MacBook Pro review. In our view, the additional cost and the concessions made for the new design are worth it. The only question that remains is: Can you afford it? Macbook Pro Review, with Retina Display. Macbook Pro with Retina Display review. The Telegraph. Those users who are willing to spend the money will get an exceptional machine, one that points to the future of laptops as much as the MacBook Air did before it. Review: New MacBook Pro is revolution for eyeballs. To experience the height of quality?
To fulfill a personal aesthetic hunger? To show off to friends and strangers alike? It makes no difference: The reason is certainly not to get you to work and back. USA Today. Review: New MacBook Pro is 'powerfully robust'. This latest flagship is an object to be desired, a powerfully robust laptop in a. There is nothing skinny about the price, though. Engadget Reader. February 14, The best in its category. We highly recommend it. February 3, Bad ass machine.
If you have the money the choice is clear. January 21, Web and graphic designers, don't consider anything else. The best, plain and simple. January 17, There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. January 11, January 7, A gadget unicorn - Engadget.
November 27, November 21, November 18, November 17, Having used it now for just on two weeks it is a joy too use. The speed and responsiveness is silky smooth and even running a lot of pro apps like Aperture and Final Cut and Logic has no dramatic effect on that speed. The screen is gorgeous and colours are brighter and more vibrant than what I used before.
Now I have no trouble moving from Retina screens to non-Retina screens my iPad 2 but on the Retina screen I can read longer without my eyes getting tired. But that is just a small thing. Overall this is one fabulous machine to work with makes working on a mac a lot of fun again. November 11, October 28, The highest quality, fastest computer I've owned to date. The major drawback is the price. If money is no object, this is the computer to get. October 23, October 11, October 2, The Best laptop on the market hands down.
Seriously, nothing comes close. September 28, Not much more to say that I haven't said above. It's a Mac, it's fast, it's lightweight. Holds everything I need, does everything I need, and is faster and more powerful than my older 17" MacBook Pro. Great screen is easy on my eyes and as realistic a view, with great detail, as you could ever ask for.
You can't do much better than this, especially for the money. September 23, September 22, September 18, July 31, July 25, The exact cause is unknown to me at this time, but it seems to have something to do with an apparent screen refresh bug that doesn't handle retina displays well.
Forums suggest disabling graphics switching mode, sleep mode, and a host of other kludge workarounds that didn't help me much. Despite that, I would purchase it again-- I just wouldn't pay as much. July 12, July 1, In terms of processing power and performance this is dynamite. I ran some initial tests with XCode,iPhoto, and Aperture. This thing is fast.
I look forward to getting into it more. The screen is incredible and makes everything have that extra 'pop'. The Retina display definitely does make a difference. The only sore point is that you can't upgrade RAM. At the time of purchase you need to purchase the ram and SSD it comes with.
That's why, in my view, it's not a total wash in terms of upgradability. It's a very fast machine in other typical tasks such as office type documents iWork , and web browsing. Expandability is relative. The Thunderbolt ports provide a surprising amount of things you can upgrade and add to this computer.
It's not the most elegant solution for every situation, but yes, it does provide a measure of expandability and oddly enough something that gets overlooked. You can buy whole enclosures if you want to really keep adding things to this computer.
Overall this is the best computer I have owned. June 25, June 24, June 2, Great computer, no doubt one of the nicest laptop in the market. Although I had a few problems with the battery, but its fixed now. Other than that and a few minor bugs, its perfect for personal use, business, even occasional gaming. May 22, May 21, I have been using my Retina MacBook Pro since August of and have really enjoyed using it as an all around computer.
I really love the screen resolution on it and have a hard time looking at my old computer's monitor. May 2, Finally got a Samsung panel without image retention. Now it is a keeper. This screen is such a real estate. I upgraded from a late Macbook Air 13". Compared to my previous Mac, this Macbook seems a bit bulky. But the retina display and all other internal upgrade make you quickly forget about that.
