Also known as: Apple 15" MacBook Pro ME664B/A With Retina DisplayLaptop Buyers Guide
A fully-featured laptop inside a sleek, sturdy aluminium shell, the MacBook Pro with Retina display is designed for ultimate performance and stunning visuals. Your high definition videos, photos and games will look even more brilliant on the sharp 15.4-inch Retina display. Complete with dedicated graphics, flash storage and a powerful Intel Quad Core i7 processor – even the most demanding applications will open and run in moments.
When you pack over 5 million pixels into a 15.4-inch display, the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. You can also see more of your high-resolution images on screen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy
Your new MacBook Pro will arrive with OS X Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion introduces innovative features including the all new Messages app, Notification Centre, system-wide Sharing, AirPlay Mirroring, Game Centre and the enhanced security of Gatekeeper. With iCloud built into the foundation of OS X, Mountain Lion makes it easier than ever to keep your content up to date across all your devices.
The MacBook Pro features a rapid 2.4GHz Intel Quad-Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory and a long-lasting 7 hour battery. The 256GB all-flash storage will allow you to store your photos, music and personal documents in the one place. Flash storage doesn’t have any moving parts, which means it’s more reliable and quiet. Lightning fast, durable, silent — qualities that make sense in a laptop tasked with keeping up with you. You can also connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled peripherals and go online while you’re out and about with AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi.
The FaceTime HD camera gives you 720p resolution — perfect for the brilliant LED-backlit display — along with improved low-light performance. You and your friends can make HD calls from one new MacBook Pro to another. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPhones or the new iPod touch.
For boosted graphics performance the new MacBook Pro features NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M dedicated graphics with 1GB of GDDR5 memory. Powerful enough for media and gaming, automatic switching with Intel’s HD Graphics 4000 processor means you can conserve power during lighter use.
With two Thunderbolt ports, you can daisy-chain devices, including your display, to create a fully fledged workstation. Two USB 3.0 ports let you connect your iPad, iPod, iPhone, digital cameras, and external hard drives.
The MacBook Pro also features an advanced trackpad with wonderfully intuitive Multi-Touch technology. You can flip through photos, enlarge text and adjust an image using just your fingers. Your hands have room to spread out on the full-size keyboard with crisp, responsive keys. And it’s illuminated so you can see what you’re typing in low-light settings. Navigation is simple and intuitive thanks to the multi-touch trackpad, which doubles as a button.
The SDXC card slot supports up to 64GB cards and makes it a snap to transfer all those photos to and from your MacBook Pro, so you can edit and share them on the spot.
iCloud iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents and more from whatever device you’re on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac too. And it works both ways — create a to-do list on your Mac and you can make edits to it on your iPhone.
Retina-Ready Software To take advantage of the beautiful Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion apps like Safari, Mail, Calendar, Contacts and more — as well as other Apple apps including iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iTunes, Aperture and Final Cut Pro — have already been optimised, and updates to other Apple apps are coming soon.
