    Apple MacBook Pro 15" Retina

    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 13‑inch and 15‑inch 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.

    Retina display. See the big picture. In never-before-seen detail.

    We wanted 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.

    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.

    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.

    The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has nearly two million more pixels than an HDTV. The 15-inch model has over three million more.

    Long-lasting battery. 7-hour charge, 30-day standby time.

    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 super-slim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time.

    The fastest mobile processors. Dual-core. Quad-core. Serious power.

    MacBook Pro with Retina display features the latest 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 15-inch 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-nanometre micro-architecture 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 as standard with 16GB of super-fast 1600MHz 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.

    Next-generation graphics. A flawless onscreen performance.

    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 13-inch 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 13-inch MacBook Pro is small on size and big on performance.

    The 15-inch 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 per cent faster graphics performance than any notebook we’ve ever made.4 And it delivers enough power to drive the amazing five-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.
