Description

Macbook pro 13 2013

Last year’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display was a bit of an odd duck. Yes, it was the Retina Display-equipped 13-inch MacBook everyone had been waiting for, but it wasn’t the powerhouse performer the 15-inch version was, and it cost a lot more than a MacBook Air.

This year it’s back in a more powerful, less expensive package that makes a lot more sense: it’s now a Retina laptop that people can actually afford.

The 13-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro always caught my eye, but its price was originally prohibitive; $1,699 was a steep starting price. A year later, the entry point is $1,299, which, in Apple’s laptop landscape, isn’t so bad at all — and, in fact, is pretty close to what competitors charge for thin 13-inch laptops with super-high-res screens.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro (let’s agree to call it that, even though there is a thicker 13-inch Pro that Apple still sells) is still a tweener among Apple laptops: it’s heavier and thicker than the Air. The Air has better battery life. But the Retina Pro has a beautiful, far crisper screen, and better graphics. No, the 13-inch Retina Pro doesn’t have the workhorse quad-core processor or extra Nvidia graphics of the 15-inch Pro. It’s not the same computer. But, it’s not the same price, either: the entry-level 15-inch model is $700 more. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is Retina for Everyone…provided you can afford $1,299 for a laptop.

Consider it Apple’s version of an ultra-high-resolution ultrabook with vamped-up processing, or the thicker Retina Air you’ve always wanted. Is this year’s version the sweet-spot compact high-end MacBook you’ve been looking for? So far, signs point to yes.
