 2013 model, there's no need to make the move. The Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch, Retina Display (2014) is still...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (15-inch, 2014, 512GB)

 

Already this year, we've seen processor bumps and price cuts for the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air , a new lower-cost entry level 21.5-inch iMac all-in-one desktop, and now similar component upgrades and price cuts to the MacBook Pro line.

The 2014 15-inch MacBook Pro offers excellent performance and a better-than-HD screen, plus a boost to its specs for the same price as last year's model.

There's very little new here beyond minor component upgrades, and the entry-level 15-inch Pro is the same price as before, even while several other MacBooks have seen $100 cuts. Higher-resolution screens are no longer a unique feature.

Blink and you'll miss the small tweaks to this year's MacBook Pro

 

For anyone complaining that Apple has not released any new products in the first eight months of 2014, we point you toward a series of underplayed but important updates to the Mac line of laptops and desktops.

Apple Retina MacBook Pro (mid-2014)

 

Last week, Apple updated its Retina MacBook Pro line, and while the new models are identical on the outside to their 13in and 15in predecessors, released late last year, the ‘mid-2014′ models feature processors that are just a little bit faster. As...

With beautiful high-resolution screens, fast PCIe-connected flash storage, Thunderbolt 2, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and USB 3.0, Apple’s latest MacBook Pros with Retina display are fantastic machines. And while the changes to the latest models are modest, they...

Apple Macbook Pro 15 MGXC2B/A

 

Great screen, fast start up and good battery life. Transferring data from old Mac easy. Everything across and Mac up and running within the hour. Like launchpad and handover.

Could have an extra usb socket. Wish the power block had more substantial wires, in the past they have fractured eventually.
