Product information

The most advanced Apple notebook ever, the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display packs amazing technology into a thin and light package. Powered by a fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce graphics, the MacBook Pro with Retina display includes super fast all-flash memory and a long battery life to keep you going on the road.

Retina display
With over five million pixels on show, the Retina display on MacBook Pro is positively stunning. Designed to ensure that your eyes won’t be able to discern individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, images take on a new level of realism, while text is sharp and clear. Colours on the Retina display are rich and vibrant, while a high contrast ratio makes blacks appear blacker and whites whiter. It also includes IPS technology to enable a clear view from angles as wide as 178-degrees.

Fourth-generation Intel processors
Intel's fourth generation quad-core i7 processor provides stunning performance that makes quick work of even the most complex tasks, such as editing HD video. Add to this 16GB of RAM and you’ll find performance is smooth even when you’ve got a variety of windows open. The fourth generation of Intel's processors provide superior battery life and will also help to keep you and your personal information safer, thanks to built-in security features.

Graphics from Intel and NVIDIA
With combined Intel and NVIDIA graphics technology, the MacBook Pro with Retina will deliver superior speed and responsiveness in games and when editing 3D videos. Intel Core i7 processor features Intel Iris Pro graphics with 128MB of embedded memory to accelerates processor- and graphics-intensive tasks by acting as an ultra-fast cache. Intel Iris graphics deliver eye popping graphics and incredible multimedia experiences, without the need for an additional graphics card. Automatic graphic switching will seamlessly turn on the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce graphics card when you need it. The GeForce GT 750M features 2GB of ultra fast GDDR5 memory and is packed with top of the range technology to ensure greater speed and dazzling graphics.

Powerful and Portable
MacBook Pro with Retina display somehow manages to squeeze more power into a smaller space than ever, making it thin and light enough to take with you. Every millimetre has been carefully considered to maximise performance and minimise size, while bulky legacy components have been removed in favour of newer, higher performance technologies. You won’t even have to worry about running out of power after a few hours use, thanks to the long lasting battery life of up to 8 hours.

As well as fourth generation Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro with Retina display includes super fast PCIe-based flash storage for lightning quick load times, 802.11ac Wi-Fi to ensure rapid networking and two Thunderbolt 2 ports for swift data transfer through a wired connection.
