Now with more power behind every pixel, over 5 million of them.

Apple has a tradition of breaking down boundaries in technology and innovation, and the next line of MacBook Pro laptops follows closely to that tradition. Being one of the most widely used laptops by professionals, this new MacBook Pro with Retina Display (ME293LL/A) will enhance users' experiences further than ever before, with extremely fast processor upgrades, Intel Iris Graphics, lightning quick flash storage, radically thin design, extremely high-resolution color display, USB 3.0 connections, and more. At just .71 inches thin the next generation MacBook Pro with Retina Display is a breakthrough in engineering and built for extremely high levels of performance.

Retina Display - Multimillion-pixel view
When you pack so many pixels into a display ‚Äî over 5 million on the 15‚Äinch model, the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can‚Äôt discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism. A spectacular 28800-by-1800 resolution on the 15‚Äinch MacBook Pro lets you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. And text is so sharp, you‚Äôll feel like you‚Äôre reading email, web pages, and documents on a printed page.

The Retina display reduces glare while maintaining incredible color and quality. Its high contrast ratio results in blacker blacks and whiter whites. 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.

Fourth-generation Intel mobile processors - Serious power
The 15‚Äinch MacBook Pro with Retina display has the power to do even more amazing things. Fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processors provide the fastest performance ever in a MacBook Pro. You can make quick work of even the most complex tasks in professional apps like Final Cut Pro, thanks to speeds up to 2.0GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.2GHz. All of which means the 15‚Äinch MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up, wherever your travels take you.

Intel Iris Pro Graphics - Flawless onscreen performance
The 15‚Äinch MacBook Pro has a phenomenal display ‚Äî with the graphics power to match. Its fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor features Iris Pro Graphics with 128MB of embedded memory, which accelerates processor- and graphics-intensive tasks by acting as an ultrafast cache. For even more impressive graphics performance.

Faster all-flash storage - There's a reason they call it "flash"
You‚Äôll notice a difference in whatever you do ‚Äî starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid and responsive. It‚Äôs all thanks to the new PCle-based flash storage with even faster read and write performance ‚Äî up to 60 percent faster than the previous-generation MacBook Pro. So you can import huge photo libraries into Aperture in no time flat. The 15‚Äinch model, flash storage combines with quad-core processors and high-performance graphics to make quick work of even the most demanding editing tasks in Final Cut Pro.

And since this all-new MacBook Pro comes with 256GB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you, including large video and photo libraries. Flash doesn’t have any moving parts, which makes it extremely durable and quiet.Flash doesn’t have any moving parts, which makes it superdurable and quiet. 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, right where you left off.

Long-lasting battery - Up to a 8-hour charge, 30-day standby time
The 15‚Äinch MacBook Pro now lasts up to 8 hours between charges. That‚Äôs impressive battery life for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, state-of-the-art processors and graphics, and a superslim design, it‚Äôs absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time.

Thunderbolt 2 - The most advanced I/O gets 2x faster
Thunderbolt is the most advanced and most versatile I/O technology there is. The new MacBook Pro features the latest version — Thunderbolt 2. It delivers twice the throughput, providing up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you’re more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals and displays. You can connect massive amounts of storage and add a PCI expansion chassis. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 12 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.

Whether you choose the 13‚Äinch or 15‚Äinch model, you‚Äôll get two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports, an HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, and a headphone port. So in a matter of minutes you can build an entire professional studio with MacBook Pro as its centerpiece.

Audio and Visual
You haven’t heard it all until you’ve heard the speakers inside 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 labored painstakingly over the design to maximize 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.

Muli-Touch Trackpad and Backlit Keyboard
In OS X, Multi‚ÄTouch is an essential part of how you interact with your Mac. Using realistic, intuitive gestures, you can switch between apps, navigate your content, and get the most out of your desktop space. MacBook Pro features a Multi‚ÄTouch trackpad with a large, all-glass button surface. So you can tap, pinch, swipe, and click away comfortably.

Thin and light, MacBook Pro is designed to go anywhere — including places with less-than-stellar lighting. A built-in sensor detects changes in ambient light and adjusts the keyboard and display brightness automatically. So you’re never left in the dark.
