Some customer reviews of Apple MacBook Pro 13 inches ME865B/A

Most helpful reviews

James, Gosport Often on the move

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This Macbook is absolutely great. I haven't put it down since I got it, only using my poor poor old Win8 laptop brick to refer to old emails and use MS Office until I get Office for Mac. It is so light, and so well built, just that gives much reassurance to me. The built in Migration Assistant to transfer data from your old PC is great and very useful top prevent need for USB sticks or burning CDs.
Bad points:
Nothing much. If you have a lot of data to transfer from your old PC via the Migration Assistant, it may take some time (it took 17 hours to transfer 64 GB!).
I can't transfer my old email history from my Win8 PC that uses Windows Live Mail and so will have to investigate how to get around this.

Manufacturer's Description

The new Apple MacBook Pro ME865B/A Retina 13" Laptop comes with the stunning new Retina display, promising the clearest visuals you could hope for to match this laptop’s outstanding performance.

Driven by a super fast 4th generation Intel® i5 processor and running the latest Mac OS X Mavericks operating system, you can enjoy seamless computing and lightning fast operating speeds.

Retina display

The unique Retina display has 5.1 million pixels and delivers remarkably vivid and detailed images. This 13” LED display offers a 2560 × 1600 resolution, revealing more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. The new Retina display also delivers a wide viewing angle thanks to IPS technology, reduced glare and formidable colours. To compliment this great display, the new MacBook Pro ME865B/A comes with Intel Iris Pro graphics processor for brilliantly fluid images.

Flash storage

Building from the foundations up, this MacBook Pro uses flash at its roots. This makes it more durable, reliable and efficient, and above all, exceptionally fast.

With 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, you have high-performance storage at your disposal.


This impressive laptop also sports two of Apple’s innovative, blisteringly fast Thunderbolt 2 ports, which offer input/output speeds which, at up to 10Gbps, are more than 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and 12 times faster than FireWire 800. It can deliver support for video and eight-channel audio and easily hook up with HDMI-compatible devices via an adapter. Maverick OS X Mavericks offers so much with full screen apps through the Launchpad desktop, AirDrop which allows you to share files wirelessly without the need for WiFi, and Version, which takes screenshots of your documents, showing you different versions of the document as it is has progressed.


When you are not making the most of this laptop’s graphics for work, you can use it to chat on the internet via the HD webcam, or to surf your favourite sites. With WiFi connectivity all you need is a wireless hotspot and the web is yours to enjoy.

In addition to all this, the Apple MacBook Pro ME865B/A Retina 13" Laptop offers super fast start up, a remarkable battery life of up to 9 hours, an effortless multi-touch trackpad and many more great Mac features you’ll enjoy discovering!
