The Apple MacBook Pro ME662B/A 13inch 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor - Retina Display is the world's highest-resolution notebook display. The Apple MacBook Pro is as vivid as your imagination, offering you a vibrant, sharp Retina display with 4 million pixels in a design that's just 1.9cm thin and 1.62kg. The all-new MacBook Pro is built around flash storage for maximum performance and reliability, starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, and everything you do is lightning fast. The 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 provides you with a fast, smooth, realistic performance and drives enough power for intensive tasks such as rendering HD video and editing RAW files. Other features include two Thunderbolt ports, stereo speakers, dual mics, and built-in apps including FaceTime HD Camera, iPhoto, iMovie and more.
Apple MacBook Pro ME662B/A 13inch 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor - Retina Display
We wanted this MacBook Pro to have a screen as vivid as your imagination. A screen where everything you see is vibrant, detailed and sharp. With the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, we created the world’s highest-resolution notebook display. The only thing that even comes close? The super-compact 13-inch model. They’re two of a kind. And in a class all their own.
When you pack so many pixels into a display — over four million on the 13-inch model and over five million on the 15-inch model — 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. Text is pin sharp. A spectacular 2560x1600 resolution on the 13-inch MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880x1800 resolution on the 15-inch MacBook Pro let you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy.
More colour and contrast. Less glare.
The Retina display reduces glare up to 75 per cent while maintaining incredible colour and quality. In fact, it has a 29 per cent higher contrast ratio than a standard MacBook Pro display. Blacks are blacker. Whites are whiter. And everything in between is rich and vibrant. IPS technology gives you a wide, 178-degree view of everything on the screen, so you’ll see the difference at practically any angle. And you’re going to love what you see.
All-flash storage . It makes quicker work of everything.
When your goal is to build the high-performance notebook of the future, you begin at its foundation. For this MacBook Pro, that foundation was flash. Because when you build a notebook around an all-flash architecture, not only is everything more durable, reliable and battery efficient — everything is fast. Really, really fast.
There’s a reason they call it “flash”.
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, which gives you up to four times the performance of a traditional hard drive.1 When you use apps like Final Cut Pro or Aperture, you can perform even the most demanding tasks direct from your internal storage. And since the all-new MacBook Pro comes with up to 768GB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you, including large video and photo libraries. Flash doesn’t have any moving parts, which makes it incredibly durable and quiet. It also has the ability to stay in standby mode for up to a month. Whether it’s been 1 day or 30, this all-flash MacBook Pro will spring to life from wherever you left off.
The all-new MacBook Pro has more than just processing power. It has an incredible amount of battery power too. So you can do more than ever — all on a single charge.
A 7-hour battery life is impressive for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, top-of-the-line processors and graphics, and a super-slim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in 95-watt-hour battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time.3 Which means you can put your MacBook Pro to sleep, and it’ll come back on instantly — after a day, a week or even a month. With Power Nap coming this summer in OS X Mountain Lion, your MacBook Pro can 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 new mobile powerhouses.
With a 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. That means wherever you can take your camera, you can take Aperture and your entire digital photo studio too. Hyper-Threading technology, which enhances performance by letting each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously, is included in every model. And with speeds up to 2.9GHz and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6GHz, these processors are ready for just about anything.
Next-generation NVIDIA graphics
Graphics on the all-new MacBook Pro are so fast, smooth and realistic, you might just forget you’re looking at a computer screen.
Ports and Connections
Everything about the all-new MacBook Pro is high performance — even its I/O. Thunderbolt is the fastest, most versatile I/O available, and this notebook has two Thunderbolt ports. That’s a huge advantage when you need to connect to just about anything — external displays, RAID arrays, video capture devices, even FireWire peripherals and Gigabit Ethernet networks (adapter sold separately). Combine that with two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port and an SDXC card slot, and in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with the all-new MacBook Pro as its centrepiece.
Stay connected with the most advanced wireless technology.
Meet the ultimate mobile creative studio. With an emphasis on mobile. Equipped with the latest three-stream 802.11n Wi-Fi5 and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you’re free to unplug and still stay connected — to your network, to your wireless peripherals and to the world. And with AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your HDTV.
Audio & Visual
You haven’t heard it all until you’ve heard the speakers inside the 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 laboured painstakingly over the design to maximise 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.
Multi-Touch Trackpad and Backlit Keyboard
Touch and go go go.
In OS X, Multi-Touch is an essential part of how you interact with your Mac. Using realistic, intuitive gestures, you can switch between apps, navigate your content and get the most out of your desktop space. The all-new MacBook Pro features a Multi-Touch trackpad with a large, all-glass button surface. So you can tap, pinch, swipe and click away comfortably.
A brighter way to work.
Thin and light, this notebook is designed to go anywhere — including places with less-than-stellar lighting. A built-in sensor detects changes in ambient light and adjusts the keyboard brightness automatically. So you’re never left in the dark.
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.

We’ve updated Apple software to take advantage of the beautiful Retina display. OS X Lion apps — Safari, Mail, iCal, Address Book and more — as well as iPhoto, iMovie, iTunes, Aperture and Final Cut Pro have already been optimised, and updates to the other Apple apps are coming soon.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
