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.
When you pack so many pixels into a display — over 4 million on the 13-inch model and over 5 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 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13-inch MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880-by-1800 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.
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 takes all the capabilities of Multi-Touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downward 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 to not just see what’s happening on the screen, but to feel it.
With the new MacBook comes a whole new way to experience a trackpad. The Force Touch trackpad is engineered to deliver a responsive, uniform click no matter where you press the surface. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying and give you new ways to interact with your Mac. You can now use a Force click to enable new capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press on the trackpad. You’ll also experience haptic feedback — a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to what you see on the screen. These advanced capabilities work in addition to all the intuitive Multi-Touch gestures Mac users love. You’ll be more in touch with your Mac than ever before. Without lifting a finger.
Advance 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.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has the power to do even more amazing things. Fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processors let you make quick work of even the most complex tasks in professional apps like Final Cut Pro X, thanks to speeds up to 2.8GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache and Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.0GHz. And every model comes standard with 16GB of superfast memory. All of which means the 15-inch MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up, wherever your travels take you.
High performance graphics.
Flawless on screen 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.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro has a phenomenal display — with the graphics power to match. Its fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor features Iris Pro Graphics with 128MB of embedded memory, which accelerates demanding graphics tasks by acting as an ultrafast cache. For even more impressive graphics performance, choose the 15-inch model that combines the power of Iris Pro Graphics with the AMD Radeon R9 M370X. Thanks to 2GB of GDDR5 memory, you’ll get even better performance when playing high-resolution games, editing video in Final Cut Pro X or rendering images in pro graphics applications.
Long lasting battery.
up to 10-hours usage
The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display lasts up to 10 hours between charges. And the 15-inch model lasts up to nine hours. That’s an hour longer than each model lasted previously. And they deliver 12 hours and 9 hours of iTunes movie playback, respectively. 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 superslim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles.
Faster Flash Storage
Thanks to the superfast 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 speeds of up to 1.6GB/s — that’s twice as fast as the previous generation, letting you import huge photo libraries in no time flat.2 On the 15-inch model, you get up to 2.5 times faster flash storage3 — with up to 2.0GB/s throughput — that works with quad-core processors and high-performance graphics to make quick work of even the most demanding Final Cut Pro X editing tasks. And since these MacBook Pro models come with up to 1TB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you.4 In addition, flash has no moving parts, so it’s remarkably durable and quiet.
Powerful apps included.
Out of the box, MacBook Pro is already a document-creating, number-crunching, presentation-sharing, photo-editing, movie-making and music-producing powerhouse. That’s because it includes six powerful productivity and creativity apps: Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Photos, iMovie and GarageBand. 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.
