MacBook Pro with Retina display review (15-inch)

 

Though Apple quietly discontinued the 17-inch MacBook Pro this week, hardly a tear was shed. In fact, the company went out of its way to replace the ultra-premium tier with something even more...

Best display ever for a laptop ; Much thinner and lighter than previous Pros ; Powerful new Ivy Bridge chipset ; USB 3.0 and HDMI out!

Screen still prone to glare ; Apps and website not yet optimized for Retina display ; Chassis gets notably hot in processor-intensive situations

Good love is on the way

Amazing, will never go back

 

I cant live without this Mac. I used to have an Mac air and I loved it until I got my hands on this. The Retina display is incredible and I love the size of the screen and how far the screen goes to the sides. Its very fast and I have no complaints.

Awful for typing/coding, clunky for the stuff you need to add to operate it.

 

I have been using the Macbook pro for about two years and I now find typing very stressful as I constantly have to correct myself over and over and over. I now use a standard keyboard that I need to plug in to the macbook pro to type which kind of...

PORTS

 

The most annoying feature of the Mac Book Pro that I purchased this year is the fact that I am unable to connect anything to it as they have changed their connections again. I have purchased other donkey devices so that I can run my 2 back up drives...

Macbook Prada, not Pro

 

The Macbook Pro is an amazing piece of product development and OSX or macOS as its called now is hands down the most user friendly operating system on the market and a key reason why I keep coming back to Mac products. However, calling the Macbook Pro...

Horrendously overpriced

 

I paid $3000 for the 15" MacBook Pro back in September 2014 and I can not tell you enough how much of a rip off it is! For the same price I could build or buy a PC that would leave the MacBook Pro in the dust, I understand MacBooks are built better and...

A fantastic update let down by a poor keyboard and lack of ports

 

I got my first 15" MacBook Pro, 3 years ago. It's the best laptop I have ever owned. As a designer, my MacBook is constant companion allowing me to work untethered to a desk. At the end of 2017, I started having severe battery drain and overheating...

Very good but expensive

 

I am using this laptop for work, with windows 10 and it is great. I also use it at home with mainly video usage' If I have to highlight something bad, than it would be only the battery time, which has gone down drastically over time, when unatached the...

A very bad battery experience - Macbook pro 15' 2017

 

When you buy a macbook pro at $4500 you expect to get a professional tool. It's expensive and so you want the best. With this laptop I get less than 4 hours lifespan. Here I have been recommended not to use photoshop or InDesign when I'm on the battery...
