Apple MacBook Pro, MD101B/A, Intel Core i5, 500GB, 4GB RAM, 13.3"
A fully-featured laptop inside a single inch of sturdy aluminium, the MacBook Pro is designed for maximum performance in minimum size. Your high definition videos, photos and games will look even more brilliant on the sharp 13.3-inch high resolution display.
Your new MacBook Air will arrive with OS X Mavericks. Mavericks is the next major release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. With Mavericks, the Mac experience gets even better. It brings new apps to your desktop. Adds features you’ll love to use. And introduces technologies that help your Mac perform even better—while using even less power.
The MacBook Pro features a rapid 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and a long-lasting 7 hour battery. Store your digital photos, music and video on the large 500GB hard drive and enjoy them at the touch of a button with the Front Row interface. Connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled peripherals and go online while you’re out and about with AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi.
The FaceTime HD camera gives you 720p resolution — perfect for the brilliant LED-backlit display — along with improved low-light performance. You and your friends can make HD calls from one new MacBook Pro to another. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPhone 4 or the new iPod touch.
For boosted graphics performance the new MacBook Pro features Intel’s HD Graphics 4000 processor which includes an on-chip engine for video encoding and decoding. Built for 60% faster performance than previous models - you’ll experience video playback and FaceTime calls that are smoother, more responsive and truer to life.
With the new Thunderbolt port, you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display, to create a fully-fledged workstation. Two USB 3.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port let you connect your iPad, iPod, iPhone, digital cameras, and external hard drives.
The MacBook Pro also features an advanced trackpad with wonderfully intuitive Multi-Touch technology. You can flip through photos, enlarge text and adjust an image using just your fingers. Your hands have room to spread out on the full-size keyboard with crisp, responsive keys. And it’s illuminated so you can see what you’re typing in low-light settings. Navigation is simple and intuitive thanks to the multi-touch trackpad, which doubles as a button.
The new SDXC card slot supports up to 64GB cards and makes it a snap to transfer all those photos to and from your MacBook Pro, so you can edit and share them on the spot.
