Apple slimmed down the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina with the late 2013 update and adds significant battery life compared to the 2012 model.
The improvements are thanks to new Intel 4th generation processor that delivers enough power to make the 13-inch Macbook Pro Retina a primary notebook and offering a full day of battery life in our real world usage.
Apple’s high-resolution Retina Display delivers amazingly crisp text and photos, offering one of the best looking notebook displays on the market. The new Intel Iris graphics deliver more power than the previous generation, for a better experience while using this pixel-dense display.
The $1,299 entry level price puts it within reach of more shoppers, and it is well worth the added $100 over the non Retina MacBook Pro.
