A spectacular display is just the beginning.
A groundbreaking Retina display. A new force-sensing trackpad. All-flash architecture. Powerful dual-core and quad-core Intel processors. Together, these features take the notebook to a new level of performance. And they will do the same for you in everything you create.
Retina display. Multimillion-pixel view.
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. 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. And text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading email, web pages and documents on a printed page.
The Retina display reduces glare while maintaining incredible colour and quality. Its high contrast ratio results in blacker blacks and whiter whites. 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.
The Force Touch trackpad. Press a little deeper, do a lot more.
With Multi-Touch in OS X, you can use realistic gestures like swiping or pinching to switch between apps, navigate your content, and get the most out of your desktop space.
The new Force Touch trackpad on the 13-inch model takes all the capabilities of Multi-Touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downwards pressure you apply. This lets you have a deeper connection to your content, bringing more functionality to your fingertip. It also introduces haptic feedback to MacBook Pro - allowing you not just to see what’s happening on the screen, but to feel it.
Advanced Intel mobile processors. Dual-core. Quad-core. Serious power.
With the fifth-generation 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 your entire digital photo studio. Hyper-Threading technology, which enhances performance by letting each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously, is included in every model. And with speeds up to 3.1GHz, shared L3 cache up to 4MB and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.4GHz, these processors are ready for just about anything.
High-performance graphics. A flawless onscreen performance.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display features Intel Iris Graphics 6100 to handle both everyday tasks and graphics-intensive creative apps. Scroll through large photo albums with ease. Play games with amazing detail. Even connect an external display or two. It’s just another way this 13-inch MacBook Pro is small on size but big on performance.
Long-lasting battery. Up to a 10 hour charge.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro lasts up to 10 hours between charges, an hour longer than previously. That’s impressive battery life for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high–resolution display, state-of-the-art processors and graphics, and a super-slim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles.
Ultra-fast all-flash storage. There's a reason they call it "flash".
Thanks to the super-fast read and write performance of the PCle-based flash storage, you’ll notice a difference in whatever you do. Starting up is really fast, apps launch quickly, and navigating the desktop feels fluid and responsive. The 13-inch model features flash storage that’s two times faster than the previous generation, letting you import huge photo libraries in no time flat.2 And since these MacBook Pro models come with up to 1TB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you.*3 In addition, flash has no moving parts, so it’s super-durable and quiet.
802.11ac Wi-Fi. The definition of fast.
Meet the ultimate mobile creative studio. With an emphasis on mobile. Equipped with 802.11ac Wi-Fi 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. With AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your widescreen TV. And when your MacBook Pro connects to an 802.11ac Wi-Fi base station, such as AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, your wireless performance is up to 3x faster.*4
Thunderbolt 2. The most advanced I/O.
Fast and versatile, Thunderbolt 2 provides up to 20 Gbps of bandwidth to each external device. So you’re more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals and displays. You can connect massive amounts of storage and add a PCI expansion chassis. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 12 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.
Whether you choose the 13-inch or 15-inch model, you’ll get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot and a headphone port. So in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centrepiece.
Audio and Visual.
You haven’t heard it all until you’ve heard the speakers inside 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.
Thin and light, MacBook Pro 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 and display brightness automatically. So you’re never left in the dark.
iCloud. Everything in need. Anywhere you need it.
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.*5
Powerful apps included. Get straight to work. And play.
Out of the box, MacBook Pro is already a document-creating, number-crunching, presentation-sharing, photo-editing, movie-making, music-producing powerhouse. That’s because it includes six powerful productivity and creativity apps: Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand - all of which have been beautifully updated for OS X Yosemite.*6 Not to mention all the other incredible apps, including Safari, Mail and iBooks, which are perfect for the things you want to do and the things you need to do. And, of course, there are thousands more apps to discover at the Mac App Store.
