You won't notice it in the real world, but it's there, and that's progress. In comparison the MacBook Air is sloped from 3mm to 17mm and weights grams less, at roughly 1kg dead. The Air is also slightly wider. Only you will know if you are happy carrying the extra weight in your bag, but the difference is now a lot less than it used to be when the Air first came out and the MacBook Pro was the big and heavy one.
As before the MacBook Pro design is sealed shut - there are no real options for private upgrades, so we would suggest making sure you get the best specs to suit you and your growing needs rather than thinking about doing it later. If you do that you'll end up forking out for a brand new Mac, nice though that is except on the wallet. We always follow the rule of get the setup that you can afford at the top of your budget, as it will last you longer that way.
The MacBook Pro Retina displayis packed full of pixels. In real terms you get a maximum resolution of x - which is ppi - from the display, which is the very same as last year's model. The screen is almost like an enlarged inch equivalent of the Retina-flavoured iPad devices, such as the 9. In its MacBook Pro form it's lovely to enjoy. There is one difference to before, though, and that's time. A year in with the Retina display and the MacBook Pro doesn't have the issues with apps and jaggy views in some software that was an issue before.
Most major apps have upgraded, while the Mavericks operating system looks great. Even up close you will struggle to spot the gradients in fonts thanks to that crisp resolution. There's enough resolution, for example, for video editing at native p while leaving enough additional space around the preview for your editing tools. It's Pro by name and pro by nature. The main shift in the MacBook Pro is the interior architecture. Welcome Intel Haswell, which drives forth not significantly better performance, per se, but better power performance.
Intel's processor better graphics via Intel Iris and, the crux of it all, better battery life than ever before. Combined with Mavericks it means we've been getting a good day's worth of battery from a single charge and while the system doesn't last as long as the MacBook Air - something probably to do with the increased screen resolution the Pro has to power - it's nonetheless still very good. The inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is available with a 2. It's this top-spec model that we've been testing out for this review, as that's what Apple sent on over for the loan.
If you'll be chopping up masses of big files then that extra flash space might be more useful than you'd think, but it doesn't come in cheap. If you are happy to configure it further and have it delivered rather than just walking out of the shop there is an even beefier version which comes with a dual-core Intel Core i7 processor up to 2. We don't have any Thunderbolt 2 devices so will just have to take Apple's word on that for now, but it does mean you would be ready to output to a 4K display in the future.
Wi-Fi has also been boosted in the version. The latest It also means that you can be further away from the base station, handy if you like working on the sofa and your router isn't in your lounge. It's also incredibly handy if you are working a lot with streaming content as the transfer speeds are faster. As you know we don't benchmark here at Pocket-lint, there is no point boring you with performance percentages that are a fraction faster than last year's model - you'll never run both side-by-side in the real world anyway.
Instead we use products like real people, just as we did here. We found that our test MacBook Pro was nippy, handled graphics applications like video and picture editing well and did every job that we threw at it. It does what it sets out to do and feels like a pro bit of kit. The inch isn't as powerful as the inch model with its discrete graphics, but we get the feeling the world has moved on from demanding that a inch MacBook Pro is expected to be as powerful as the inch model.
Plus, this year's MacBook Pro costs a couple hundred pounds less than last year's. As with the Air, the Pro judiciously shifts everything upwards ever-so-slightly, adding slightly better components that result in a tangible performance boost, while keeping the best bits the screen, the design much the same. Even the reduced price tag is perfect. If you like the portability of the Air, but need more power, it's a solid option to consider.
If you're a professional video producer, the extra power and discreet graphics of the inch Pro will be a welcome upgrade. For those who need more processing power than an Ultrabook offers, the latest Pro 13" packs that punch yet it's as light and compact as an Ultrabook. However, the inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display will appeal to users who need a more powerful desktop-replacement system that can handle demanding tasks such as photo-editing or video presentations.
Evidently, the company was listening to its users back then. That is the recipe for our Editors' Choice winner for high-end ultraportable laptops. The crux really is likely to come down to how much travelling you do. If you are on the road without easy access to power then you should stick with the Air. If this is a laptop for the home and little else, you'll enjoy the power the Pro brings and the screen resolution too, knowing full well that a power socket is never that far away. The inch model, however, is where things begin to get really interesting.
Right now, the MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display is the best laptop money can buy.
