Apple always manages to stun the people who think what new Apple can offer. One of their latest launches in the notepad series is the Apple Retina Macbook pro. There are primarily two versions of the notepad, the 13-inch and the 15-inch notepad preceded by Macbook pro. Here are some of the key features to watch out for in Apple Retina Macbook pro.
Retina display- Multimillion-pixel view
The key feature to note in the latest version of the Macbook pro series is the display, which is loaded with 2560 x 1600 resolutions in the 13-inch version and 2880 x 1800 resolutions in the 15-inch model. This makes the pixel count a little over whopping four million, two million pixels more than an HDTV. As a result, you have absolutely pin-sharp pictures. Colors are very rich and vibrant without being oversaturated. Additionally, it has IPS technology that gives you a 178-degree view of everything on the screen. A must for all photographers, the retina display reduces the glare on the screen making the pictures come out more alive without compromising on the minute details.
Power and performance
The new versions of Macbook pro are loaded with fourth generation Intel dual-core i5 and quad-core i7 processors making it extremely high-performance machines. Additionally, it has speeds up to 2.8 GHz that can be turbo boosted up to 3.3 GHz. Add all of this up with hyper-threading technology that lets each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously and what you get is an ultra fast machine ready to do anything and everything for you. The 15-inch has an even powerful quad-core Intel i7 processor and speeds up to 3.8 GHz through turbo boosts. The RAM of the Macbook pro Retina version has been upgraded from the 8GB of its predecessor to 16GB.
Iris graphics and Iris pro graphics for flawless visuals
The 13-inch Macbook pro has Iris graphics and the even more powerful 15-inch has Iris pro graphics. This is another addition from its predecessor as it has the Intel HD graphics 4000, same as Macbook Air. Needless to say, the new Iris and Iris pro graphics boosts the performance even further. Scrolling through some old photos or playing a high-end game will be fun on the hi-tech notepad. The graphics and resolutions of the screen are so high that some of the websites actually show blurry logos.
The Retina Macbook pro is not only high in performance but it is also much lighter than the regular Apple notepads. However, it does not beat the Macbook Air in weight but is a very good option for people who do not want to compromise on the performance at the cost of it being lightweight. If you are a photographer, graphics designer, or in filmmaking, this is one gadget, you will find tough to resist. However, before you jump off your couch to pick one, note that it is about 100 dollars more expensive than the regular Macbook pro 13-inch version.
