MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina Review (late 2013)

MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina Review (late 2013)

Back in June 2012 we described the original 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display as "the gold standard" for high-end notebooks; now, Apple is back with its refreshed version, swapping in Intel's latest Haswell processors and graphics, but keeping the high-resolution display. Unlike the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina, the 15-inch model doesn't slim down any, but then again the meatiest Pro has never really been about portability alone. Instead, it aims to be the powerhouse desktop-replacement that you can bring with you, and with a $200 cut to the sticker price it sounds all the more appealing. Has the 2013 refresh kept the most serious Pro at the top of its game? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Don't purchase a MacBook Pro this late 2013 season expecting to be able to repait it on your own any time in the near future - at least not by the judgement of the team at iFixit. They've made with the teardown of both the MacBook Pro 13-inch and 15-inch units from this most recent season, and the results point toward some of the least user-friendly innards on the market. If you're not about repairing the hardware later on in the life of the machine's wear-and-tear yourself, you'll need no worries at all.

MacBook Pro late-2013 hands-on

MacBook Pro late-2013 hands-on

It's all-change in Mac land, and after the MacBook Air got its Haswell refresh earlier this year - to great effect - it's the turn of the MacBook Pro with Retina display to be brought up to speed. Apple's pixel-dense desktop replacement was always a powerhorse, at least in 15-inch form, but now gets Intel fourth-gen Core processors and Iris Pro graphics to deliver more grunt along with more battery life.

MacBook Pro Haswell refresh tipped for September

After the WWDC 2013 boost given to the MacBook Air range with Intel's 4th generation Core processor technology, it would appear that the end of Summer is appearing as the most likely landing spot for this team-up with the MacBook Pro. What better time to bring this Haswell action in a FULL reboot than the push for both Apple's mobile and desktop operating systems in the second half of this year?
