The all-new MacBook Pro pushes the limits of notebook performance!


It has a stunning Retina Display with over 5 million pixels. An all-flash architecture built for speed. The latest quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and next-generation NVIDIA graphics. And an incredibly thin and light design. You've never seen anything like it. Because there's never been anything like it.

Measuring a mere 0.71 inches and weighing only 4.46 pounds, the completely redesigned MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users. The world's highest resolution notebook display with over 5 million pixels--3 million more than an HD television--the MacBook Pro with Retina display has such a high pixel density that the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.

The MacBook Pro includes two high-speed Thunderbolt ports and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals. And it comes standard with automatic graphics switching that provides performance when you need it and energy efficiency when you don't. You'll also get up to 7 hours of battery life while on the go.

This version of the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (model MC975LL/A) features a 2.3 GHz Core i7 quad-core processor, 256 GB of flash storage, and 8 GB of installed RAM. Other features include ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an SDXC card slot, and an HDMI video output (see full specifications below).This Mac comes pre-installed with OS X 10.7 Lion, but it is eligible to a free upgrade to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. When Mountain Lion becomes available in July, Apple's Up-To-Date program page for details on how to request your copy of Mountain Lion.

Apple's OS X Mountain Lion Up-to-Date upgrade is available to all customers who purchase a qualifying new Mac system from Apple or an Apple Authorized Reseller on or after June 11, 2012. Customers who purchase a qualifying Mac between June 11, 2012 and the date when Mountain Lion is available in the Mac App Store will have 30 days from the OS X Mountain Lion release date to make a request.

Mountain Lion introduces innovative features including the all new Messages app, Notification Center, system-wide Sharing, AirPlay Mirroring, Game Center, and the enhanced security of Gatekeeper. With iCloud built into the foundation of OS X, Mountain Lion makes it easier than ever to keep your content up to date across all your devices.


Breakthrough Retina Display: At 5.1 million pixels (220 pixels-per-inch), the Retina display's pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2880-by-1800 resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. You'll see fine details and textures in photos like never before, and even tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnail. The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 percent less reflection and 29 percent higher contrast than the previous generation.

Flash Storage Architecture: With its entirely flash-based architecture, the MacBook Pro with Retina display makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive. And when combined with a precision engineered aluminum unibody design, the new MacBook Pro is the lightest MacBook Pro ever and nearly as thin as a MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro's flash storage architecture also delivers improved reliability, instant-on responsiveness, and 30 days of standby time. It's also up to four times faster than traditional notebook hard drives, enabling the MacBook Pro with Retina display to play four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 1080p HD video from internal storage.

Intel Core i7 Quad-Core Processing: The MacBook Pro with Retina display packs plenty of power thanks to the latest Intel Core i7 processor, which features a faster processor, more powerful graphics, and a memory controller integrated into a single chip. The third-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 has a 2.3 GHz speed, which can dynamically accelerate up to 3.3 GHz to match your workload thanks to updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology.

Automatic Graphics Switching: You'll get excellent graphics flexibility with two video processors--the discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M processor (with 1 GB of GDDR5 video memory) for heavier workloads and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 processor for better battery life on the go. When using your MacBook Pro with Retina display for everyday activities like surfing the Web or checking your email, the integrated, energy-efficient Intel HD Graphics 4000 processor ensures that everything runs smoothly. But when you need more horsepower for things like playing 3D games, editing HD video, or even running CAD software, the MacBook Pro will automatically switch to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M processor for better responsiveness.

High-speed Thunderbolt and USB 3 Ports: Two high-speed Thunderbolt ports allow the MacBook Air to transfer data at lightning-fast speeds and connect displays like the Apple Thunderbolt Display, enabling you to turn this highly portable notebook into a highly versatile workstation. And with two USB 3 ports, you'll be able to connect the latest USB 3 devices and access a pipeline that's up to 10 times faster than USB 2.

Integrated HD FaceTime Webcam: You'll be able to easily connect with friends, family, and business colleagues using the MacBook Pro's HD 720p FaceTime camera, which is integrated into the thin bezel above the display and features three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera. And with Apple's FaceTime application, you're not limited to video chats with other Macs--you can now make video calls to iPhone and iPod touch users.

