My 13-inch MacBook Pro is a beast!

I purchase the Apple MD102LL/A 13.3" MacBook Pro dual-core Intel Core i7 2.9GHz, 8GB RAM, 750GB 5400-rpm hard drive, Intel HD Graphics 4000, OS: Mountain Lion. The laptop is a beast. I love it. I shopped around and I found the best deal on MacMall. Apple had a used model of this laptop costing more compared to MacMall selling the same exact model for much cheaper and brand new. I will recommend anyone to purchase here. You can’t beat their prices. I will definitely do business again in the future with MacMall. PS The only thing I would upgrade on this laptop, in the near future is the hard drive. A solid state hard drive would do justice.

1st Mac owned -- Love it!

This is the first Mac I have ever owned, and I might not have bought it due to the price difference typically seen between the PC and Mac markets. In this case I have always been intrigued, being an IT professional for over 20+ years, as to why Mac users love their Macs.

The fundamental factor was price, as the Mac and the PCs are now comparable in price when looking for similar features and components - i.e. Core i7, 8GB, large SSD, graphics cards, etc. I went with the MacBook Pro 13.3 inches and I am loving it. One device to do all I need. The Parallels allows me to continue using the Windows applications I require, but enjoy the benefits of longer battery life, the stable platform of the BSD-based Mac OS X. I love it and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Very impressed with speed and battery life

I have been a longtime Windows PC and laptop user, while my wife has owned and loved Macs for a while. I decided to try the new MacBook Pro with Retina to replace an aging but reliable Dell Win XP laptop. It has been nothing but impressive, especially in how quickly it can restore from sleep due to the lightning-fast SSD. I have also been impressed with the battery life; compared to colleagues at work with the 1st generation rMBP (pre-Haswell core i7), I can get an additional 30-90 minutes of battery life, on average. The Retina display is beautiful as well.

Pretty Awesome

"I purchased this MacBook Pro primarily for university. First, I will admit, this specific laptop is overkill. I needed a new laptop because my kids have taken over my Samsung. I missed having a Mac; I own a 10-year-old Powerbook that works perfectly, however, no browser or programs support it nowadays.

This computer is superfast and the display is beautiful. I have become accustomed to having a retina screen (I have an iPad 3 and 5th-gen iPod touch). The 16GB of RAM and the 2.3GHz Haswell are a great combination. I couldn't justify getting the model with the Nvidia card.

Overall, I am pleased with the rMBP. As for the battery, the jury is still out. I have been installing programs and getting the laptop where I want it. As I normalize my usage I'll probably see better times on battery."

Finally!

Finally, after years of Mac envy (literally since the Lisa) I bit the bullet and got one! This thing is solid in demeanor and performance. It boots up in just a few seconds and sleep mode, i.e. just closing the lid, works without hiccups. It is quiet and feels like a Mercedes. I have never been able to make statements like that about Windows machines. I have been slow to add apps because am focused on migrating infrastructure and want to learn the "native" machine. That said, am beginning to poke on the App Store and am generally having fun with this. Quite happy with my decision to pull the trigger.

Last of the Expandable MacBook Pros

The 13" non-Retina MacBook Pro has been one of Apple's bestselling laptops for the past several years. It's the last of the expandable MacBook Pros, with RAM, hard drive and battery easily accessible for servicing or replacement. If you need a full assortment of ports, a CD/DVD drive, and tend to keep your computer for a long time, this is a good choice. The addition of Thunderbolt and USB3 ports, plus the Intel Core i7 chip, makes this variant a completely current system. The main drawbacks are that it's a bit heavier than an Air or Retina MBP, and the included 5400rpm hard drive is a bit sluggish, but replacing this with an SSD greatly improves performance. I recommend SSD drives for all Macs (regardless of model) running OS X 10.7 Lion or newer.

consistent, reliable and user friendly

I got the 3rd generation i7, with 8GB RAM and 750GB memory. I was coming from being a PC user and Mac makes it easy to transfer everything over. I love OS X Mavericks, easy to learn and the shortcuts with the trackpad make the computer fun to use. I highly recommend this computer if you're looking for a lot of hard drive memory and storage capability. If you're looking for a lighter, more portable computer, go with the retina display MacBook or the MacBook Air. 4.5lbs can feel heavy after a while.

