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 we designed the MacBook Pro with Retina display, we started with a blank slate. That gave us the freedom to imagine something radical, something entirely different. A notebook so thin, so light and so powerful. A notebook designed for the future, but ready to use today.
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 millimetre 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 favour 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 per cent less space. Which is one of many reasons MacBook Pro isn’t just extremely capable, it’s extremely portable too.
The Force Touch Trackpad
Force Touch adds a new dimension to the Mac experience beyond the intuitive Multi‑Touch gestures you’re familiar with. Its sensitivity is customisable 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.
MacBook Pro with Retina display is the result of an obsessive focus on detail. Apple designers and engineers worked closely together to craft every single piece that went into making it — the fans, the vents, the speakers, the noise-reducing microphones, the screws, even the machining of the thumbscoop. Everything was considered, and nothing overlooked. Because when a notebook becomes this advanced, every nanometre counts.
Faster Than The Sum Of Its Parts
Advanced Intel Core i5 and i7 processors help you power through the most complicated technical computing tasks. Integrated Iris 6100 and Iris Pro Graphics and advanced AMD graphics give you tons of pixel-driving horsepower. State-of-the-art I/O like Thunderbolt 2 gives you high-performance expansion, unprecedented in a notebook. And at the centre of it all is an entirely flash storage–based architecture that makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive.
OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac. Built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, it’s engineered to take full advantage of what the hardware is capable of. It’s designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at. It comes with an amazing collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day. And it enables your Mac and iOS devices to work wonderfully together.
