With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, the latest graphics, and faster flash storage, the incredibly advanced 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display moves even further ahead in performance and battery life.

The MacBook Pro with 13.3-inch Retina display
(view larger).

Measuring a mere 0.71 inches and weighing only 3.46 pounds, the MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users. The world's highest resolution notebook display with over 4 million pixels — 2 million more than an HD television — the MacBook Pro with Retina display has such a high pixel density that the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.

This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (model ME866LL/A) features a 2.6 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 512 GB of flash storage, and 8 GB of onboard RAM.

It's powered by OS X Mavericks, the world's most advanced operating system and built to bring out the best in your Mac. And the MacBook Pro comes pre-loaded with the latest version of the iLife software suite (iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand) as well as the iWork productivity suite (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote).

The MacBook Pro also includes both a high-speed Thunderbolt port and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals. With up to 60 percent faster PCIe-based flash storage compared to the previous generation and new 802.11ac Wi-Fi for up to 3x faster wireless, the new MacBook Pro is quicker and more responsive than ever. You'll also get up to 9 hours of battery life while on the go.

Breakthrough Retina Display

At over 4 million pixels (227 pixels-per-inch), the Retina display's pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2560-by-1600 resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. You'll see fine details and textures in photos like never before, and even tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnail. The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle.

Fourth-Generation Intel Core Processor

Since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, the fourth-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor (based on the latest Haswell architecture) captures every bit of performance from the processor. When you need more power for a processor-intensive application like Aperture or Final Cut Pro, Turbo Boost 2.0 automatically increases the speed of the active cores. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency.

This model features a 2.6 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz. It's complemented by Intel Iris integrated graphics, which can boost performance by up to 90 percent (over the previous generation MacBook Pro with Retina display) — so it can handle both everyday tasks and graphics-intensive creative apps.

Flash Storage Architecture

With its entirely flash-based architecture, the MacBook Pro with Retina display makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive — starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid. The key is the new PCle-based flash storage, which provides faster read and write performance — up to 60 percent faster than the previous-generation MacBook Pro. And flash storage is extremely energy efficient, which means your MacBook Pro also has the ability to stay in standby mode for up to a month, without plugging in.

802.11ac: The New Definition of Fast

The MacBook Pro now supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station — including the AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule — wireless performance is up to three times faster than with the previous generation of MacBook Pro. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.

Thunderbolt and USB 3

Delivering an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions, the ultrafast and ultraflexible Thunderbolt port allows you to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800. You can also daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.

The MacBook Pro also comes with two USB 3 ports, enabling you to connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2. And you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.

Coming from a 13" mid-2009 MBP, this new 13" Retina MBP really is a huge improvement. I had upgraded my old MBP with a 128GB OWC SSD and 8GB of crucial RAM over the years so it wasn't too lagging, but the new Haswell based CPU and retina screen are phenomenal.

The LCD screen really is the reason to buy this laptop. At the "Best" scaled 1280x800 display setting, pixels are none existent and everything looks super smooth and crisp. View angles are excellent, truly viewable out to 178 degrees plus minus, horizontal and vertical. The option to have a 1440 & 1650 scaled resolution is also super useful when you need more desktop space. Text starts to get tiny at those sizes, but everything remains super clear & crisp.

Size wise, it has a marginally smaller footprint than my old MBP and even the new Airs. The 3.47lb weight makes the biggest difference for portability and holding an rMBP next to an Air, the difference really is negligible.

Battery life is also very good. I get the claimed 9 hours doing moderate web surfing. Watching HD movies (non-iTunes) or playing some light games brings battery life down to 5-6 hours range which is still pretty good.

Performance wise, it's handled everything I've done so far. No problems with high-res photo editing in Photoshop. The SSD really is faster, took far less time transferring data to my new MBP than pulling it from the old. I've never really seen the CPUs go above 30% and I monitor them with iStat. I'm not sure if it's the way Mavericks handles RAM, but I'm regularly engaging 4.5GB where as I'd usually hover around 3-3.5GB on Mountain Lion doing similar tasks. Hasn't been an issue so far having 8GB. Moving up to a 512GB SSD is really refreshing vs my old 128GB OWC SSD.

Verified Purchase
I gave this computer to my husband as a birthday present and he absolutely loves it! He formerly had the 15" MacBook Pro, and this new version's lightness and thinness (due to lack of a CD drive) pleased him very very much. The speed is remarkable, and unlike the MacBook Airs recently released, this has NO PROBLEMS with connection to WIFI nor any problems with dropping WIFI connection. The battery life is outstanding and under normal use (web browsing and email) lasts longer than apple's estimates.

This review has been a long time coming. I've had a succession of premium Windows laptops dating back to Windows 95. The most recent was an HP Spectre 13t Ultrabook with Windows 8.1. I had it for a week alongside this MacBook. I no longer have it. I do not expect to purchase another Windows machine in the indefinite future.

EDIT: I've added some notes on multi-monitor usage below.

I bought this system to edit in Photoshop on the road. My version is 2.4 | 16 GB | 256 GB. Screen quality, size, weight, and build were high priorities. After four months with this system, I believe it is the best mobile laptop available, second only to the Air for folks who don't need the Retina screen or 16GB of RAM.


It's hard to evaluate the Mac in isolation, so I'll make a few comparisons to the HP and Windows 8 in general. The Spectre is not the best Windows system available, but a good one similar in focus and class to the rMBP.

* Build. Very stiff, very sleek, and as thin as anything with this solidity. Aesthetically perfect to me. Light (3.5 lbs) unless you're comparing it to recent 2-2.5lb machines. It could be thinner. The narrow bezel could be even more minimalist. That's about it for improvements. The keyboard has good travel and pleasing backlighting. I don't miss keystrokes.

It's not a tank though. I distinguish between build quality (impeccable) and durability (lackluster). The aluminum case scratches and dents easily, especially the sharp edges. I have mine vinyl-wrapped. If you drop it, you may have to replace the entire case. I've seen one person physically bend a MacBook by wedging it offset into their luggage.

Bought the 2.6GHz/512GB model with the upgraded 16GB RAM from MacMall (sorry Amazon, but they have always had my Apple business) and the machine is Amazing! I am coming from an old rMBP 13 with the old Ivy Bridge 2.9GHz i7 with the sub-standard graphics from the Intel 4000. Let me just say that I can notice the speed difference between the upgraded Iris graphics and the PCIe interfaced SSD!

The weight difference is negligible, and as always the computer itself is the gorgeous unibody that feels like you're driving a Maserati versus a Toyota Corolla. The screen...well we all know how amazingly gorgeous it is and I love that it as 100% RGB reproduction..great for photos and videos (especially HD).

I work overseas and thus have a lot of down time sometimes. I watch movies off my 2TB external HDD and just in case anyone was wondering - the ultra high resolution retina screen does not pixelate movies using VLC or whatever else, even if the video is SD versus HD.

Web browsing is a true pleasure. The sites are so vibrant (despite some of the graphics and text being pixelated occasionally...but this is actually a rare occurrence in my experience.) Scrolling thru webpages is smooth now compared to my last gen. rMBP which shuttered all the time.

OS X 10.9 Mavericks is awesome! I love the way Apple used all kinds of tricks within the OS to keep battery life up. Everything from disabling Safari plugins when you are not using them (i.e. Adobe Flash) and inactive programs (i.e. minimized or behind an active window) in essence being paused to keep processor activity, HDD read/write activity, and memory read/writes down. Even when I upgraded my old rMBP from 10.8 to 10.9, I gained about 2 additional hours of battery life.
