Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review

Competition in the world of laptops is quite heated, and to be on top of the game, laptop manufacturers are always improving their products to attract more customers. Appleā€™s MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a great example of such a product. This laptop is a market changer and will definitely raise the bar in this industry. With great features and performance, it is a system that everyone from the most tech savvy to relative novices will want to get their hands on thanks to amazing features.

Retina Display

Apple made the Retina Display on this laptop a priority, and making it better than the display on their 3rd-generation iPads tells it all. With 2880 x 1800 pixels, users can enjoy photo editing using applications such as Photoshop and Aperture, which are designed for the high-resolution. Apple definitely made the MacbookPro with precision and reduced glare by 75%. The laptop has a 178-degree view which makes it a perfect companion for presentations. It is possible to make out content when viewing the screen from the extremes. Apple has also optimized some of their applications for the Retina Display to ensure everything is working perfectly. Albeit the MacBook Pro has great display, it is not one of the brightest, as it has 223 lux, which is below the average 258.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Ease of typing and well-lit keys is the main focus when it comes to laptop keyboards, and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display took this into consideration. Even though the Delete and Return keys are rather small, using the Macbook Pro is easy especially because of the vast palm rest. There are direct action keys at the top, allowing quick access to features like volume control, Mission Control, Launchpad activation, and brightness control. Advanced users can enjoy using the trackpad to fire up the launched with a simple pinch by using their thumb and three fingers. Another amazing feature, though not a surprise, is the easy two-finger scrolling and smooth zoom through pinching.
