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.
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 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.
Click and continue to press on the trackpad to enable new capabilities, like looking up a word’s definition, previewing a file in the Finder, or creating a new Calendar event when you force click a date in the text of an email.
Gradually add pressure to the trackpad to vary the speed with which you fast-forward through a QuickTime film or zoom in on a location in Maps.
Press lightly for a thin stroke or harder for a thick one — just as you would with a pen or stylus — when marking up a Mail attachment or signing your name on a form with your fingertip.
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 as standard with 16GB of super-fast 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.
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 ultra-fast 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.
The 13‑inch MacBook Pro lasts up to 10 hours between charges. And the 15‑inch model lasts up to 9 hours. That’s an hour longer than previously for each model. And they deliver 12 hours and 9 hours of iTunes film 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 super-slim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles.
The Definition of Fast
You get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. So in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centrepiece.
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.
Facetime HD Camera
Make your point with greater clarity. Centred just above the widescreen Retina display on MacBook Pro is an advanced FaceTime HD camera, with an image sensor that produces accurate colours and reduced image noise even in low light. The sophisticated image processor produces sharper images and reduced motion blur. And the face-detection feature automatically adjusts exposure and white balance to complement your face and skin tone, so you always look your best — no matter what lighting is behind 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.
