Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch, Retina Display (2014)

The Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch, Retina Display (2014) ($1,299, as tested) is the newest base model in the line, with a 2,560-by-1,600-resolution screen, speedy Intel processor, and excellent connectivity, particularly with its pair of 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports. It lasted more than 13 hours on our battery rundown test while topping our performance benchmark tests. These improvements help the latest 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro replace the previous version as our Editors' Choice for high-end ultraportable laptops.

Design and Features Design-wise, if you've seen one 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, you've seen them all. This year's iteration has the same, familiar all-aluminum exterior and glossy glass covering the 13.3-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen. It still measures 0.71 by 12.35 by 8.62 inches (HWD) and weighs 3.38 pounds.

The high-contrast keys are visible in both bright light and in a totally darkened room, thanks to efficient backlighting. The keyboard feel is very good, with convex keys and solid springs to help ensure that any typos are your own fault. The glass-covered trackpad supports one-, two- and three-finger multitouch gestures, and you can connect most Bluetooth keyboards, mice, and external trackpads to the system in seconds.

The Retina Display has a 2,560-by-1,600 resolution, which translates into a 16:10 aspect ratio. In comparison, the Acer Aspire S7-392-5410's 1,920-by-1,080-resolution display and the Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch's 2,560-by-1,440-resolution screen both have a 16:9 aspect ratio. The extra pixels can give photo, video, or spreadsheet editors the ability to clearly display images that would overwhelm a screen with a lower resolution. Note that your experience may vary, as apps that haven't been updated for the Retina Display may show blockier text and images. In any case, OS X automatically scales items on the screen by default to make some windows show up in approximately 1,280 by 800, which is a good thing. If it were displaying at true 1-to-1 pixel all the time, then icons, menu items, and text would look tiny.

Port selection remains excellent. There's an HDMI port, a headset jack, an SD card reader, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and two USB 3.0 ports on its outer edges. You can use the Thunderbolt ports to connect to an iMac and use it as your external display, or connect the MacBook Pro to an external mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt display natively. Apple, along with a wide selection of third-party vendors, make adapters for DVI, Ethernet, VGA, and even external PCIe card expansion chasses (but devices connected thusly would run at the slower interface's speeds). Thunderbolt 2 has a theoretical maximum throughput of 20Gbps, and can be daisy chained through up to six devices per port (12 devices total).

The 128GB Flash Storage module (analogous to a solid-state drive on other systems) has a somewhat low capacity for a high-end ultraportable or ultrabook, but it's sufficient if you tote along a speedy Thunderbolt portable drive for your video files or database files. The drive has about 110GB available when you first set up the system. There's built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi for a speedy connection to the Internet and any network you connect to. If you need more storage, the $1,499 MacBook Pro configuration doubles the storage to 256GB, while the $1,799 model has 512GB and a slight speed bump to the processor. The included 8GB of system memory can be increased to 16GB for an extra $200 before purchase, but not after.

The system comes with Apple's iLife (GarageBand, iPhoto, iTunes, etc.) and iWork (Keynote, Numbers, Pages, etc.) software suites, which means you won't have to buy a copy of Microsoft Office unless you rely on Office's more obscure functions. The MacBook Pro 13-inch comes with a one-year warranty, and 90 days of phone technical support.

Performance The Intel Core i5-4278U processor with built-in Intel Iris 5100 graphics helps the MacBook Pro score some of the fastest multimedia test times, compared with ultrabooks like the Acer Aspire S7-392-5410, the Dell XPS 13 Touch, and the Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch. It finished the Cinebench R15 test with 279 points, the Handbrake test in a scant 2 minutes 32 seconds, and the Photoshop CS6 test in 4:11. It was able to beat the other systems because its processor has a higher clock speed than even the Core i7 processor in the Toshiba Kirabook. Oddly enough, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet came the closest in terms of scores for these three tests, on account of its relatively fast Core i5 processor.

Performance on the 3D tests was very good, and while the 17 frames per second (fps) the MacBook scored on both Heaven and Valley at medium-quality settings aren't quite playable, the system has enough oomph to beat the other ultrabooks and tablets here on these tests. You can play browser-based games and titles like Diablo III and World of Warcraft, provided you use lower-quality settings.

Battery life was even more impressive than that of the last year's 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which lasted 11 hours 26 minutes on our rundown test. The current system lasted 13:41. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition scored 11:26, scored 11:26, but most other contenders lasted between 8.5 and 9.5 hours on the same test.

All of these improvements make an already-excellent ultraportable laptop even better. Thus, the new Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina is our Editors' Choice for high-end ultraportables. If the $1,300 asking price is within your budget, this is the laptop to buy.

For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 15‑inch MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 32GB of high‑performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.

MacBook Pro features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every 15‑inch model, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And now we’ve paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory standard, giving you fluid, real‑time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13‑inch model features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM — twice as much as the previous generation — which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most: creating amazing work.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers Radeon Pro Vega GPU options — the first discrete mobile Vega GPUs in a notebook. Vega, the same graphics architecture found in iMac Pro, delivers an enhanced compute engine and utilizes High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). HBM2 doubles the memory bandwidth to the GPU while doing so at considerably lower power, so more of the graphics power budget can be used by the GPU itself. The result is significantly faster graphics performance — up to 60  percent faster than the Radeon Pro 560X13 — for tackling demanding video, 3D, rendering, and compute workloads.

Now on every MacBook Pro, the Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.

Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.

Tap to move between tabs in Safari.

Touch and hold to see original versions of your photos while editing.

Flick your finger to adjust brightness and volume.

Slide to choose a font color in your Keynote slides.

Many of the built-in apps on your MacBook Pro have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and center. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.

Slide through the timeline while editing. The Touch Bar will change to match what you’re working on and bring up the tools you need from deep within the app.

Select a photo as a favorite, use auto-enhance, or quickly add your photo to an album. The Touch Bar brings editing tools out, too — like cropping and applying filters.

Jump to a location, fine-tune sounds, or turn your Touch Bar into a drum, piano, or audio recording control panel.

Type a message faster with predictive text. The Touch Bar can suggest frequent recipients and emoji when composing a message, too.

You can create shortcuts right in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari, and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.

MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s blazing fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2GB/s. The 15‑inch model is available with up to a 4TB SSD, and the 13‑inch MacBook Pro is available with up to a 2TB SSD — enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 Security Chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.

The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has a dynamic soundstage that feels and sounds much wider than its physical dimensions imply. Movies are more immersive. Music more room-filling. And three built-in mics form directional beams that capture your voice more clearly for FaceTime calls and talking to Siri.

The MacBook Pro keyboard has a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. Every MacBook Pro now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
