Apple Macbook Pro
It may be incredibly thin and light, but the all-new Apple MacBook Pro is also incredibly powerful. To achieve all that in a single design required relentless focus and a willingness to make bold decisions. Every millimetre was designed, engineered, built and assembled to the most exacting performance standards
The Retina display is a breakthrough — any way you look at it. We pushed the limits of technology to create a pixel density so high, you can see everything you’re doing with perfect clarity and make edits with pinpoint accuracy. Not only is it the highest-resolution display ever on a notebook, it has a new, more integrated design that achieves a level of fit and finish never before possible.
This Retina display doesn’t sit behind a layer of glass, it is the glass. Which means you get all the benefits of a state-of-the-art display — vibrant colours, high contrast and wide viewing angles — with very little glare. So there’s more to see, and even less to distract you from your work.
We designed every aspect of the all-new MacBook Pro with performance in mind. From the beginning, the entire internal structure was built to house the very best high-performance components: all-flash storage, the latest quad-core processors, powerful discrete graphics, massive amounts of memory.
Yet despite packing such an enormous amount of power into such a slim design, we still achieved an astonishing 7-hour battery life. We also found a way to integrate the highest-quality speakers we’ve ever designed for a notebook. And we engineered a new cooling system that draws in air from three sides of the notebook. Alone, each of these elements is an incredible accomplishment. Together, they make this MacBook Pro the world’s most advanced notebook.
Designing from the ground up meant completely rethinking which ports belong on a high-performance notebook. The all-new MacBook Pro features the fastest, most advanced I/O technology available. And it’s the first notebook ever to include two Thunderbolt ports, two USB 3 ports and an HDMI port — giving you the flexibility to connect multiple external displays, an HDTV and other high-performance devices.
Without a traditional optical drive, there’s room for ports conveniently located on both sides of the notebook. We even created a new, slimmer MagSafe 2 port to accommodate its thin, sleek design. So you can take this notebook anywhere. And be ready for anything.
LONG LASTING BATTERY
The all-new MacBook Pro has more than just processing power. It has an incredible amount of battery power too. So you can do more than ever — all on a single charge.
A seven-hour battery life is impressive for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, top-of-the-line processors and graphics, and a super-slim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in 95-watt-hour battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time. Which means you can put your MacBook Pro to sleep, and it’ll come back on instantly — after a day, a week or even a month. With Power Nap in OS X Mountain Lion, your MacBook Pro can continue to receive new email and calendar invitations while it’s asleep. And when it’s connected to a power source, it can download software updates and make backups with Time Machine. So the next time you open your notebook, everything’s right there waiting for you.
INTEL CORE i7
The all-new MacBook Pro comes with the fastest mobile quad-core processor on the market: the Intel Core i7. It’s the muscle behind the most powerful notebook we’ve ever built.
This notebook has the power to do amazing things. Third-generation Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors with a state-of-the-art 22-nanometre single-die micro-architecture provide the fastest quad-core performance ever in a notebook. Hyper-Threading technology allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core. And with speeds up to 2.7GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7GHz, these processors are great for running professional applications like Aperture and Final Cut Pro. They also support up to 16GB of super-fast 1600MHz memory. Which means the all-new MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up.
Graphics on the all-new MacBook Pro are so fast, smooth and realistic, you might just forget you’re looking at a computer screen.
The all-new MacBook Pro has a phenomenal display — and a GPU to match. Based on a next-generation Kepler architecture with 1GB of dedicated video memory, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor provides up to 60 per cent faster graphics performance than any notebook we’ve ever made.4 And it delivers enough power to drive the amazing five-million-pixel Retina display as well as two external displays. All while making the most graphics-intensive tasks — like rendering HD video and editing RAW photography — fast, fluid and incredibly lifelike.
Everything about the all-new MacBook Pro is high performance — even its I/O. Thunderbolt is the fastest, most versatile I/O available, and this notebook has two Thunderbolt ports. That’s a huge advantage when you need to connect to just about anything — external displays, RAID arrays, video capture devices, even FireWire peripherals (adapter sold separately) and Gigabit Ethernet networks (adapter sold separately). Combine that with two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port and an SDXC card slot, and in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with the all-new MacBook Pro as its centrepiece.
Meet the ultimate mobile creative studio. With an emphasis on mobile. Equipped with the latest three-stream 802.11n Wi-Fi5 and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you’re free to unplug and still stay connected — to your network, to your wireless peripherals and to the world.
AUDIO & VISUAL
You haven’t heard it all until you’ve heard the speakers inside the all-new MacBook Pro. For something so thin and light, the sound is huge. And with a wide dynamic range, optimal balance and a crisp, expressive quality, these speakers might sound too good to be true. That’s because we laboured painstakingly over the design to maximise the quality of every decibel you hear.
Dual built-in microphones are great for when you want to be heard. If you’re making a FaceTime call, for example, the mics reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use Dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
The FaceTime HD camera is built into the widescreen Retina display. So you can make 720p HD calls to someone else’s iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac with a FaceTime HD camera.
