Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Intel Quad Core i
The Apple Macbook Pro 15 Inch with Retina display with all-flash architecture and Quad-core Intel Core i7 processor is Apple's most advanced Mac. Its stunning Retina Display makes everything you see on the screen more vibrant, detailed and sharp. Packing over 5 million pixels into a 15.4-inch display, you'll be able to see the finest detail in your images or HD video and text is ultra sharp.
With more colours and a greater contrast, the new Retina display reduces screen glare and features a 29 per cent higher contrast ratio than a standard MacBook Pro display. IPS technology offers a wide, 178-degree view of the screen, so you can see every vibrant colour at almost any angle.
High performance flash architecture makes a huge difference to everything you do: starting up takes only seconds, apps are quick to launch and the desktop is highly responsive. This is all down to the flash storage which performs up to four time faster than a traditional hard drive. When you use demanding applications such as Final Cut Pro or Aperture, you can carry out even the most intensive tasks directly from the internal storage.
It's complete with 256GB of flash storage, so you can store all your important files and media. Flash is both durable and quiet as it doesn't feature any moving parts. You can keep the MacBook in standby mode for up to a month, so whether it's been in sleep mode for a day, a week or a month it will still switch back on in an instant.
Powered by third-generation Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors with a 22-nanometre single-die micro-architecture for the fastest quad-core performance ever in a notebook. NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M is based on a next-generation Kepler architecture with 1GB of dedicated video memory, which makes processor speeds up to 60 per cent faster than any previous Apple notebook. This GPU gives the MacBook enough power to run the stunning five million pixel Retina display along with two external displays.
To keep the MacBook Pro's high-performance and high resolution Retina display going, there's a powerful battery that gives you up to 7 hours of charge and a 30-day standby time. The addition of Power Nap in OS X Mountain Lion enables your MacBook Pro to still recieve new emails and calendar invitations when it's asleep. Connect it to a power source and you can download software updates or make backups with the Time Machine.
Stay connected with the latest three-stream 802.11n wireless technology to get the best performance at any range. MacBook Pro will find any available networks and you can connect to them with just a click. Bluetooth wireless technology enables you to connect to all your wireless accessories. Two Thunderbolt ports offer you ultra fast connections, plus there are two USB 3 ports, HDMI port and an SDXC card slot. The versatile I/O allows you to connect almost anything and grants you the option to expand your setup. - A.D.
