You've Never Seen Anything Like It. Because There's Never Been Anything Like It.
A groundbreaking Retina display. All-flash architecture. The fastest mobile processors. Remarkably thin and light 13in. and 15in. designs. Together, these features take the notebook to a place it’s never been. And they’ll do the same for everything you create with it.
We wanted a screen as vivid as your imagination. A screen where everything you see is vibrant, detailed, and sharp. With the 15in. MacBook Pro with Retina display, we created the world’s highest-resolution notebook. And the view on the supercompact 13in. model is just as impressive.
When you pack so many pixels into a display – over four million on the 13in. model and over five million on the 15in. 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 x 1600 resolution on the 13in. MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880 x 1800 resolution on the 15in. 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.
More Color and Contrast, Less Glare
The Retina display reduces glare up to 75% while maintaining incredible color and quality. In fact, it has a 29% 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°
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.
When your goal is to build the high-performance notebook of the future, you begin at its foundation. For MacBook Pro with Retina display, that foundation is 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 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. So you can import huge photo libraries into Aperture in no time flat. And on the 15in. model, flash storage combines with quad-core processors and high-performance discrete graphics to make quick work of even the most demanding editing tasks in Final Cut Pro. Since these MacBook Pro models come with up to 768GB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you. Flash doesn’t have any moving parts, which makes it superdurable and quiet. And flash storage is extremely energy efficient, which means your MacBook Pro also has the ability to stay in standby mode for up to a month, without plugging in. So whether it’s been one day or 30, your all-flash MacBook Pro will spring to life, right where you left off.
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.
Matching Power for Power
A seven-hour battery life is impressive 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 1000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time.
With Power Nap in OS X Mountain Lion, your MacBook Pro continues 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.
MacBook Pro with Retina display features third-generation Intel dual-core and quad-core processors. They’re the muscle behind the most powerful notebooks we’ve ever built.
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 3.0GHz and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7GHz, these processors are ready for just about anything.
The 15in. MacBook Pro with Retina display has the power to do even more amazing things. Third-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processors with a state-of-the-art 22-nanometer microarchitecture provide the fastest performance ever in a MacBook Pro. You can make quick work of even the most complex tasks in professional apps like Final Cut Pro, thanks to speeds up to 2.8GHz, up to 8MB of shared L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.8GHz. And the top-of-the-line model comes standard with 16GB of superfast 1600MHz memory. All of which means the 15in. MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up, wherever your travels take you.
These graphics are so fast, smooth, and realistic, you might just forget you’re looking at a computer screen.
The Power Behind the Pixels
The 13in. MacBook Pro with Retina display features Intel HD Graphics 4000 – perfect for 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 13in. MacBook Pro is small on size and big on performance.
The 15in. model has a phenomenal display – and a GPU to match. The NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor based on next-generation Kepler architecture with 1GB of dedicated video memory provides up to 60 percent faster graphics performance than any notebook we’ve ever made. And it delivers enough power to drive the amazing 5-million-pixel Retina display as well as two external displays. All while making the most graphics-intensive tasks – like rendering HD video and editing RAW photography – fast, easy, and incredibly fluid.
The Future of High-Speed Data Transfer – Ready to Use Today
Everything about the MacBook Pro with Retina display is high performance – even its I/O. Whether you choose the 13in. or the 15in. model, you’ll get two Thunderbolt ports – the fastest, most versatile I/O available. That’s a huge advantage when you need to connect to just about anything – external displays, RAID arrays, video capture devices, even FireWire peripherals (adapter sold separately) and Gigabit Ethernet networks (adapter sold separately). Combine that with two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an SDXC card slot, and in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centerpiece.
Stay Connected with Ultrafast Wireless Technology
Meet the ultimate mobile creative studio. With an emphasis on mobile. Equipped with the three-stream 802.11n 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. And with AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos, and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your HDTV.
Advanced Speaker Design – Your Notebook Never Sounded This Good
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 labored painstakingly over the design to maximize the quality of every decibel you hear.
Dual Mics – They’ll Hear You Loud and Clear
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.
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 MacBook Pro with Retina display 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, 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 in the dark.
Your Content – On All Your Devices
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.
Your Favorite Software Like You’ve Never Seen it Before
To take advantage of the beautiful Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion apps like Safari, Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and more – as well as other Apple apps including iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iTunes, Aperture, and Final Cut Pro – have already been optimized, and updates to other Apple apps are coming soon.