Amazing Machine

This MacBook Pro replaces my 2010 15" MacBook Pro. I decided to upgrade for two very important reasons. First, I wanted the Retina Display and secondly, I wanted an SSD instead of a hard drive. I've had the 15" Retina MacBook Pro for a little over two weeks now, and boy am I impressed with the clarity of the display and how much faster an SSD is as opposed to a hard drive. I can also tell that this laptop is one pound lighter than my old one and is slightly thinner. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Excellent computer

Bought this with the intention of it being a good computer. After using the new Mac OSX Mavericks and installing Windows 7 professional on it, this computer is superb. It is lighting-fast, the graphics are clearer than crystal, and very easy to use. The battery lasted almost 5 hours even with streaming a football game on Watch ESPN while surfing the internet. Highly recommend this computer.

Amazing Machine

My new MacBook Pro Retina 15" is amazing! Display resolution is amazing, just as advertised. Mine came with an LG display (not Samsung) so I will be monitoring for image retention issues, but so far, after a few weeks no such issues. The flash memory is incredibly fast - super fast start-up and lightning fast access to all storage including photos. This is my first Mac and based on the first few weeks of use, this machine is very refined and perfectly tuned compared to any PC I have owned. The OS is intuitive, smooth and seamless. Within a few hours I was breezing around the system with ease, even after using windows only since the mid-90s. You’ll LOVE this machine! Also, the store had the best deal out there. Shipping and packaging were great! Excellent service!! Thank you!

Worth the pricetag

As soon as I tried out my brother’s MacBook Pro with Retina display, I knew I had to get the 15.4-inch model. Of course, the price on the larger model is higher, but I personally think this machine is worth every cent.

The Retina display is certainly worth the hype and this machine’s larger screen allows me to enjoy it even more. I liked that I could choose between a variety of resolutions, so I can adjust the resolution for days when I need more screen space. The machine offers a scaled mode that I use for software and websites that aren’t compatible with Retina display.

Overall, this MacBook Pro is amazingly fast. The quad-core processor and solid state drive really do their job, and I’m happy to report that I’ve never experienced any lags since I started using the laptop three weeks ago. OS X, as always, is a joy to use and I can’t wait to upgrade to Mavericks when it hits the market.

Gorgeous Retina display

I’ve been using my dad’s old HP desktop for the longest time, so I was really excited when he told me he’d get me any laptop I want as a graduation gift. I’ve been teaching myself how to use Photoshop and Illustrator, so I knew I wanted a laptop with a kickass screen. My friends had a lot of positive feedback about Macs and the Retina display, so I decided to go with this MacBook Pro. The MacBook Air looked a little too flimsy for me.

The Retina display was way better than I expected. I don’t know exactly how to describe the effect, but colors seem to be brighter and the graphics I draw somehow seem clearer and cleaner, especially along the edges. It’s made using Photoshop and Illustrator so much easier, as I feel the colors are more accurately displayed. Even text and photos are easier to read and look at on my new MacBook Pro, compared to my old desktop. The size seems to be perfect for me, too, I can use it on my lap for hours with no problems.

AWESOME, simply put

I have owned 2 Mac computers (Powerbook G4 and MacBook black from 2006). Both ran for years without incident so I just decided it was time for a new one. I got the new MacBook Pro with Retina 13" because it seemed more computer than I really needed. I went for the beefy i7 and the 512 GB hard drive just in case I wanted to fill it up. After only having it for 2 weeks my wife now calls my computer my new girlfriend, because this thing is awesome and I don't want to put it down. My only complaints are that it doesn't have an integrated CD drive (bought an external drive, no biggie) and the thunderbolt ports seem to have little to no function for me unless I drop a bunch of money on adapters or external hard drives that I don't really need. I'm a teacher so I LOVE that it has an HDMI port to plug directly into my LCD TV in my room. I also love that it is super fast to wake and perform... it emits virtually no heat, and runs super quiet! It's awesome. Apple did a great job with this one. Maybe I can wait until 2020 to buy a new one.

