Apple MacBook Pro 15 Inch Review
Apple’s Macbook Pro High End Laptop
Apple’s latest 15-inch MacBook Pro represents a slight upgrade to the best system mobile Mac power users can buy. Here’s more about the design and features of new Apple Macbook Pro.
Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro, recently updated to current-generation Intel CPUs (just in time for the holiday shopping season), retains its position as a favorite premium laptop for power-users. But that long-awaited upgrade, introduced at an Apple press event in October 2013, happened just in time.
The high-end, high-price Retina Display versions of the previous MacBook Pro were stuck in an unusual position. While other systems, from budget laptops to premium hybrids, had all moved onto Intel’s latest CPU platform, known as either the fourth-generation Core i-series or by the code name Haswell, the MacBook Pro used last year’s processors, until now.

The first Mac systems to get Haswell were the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air back in June 2013. The iMac all-in-one desktop followed. That left the more expensive MacBook Pro a generation behind its less expensive Air counterpart in CPU power and battery life. That’s important because our Labs testing has shown that Haswell offers significant improvements to battery life in PC and Mac systems.
Note, however, that this CPU update applies only to the thinner MacBook Pro models with Retina Displays. Currently only the 13-inch version of the “classic” MacBook Pro is still for sale. The 15-inch version is presumably relegated to the same lonely afterlife as its long-gone 17-inch relative. For the sake of expediency, we’ll now refer to the current 13-inch and 15-inch Retina Display models simply as the MacBook Pro.
