When you pack so many pixels into a display — over 4 million on the 13-inch model — the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism. Text is pin sharp. A spectacular 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13-inch MacBook Pro let you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy.
More colour and contrast. Less glare.
The Retina display reduces glare up to 75 per cent while maintaining incredible colour and quality. In fact, it has a 29 per cent higher contrast ratio than a standard MacBook Pro display. Blacks are blacker. Whites are whiter. And everything in between is rich and vibrant. IPS technology gives you a wide, 178-degree view of everything on the screen, so you’ll see the difference at practically any angle. And you’re going to love what you see.
There’s a reason they call it “flash”.
You’ll notice a difference in whatever you do — starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid and responsive. It’s all thanks to flash storage, which gives you up to four times the performance of a traditional hard drive.4 So you can import huge photo libraries into Aperture in no time flat. 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. So whether it’s been 1 day or 30, your all-flash MacBook Pro will spring to life, from wherever you left off.
Thunderbolt. Data transfer is now lightning fast.
Thunderbolt technology gives you a single connection that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express. With two 10-Gbps data channels, you can transfer data up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800. And don’t worry about a single drive or peripheral tying up the Thunderbolt port: you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display. So with one tiny, streamlined port, you get lightning-fast transfer speeds and huge expansion capabilities. 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 MacBook Pro as its centrepiece.
Matching power for power.
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 battery gives you up to 1,000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time. 5