Im not moving my laptop often so the size is second need for me. But I guess road warrior without heavy power need would prefer the perfect balance of the Macbook Air 13". I don't do photo, video editing and gaming on this laptop. Mainly coding and light task. If a Macbook air 13" retina was available I would hesitate a lot. But bigger screen and the retina resolution was the key of this upgrade for me. I would say, it is near perfection, if you exclude all image retention on LG panel.
April 7, April 5, March 31, March 29, This is the best computer I have ever owned, laptop or desktop. Fast, light, powerful with a great display. March 18, The sacrifices made to strip a few mm off the thickness, take the gloss off what would otherwise have been an excellent Pro portable. You'll be amused when you see Windows on the high res 15" display through a virtual machine. Speed is good, but largely due to the SSD.
Dumped is the optical drive. There is no RJ45, only one 3. It runs frighteningly hot. Apple has put form ahead of function in the design of this laptop. Be prepared to buy a large bag to carry all the drives and adaptors required to replace those omitted from your thin, light laptop. Fortunately, 3rd party suppliers like Lacie and Canopus are making Thunderbolt hubs to restore some of the missing ports. Belkins, the most comprehensive, missed its 4th qtr release target and looks like it will miss the 1st qtr date.
March 8, March 7, March 6, March 5, February 25, February 8, January 31, They often say you shouldn't buy the first generation of any apple product, and in this case I think that's probably some good advice. The retina macbook pro is a beautiful machine and still miles ahead of anything else available on the market but I've experienced two major issues with it.
Some screens manufactured by LG suffer from ghosting. I really only noticed this when I started using an external monitor for desktop work and I've leave my email open on the laptop screen. After a while I noticed you could still see outlines of the mail app when it was minimised or closed. Apple have been most unhelpful in resolving this and they claim that it's within acceptable tolerances.
It appears that the bluetooth and wifi antenna are on the same board and can interfere with each other. Overall this laptop is very good, but quite flawed. January 14, January 6, December 22, I have been using this machine for two months. Although the price is high but it's worth every penny. The retina display is stunning, nothing can compare the quality, sharpness, colours, it's the best companion for designers. Overall, this is a must have gadget. December 20, Absolutely the best laptop Apple has ever released, hands down.
I bought this to replace my 17" top-of-the-line Mac from late It's beautiful in every way. It may be a while until the world catches up with this technology. While I was already getting a major upgrade from my Macbook, the additional processor speed was worth the cash.
This computer moves so quickly, I can barely click fast enough. The days of being several steps ahead of my computer are over. Combine the blazing-fast processor with the SSD drive, and you've got one crazy-fast Macbook on your hands. Startup and shutdown time is less than 10 seconds.
Launching even the most memory-heavy applications takes even less time. I will surely add a month to my life this year in wait time alone. I've noticed other reviewers giving poor marks in expandability, but perfection needs no expansion. I don't know how Apple can improve on this one.
December 12, This is my first Apple laptop. I have a work background in IT and found that the Apple OS and hardware packages available suited my needs perfectly for a home computer. After using it for a few months now I feel I made the right choice buying this. December 11, I purchased this computer and let me tell you.. I am the basic laptop user, browsing, emailing and working with iphoto. It sucks!!!!! I had the old Macbook pro and it is still better than this one!
I just bought it couple of months ago and I already want to go get if fixed! It is annoying because it pops up all the time! I did not expect to be disappointed from something that expensive! December 4, So much faster than my previous MBP. Hands down the best computer I've owned to date. November 25, November 5, Best and Sexiest Machine Ever Own!
My First Mac! November 4, First of all let me say that I love this screen! Now let me follow up by saying that I don't really love the price. My eyes have been spoiled with the Retina display on the iPhone 4, iPad 3 and now the iPhone 5. When I would use my MacBook Pro the text would look pixelated. The text and photos you've taken on the MacBook Retina screen are incredible! This is where the computer excels. Pictures on websites don't seem to have the same clarity.
It will just be a matter of time before the internet catches up to the screen. The speed and power on this laptop are still of the same MacBook Pro caliber that you would expect. Although the flash storage of GB is a bit low, the use of iCloud and external HD's have made filled the voids. I have not simultaneously ran intense programs such as Final Cut Pro along with Photoshop so I can't comment on fan noise. I have used photo editing software as well as searching Safari and other programs and have not experienced any performance issues or noise.
