Apple Macbook 3.1 Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
Not an Apple fan - though I like the iPhone, the iPodTouch and the macbook - this notebook has (and still) served me right. I use it as a front end to our work HP mainframe, when traveling and for simply multimedia works. I have thought many times of upgrading it to the latest model of this series, but in the end, this macbook still holds its performance and yet to let me down. Would I buy another macbook in the future? The answer is a definitive YES.

Apple's MacBook Pro 13 is essentially the older 13-inch MacBook aluminum MaBook system redesigned with some of the features found in the larger MacBook Pros. This is for the most part a benefit to consumers as the price tag for the entry has remained the same at $1199. The aluminum body provide it with a very stylish and durable exterior. This combined with its solid performance and features make it a great laptop for those looking for a highly portable but fully featured laptop.

At the end of last year, Apple updated its Macbook range of laptops, giving them a shiny new aluminium design so they looked very similar to the company’s more expensive Macbook Pro models. The new design was attractive but the new models were considerably more expensive than the original white plastic ones. Amid the recession, Apple decided to keep the old white plastic Macbook on sale as well, in order to provide a less expensive alternative. A welcome update that improves performance, battery life and value.

Apple MacBook Pro 13 inch
Source: Star Techcentral English
Small but mighty. The 13in Macbook Pro is certainly a very solidly designed notebook that proves it has more than just looks. Small and portable, it makes for a great all around package for web surfing, video-editing and photo management. The most notable overall improvement to the new Macbook Pro is its long-lasting battery life, which significantly increases its usability when you’re out travelling and saves you the trouble of having to charge every so often. While minor, the inclusion of a backlit keyboard, SD card slot and Firewire are fine additions that make the overall experience more enjoyable.

90% Apple MacBook Pro 13in – June 2009 release
Source: Reg Hardware English
Although the unibody design is sleek and attractive, the original Aluminium MacBook definitely looked over-priced when compared to its white plastic counterpart. Apple has clearly acknowledged that mistake with this update, as the improved performance, battery life and lower pricing certainly offer better value for money. The £899 model will probably be the big seller, but both models will satisfy the clear demand from Mac fans for a 13in addition to the MacBook Pro range.

What an update! The new features and benefits that were introduced back in January for the top-of-the-range 17-inch model have filtered down throughout the MacBook Pro range (a line-up that also now includes the newly promoted 13-inch unibody MacBook). Yet prices have gone down, making the new MacBook Pros excellent value for money. Suffice to say, a solid performance increase coupled with a significant price drop can only be welcomed.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro takes an already excellent machine and moves it a step further along. It satisfies the cries of those who last time around lamented the loss of FireWire. In its place we now have a non-replaceable battery, which no doubt will be a concern for some. But overall, Apple are continuing a great trend with their MacBook Pro line. The quality of build is excellent, little details like the external battery LEDs and the pulsing sleep indicator bring a touch of class. Sure, you pay more for a Mac than you would for the same hardware in a PC, but you get a lot for it and we think it is worth every penny.

Mac-haters will no doubt point out that there are cheaper Windows laptops available – not to mention countless Windows netbooks – but that’s missing the point. Apple’s intention with the MacBook is to offer a laptop powerful enough to handle a spot of video-editing and other multimedia work, at a price that will appeal to consumers. On that score it succeeds. Admittedly, the redesigned 13in MacBook Pro looks mighty tempting if you’ve got the extra spare cash, but the MacBook remains an attractive entry-level Mac OS X system.

  Non-user replaceable battery aside, it's difficult to find fault with the new 13in MacBook Pro. All the things that made it great in the first place remain, but they've been joined by highly desirable features like the FireWire port, SD card reader and the now standard backlit keyboard. Add-in outstanding battery life, a faster CPU and a slightly more affordable price and you've got a package well deserving of a Recommended Award.

  If you dashed to the Apple Store to snatch one of the first unibody MacBooks, chances are you're feeling rather sheepish at the moment. With typical disdain for its adoring, early-adopter fans, Apple has taken its MacBook, added the features that owners have been moaning about for months, and dropped the price. The result is the MacBook Pro 13. Beautifully made, fast and with great battery life, this is the best laptop Apple has produced for ages

90% Apple MacBook Pro 13in (Mid-2009) review
Source: PC Advisor English
When we reviewed the aluminum MacBook back in October 2008, those MacBooks posted performance scores that were very similar to the 15in MacBook Pro that was also released in October 2008. At that time, the differences between the MacBook and MacBook Pro boiled down to features. Now, with the new MacBook Pro line-up, the features on Apple's latest 13in aluminum laptops have been brought up to equal those found on the new 15in MacBook Pros. With its lower price, the return of FireWire, longer battery life, better looking display and a new built-in SD Card slot that you can boot from, the newest member of the MacBook Pro makes an impressive debut.