Very satisfied with the Retina Display

The Retina display on the newest MacBook Pro definitely doesn't disappoint. I do a fair amount of graphic & typography work, so I was really looking forward to enjoying the Retina display, and I've been enjoying it for a couple of weeks now. The color display is incredible, even whites look brighter and crisper somehow, none of that bluish tint I sometimes got on my old MacBook Pro. Fonts also look about ten times better, especially in full screen mode. I've forgotten how beautiful fonts looked up close.

Another thing I love about my MacBook Pro with Retina display is that it works flawlessly with my Wacom Bamboo tablet. Initial configuration didn't take much time and effort. I simply had to install some drivers then it was all plug and play from there.

This MacBook Pro with Retina display also seems to be very capable of handling multiple photo editing tasks. In the past week I was constantly switching between touching up a batch of high-res photos and editing some videos and this MBP didn’t buckle or lag even once.

great for old eyes too!

My only apprehension when considering purchasing this was the retina display. With its high resolution I knew many things were going to actually appear smaller in size and that concerned me as I'm getting to an age where reading is starting to feel like I should have glasses on. The fears were unfounded. The display is so sharp that my eyes do not have to strain to be able to read even small fonts. With the pinch to zoom in and out gestures, even if there is something I want to get a better look at, it is so fast and easy to have a closer look. The laptop is solid as a rock but still just light enough to not be a bother. This is my first Mac... coming from a 13" Samsung Series 9. The Samsung was lighter and thinner... but it was not durable. Hinges and display problems on all three of them in the household. Plus it has been fun learning the iOS... and I'm already more productive...not something I expected.

Superior display, great price

I just switched to Mac last year and got a mid 2012 Macbook Air 13" for personal use. It is a great lightweight machine and looks very sexy and priced reasonably given its size and improved performance. Then I recently acquired a 2012 non-retina 15" Macbook pro for other purpose and impressed by it keyboard and screen even though it is not a retina one. I started to look for a retina version of Macbook pro but price is so high especially for 15". I started to look into the 13" option and came across the great macmall offer ($1599 with 256ssd and i7). I got it 2 days ago and I am so impressed that I need to write a review.

Pros:
1. Super sharp IPS retina display. No laptop I have came across can match. My MBA screen looks not so great now.

2. 3.5 pounds laptop with all metal case

3. Great keyboard

4. Battery life is a lot better than my non-retina 15"

5. Great built quality

6. Display hinge is stiffer than MBA which I prefer

Cons
1. Running hot with high CPU usage and fan doesn't kick in

2. RAM is not upgradable and maxed out at 8GB

3. Slightly thicker than the 15" retina MBP

4. Missing the "Macbook Pro" below the display :)

5. No kensington lock (but same for my MBA)

I am happy with my purchase. If you would like a better 13" MBA with much improved display, improved performance and not worry about little increased weight, then it is a no brainer given the little price difference.

My first MBP

I've been building and using PCs for years. I fix computers for neighbors and co-workers on the side and have been getting more and more requests involving Apple machines and OS X. Not knowing much about them, I got curious and started doing some research. I had owned an original iPad and had recently upgraded to the fourth generation so I was somewhat familiar with the reliability and ease of use of Apple products. A few weeks ago I was able to finally go out and purchase a real smart phone for business use. I chose the iPhone 5 and was thrilled to see how well it complemented my iPad.

Needing a new laptop for travel, I put the 13 inch MBP on my short list. I had heard (and believed) that Apple computers were good looking but extremely overpriced machines. I started really comparing apples to Apples (sorry) and discovered that equally spec'ed out Windows based laptops were actually just as expensive as a Macbook. You really just have to discover that the 400 dollar blue and yellow store special is not even close in terms of a capabilities of a Macbook.

I took the plunge and have thoroughly enjoyed this machine the past few weeks. The retina screen is wonderful and if you have been spoiled by it on your iPad, I really recommend spending the extra money to have it on your laptop. It makes reading text and photo-editing pleasurable. The battery life and overall snappy-ness are really impressive and this is coming from someone who overclocks and water cools his Windows based desktop. I am having fun learning the ins and outs of OS X (there are some great books on the subject) and have found the multi-touch features of the trackpad revolutionary. After a few months, I have no buyer’s remorse whatsoever. The long battery life, dimensions, weight, and speed of this machine are to die for!!

