MacBook Pro with Retina Display – Incredibly Powerful. By Design
With its lightning performance, stunning visuals and incredibly compact, light design, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is the ideal notebook for enthusiasts and professionals alike. The all-new Force Touch trackpad, fifth-generation Intel Core processors, faster PCIe-based flash storage, longer all-day battery life, and an unbelievably sharp Retina display, take the MacBook Pro to a whole new level of performance, making it ready for any task you can bring to it
Less Has Never Been More
It may be incredibly thin and light, but MacBook Pro with Retina display is also incredibly powerful. Every millimetre has been designed, engineered, built and assembled to the most exacting performance standards. Bulky legacy technologies like the spinning hard drive and optical disc drive are left behind in favour of newer, higher-performance technologies such as PCIe-based flash storage. Flash is much faster and far more reliable than a traditional hard drive. And it takes up 90 per cent less space. Which is one of many reasons MacBook Pro isn’t just extremely capable, it’s extremely portable too.
Groundbreaking Retina Display
When you pack over four million pixels into a display the result is positively stunning. Designed so that images take on a new level of realism, the 2560x1600 resolution will allow you to see more of your high-resolution images than ever before. Text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading from a printed page. The Retina display maintains rich and vibrant colours and its high contrast ratio makes blacks blacker and whites whiter. It also includes IPS technology to enable a clear view from angles as wide as 178-degrees.
Force Touch Trackpad
With Multi-Touch in OS X, you can use realistic gestures on your trackpad like swiping or pinching to switch between apps, navigate your content, and get the most out of your desktop space.
Now Apple have pushed the trackpad even further. The Force Touch trackpad has been engineered to provide a responsive, uniform click, no matter where you press. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying. You can now use a Force click to enable useful capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press the trackpad. You’ll also experience haptic feedback — a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to what you see on the screen.
Longer Lasting Battery – Work or Play All Day
Once again Apple have managed to produce a faster, state of the art, high performance notebook in a compact, ultra-slim design and still improve the battery life over the previous generation. The 13” MacBook Pro with Retina Display lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge and will give you up to 30 days on standby.
Advanced I/O Technology
Due to the ultra-slim design of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Apple had to seriously consider which ports were necessary on a high-performance notebook. With two Thunderbolt2 ports, two USB 3 ports and an HDMI port you have the flexibility to connect multiple external displays, an HDTV along with other high-performance devices. Without a traditional optical drive, there’s room for ports conveniently located on both sides of the notebook. Even the slim MagSafe 2 port complements its thin, sleek design. Plus with Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you have the option to connect multiple Bluetooth accessories.
The widescreen 720p FaceTime HD camera will let your friends and family see more of you in video calls and ensure that everyone can fit into a picture without having to crowd around the display
Mac OS X El Capitan
OS X powers everything you do on a Mac. And because Apple design both the hardware and software, OS X El Capitan is engineered to take full advantage of your MacBook Air capabilities. Designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at, it comes with an amazing collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day.
Combined with your Multi-Touch trackpad, OS X lets you control your Mac with simple, intuitive gestures, allowing you to navigate, zoom and switch between apps with ease. Your favourite apps are easy to reach in the Dock, while Launchpad gives you quick access to everything.

It comes with amazing apps like Pages, Numbers, iPhoto, iMovie and Garageband that give you the platform you need for productivity and creativity, with thousands more great apps available for download from the App Store.
If you also own an iPhone or iPad it enables your Mac and iOS devices to work seemlessly together in ways no other computer can. You can make and receive calls on your Mac and send and receive both iMessage and SMS text messages. Start emails, documents or browsing sessions on one device and instantly pick it up on another.