MacBook Pros (13-inch and 15-inch, Mid 2009) Review
Source: Slashgear English
  With the range of configuration options already on offer, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a more adaptable 15-inch MacBook Pro in future. At least a paid ExpressCard option would mean that users committed to the format could still keep the notebook on their shortlist. As it stands, like the 13-inch model it’s a usable, attractive and undeniably appealing laptop, with a great display, admirable performance and an OS that not only works well now but that’s set to improve once again when Snow Leopard arrives. Let’s just hope that for their next generation Apple decides to reconnect with the minority users that, in many cases, have been its most vocal advocates.

MacBook Pro (mid 2009) in-depth impressions
Source: Engadget English
The screen's way nicer. Apple lists the specific improvement as a 60 percent higher color gamut, but unless you're getting in there with a colorimeter and a monocle what you'll really notice is that Apple's finally shipping a mainstream 13-inch laptop with a viewing angle wider than a pencil. Compared to the disappointing MacBook screens we've seen in the past, the 13-inch Pro display is quite impressive -- we'd say it's roughly equivalent to the panel in the 15, and slightly better than the panel in the first-gen MacBook Air we have on hand. Of course, you're still stuck with that mirror-like gloss finish, but at this size and price point you don't have a lot of matte options regardless of manufacturer.

  The new 13-inch MacBook Pro has many strengths that make it a good notebook you should consider buying. It gets excellent battery life while running OS X, it can game on integrated graphics, its screen looks excellent, and it has fantastic build quality. With that said its all-aluminum design causes heat to be quickly transmitting into your skin acting as a huge heatsink, driver support inside Windows isn't the best, and the sharp edges of the palmrest can be painful to lean your wrists across. For its intended market most people won't care about the Window's driver problems and the substantial increase in battery life from the previous model is worth the internal battery. Overall if you can get past some of its design quirks it is a great notebook with a feature set that is hard to beat.

  There are still a few items on our 13-inch MacBook Pro wish list -- a matte screen, mobile broadband options and a Blu-ray drive, for example -- but Apple has made some significant additions. By offering more features for less money, the 13-inch Pro remains one of the most universally useful laptops available.

Apple’s latest thin-and-light notebook features strong graphics performance, a stunning display, and more than 6 hours of battery life. Unlike its 17-inch sibling, the 13-inch MacBook Pro does not sweep its weight class in every category. There are cheaper notebooks with weaker performance and much longer battery life, for instance, as well as similarly priced systems with slightly better graphics punch but shorter battery life. Nevertheless, the $1,199 MacBook Pro offers the best combination of performance, endurance, and smart software.

  Radically overhauled last year, Apple's MacBook line of laptops moved to aluminum construction, edge-to-edge glass over LED displays, and oversize multitouch trackpads (with the exception of the lone $999 white plastic model). The latest round of updates is more of a refinement than another revolution, but it adds some much-sought-after features, while lowering prices on many configurations. Previously known as the MacBook, Apple's basic 13-inch aluminum unibody laptop has been promoted to the "Pro" series, all while adding features and cutting the base price.

  After all the whining, the bickering, and the constant remarks about how Windows-based laptops have this and that and cost so much less, Apple, a company known to make its own rules, is finally letting down its guard. The lovable MacBook Pro 13-inch (now with the "Pro" moniker) has brought back the FireWire port, lowered its price, and for the first time in the company's history, added the elusive SecureDigital (SD) slot. Bringing in an SD slot and bringing back the FireWire port—while also lowering prices—eliminated Apple's weakest links in the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Add bigger, better battery life and you've got yourself a winner.

Add the ability to easily swap between Mac OS X and Windows, and you have a unique and flexible laptop that packs a lot of versatility for a thin-and-light notebook.

Die „neue“ Version des Apple MacBook Pro 13“ ist eine runde Sache und mit Abstrichen eignet sich das MacBook auch zum Spielen. Dabei trübt nicht die Hardware den Gesamteindruck, sondern die Außentemperatur des Gerätes und die Lautstärke des Lüfters. Ein weiterer Punkt ist, dass das weiße MacBook technisch identisch mit dem MacBook Pro ist, jedoch einen knapp 200€ günstigeren Preis hat.