Excellent replacement for PC laptop

I've been a PC user for the longest time-- since the early 00s. When my ailing Inspiron finally kicked the bucket earlier this month, I decided to go with this MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I'm very glad to say that I have no regrets whatsoever. Setup was pain-free, so my transition from PC to Mac was seamless, despite the many horror stories from colleagues and friends.

By far, this laptop's best feature is its dual-core processor. It boots up heavy-duty apps with no lag whatsoever, something I can't say for all the PC laptops I've used before. Of course, the Retina Display is stunning. I wish the battery lasted longer off the plug, but I'm probably nitpicking.

Transition from the 17" to the 15"

As a motion graphic artist & video editor I was convinced I would hate making that transition from my 17" MBP to this 15" MBP. But at this price (spring sale) I decided to try it. When the display is set to "more space" and you put them side by side you can barely tell the difference. I knew I was losing about some space but it just doesn't feel like it. I can see why they cut the 17" line. If you need the space just plug in to a monitor when at home or at work. That being said, I do a lot of traveling and even though I'll be without a monitor, i'm no longer worried about it.

One thing I should mention was I removed my optical drive from my 17" and replaced it with an OWC SSD drive (I believe the 6G extreme). I thought my 17" was fast... But SSD in the 15" retina was faster by at least 25-40%.

PROS
Amazing screen! It's just beautiful.
Fast SSD
USB3, thunderbolt, SDHC, and HDMI (awesome!)
Large screen space option.
Lightweight (it's ridiculously light compared to my 17")

CONS
No Ethernet or FireWire (but I get why they did it) thunderbolt adapters are useable.
Coming from a matte screen, the glossy is a huge improvement on old glossy screens, but it's still not matte

It really is worth the upgrade. If you've been thinking about it for a while now, just try it. You have a period of time to return it if you don't like it, though I doubt you'll need to use it. Between the weight, speed (14% faster than my 17" overall, ~30% faster SSD), and beautiful screen it makes for a worthy upgrade.

Best MBP I've ever owned

This is my third Macbook laptop. The first one was the 2008 15" MBP before unibody, then 2010 15" MBP unibody, and now this 13" Retina. With the first two, I've always used Bootcamp to run Window XP / Windows 7 applications I need for work (ERP consultant) since I didn't want to compromise speed and power using VMware and/or Parallels. However, with this Retina and Flash Drive (512GB), I can have the BEST of both worlds in a nice neat little and 2 lbs lighter package with an unbelievable gorgeous retina display!!!

The high resolution Retina makes up for the smaller screen so I'm actually able to pack as much if not more window panes on this screen than my 15" and the print/graphics is crisp and bright. The solid state drive provides the speed I need to run Parallels / Windows 7 and keep this running most of the time, so that I can work, VPN into my client system, run Windows specific applications I need for my business, while still able to enjoy my Mac OS applications and operating system all at the same time. I can have full screen Windows 7 when needed, or have my Windows app co-exist within the Mac OS system (Coherence mode).

Either way, the transitions run smoothly and effortless! The i7 processor helps a great deal. This is without a doubt the way I've always envisioned having and running a Mac. My first two MBP's were awesome machines, but did not have the power, and drive speed to really do what I want it to do. This Retina i7 13" does EVERYTHING I need it to do professionally and personally speaking. The bonus is my computer bag is 2 lbs lighter, and I can actually use my laptop while on long flights. Currently, I run the following in addition to the applications delivered:

Parallels 8, MS Office 2011 for Mac (Excel / Word / Powerpoint), MS Office 2010 for Windows 7 (Excel / Word / Powerpoint), MS Projects 2010, MS Vision 2010, MS Windows 7 Pro, VMware, VPN client, TeamViewer, GotoMeeting, Wunderlist 2, Evernote, TurboTax, Quicken, Spotify

Absolutely in love with this machine!!! Now I'm just waiting for the Macbook Air to go Retina and 16gb RAM and then I'll have an excuse to upgrade yet again! :)

I love this machine

I love this machine. I wanted this particular machine for a while. As I am a retired person I had to save for it. When this store lowered the price and only had a few left I knew the time was here. I have a 15 inch mac pro but it was too large and heavy to transport anywhere, and after looking at the mac air, even though this was heavier, I bought it. I am replacing an old 13 inch white plastic Apple laptop that I can't update. I have owned a few Macs since I got into the computer world in the 80's and other than "notifications" the new mountain lion seems to work very well. It also was very handy to sit the new 13 inch laptop next to my old 15 inch laptop and have all the information transferred automatically while I watched TV (I should have cleared out all the old email including the trash folder from the 15 inch first--live and learn.) The store was just great. I will finish this the way I started, "I love this machine".