One minor annoyance that I have noticed is when you are switching between screens, especially a screen with a lot of content, the refresh rate is slow. But you have to understand that there are millions of pixels that are being refreshed. Other than that, if you have some extra hefty change to spend this is a computer that will amaze your eyes! Well, I was unlucky and got the LG screen with retention. Other than that, best laptop I've ever had.
November 2, This is the best laptop I have ever used. Areas I want to see improved for the next generation is battery life, one more USB 3 port, and improved speaks as the internal one's are a step down from my old 17" at least to mine and a few friends ears. Intel will fix my other issues with this computer when Haswell is released next year. That is the integrated graphics is a bit slow to drive this high of a resolution display. It's not bad but it does slow sometimes, especially when using three monitors.
October 17, As Apple stated, this really is the best notebook I have ever owned. I have owned two previous 17" Macbook Pro machines and most recently a 13" Macbook Air. I loved the Air, but sorely missed the screen resolution of my 17". With the 17" now off the market, I debated getting a refurb or considering a non-retina. However, in the end I decided on this machine. The ability to ramp up the resolution when I need to is really fantastic.
When in Photoshop, I"ll run it at For everday use, I run it at the resolution. I find myself wanting a little more resolution than the default pixel doubled resolution which is why I chose to use scaled mode.
I realize I could actually override the settings all the way to , but that would just be silly. The apps that take advantage of the screen are gorgeous and I really don't have that much that doesn't. Safari also looks great for all my web browsing. The machine itself is beautiful. It's just one of those products you never get tired of using or looking at.
To me, having a computer that looks great and performs the same way is important. I do some design work, but my primary role is programming. I have a super powerful platform at my disposal for everything I need to do. Because I also do a lot of. Net development in my job, I find running a VMWare Virtual machine on this system is as good as it gets. This is the kind of performance I expected and am happy to have received with the machine.
The battery life is pretty good. It will run circles around some of my older machines. I would say I can go half a day with reasonable heavy usage. I'm still waiting for a notebook that a charge once at night, but that simply doesn't exist yet, or at-least not with this kind of power. All in all, however, I have found Apple does a great job with power management and I have never had an internal battery go bad before I ended up selling the notebook anyway I usually keep them years.
I know the big complain is expandability. In some ways I agree that there are limits here. However, I think Apple was really looking ahead and expects this to be somewhat of an early-adopters machine. When you think about it, my music and photos as well as videos are all in the cloud, so I don't consume a lot of internal storage. That is also why I opted to stick with the base gb SSD. In a world with 50gb free online storage accounts, YouTube, Picasa, Gmail and iTunes in the Cloud, there isn't a big compelling reason to have terabytes of space on the notebook.
All of my files are available to me and I have all the applications I need and use everyday. I even keep a 2. When I'm at home, my Time Machine is keeping everything backed up for me. I totally don't miss the optical drive. I considered it dead years ago and would much rather have a slimmer notebook. I have an external that is in my bag, but I don't even think I'm going to keep carrying it around anymore. I bought it about 4 years ago when I decided to remove the optical drive from my 17" machine to put an SSD in.
Thunderbolt is a bit expensive and without a lot of options at the moment, but it is definitely growing. And, considering this is a Pro machine I don't think it unreasonable to pay a little more for Thunderbolt drives, displays, etc.. You can even plug in ethernet, firewire, etc.. I mean, how often am I not on wireless or need a CD? What year is this again? Everything is online for us. I don't consider myself a gamer by any means, but I have been playing around with X-Plane 10 since it came out.
My Macbook Air was in no way able to handle that due to the Intel graphics, so upgrading to the m did have a little influence in my decision. Now, I can at-lease enjoy some decent gaming power when I'm stuck at holiday family events, etc Overall, I have to say that this is a fantastic machine.
If you are looking for a true desktop replacement mobile workstation without all the bulk and are willing to forgo the aging tech left behind with this new machine, you won't be disappointed. October 8, October 1, September 21, It's great, it replaced a big 17" macbook pro for me, and has done it well - better than I expected. The price doesn't matter do me, but I can see why it's a lot.