Apple products tend to be tough to give a conclusion on. There’s the style factor, the (lack of) value factor, the fanboy factor, the OS X factor (for Macs), etc. Macs are divisive products—the people who use them love them, but for every person that loves a Mac there’s two more that wish all things Apple would burn in hell. So lets start with the easier part of the conclusion: if you need an OS X portable and think the MBP15 is too large, the 13” MacBook Pro is the one to get.

Apple's 2010 revision of the MacBook Pro 13 falls short of what the company did for its larger siblings. Performance lags behind because of the dated Core 2 Duo processor. It only makes sense to get this current model if you need the long battery life in a compact form that includes an optical drive and durable design. The price is a bit high for the performance and I would really recommend holding off until Apple finally brings the Core i3 processor to it.

The MacBook is a powerful laptop for its size, both in terms of processing power and graphics power. The RAM is a bummer, but generally not a deal-breaker. The MacBook is more expensive than most PC laptops of similar size, but it should be. Most 13.3 inch PC laptops are inferior in performance, display quality and overall build quality. Those few that are similar to the MacBook in these categories are typically no less expensive.

The mid-2010 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh represents a welcome upgrade for Apple's entry-level MacBook Pros, but retaining the Intel Core 2 Duo processors (for whatever reason) makes it a little underwhelming. We hope the dispute that kept the Core i-series chips out of this revision is quickly resolved, so the entire MacBook Pro range can leave behind the Core 2 Duos with the next release.

Thanks to its stellar industrial design, superior ergonomics, and above-average performance and battery life, the 13-inch MacBook ($999) is a compelling buy. Both price- and performance-wise, this notebook falls between Windows-based competitors like the ASUS U30Jc ($899) and Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 ($1,049), but beats both in terms of endurance. The main question is whether you’ll want to spend an extra $200 on the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which has an SD Card slot, backlit keyboard, more RAM, and a sleeker aluminum chassis. If you can live without these amenities, the new MacBook is a very good value.

70% MacBook, 2010
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
If you want Mac OS (and we can't blame you), and are on a budget, the MacBook is Apple's most affordable notebook. It's attractive, has a colorful and bright LED backlit display that's a great improvement over pre-unibody MacBook models and the updated graphics give the machine enough punch for light gaming. It's a fast and responsive machine whether running Windows 7 or Mac OS X, and the multi-touch trackpad is superb. If you're not wed to Mac OS, there are certainly compelling Windows laptops in the same price range with better specs, but few have the Mac's build quality. We do live in terror of the pure white finish that's scratchable and can stain. If you're rough on your computers, the MacBook unibody won't likely stay glossy and pretty for long. It is fairly impervious to dents and it is easy to wipe and clean though. Still, we wish Apple would find a way to toughen up the finish or move on to another one altogether (old black macbook, we miss you). Our advice? If you can afford $200 more, get the 13" MacBook Pro. You get so much more for that small sum including a durable metal casing, twice the RAM, a backlit keyboard, FireWire 800 and an SD card slot. Heck, upgrading the MacBook the RAM to 4 gigs alone will cost your around $120. The only drawback with the Pro version is the heat transfer through the bottom and to your lap-- it gets very hot while the non-Pro model stays cool.

Unless you genuinely see a need for extra speed and don’t want to step up to a heavier 15in model, you’ll be just as happy with the 2.4GHz model. Put the considerable saving of £250 towards peripherals, an extended warranty or virtualisation software, and also bear in mind that Apple doesn’t bundle any office software even at this price. Otherwise the 13in MacBook Pro’s battery life under light use is an attractive proposition that will see you through the working day.

Source: T3 English
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is a fantastic laptop with better graphics performance than ever, but by opting for the older CPU’s, the 13-inch version isn’t the significant upgrade we wanted. At £1250, it's hard to recommend when you can get the regular 13-inch MacBook for £816, OK it isn't anywhere near as powerful, but is far better value. Alternatively if you stretch your budget to £1500, you can get the excellent 15-inch version instread.

The 2009 version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro was one of our favorite laptops, providing a great combination of design, performance, and battery life in a thin chassis. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro uses a faster version of last year's processor, but a graphics chip upgrade and better battery life give it more value for the same price.

