2:45 /

A faster processor, improved graphics, and USB 3.0 highlight a series of internal improvements in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro.

-- Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the fifteen inch MacBook Pro. 2012. Edition no it is not. The super fancy Retina Display it back to -- this is just the plain old ones they still make that and they still updating it. With some new components -- to beat changes inside. CPU from the latest ivy bridge generation. I had this case it's a Quad Core core I seven but a more major changes in patent graphics going from -- dean which these exit and for future -- now. Two Nvidia Sony and Nvidia graphics card with this. And then the third major -- is the USB ports are gone now replaced with a USB three point oh. Which will be great if you have some UB three point -- like an external hard drive hook up to it. And of course you still have that thunderbolt slash display port connection on the side -- can -- either go out to -- monitor. Or to hook up a thunderbolt peripheral -- they're probably more USB three point -- approvals -- political ones. You might find those -- more useful. On the outside his looks and feels exactly like. The last couple of generations of MacBook pro it's still a solidly built pretty attractive fairly thin for -- fifteen inch kind of laptop. But the competition is really starting to catch up now -- -- -- now that received fourteen. And fifteen inch ultra books the Retina Display MacBook Pro takes a big step -- it. His regular not written version of just a very expensive starts at 7099. It's a little bit dated now because -- basically hadn't seen design for a long time effective take a look at it. It is pretty fit for a fifteen inch flat definitely say that a retina version right here same thing -- -- laptop higher resolution display. A lot. Thinner and actually -- good feel lighter and well. You've still got all the things that I like about MacBook the excellent keyboard back with -- of course the gigantic glass multi touch track and has all those cool guest here's. That other laptops try to mimic but we don't really do as good job of mine may not against the for -- of these cases that -- screen. Is -- 1440 by 900. Screen you can actually get a 16100. By at 1050. Upgrade we have to pay more for that. For 700 dollars I'd like a higher resolution on the default screen other than that is still one of those universally useful mid -- -- apps you can buy. But I have to admit if you're gonna shell out 799 for this you -- wanna save up a little bit more and get that cooler retina version as long you can live without the optical drive in the ethernet Jack. Otherwise you me and that feeling just a little bit systematic and I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the fifteen inch MacBook Pro.