My first Mac

Had been contemplating getting a Mac for about a year now. My Sony laptop was 4 years old and giving me some problems. I recently got a Network Hard Drive and started moving all my files over to it. Mainly music then with the extra room I started redoing my library in the Apple lossless format. As I got past the G’s the CD drive in my laptop went down so I decided now, 3 weeks ago, was the time to act.

I had a 16.4 inch screen on my laptop and really stopped travelling with it about two years ago after I got my first iPhone. I went back and forth between getting a 13 inch and a 15 inch. I wanted to have a SSD and couldn’t justify the extra $700 for a similar 15 inch. I don’t do gaming, do some minor video editing and use it for Microsoft Office and music.

Ordered from the store, they called pretty quickly to verify I placed the order and it was at my apartment 2 days later.

The computer worked perfectly but I had very little experience with a Mac. Setting it up was simple. Attaching the network drive was simple. It took me some time to figure out how to move all my settings and contact books from the PC to the MAC with the Migration Assistant. Then I finally realized I was moving an account and not individual files and it worked perfectly.

The last issue I had was getting iTunes to work the same exact way it was working on my PC with all my media files on the Network. It kept going back to the default setting every time I restarted. I searched the web for a few days looking for answers. Seems to be a pretty common problem but couldn’t do it.

On Saturday morning I was able to walk over the Apple Store on 68th and Broadway explained the issue I was having. The employee looked it up on his iPad and took me over to a laptop on display and went through it with me. There some hidden user files in Apple by design. I moved one from the file to the Desktop made the changes I had done numerous times but this time it created a new Plist for iTunes. Then I set up my Macbook to connect to the network drive on login and it’s working beautifully.

It took a little time to get used to the smaller screen but once I put away my old 16 inch laptop it’s not really noticeable.

I probably could have saved a little more money going with a 128 GB SSD but someday I might want that extra room.

Very happy now and I’m sure the more I use it the happier I’ll be.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display: Amazing retina screen, and i7 to boot

I've had MBPro laptops for the last 7 years, and this one is by far my favorite. Yes, it lacks the optical drive and hard disk, but it is fast and slim and the screen is a dream come true for my aging eyes.

The one complaint I have is that it is not possible to upgrade the RAM on this model. I have 8GB RAM, and that's all it ever gets since it is soldered into the internals of the computer. I think that is pretty ridiculous for a top-class laptop.

Aside from that "design flaw" I have had this system for about two weeks and am very pleased with the construction, dimensions weight, speed and especially the screen. One note on my Parallels running XP, it no longer seems to affect the rest of my other running OSX apps. Not sure if it is a combination of the i7 plus the SSD drive, but I like that I can run Windows in tandem with no performance hits.

Awesome!

When I went to the Apple store, I wasn't thrilled about the new keyboards on the MacBook Pros - as I have an old one and the keyboard is STILL phenomenal! Product Development has to learn that when something is awesome you don't have to change it! Anyway, the newer keyboard works just fine, but it's not as easy to glide your fingers over as the older style with beveled edges on the keys. I just can't over the amazing picture quality that this new little MacBook (little compared to the 17" that I usually look at from work) has! Mac technology is far superior than any PC, too. It's a perfect size to use for everything because it's easy to take with you, yet not so small that you can't fit anything on the screen. Just love it.

Awesome Laptop!

