Apple's venerable MacBook Pro 13 design still holds up well in a number of areas including battery life and durability but the limited number of upgrades in the fall 2011 refresh make the system feel tired especially when compared to the recently updated MacBook Air 13 that costs just $100 more.

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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