By changing a few key components and optimizing them for its software, Apple has managed to once again drastically improve the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Not only does it perform much better than the previous version, its battery life has seen an impressive boost. If you’re looking to save a little money, the ASUS U30Jc-1A ($899), which has automatic switchable graphics, offers similar performance, but 30 minutes less battery life and a heavier chassis. Overall, though, the $1,199 13-inch MacBook Pro offers the best combination of performance, endurance, design, and smart software.

If you already have the previous 13in Apple MacBook Pro, there's not a lot of reason to upgrade unless you simply must have the newest version of everything. The changes to the 13in line-up are mostly to do with improved graphics and battery life, and they aren't all that different from the year before - and it's somewhat hard to justify the £1,249 model based only on its larger hard drive and slightly faster processor, which didn't translate to much difference in our tests. To get the most from the new generation of MacBook Pros, you'll need to step up to the larger sizes, which take advantage of the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and their own graphics improvements.

At first glance, you may not notice anything different about Apple’s latest line of MacBook Pros, introduced in April 2010. The new models, which feature 13-, 15- and 17-inch screens, sport the same sleek, minimalist design, the same keyboard, and the same touch pad as the previous iteration. Apple takes what was already good and makes it even better, with the inclusion of a slightly better processor, improved graphics, and unbeatable battery life.

Review: Apple's Thunderbolt MacBook Pro
Source: ITNews Australia English
If you’re looking for a portable workstation, it isn’t the winner it could have been; we’d avoid running intensive apps with it on your lap, for example. Of the three sizes, however, it holds the widest appeal. There’s something about paying less than $2000 for such an impressive piece of hardware that makes it feel like the best value of all the new MacBook Pros.

Source: PC Advisor English
The MacBook Pro 13in (Early 2011) is very much a swings-and-roundabouts revision to the smallest of Apple’s metal-bodied notebook line. Overall performance is higher – by exactly 15% in our WorldBench 6 test – but graphics performance and battery life seem to have suffered and are below last year’s model. Other running changes such as webcam and SDXC card slot, and the faster SATA bus, are immediately useful; but the Thunderbolt port is more a futureproofing addition until Thunderbolt devices eventually become available.

All in all, the new MacBook Pro impressed us on many fronts, not just its performance. It’s got a great-looking design, has one of the sturdiest chassis we’ve seen, a fantastic-looking display, and a keyboard and trackpad that are a pleasure to use. We’re also impressed that the cost of the unit we looked at is competitive with its similarly-configured Windows brethren.

Apple's 2011 Macbook Pro laptops retain the sleek, beautifully engineered aluminium bodies and excellent screens of their predecessors, but this new model leaves a lot to be desired. Our recommendation would be that the big screen of the 15in model makes it a better choice for films and games, while the cheaper, less-powerful 13in model is better for less power-hungry users. This model in-between is a bit of a disappointment.

So, here we have it, the MacBook Pro 2011, 13.3 inch! The Macbook Air is also available at this screen size. While the Pro can't rival the Air's weight or slim line, it will stand or fall on the muscle afforded by its components. A high-performance processor, irreproachable finish, excellent battery life, good audio, that's what you're getting with this MacBook Pro. The only area where it really suffers is in gaming.

For as little attention as the 2011 MacBook Pro launch was given by Apple, there sure is a lot to talk about. The advantages are numerous. With the 13-inch MacBook Pro, under OS X at least, there simply aren't any downsides. You get much better CPU performance over the previous generation. In fact, the new 13 can outperform last year's 15 thanks to Sandy Bridge.

It’s not quite the tiny workstation it could have been then, but use it more as an everyday laptop with a bit of raw power and we really can’t see anything else not to like about the MacBook Pro 13in. We'd lean towards the cheaper £999 model out of the two, as its Core i5 processor and 320GB hard disk are easily outweighed by the £300 saving. And that combination of battery life and performance is something very few competitors can even hope to match while keeping the design so sleek. It’s an impressive slice of engineering.

Apple's MacBook Pro 13 certainly made some major performance changes in their 2011 refresh. With the new Core i5 processor, this is one of the fastest 13-inch laptops available on the market. This combined with Apple's outstanding battery life and excellent design make this a great update.

One longstanding feature of Apple's laptops that we're fond of is the magnetic MagSafe connector on the power adapter. If someone trips over it then it falls away harmlessly, rather than dragging the laptop to the floor or wrenching itself free, preventing damage to both the laptop and the connector. Apple refuses to license the MagSafe design though so car and airline power adapters are hard to come by. There's also no support for more specialised hardware features, such as biometric or smartcard security hardware, Blu-ray writers or docking stations. The one year warranty doesn't provide on-site service. The optional AppleCare two year extended warranty doesn't include on-site service either, but it does at least provide international coverage.