Thankfully my old Dell Laptop bit the dust and I had a good excuse to get a new Apple! My son is a diehard Apple fan and probably owns one of everything they make! He has been telling me to get an Apple to replace my long dead laptop so I now own the Macbook Pro and love it. I am still learning all the things you can do with it but already I find it an amazing laptop. I love the speed, the lightweight design, the portability, the backlighting on the keyboard and the security that comes with owning an Apple laptop. I am really enjoying FaceTime, now I can see my new grandson who lives 7 hrs away and it looks like I am there! I have no cons, looking forward to getting the iPad mini now!

MacBook Pro with Retina Display: Perfection

This MacBook Pro (with Retina display) replaces my faithful white MacBook of 2007 vintage running Mac OS 10.5.8. The local Apple Store completed the data transfer. The new OS (Mountain Lion) does not support my old version of Office for Mac 2004, nor my old Lexmark X75 all-in-one inkjet printer. This is not all bad, as it forced me to update Office software to 2011 and to an HP all-in-one that had been part of my 2007 purchase, but remained unused. However, the old white MacBook coped with the older software and printer well.
As to the new MacBook Pro (with Retina display), this reflects the progress made over the years from 2007, both in hardware and software. The result in my estimation is, as the review title indicates, the perfect laptop; and a work of art.

Mac Book Pro 15 inch

Wow. This is my first MacBook Lap top. Finally moved from a Windows PC laptop to the Mac. Not my first Mac, but my first laptop. Just great in so many ways. Much of this wow factor is due to the way Apple put together a hardware and software component that just works well. No delay, no issues, no bugs, no reboots and just peace of mind. I have high expectations, but I know that any computer will need its share of maintenance in order to work over the long term. I ordered full memory, full CPU speed and of course there largest screen. You pay for these benefits, but they are worth every penny, sorry dollar. Yes Macs are more expensive but I get what I paid for. Hope you all feel the same way.

The new MacBook Pro with Retina display
More power behind every pixel.

The new MacBook Pro with Retina display is the most advanced Mac ever made. It has been rebuilt from the ground up without the limitations of any legacy technology. The result is a mobile powerhouse that offers a stunning display, the latest in quad-core computing, fast and reliable all-flash architecture, life-like graphics, and a battery life that can last up to nine hours of wireless web usage on a single charge.

Highest screen resolution on any notebook
The breakthrough Retina display of the new MacBook Pro offers over 5 million pixels on a 15.4 inch screen. It packs more pixels than an HDTV and a higher pixel-for-pixel accuracy to render needle-sharp text and lifelike images.

Latest processors and graphics
The new MacBook Pro comes with fourth-generation Intel Core processors which lets you enjoy great performance on your most intensive apps. And, with the Intel Iris and Iris Pro graphics, the new MacBook Pro with Retina display lets your graphics fly when working on everyday tasks or even creative apps. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display also comes with the combined power of Intel Iris Pro and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics, giving you greater speed and responsiveness on 3D games and HD video projects.

Faster flash storage
It’s called flash for a reason. With the all-flash architecture of the MacBook Pro, every computing task is fast. It takes mere seconds to start the computer. Apps launch quickly. The computer responds more fluidly. All thanks to the flash technology in the new MacBook Pro that offers nine times the performance of a traditional hard drive.

Next-generation Wi-Fi
Powered with the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi, you can experience stronger, clearer and faster Wi-Fi signal everywhere in a home, office, school or public places.

Questions & Answers

Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro (with Retina display) quad-core Intel Core i7 2.3GHz

Any issues with software that has not been updated to take advantage of the retina display?

Asked by Mark Sugarberg from MA | Jun 12, 2012
Best Answer
Not that I have heard of. The computer ships with a special version of the current operating system, OS X Lion, which offers you the ability to choose from several different resolutions. Applications that have not been updated will look the same as they would on the non-retina MacBook Pros, except maybe the text will look better automatically! I suspect your best bet is to visit an Apple Store in person.

Does the 15" MacBook Pro come with a built in DVD/CD Hard Drive

Asked by Joseph Traino, III from MD | Jul 11, 2012
Best Answer
No, it does not. The DVD/CD drive was removed from this iteration of the MacBook Pro. Like the MacBook Air, the 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina Display benefits with a thinner and lighter form factor in return for the non-inclusion of a DVD/CD slot. Apple made the new MacBook Pro compatible with a SuperDrive, on the other hand. It is one option for people who still need a DVD/CD drive.
