Apple's most advanced notebook to date.
Thin, light and powerful, the 2014 MacBook Pro is a laptop that's versatile enough to fit the needs of everyday users and the high-demand workload of today's professionals. The latest MacBook Pro features a stunning Retina display with over 5 million pixels, high-performance fourth-generation Intel processors, powerful apps, and one of the world's most advanced operating systems, OS X Yosemite. No corners were cut when crafting this intelligently designed computer.
Retina display. Multimillion-pixel view.
When you pack so many pixels into a display - over 5 million - 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. A spectacular 2880-by-1800 resolution lets you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. And text is so sharp, you'll feel like you're 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" 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 2.8GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.0GHz. And every model comes standard with 16GB of superfast 1600MHz memory. All of which means the 15" MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up, wherever your travels take you.
Iris and Iris Pro Graphics. Flawless onscreen performance.
The 15" MacBook Pro has a phenomenal display - 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, choose the 15‑inch model that combines the power of Iris Pro Graphics with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M. Thanks to 2GB of GDDR5 memory, you see many more frames per second in 3D games and get greater speed and responsiveness for all your video projects.
Long-lasting battery. Up to a 9-hour charge, 30-day standby. time.
The 15" model up to 8 hours. That's 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's 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.
Ultrafast all-flash storage. There's a reason it's called "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 PCle-based flash storage with incredibly fast read and write performance. So you can import huge photo libraries in no time flat. And on the 15" 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. Since these MacBook Pro models come with up to 1TB of flash storage, you can keep all your important files with you.3 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.
Thunderbolt 2. Fast and extremely advanced I/O.
Fast and versatile, Thunderbolt 2 provides 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.
You 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.
Multi-Touch trackpad and backlit keyboard.
In OS X, Multi‑Touch 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‑Touch 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.
Powerful apps included.
Out of the box, MacBook Pro is already a document-creating, number-crunching, presentation-sharing, photo-editing, movie-making, and music-producing powerhouse. That's because it includes six powerful productivity and creativity apps: Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand - all of which have been beautifully updated for OS X Yosemite6. Not to mention all the other incredible apps, including Safari, Mail, and iBooks, which are perfect for the things you want to do and the things you need to do. And, of course, there are thousands more apps to discover at the Mac App Store.