September 12, September 10, September 4, August 30, August 22, August 21, I'm going to preface my review by saying that the last computer I bought was the mid MacBook Pro non-unibody, Santa Rosa, base inch, for those who care for specifics. Speedwise, I don't really have anything complain about. In everyday use, it is very responsive.
I know people have complained about a noticeable lag in transitions and animations, and it definitely does exist, but I think it's very negligible in my opinion. I appreciate the bump up to USB 3. I don't really have any Thunderbolt accessories yet, but I do plan on picking up the Thunderbolt to GigE adapter you never know when Ethernet comes in handy. Adapters have always been part of the deal with MacBook Pros, from Mini-Displayport, DVI, etc, and this really is just an evolution of Apple's externalizing older functions.
I never really liked the older unibody MacBook Pros: they were both heavier and slightly larger than my older non-unibody, and I had issues with the cover glass being overly reflective. This update has addressed my concerns with the previous generations.
It is much thinner and has about the same footprint as my old MBP. Not a bad thing, just different. Battery life so far has been really good. I haven't put Steam onto this computer yet, so I don't have any heavy games on here. So far, I haven't had any problems with Mountain Lion's supposed battery life problems. I've gotten around 8 hours of light work web browsing, typing this review, a little bit of video watching on a charge.
The Retina display is great: it's clear, crisp, and bright. If you need more description, the best thing you can do is find a model to actually play with to see it for yourself. I got a Samsung panel versus the LG panel that some people get. The internet seems to believe that the Samsung panel is better, but I can't really say anything to disprove that. I'd hazard a guess that they're going to wait until the next major release of Office sometime next year to bring it up to date.
Judging from my old MBP, durability will be quite good. In terms of build quality, the machine should be able to last me for several years. My friend did drop my old MBP while it was in its sleeve onto the ground a year ago, and though the zipper dented the body, there were no issues with actual performance. However, the anodized aluminum will get scratched by sand and other things like that, but that's more cosmetic than anything. The only that worries me the lack of the cover glass over the display.
Only time will tell how the Retina display holds up to years of wear and tear. So, moral of the story, watch out for cosmetic issues: outside of throwing your computer, this machine and its internals should be fine. And now we come to expandability. Of course, like everyone else, this is an interesting point about the MacBook Pro with Retina display. In , Apple debuted a new trackpad that users could click anywhere on the surface.
Before that, trackpads had included left-click and right-click buttons underneath the touch-cursor portion. The third-generation MacBook Pro included an updated trackpad with a larger surface and pressure-sensitive haptics. Called the Force Touch trackpad, it replaced the mechanical clicking hinge with a haptic motor that approximates a click-through vibration. The trackpad doesn't click or operate without power since it has no moving parts.
Apple still ships trackpads with Force Touch built-in, but it isn't emphasized in macOS. The controversial fourth-generation MacBook Pro did more to change the keyboard than the butterfly switch — it also introduced the Touch Bar. The OLED strip replaced the function key row entirely, leading to many user complaints. The Touch Bar showed shortcut buttons based on the Mac's open and active application. Text suggestions, emoji, photo tools, and video timelines pop up depending on what a user is doing.
This coprocessor also handled full disk encryption and storing Touch ID data. Apple will likely remove the Touch Bar from the remaining devices as new models are released. The included ports are focused on convenience more than functionality. Apple's return to various port types comes after years of customers complaining about needing adapters to make any connection that wasn't USB to USB.
Apple also brought back the MagSafe charging port. The term "Retina" is used for Apple displays with a high enough pixel density to prevent individual pixels from being perceived at an average viewing distance. It also has a Hz ProMotion display with a variable refresh rate that shows content in its native frame rate. Both of these technologies help improve overall battery life when viewing certain content.
This means content will be easier to view in bright environments. The latest version, announced in , is MacOS Monterey. This operating system update brings new social features, Universal Control, and new cross-app functionality. Safari has been redesigned with a new tab system and changes to the address bar. Users can configure these changes based on preferences in the Preferences menu. FaceTime has a function called SharePlay for listening to music or watching movies together during a call.
