Read the 2015 15-Inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display Review.


15-Inch MacBook Pro Review:


Apple released a brand new version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display just a few weeks prior to its big annual Worldwide Developers Conference, and we took it for a spin.
 The updated machine gets super fast flash storage, as well as the new Force Touch trackpad, an improved dedicated GPU and an extra hour of battery life. It didn’t get new processors, but in practice, it’s still a worthwhile upgrade for those who need the might and screen real estate of a larger laptop.

Basics

  • 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor
  • 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM
  • 512GB of PCIe-based flash storage
  • Intel Iris Pro and AMD Radeon R9M370X w/ 2GB of RAM graphics cards
  • 15.4-inch 2880 x 1800 Retina display
  • MSRP: $2,499 as tested
Pros
  • New flash storage speeds things up considerably
  • Force Touch trackpad is especially useful for pro creative tasks
Cons
  • Same processor as last year’s model
The Retina MacBook Pro is, at this stage, a true design classic. When it first debuted, it was a marvel of engineering in terms of Apple’s ability to fit a machine with professional caliber specs into a package that is remarkably portable; three years later, the industrial design of the product is emblematic of craft, if somewhat easier to take for granted since it’s been around for some time.
As Apple’s largest current laptop, the 15-inch Retina MBP isn’t going to work for everyone – it’s also the heaviest at just under four and a half pounds. The trade-offs of size and weight for exceptional display quality, plus ample screen real estate, as well as long-lasting battery life and improved graphical power vs. other models are easy pills to swallow for people who need those features, however.
This computer remains my favorite road warrior in terms of actually getting stuff done; the larger footprint isn’t optimal for things like working on an airplane, where larger passengers like me, combined with people who recline their seats (ban reclining seats by the way) can equal preciously little room for opening the lid of a larger laptop. But when you install yourself at a desk wherever you happen to land, you’ll value the extra screen space, especially if you work in a creative field or coding capacity.
