Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro gets an internal makeover

Laptops
I'm Dan Ackerman. We are here taking a look at the new 2013 version of Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro, the model with Retina Display that actually still make the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro that's the only laptop Apple still has it, has an optical drive in it, but the primary product is definitely this guy and for the MacBook Air line, the primary product is a 13-inch MacBook Air. So, it's really weighing those two very carefully, you know, this is not quite as thin and light as the MacBook Air. You do get more powerful options. You do get that super high resolution better than 1080p display and of course, both the Air and the MacBook Pro, all the different sizes now have Intel's latest 4th generation core i-Series CPUs, otherwise known as Haswell, and you do get a little bit of a performance boost there. You get some better on-board graphics, these have Intel's pretty close to the best building graphics, Intel has the Iris graphics, but you also get the most important thing which is a series of battery life boost. We saw that in the Haswell MacBook Air earlier in 2013. Apple says that you should get about 9 hours of usage of this versus 8 hours in the 15th version of the Retina MacBook Pro. And of course you get 802.11ac, you got Thunderbolt 2, you get USB 3.0, pretty much all the things that current MacBooks have or the current premium UltraBook style laptops. And I'd say this is a little bit outside of the category of an UltraBook but it's certainly small enough to carry on everyday, if you don't mind just a little bit of weight. If you're a super lightweight traveler, you probably wanna go with that MacBook Air instead but if you need a high resolution, a lot of people want that better than 1080p resolution these days, this is one of the smallest, lightest ways to get it especially with of course OS 10. This comes with Mavericks' latest version pre-installed starting from its launch, so you get the new features in the new operating system. It's interesting to see that sort of match up with Windows 8.1 launching it just about the same time. So, anyone buying a new laptop this fall, whether it's a PC or Mac, gets new hardware and a new operating system. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the 2013 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro.