There’s little to complain about here. We didn’t get a Blu-ray drive (again), but we didn’t really expect one. The stated battery time is down from ten to seven hours, but much of this is due to Apple’s new testing procedures, which better reflect real-world use. Actual battery life is on a par with the previous generation, and remains enough for a full day’s mains-free computing. Like all Macs, they’re not cheap, but at £999, the entry-level model is cheaper than its predecessor and the more powerful £1,299 notebook is only a little more expensive.

Source: PC Mag English
The littlest MacBook Pro may be the most desirable laptop from a design perspective, but I'll be the first to admit that I didn't have much respect for its brains until now. Intel's latest Sandy-Bridge (now known as second-gen Core processors) architecture was the jolt the Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Thunderbolt) needed to boost pure processing power to unprecedented highs. Furthermore, it ships with a pair of new technologies in Thunderbolt and Facetime HD, though I won't get too excited about the former until compatible peripherals ships. The 13-inch MacBook Pro will be Apple's best selling laptop despite what I'm about to say next: For a $1,500 laptop, I would have liked to see a higher resolution and bigger spike in graphics power, or even a bigger battery. Because I can't help but glance over at the Asus U41JF-A1—the Editors' Choice in this category—and notice it has a graphic switching technology, an 8-hour (84WH) battery, and $900 price tag.

At 2.3 lb, the 13? MacBook Air is a hair over half the weight of the 13? MacBook Pro, which weighs in at 4.6 pounds. That’s still a pretty light computer and you might find yourself saying ‘it’s not ‘hat bad’ when you check it out at a store, but it can really weigh on you if you’re a highly mobile user.

Here’s what I don’t like about the latest 13in MacBook Pro: it’s so very, very expensive. I can forgive the shared-memory graphics and the lack of USB ports, perhaps also the fairly average processor performance, and I could even get used to the small display, but £999? For that kind of money, it had better be the best bloody entry-level notebook computer in the world. The problem is that it is. Thank you for listening, m’ lud. Jailer, take me down.

Other than a relatively small hard drive, it’s difficult to find fault with the entry-level Apple MacBook Pro 13in – a powerful, versatile and well-constructed laptop for work and play. One standout feature for all Macs is that you can now turn them into dual-boot systems with both Mac OS X and Windows (or Linux).

65% Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Late 2011) Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Late 2011 model replaces the earlier MacBook Pro 13-inch for the same price of Rs.84,900, while the ‘cheaper’ one with a 2.4GHz Core i5 CPU retails for Rs.69,900. Considering a little more money can fetch your the 15-inch model that’s also a lot more powerful, the 13-inch feels quite expensive. The few things it has going for it over its elder siblings is the better battery life and the fact that it’s more portable. Mind you, it’s still quite a heavy little fellow. If you want a fully-featured, portable MacBook, then the 13 incher is the way to go, else you can't really go wrong with the 15 incher.

The Apple MacBook Pro 13in (Late 2011) looks great and offers the level of performance that you'd expect from an Apple device. Boot Camp means that you can install Windows 7 alongside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, although you'll need to buy Windows first (from around £70).

The late 2011 update to the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro is a mild refresh, but definitely a welcome one. It comes soon after a massive upgrade at the beginning of 2011, and the prices haven't changed, so we've no cause for complaint.

Not much else can be said about the 2011 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh. It is faster, packs Thunderbolt and has a larger hard drive. If you are after a lighter laptop, with plentiful power, this is the one to go for. It might not be cheap, but it does the job the Apple way and that is no bad thing.

Last, but certainly not least, the Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Late 2011) has been outfitted with several new internal components, namely faster 2.4GHz and 2.8GHz dual-core processors (two as yet unnamed members of the Intel Core i5 and Core i7 lines). Other components held over from the previous iteration include a spacious 500GB 5,400rpm spinning hard drive, 4GB of RAM, and a 63.5Wh internal battery providing an estimated battery-life of 7-hours.

Entry-level "Pro". Apple's MacBook Pro series has been enjoying great popularity for many years now. The notebooks from Cupertino offer high performance, look great, and seem to retain their value better than any competitor's product. In the past, the 13-inch MacBook Pro appeared to be the unloved stepchild of the family. Have things changed in 2012?

With the latest product releases from Apple, the MacBook Pro 13 is certainly looking like a product that will soon reach the end of its life. The 2012 update has very little change to it other than a new processor with corresponding graphics and USB 3.0 ports. Beyond this, it is nearly identical to last years version. In the meantime, the company improved and dropped the price of the MacBook Air 13.

MacBook Pro review (13-inch, mid-2012)
Source: Engadget English
Equipped with a new Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000, this year's MacBook Pro is a capable machine. Is it the highest-performing system out there? Nah -- and without discrete graphics or an SSD, that's hardly a surprise. This is a solid laptop, even with the entry-level specs, but if you can part ways with a bit more dough, you'll be a happier camper with a Core i7, SSD-equipped configuration.

When my esteemed colleague Dabbsie reviewed the 2011 model last November he bemoaned the MacBook’s high price but concluded that it was justified as this was ‘the best bloody entry-level laptop in the world’. This year’s model is just as good, but the Windows PC competition is now catching up and, at this price, it’s hard to argue that it’s still the best.

The mid-2012 MacBook Pro is a formidable machine. Like the 15-inch models, the refresh sees it take a significant - if unremarkable - step forwards. The new processors and their improved graphical capabilities give the new releases a considerable power boost over their predecessors, and the USB 3.0 ports makes available a wealth of already-released high-speed storage peripherals.

13-inch MacBook Pro, we need to have a talk. I want to like you. I really do. And you're making it so hard. The 13-inch MacBook Pro, back when it was simply called the MacBook, was a truly envy-inducing laptop. While the 13-inch MacBook Pro remains a well-built laptop, it's fallen behind the MacBook Air and Retina Display MacBook Pro in design, lacks higher-end upgrades, and feels too expensive compared with the competition.

Hot stuff. The Apple MacBook Pro 13 is now available with a high-resolution IPS display, a slimmer chassis, and new ports. The newcomer demands a price premium of 500 Euros (~$650) above the cost of the time-tested standard model. Do the changes really warrant the lofty starting price of 1750 Euros (~$2275)?

Nel nuovo modello, il display Retina conta il doppio dei pixel, da 1.280×800 a 2.560×1.600, con tanto di modalità HiDPI, che rende più definita l’interfaccia di dimensioni e proporzioni simili alla precedente.

A small laptop with a very big screen. The 13in Macbook Pro Retina is a very desirable lightweight laptop, but it is expensive with the even the cheapest 128GB SSD model costing a high £1,449. The expense can't be justified for most people, but if you have the cash then it's definitely worth considering over other lightweight laptops.

Apple’s MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display is a worthy smaller sibling to the earlier 15-inch version, bringing the MacBook Pro and Air lines closer together than ever with its gorgeous, sleek chassis. It’s beautifully crafted, offers great ergonomics, and its ‘Retina’ screen is simply superb. Even connectivity is superior to that offered by most ultraportable laptops. However, its battery life is merely on the good side of average; it doesn’t match the power of its other components and that beautiful screen with a decent graphics solution; and its high price means there are plenty of rivals which offer more features – sometimes even for less money. In other words, you probably won’t regret buying it, but make sure an alternative doesn’t suit your needs better.

The essential specifications of the 13in Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display closely follow the groundbreaking original 15in version. Reduced size here necessitates integrated-only graphics, as well as a more efficient dual-core rather than quad-core processor. But this choice of components really delivers, and crucially in a state-of-the-art 13in notebook that takes the second-finest laptop display money can buy – beaten only by the 15in Retina model of the Apple MacBook Pro.

As a MacBook Pro we worry that this won't be powerful enough for you; as a MacBook Air it's a lot fatter and heavier for a device that doesn't give you much above and beyond what the Air delivers. That leaves us wanting more from the MacBook Pro 13-inch, and suggests that if you want real power you'll have to go for the much larger 15-inch model.

In all fairness, the 13in MacBook Pro with Retina Display is undoubtedly a terrific laptop. It provides good performance and battery life, lightweight design, and a screen that none of its PC rivals can even come close to matching. But at almost £1500 it’s very expensive indeed, and I’d have thought that the professional users who can afford that price would be more likely to opt for the 15in model anyway. It’d be a tempting upgrade at around £1300, but at this price I reckon Apple is pushing its luck.

When I reviewed it, I really liked the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. It's very fast, amazingly portable given its size and has a wonderful display. Its 13-inch counterpart, takes the portability to a completely different level. While I loved toting the 15 around (especially compared to its 2011 predecessor), it'd still feel like a burden after a long day of meetings. Using it in coach on most airlines was also problematic at times.

