A Spectacular display is just the beginning.
A groundbreaking Retina display. A new force-sensing trackpad. All-flash architecture. Powerful dual-core and quad-core Intel processors. Together, these features take the notebook to a new level of performance. And they will do the same for you in everything you create.
When you pack so many pixels into a display, over 4 million on the 13‑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 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13‑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 color 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.
The Force Touch trackpad.
Press little deeper, do a lot more.
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 on the 13-inch model takes all the capabilities of Multi-Touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downward pressure you apply. This lets you have a deeper connection to your content, bringing more functionality right 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.
Advanced Intel mobile processors.
Dual-core. Quad-core. Serious power.
With the fifth-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 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 your entire digital photo studio. Hyper-Threading technology, which enhances performance by letting each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously, is included in every model.
A flawless onscreen performance.
The 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Retina display features Intel Iris Graphics 6100 to handle 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 but big on performance.
Up to a 10-hour charge.
The 13‑inch MacBook Pro lasts up to 10 hours between charges, an hour longer than previously. 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 1000 full charge and discharge cycles.
Ultrafast all-flash storage.
There’s a reason they call it “flash”.
Thanks to the superfast read and write performance of the PCle-based flash storage, you’ll notice a difference in whatever you do. Starting up is really fast, apps launch quickly, and navigating the desktop feels fluid and responsive. The 13-inch model features flash storage that’s 2 times faster than the previous generation, letting you import huge photo libraries in no time flat.
The definition of fast.
Meet the ultimate mobile creative studio. With an emphasis on mobile. Equipped with 802.11ac Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you’re free to unplug and still stay connected to your network, to your wireless peripherals, and to the world. With AirPlay and Apple TV, you can wirelessly play video, show off photos, and enjoy music from your MacBook Pro on your widescreen TV. And when your MacBook Pro connects to an 802.11ac Wi‑Fi base station, such as AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, your wireless performance is up to 3x faster.
The most advanced I/O.
Fast and versatile, Thunderbolt 2 provides up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you’re more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals and displays. You can connect massive amounts of storage and add a PCI expansion chassis. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 12 external devices via Thunderbolt alone. You’ll get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, and a headphone port. So in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centerpiece.
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.
Everything you need. Anywhere you need it.
iCloud stores your content and lets you access your music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents, and more from whatever device you’re on. So if you take a picture with your iPhone or make changes to your meeting schedule on your iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your Mac, too. And it works both ways create a to-do list on your Mac and you can make edits to it on your iPhone.
Less has never been more.
It may be incredibly thin and light, but MacBook Pro with Retina display is also incredibly powerful. To achieve all that in a single design required relentless focus and a willingness to make bold decisions. Every millimeter was designed, engineered, built, and assembled to the most exacting performance standards. Bulky legacy technologies like the spinning hard drive and optical disc drive were left behind in favor of newer, higher-performance technologies PCIe-based flash storage, for example. Flash is much faster and far more reliable than a traditional hard drive. And it takes up 90 percent less space. Which is one of many reasons MacBook Pro isn’t just extremely capable, it’s extremely portable, too.
The Force Touch trackpad.
A whole new level of responsiveness.
Unlike traditional trackpads, the new Force Touch trackpad makes it easy to click anywhere on the surface. Sensors accurately detect how much pressure you’re applying and respond accordingly, yet it feels the same as the trackpad you’re accustomed to. In addition, a new Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback a tactile response from the trackpad to your fingertip whenever you perform certain tasks, like trimming a clip in iMovie or aligning annotations in a PDF.
Force Touch adds a new dimension to the Mac experience beyond the intuitive Multi‑Touch gestures you’re familiar with. Its sensitivity is customizable, too, allowing you to adjust how much pressure is needed to register a click. And the Force Touch trackpad can even tell whether you’re clicking with your thumb or another finger, adjusting the sensitivity level automatically.
A display so advanced, the difference is clear.
The Retina display is a breakthrough any way you look at it. We pushed the limits of technology to create a pixel density so high, you can see everything you’re doing with perfect clarity and make edits with pinpoint accuracy. Not only is it an incredibly high-resolution display, it has an integrated design that achieves a level of fit and finish never before possible. The Retina display doesn’t sit behind a layer of glass, it is the glass. Which means you get all the benefits of a state-of-the-art display vibrant colors, high contrast, and wide viewing angles with very little glare. So there’s more to see, and even less to distract you from your work.
