The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is the ideal notebook for enthusiasts and professionals looking for fast performance in a super-compact and light design. It features a stunning Retina display with over 4 million pixels, ultra-fast all-flash architecture, and the latest dual-core Intel processors.
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 2.6GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory and a long-lasting 7 hour battery.
Flash-based storage, which is up to four times faster than a traditional hard drive. You’ll notice a difference in whatever you do — starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid and responsive. It’s all thanks to flash storage.
At 2560 by 1600 pixels and with 227 pixels per inch, it has four times the pixels of the current generation 15-inch MacBook Pro. Nearly two times the resolution of an HDTV, making text look razor sharp and images extra crisp. The new design minimizes glare while delivering incredible contrast and colour. In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology provides a 178-degree viewing angle.
For boosted graphics performance the new MacBook Pro with Retina display features Intel’s HD Graphics 4000 processor which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. Built for 60% faster performance than previous models – you’ll experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive and truer to life.
The 720p FaceTime HD camera is perfect for the brilliant retina display. You and your friends can make video calls to any iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac with a FaceTime HD camera.
Connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled peripherals and go online while you’re out and about with the latest three-stream 802.11n Wi-Fi. With two Thunderbolt ports, you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display, to create a fully-fledged workstation. Two USB 3.0 ports which are up to 10 times faster and backward compatible with USB 2.0. An HDMI port for easy connectivity to HDTVs and projectors.
The improved, powerful speakers have higher fidelity and a wide dynamic range. The dual microphones have also been improved to use an adaptive beam-forming algorithm to reduce background noise and help you come across loud and clear when making FaceTime calls or using Dictation.
A long lasting battery life of up to 7 hours and 30-day standby time, so you can do more than ever, all in one single charge. The all new Power Nap mode in OS X Mountain Lion, allows your MacBook Pro to continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while it’s asleep. And when it’s connected to a power source, it can download software updates and make backups with Time Machine. So the next time you open your notebook, everything’s right there waiting for you.
The MacBook Pro with Retina display 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.
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.