The new MacBook Pro is the best MacBook yet but it can’t offer the value of the 2011 version. You’re paying almost 50 percent more for the best laptop screen around and faster flash memory. That saving could get you a new iPad with a Retina display, iPad Mini or an iPhone 5.

It’s hard not to admire the sheer quality of the MacBook Pro’s design. However, Apple’s pricing makes it difficult to see exactly whom this model is aimed at.

Until the next crop of Ultrabooks (or Chromebooks?) turn up with better-than-Retina displays, it’s safe to say this is the laptop we’d choose if money were no object.

Undeniably, the 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display is a show-stopper when it comes to display quality, materials, design and fit and finish. The question is, in a worldwide depression, are these enough to sell a laptop that starts at $1,700?

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, the one we really wanted to see earlier this year when the 15-incher was unveiled, is finally here. But, it isn't quite the perfect blend of Pro performance and Air panache we'd hoped for. That it's actually thicker than its big brother, the 15-incher, is a bit of a bummer but, with its weight falling closer to Air territory than the Pro, the decision between the two models will be a tough one for frequent travelers who need a little more oomph.

By adding a high-res Retina Display to a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple has taken the odd man out of its MacBook line. While the Retina MacBook Pro is easily the most desirable 13-inch Mac laptop to date, the high price and lack of discrete graphics make it a tough call versus either the more powerful 15-inch Retina Pro or the more affordable 13-inch Air.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina starts at $1,299 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, but many users will want to go for the next level up with a faster processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB hard drive selling for $200 more. Students can find this notebook for $100 off through the education store. A refurbished base level model sells in for $1,099. Our review machine cost $1,799 and comes with a slightly faster 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. That hits the sweet spot for value and enough storage to hold my library of video and photos plus programs.

If you can live with the storage situation, or at least don't mind paying more upfront for a bigger SSD, then the Retina MacBook Pro is still one hell of a laptop. If you aren't as worried about having a razor-sharp screen or pro-level performance, then the 14 percent lighter MacBook Air will probably be the better buy. And if you can wait a few months, there's also a chance that we'll see the MacBook Air finally get a high-resolution display. That's a big and unconfirmed "if," but some rMBP buyers could end up kicking themselves if Apple indeed launches a Retina MacBook Air later in 2014. But if, right now, you want a terrific MacBook with an amazing screen, smooth software, pro-level power and excellent battery life? Well, then there are much worse things you could do with $1,300. This is an expensive – but outstanding – laptop.

It’s incredibly tough to find fault with the new MacBook Pro. There’s power aplenty, great battery life, a class-leading display and – thanks to Intel’s Iris GPU – the graphics performance the Retina display always deserved. Gram for gram, we can’t think of a laptop that delivers so much. The MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display is the best laptop money can buy.

The 2013 MacBook Pro 13" is an excellent laptop with a beautiful screen and extra-long battery life. Our biggest regret is that there's no dedicated graphics card, although the Iris 5100 will handle a certain amount of gaming. Plus, this year's MacBook Pro costs a couple hundred pounds less than last year's.

We’re getting a bit tired of Apple getting everything so utterly, utterly right, like the annoyingly swatty kid in class who never makes a mistake. As with the 2013 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.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro packs a stunning, high-resolution display, decent battery life and plenty of power into a slender, sturdy body. 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 15-inch Pro will be a welcome upgrade.

Apple's latest 13" MacBook Pro is a force: it offers a fantastic display, excellent processing power, decent graphics and very good battery life in a $1,299 package that competes strongly with Windows laptops in the same price range. 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 13-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.

All in all, the MacBook Pro 13in RD is fairly decent machine in terms of performance, but I’m not convinced that this form factor is appropriate for the Pro moniker. Pro suggests it’s for folk who know what they’re doing and do pros really want to buy into something that’s about as upgradeable as a mobile phone? Evidently, the company was listening to its users back then. Will Time Cook’s Apple be listening to make some crowd pleasing changes? We might be surprised, but in the meantime, don’t hold your breath.

So there you have it, higher than 1080p resolution on a Retina Display, very good capacity flash storage, very good portability, and phenomenal battery life. That is the recipe for our Editors' Choice winner for high-end ultraportable laptops. If it met ultrabook specs, it would be a contender to knock the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus off its perch as the premium ultrabook champ. As it is, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (2013) takes over from the $1,999 MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display) as our Editors' Choice for ultraportable laptops thanks to its improved performance, thinness, and weight. If you're not going down the touch-based Windows 8/8.1 route, then get a MacBook Pro 13-inch (2013) for your portable power users.

