On October 22, 2013, Apple introduced its latest MacBook Pro line, featuring Retina displays, flash storage and Intel Iris Graphics.
With the popularity of the iPad and iPhone, it can sometimes be easy to overlook the need for a computer, but the MacBook Pros deliver a machine that will complement nearly any amount of iPad or iPhone use.
The retina displays feature over 4 million pixels on the 13‑inch model and over 5 million on the 15‑inch model to provide stunning results. By comparison, the 13-inch has almost two million more pixels than an HDTV, the 15-inch has three million more.
The pixel density is so high, your eyes can't discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism. A spectacular 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880-by-1800 resolution on the 15‑inch MacBook Pro let you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. And text is so sharp, you'll feel like you're reading email, web pages, and documents on a printed page.
With the latest-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 processor, the 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Retina display lets you take your most performance-hungry apps on the road. Hyper-Threading technology, which enhances performance by letting each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously, is included in every model. And with speeds up to 2.8GHz, shared L3 cache up to 4MB, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3GHz, these processors are ready for just about anything.
The 13‑inch MacBook Pro now lasts up to 9 hours between charges. That's impressive battery life for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, state-of-the-art processors and graphics, and a super-slim design, it's absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time.
The new PCIe-based flash storage adds a huge dimension to the speed equation for a laptop. It reads and writes faster, it's quieter and more durable and reliable than a spinning hard drive. It also helps to extend the battery life.
The MacBook Pro is equipped with 802.11ac Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology. With AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos, and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your widescreen TV. And when your MacBook Pro connects to an 802.11ac Wi‑Fi base station, such as AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, your wireless performance is up to 3x faster.
Thunderbolt is the most advanced and most versatile I/O technology there is. The new MacBook Pro features the latest version: Thunderbolt 2. It delivers twice the throughput, providing up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you're more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals and displays. You can connect massive amounts of storage and add a PCI expansion chassis. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 12 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.
Whether you choose the 13‑inch or 15‑inch model, you'll get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, and a headphone port. So in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centerpiece.
You haven't heard it all until you've heard the speakers inside MacBook Pro. For something so thin and light, the sound is huge. And with a wide dynamic range, optimal balance, and a crisp, expressive quality, these speakers might sound too good to be true. That's because we labored painstakingly over the design to maximize the quality of every decibel you hear.
Dual built-in microphones are great for when you want to be heard. If you're making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice - instead of the noise around you.
Out of the box, MacBook Pro is already a document-creating, presentation-sharing, number-crunching, photo-editing, movie-making, and music-producing powerhouse. That's because it includes six powerful productivity and creativity apps: Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand.7 Not to mention all the other incredible apps, including Safari, Mail, and iBooks, which are perfect for the things you want to do and the things you need to do. And, of course, there are thousands more apps to discover at the Mac App Store.
