Apple’s MacBook Pro device can compete really well with the very best ultra-books out there. With solid state drivers, high-quality Intel Core processors, and other components, the latest device is equipped to handle intensive apps just as easy as the Windows-based systems. This new MacBook Pro review will tell you more.
For this write up we will look at both the 13 and 15 inch models. Let’ start with the retina display. The 13-inch has over four million pixels, while the 15-inch has over five million to give stunning results. The resolution on the 13-inch is absolutely amazing at 2560-x-1600 and the 15-inch is 2880-x-1800. The text is incredibly sharp and will make it seem like you are reading documents, web pages and email from a printed page. There is also an IPS technology to give wider viewing angles at 178-degrees on screen.
The 13-inch has a dual-core fourth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor that will allow you to make the most of a digital photo studio from anywhere. Each model has Hyper-Threading technology to allow the cores to manage multiple tasks at the same time for enhanced performance. These processors can handle just about anything with speeds of up to 3.0GHz, Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.5GHz, and shared L3 cache of up to 4MB.
The 15‑inch MacBook Pro can do even more incredible things with the quad-core fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processors that provide ultra-fast performance. With speeds of up to 2.8GHz, Turbo Boost speeds of up to 4.0GHz, and shared 6MB L3 cache, even the most complicated tasks can be done quickly in professional apps. Each model has the standard superfast 16GB 1600MHz memory.
Intel Iris Graphics is added to the 13-inch MacBook Pro for it to handle everyday tasks and intensive creative apps. The 15-inch graphics are even more as Iris Pro is combined with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M. All of this is enhanced with GDDR5 memory (2GB).
Speaking of memory, the latest MacBook Pro has ultrafast flash storage. This type of storage is very energy efficient, allowing the device to remain in standby mode for as long as a month. This is advanced even further with the battery life that can last up to 9 hours on the 13-inch between charges, and up to 8 hours on the 15-inch.
Bluetooth 4.0 wireless and 802.11ac Wi‑Fi technology is added for you to unplug and stay connected. You are able to play videos, show off pictures, and enjoy music wirelessly on a widescreen through Apple TV and AirPlay.
A multi‑touch track-pad is added with a large glass button on the surface. This means you can swipe, tap, click, and pinch comfortably.
The latest MacBook Pro is built to go anywhere with its built-in sensor, amazing battery life, and other improved features. As you can see from this new MacBook Pro review, it’s one of the best computers on the market.
