MacBook Pro 2012 review

 

Is the new MacBook Pro's Retina Display and high spec enough to worry ultrabooks?

Stunning Retina Display ; Fierce processing power ; Effortless multi-tasking

Lack of Retina optimised apps ; No optical drive ; Very pricey

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display review

 

The new Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display (Late 2013) is almost upon us. But before the launch of the 2013 Retina MacBook Pro, it's high time to take a closer look at the world's current finest notebook computer – the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro with...

Retina display; fast SSD; quad-core processor; dual Thunderbolt

Lost ethernet and FireWire ports; not upgradeable

The new Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display (Late 2013) is almost upon us. But before the launch of the 2013 version of the Retina MacBook Pro, it’s high time to take a closer look at the world’s finest notebook computer – the 15-inch Apple MacBook...

REVIEW: Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display (2012)

 

In amongst all the hype surrounding the iPhone and iPad, it's easy to overlook the fact that Apple's Macintosh computers—and its MacBook laptops in particular—have also enjoyed booming sales in recent years. In fact, Apple claims to have just taken the...

If you want a laptop for running Microsoft Office, the MacBook Pro with Retina display is complete overkill and impossible to justify at this price. That doesn’t alter the fact that it’s utterly desirable—and there are rumours of a less expensive...

Apple Macbook Pro with Retina display review

 

Super screen, fast performance, slimmed down 15in model, but usual hefty Apple price tag

Retina display, thin and sleek design, great battery life, speedy performance

Need to shell out £25 for an Ethernet connector

The slight letdown on reviewing this new model is that it's still running Mac OS X Lion, version 10.7.4. Apple said that anyone buying a Mac is eligible for a free copy of Mountain Lion when it's released in July, but it would have been nice if the...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display review

 

Apple has excited its fans with the latest addition to its MacBook range - a Retina display.

Retina display, thin and sleek design, great battery life, speedy performance

Waiting for Mountain Lion, expensive

The Retina MacBook Pro is a fantastic laptop for anyone who works with video or photos, or just wants a brilliant display to view multimedia content on, though of course it comes with the obligatory high price tag.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display

 

The MacBook Pro gains a staggeringly crisp Retina display and quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU. The result is stunning, and expensive

Applications are faced with a similar issue. Apple has already updated most of its iLife suite, Aperture and Final Cut Pro X, so they can take full advantage of the screen’s high resolution for editing photos and HD video. Other developers, such as...

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display review (mid 2012)

 

Product categories come and go, grow and wither, revolutionize the world and then slowly fade into a state of cold, quiet, everlasting obsolescence. It

Beautiful Retina display ; Thinner and lighter than previous Pros ; World-class performance ; Improved battery life

Expensive ; MagSafe 2 connector requires an adapter

The MacBook Pro with Retina display is a top-shelf laptop with a world-class display. It isn't cheap, but it's worth it.

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

 

Thin, fast, and sporting a high-resolution screen, the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display pairs high-end computing power with a superstylish MacBook Air-inspired design.

The unprecedented high-resolution screen on the new ; 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...

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,...

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.

Review: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display

 

Apple's latest top-of-the-line laptop is an expensive, factory-sealed machine with a stunning display -- a PC that's the first of its breed.

Extremely sharp 2880×1800 resolution display is pure eye candy. Excellent springy keyboard and trackpad. Even the cheapest model, with 8GB of flash memory and an SSD, is super speedy. Never thought I’d be comfortable holding a 15-inch notebook in one hand

Price is hard to swallow — upgrades, add-ons and accessories can bump the cost up nearly ,000 more. Sealed unibody design is impossible to upgrade yourself once you’ve purchased the device — but come now, you knew that going in