The question here isn't whether the MacBook Pro is better than the 2012 model or whether it stacks up against the 15-inch version - which has also recently upgraded to include the intel Haswell processor - but whether it makes more sense than a MacBook Air. 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.

In the case of the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina it's clearly business as usual for Apple, yes the reductions in size are impressive, but when you take into account the fact that pricing for 15-inch model starts at £1,699 this is clearly a product that will be either a treat for some, or a necessary expense for others. The 13-inch model, however, is where things begin to get really interesting. In the past, the original 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina would have cost you £1,449 for the 128GB model, and in return you paid for something that was cutting edge.

That said, the MacBook Pro Retina strikes an admirable balance between the two. There’s no reason the laptop couldn’t be your everyday workhorse, so long as you don’t regularly engage in seriously CPU-intensive tasks. It’s not the most powerful laptop. And it’s definitely not the most portable. But the combination of a capable processor, an amazing display, a light and slender form factor, and respectable battery life, secure the MacBook Pro’s position as one of the top notebooks on the market right now.

On paper, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display looks like a marginal upgrade: a CPU refresh with some slight changes to the weight and dimensions. But thanks to a lower starting price, faster SSD speeds and a big leap in battery life, it's actually a much, much better deal than it was a year ago.

The MacBook Pro 13 banishes any questions about its place as king of the ultraportable market. While there are some ultrabooks which match its display, battery life or performance, there are none that can do all three, and those that try (such as Dell’s XPS 13 with 1080p display) are actually more expensive.

If you need tons of storage space and the most processing power you can get your hands on, the 512GB Retina MacBook Pro is the only way to go - but you'll need the deep pockets to match. However, if you can get by with less storage and power, in comparison you can save a healthy wad of cash by opting for the entry-level machine with 128GB storage, which represents the best value of the three due to both the faster CPU and doubling of RAM compared to last year's model.

The price cut this time around may well be due to currency fluctuations rather than any real generosity on Apple’s part – there’s been no comparable change in the US prices for the MacBook Pro – but a starting price of £999 for the Retina models should certainly bolster sales in time for the new school term. And, with its smart, lightweight design and strong battery life the MacBook Pro With Retina Display can still give its Windows Ultrabook rivals a run for their money.

Which Mac laptop? MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro comparative review
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
In 2013, when Apple reduced the price of the MacBook Pro with Retina display range, we stopped recommending the 13-inch MacBook Air on the basis that there was only £150 difference in price. As Apple has continued to drop prices we are still looking at just a £150 difference between the two ranges at the entry level. It's great to see Apple reducing prices across its MacBook ranges, but the lower prices of the MacBook Pro Retina range do have the effect of making the MacBook Air look less attractive in comparison. However, we still love the MacBook Air, which is lighter and thinner, although a fraction bigger than the MacBook Pro with Retina display. If it's the MacBook Air that you have your heart set on, you can't go wrong with it, but if you have a little more in your budget, then consider the MacBook Pro with Retina display because it's a really good deal in comparison.

The price drops are welcome, although it has closed the gap between the 13in MacBook Air models and the entry-level 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display. The extra £150 (or in the case of the mid-range Retina MacBook Pro, the same price) is a reasonable price to pay for a faster machine. Of course the Retina MacBook Pro is heavier: 1.57kg compared to 1.08kg, and the MacBook Air is thinner and has longer battery life.

Apple reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (G) / ION (LE): Integrated (shared Memory) graphics adapter. Built in in current MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air laptops and also used in the ION (LE) platform for netbooks. Also called GeForce 9400M G. Fastest available motherboard GPU (in 2009). Integrated PureVideo HD (VP3) video processor to decode HD videos with the GPU.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 320M: Integrated chipset graphics card based on the GT216 core (e.g. GeForce GT 325M) but without dedicated memory. Supports Core 2 Duo processors.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel Iris Graphics 5100:

Integrated GPU (GT3) with 40 EUs (sans eDRAM) as found on certain ULV Haswell CPUs. Second fastest GPU in its family.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2415M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

4258U:

Haswell-based low-voltage dual-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.9 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Graphics 5100 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4278U: Haswell-based low-voltage dual-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Graphics 5100 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.1 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


83.44%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
