MacBook Pro

Mac Format - - UPGRADE! -

In Au­gust 2014, Ap­ple gave the Retina MacBook Pros a mi­nor re­fresh. All mod­els got a 0.2GHz speed in­crease and a price cut of between £50 and £200, and the en­try-level note­books in each screen size en­joyed a mem­ory in­crease too. Since the Oc­to­ber 2013 re­fresh, the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of MacBook Pros have all of­fered a Retina screen, Thun­der­bolt 2 ports, SSDs and a light­weight chas­sis.

The power sav­ing af­forded by the new fourth-gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i5 and Core i7 pro­ces­sors in­tro­duced in Oc­to­ber gave the Retina MacBook Pros a bat­tery life boost. The 13-inch model now lasts for nine hours, and the 15-inch note­books for eight hours, both up from seven – enough for an av­er­age work­ing day.
