Awesome notebook!

By Whobpics

Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display:

Cleanest display on the market by far. With the i7 and flash storage, fastest computer I have ever used. Well worth the money for the best constructed notebook on the market.

        Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display:

        This is used for work and school and I must say the Retina display (sharp graphic display) is what prompted me to go this route. This thing is amazingly fast (SSD is King!). Light-weight, fits in a smaller backpack, battery life is awesome, use it up to 8 hours without charging so I'm just super happy with this MacBook Pro. I haven't installed too much yet but trial version of Final Cut Pro X and VMWare Fusion are flying!* NO ethernet port so had to fork out $xx for a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adaptor thingys which works great. Didn't have a need for the non-existent CD/DVD drive but don't think that'll be too much problem as I'm contemplating getting me

          Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display:

          The Retina display has a great visual impact. I love the from factor and the portability, but with a more professional feel than the Air. I've read on dedicated forums about image retention issues but I have not noticed anything in about 2 weeks of normal usage. The i7 processor helps having no hiccups while scrolling heavy web pages. Bottom line: you know you're paying a high price for a peculiar product which has some characteristics which are not matched by the competition.

          Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display:

          I replaced my old Dell Desktop with this. Initially concerned with the monitor size, I enjoy using this for general purpose like web browsing and communication. I think 13 inch is fine for most usage.

          trasnferring the files from my old pc was very easy (it took half a day), and some files may not be compatible for apple softwares, I'm very satisfied.

          My small issue is the magnet power plug on the side. Sometimes I hook this on, but the charging doesn't start for some reason. I need to remove and hook it back on a couple times before it starts charging.

            Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display:

            I had been wanting an iPad for a couple years but needed the functionality of a mac book pro for presentations and writing. But the previous mac book pros were a bit heavy for my taste. Apple sure knows how to improve. While all the bells and whistles will end up inflating that price tab; at least you have lots of choices. Pairing this with the thunderbolt display has provided me a small and portable laptop that connects to a big beautiful screen once I get home.
