A groundbreaking Retina display. A new force-sensing trackpad. All-flash architecture. Powerful Intel processors. Together, these features take the notebook to a new level of performance. And they will do the same for you in everything you create.

Features include:

Retina Display
When you pack so many pixels into a display — over 4 million on the 13‑inch model and over 5 million on the 15‑inch model - 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 2560 x 1600 resolution on the 13‑inch MacBook Pro and an equally impressive 2880 x 1800 resolution on the 15‑inch MacBook Pro let 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.

Force Touch Trackpad
The new Force Touch trackpad takes all the capabilities of Multi-Touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downward pressure you apply. This lets you have a deeper connection to your content, bringing more functionality right to your fingertip. It also introduces haptic feedback to MacBook Pro - allowing you not just to see what’s happening on the screen, but to feel it.

Advanced Intel Processors
With the fifth-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 processor, the 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Retina display lets you take your most performance-hungry apps on the road. That means wherever you can take your camera, you can take your entire digital photo studio. Hyper-Threading technology, which enhances performance by letting each core handle multiple tasks simultaneously, is included in every model. And with speeds up to 3.1GHz, shared L3 cache up to 4MB, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.4GHz, these processors are ready for just about anything.

Longer Lasting Batteries
The 13‑inch MacBook Pro lasts up to 10 hours between charges. And the 15‑inch model lasts up to 9 hours. That’s an hour longer than previously for each model. And they deliver 12 hours and 9 hours of iTunes movie playback, respectively. 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.
