MacBook Pro

Mac Format - - UP­GRADE! -

Last sum­mer, 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; the en­try-level note­books in each screen size en­joyed a mem­ory in­crease, too. Since the Oc­to­ber 2013 re­fresh, most MacBook Pros have all of­fered a Retina screen, Thun­der­bolt 2, SSDs and a light­weight chas­sis, though the £899 non-Retina model per­sists.

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.