    Awesome retina display 11/27/2013

    This is the laptop I have been looking for. I can load VMWare / Windows and have both a Mac & PC with all of the horsepower I will ever need. Great Product...!

    great mac! 8/28/2013

    The mac comes with Retina display an an HDMI Port! No optical drives, so if you have those pesky softwares that come in CD's to install, you are SOL, since this laptop does not come with a CD player! Overall a fast machine, turns on super-quick and is pretty fast... have to install fewer programs since only comes with 256g SSD... not enough!!

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Great product, but DOA 8/6/2013

    The MacBook Pro is awesome. Unfortunately this one died soon after I received it. It's under warranty, so it's been sent back to Apple.

    MacBook 7/30/2013

    Because Apple monitors the prices of it devices, it is hard to find a great deal sometimes for Macs. Fortunately, Rakuten offered $250 worth of rewards points and a rebate which made it a really good deal.

    Macbook Pro Retina 15" 7/10/2013

    The screen is pleasant to the eyes and the aluminum body is extremely well built. On the other side, my retina screen is manufactured by LG v1, hope it doesn't get any image retention issue.

    It's Apple, so it's gotta be great! 7/7/2013
    Anthony R. from Scottsdale, AZ  

    This is a great value item and it is everything that was advertised. Apple products are exceptional and I have been a Microsoft PC guy most of my life. Apple rocks and this latest MacBook Pro is absolutely outstanding. I would recommend Apple products to anyone, especially if you are into the creative or want to develop the creative within you! Long live Apple!

    Now I know what all the fuss is about! 4/29/2013

    I've always been a Windows/Non Mac laptop user, and hesitated making the switch, Now that I have, I am so glad I did, and wondering why it took me so long! This laptop is fast, effective, and does everything that any other laptop can do, quicker. I love the extras like Garage Band. If you're into art, movie making, music making...this is the laptop you need!

    A great value for an Apple. 4/12/2013

    This was hands-down the best deal for a 15" MBP (thanks Dealzmodo!). It was just $200 more than a used one I was considering, but has a faster processor & Retina screen. I'm neutral about the 256GB SSD, as this is the first I've ever owned. So far so good: it's super quiet and doesn't seem to get as hot as my previous non-unibody MBP. Lightroom 4 runs super smooth and processing RAW images is pleasantly quick and lag-free.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    amazing laptop 4/3/2013

    Have been using Windows laptops for my entire life. So, I thought why not give Mac Book pro a try. From the time I opened the box, I am truly amazed by the built quality and screen. I had a misconception that switching from Windows to Mac is tough, but it's really not that bad. I am loving my new Mac Book. Pros: -Amazing design and built quality. -Awesum screen -Extremely good back-lit keyboard. Cons: - A bit higher price tag (which is really worth). - Switching from Windows to Mac may take some time.

    With LG display panel 3/28/2013
    K. Park from Lynnwood, WA  

    If you know about "image retention problem" of the mMBP, this might fall into that issue. Manufactured in China. I think the newer version of this laptop is made in USA and has only Samsung display, which is known for better and lasting displays. Anyway, I am really satisfied with the product. It's worth your investment.

    New perception about Macbook 9/21/2012
    Kevin Baltodano R from Costa Rica  

    This Retina model really is worthy the price. The SSD and 1600MHz memory boosts the system and makes it very responsive and fast. Similar products from competitors are about the same price or even higher, thus lacking the reputation from Apple on it's very well built computers. It's a great system, and I have no doubt that it will keep it's value for a couple of years, unlike products from the competition that lose their value in a few months of usage.

    Excellent for web development 9/6/2012

    I bought this laptop for use developing websites. It isn't disappointing. Fast, responsive, and stylish, I'd recommend it to anyone who needs a computer for serious work or anyone else who can afford it. Only negative that I've encountered so far: the WiFi is really slow when using an external display with the laptop screen closed. I suspect this is because the antennas are built into the screen.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No