Apple's professional laptop has seen many changes over the years, and one of the biggest arrived in late The machine abandoned Intel processors in favor of the M1. Apple controlling the entire hardware and software stack in the Mac line for the first time means big performance gains and improved battery life.
Apple says the inch MacBook Pro with M1 chip is up to 2. Security is also much improved due to the nature of having new custom system architecture on the market — no malware or adware will have yet been spotted for the product. They use Thunderbolt 4 ports and MagSafe 3 with fast charging capabilities.
Apple is expected to replace the existing inch M1 model with a inch M2 variant. The fourth-generation MacBook Pro was released in October , updating both the inch and inch models. The MacBook Pro hadn't been updated in years, and some pro users voiced their uneasiness about Apple's attention discrepancy between rapidly advancing mobile devices and the stagnating Mac.
However, the machine's significant updates proved more controversial than widely embraced. They were versatile but new to users who would need adapters or all new equipment to use the port. There was no more MagSafe , but all ports could power the laptop without the need for a proprietary cable. However, all eyes were on the new generation's keyboard, which had carried over from the inch MacBook.
Thinner keys with a butterfly mechanism and less space between them, a touch screen panel instead of a function row, and a giant trackpad all made this design futuristic and new. Through the years, the ports change mattered less as more users got USB accessories to match, but the keyboard didn't live up to Apple's hopes.
April of saw a report that said the butterfly keyboard was failing at up to twice the rate of the previous generations. Class-action lawsuits were filed, Apple updated the keyboard with membrane material to prevent foreign object ingress, and a final update to the keyboard in May changed out materials for stronger ones. Apple also announced a keyboard service program for all the affected MacBooks. These changes have seemed to reduce the need for repair of "sticky keys," but they still weren't enough for users expecting their devices to "just work.
The first revision to the fourth-generation MacBook Pro came in November , and along with it, a newly dubbed "Magic Keyboard. This inch model also included new spec updates to align it with the iMac Pro and increased the battery to the maximum allowed for plane travel, W.
In May , Apple released a inch update with a new Magic Keyboard, faster processors, and more storage. It also added Core i7 processors, USB 3. To further accommodate the thinning of the laptop, Apple added MagSafe 2, which had a thinner connector and port. FireWire and Ethernet were dropped to allow for the new ports, but users could still connect them via thunderbolt adapters. This laptop also lost some moving parts.
Apple dropped the disk drive and switched the hard drive to a solid-state drive. The design further removed user upgradeability by soldering in the memory and gluing in the battery. This generation saw more significant user-facing updates than the standard memory or screen changes. In , the laptops gained Thunderbolt 2, Iris graphics, The update, the last before the current generation, included all of the usual speed updates and some hardware changes.
That generation marked the Force Touch trackpad's debut, making for quieter and softer clicks and allowing for deep-press-triggered contextual menus. Apple announced the second-generation MacBook Pro during a press event in October A new design, dumping the old PowerBook chassis, sported a unibody aluminum enclosure with tapered edges, like the MacBook Air. The optical drive and ports were rearranged for the new body style: ports on the left and optical drive on the right. Apple changed ports and dropped FireWire , but the FireWire port remained.
This generation allowed users to change their battery out, which is useful for travel or switching in a spare. The battery only lasted about five hours on one charge, so buying an extra allowed the device to last closer to a full day. Apple added a glass surface trackpad with its new sleek aluminum case. Users could click the new trackpad anywhere, an upgrade over designated buttons below on the first-generation trackpad.
Later updates added inertial scrolling, similar to what iOS offered. Apple launched a larger inch variant in April. These were the first MacBooks with webcams. They also introduced the MagSafe connector. The process went without too many hitches, and it proved to be up to three times as fast as the PowerBook G4 it replaced.
Apple MacBook sales continue to grow, PC sales down. Developers can now apply to test the new Swift Playgrounds 4. Apple pulls the plug on macOS Server. At least nine Macs with M2 Apple Silicon chips are reportedly in development. Toggle navigation. AAPL:
