Apple MacBook Pro, MD101B/A, Intel Core i5, 500GB, 4GB RAM, 13.3"

Product information

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.

Key benefits:

  • Your new MacBook Pro 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.

First Class Product This is the second Apple MacBook Pro I have purchased from John Lewis, I enjoy using the product so much I bought one for my partner. The advantage of buying from John Lewis is that you are getting a great product, at a fair price and the piece of mind that comes with all purchases from John Lewis. The Mac itself is easy to use, comes with many features and long battery life making it very portable. 08 July 2014
Apple MacBook Pro - perfect Package and delivery great. MacBook Pro itself, fantastic :-). Still discovering more and more after using my vintage ibook since 2003 03 June 2014
Great buy Yes, it's not cheap but it is great, it's really quick and it stores all my music and photos in an easily accessible way. Much better than Windows; also room for my son to download and play games. I am very pleased with it. 27 May 2014
Top Laptop I have only had my new laptop for a few weeks and so far am happy with this product 13 May 2014
Really great laptop Love apple products and this MacBook is great! The MacBook is really fast, has great features and would definitely recommend. 07 May 2014
Well worth the money Seriously impressed by the speed of service and the overall quality of this product. Fast, easy to use and highly impressive. 3 year guarantee was an added bonus too! 22 April 2014
Last of the line... Like all Mac products, a superb if rather expensive laptop - you have to pay for real quality of design and manufacture. I bought this, to replace my still-working-well MacBook Pro 15", with a valuable 3 year warranty. I wanted this model as it is the last one with built-in CD/DVD recorder and a big hard drive without paying a lot of money for a decent-sized SSD. I also didn't want to pay more for a Retina display as I use a desktop monitor almost exclusively and for the same reason, don't need bigger than 13" screen. So, an excellent buy for my needs. Also, next-day delivery to my local Waitrose so convenient. 16 April 2014
Once you've had a Mac, there's no going back !!! Ordered this for my husbands birthday and paid for a quicker delivery service. Item arrived well within time. A friendly courier and of course the excellent John Lewis service. I already own a mac book pro, and am slowly converting my family to this fantastic model backed with the mac technology. A great buy 18 March 2014
