Incredibly powerful. By design.A notebook so thin, so light, and so powerful it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. A notebook designed for the future, but ready to use today.Less has never been more.It may be incredibly thin and light, but MacBook Pro with Retina display is also incredibly powerful. To achieve all that in a single design required relentless focus and a willingness to make bold decisions. Every millimeter was designed, engineered, built, and assembled to the most exacting performance standards. Bulky legacy technologies like the spinning hard drive and optical disc drive were left behind in favor of newer, higher-performance technologies — PCIe-based flash storage, for example. Flash is not only much faster and more reliable than a traditional hard drive, it takes up 90 percent less space. Which is one of many reasons MacBook Pro isn’t just extremely capable, it’s extremely portable, too.
The Force Touch trackpad. A whole new level of responsiveness.Unlike traditional trackpads, the new Force Touch trackpad makes it easy to click anywhere on the surface. Sensors accurately detect how much pressure you’re applying and respond accordingly, yet it feels the same as the trackpad you’re accustomed to. In addition, a new Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback — a tactile response from the trackpad to your fingertip — whenever you perform certain tasks, like trimming a clip in iMovie or aligning annotations in a PDF.Force Touch adds a new dimension to the Mac experience beyond the intuitive Multi‑Touch gestures you’re familiar with. Its sensitivity is customizable, too, allowing you to adjust how much pressure is needed to register a click. And the Force Touch trackpad can even tell whether you’re clicking with your thumb or another finger, adjusting the sensitivity level automatically.A display so advanced, the difference is clear.The Retina display is a breakthrough — any way you look at it. We pushed the limits of technology to create a pixel density so high, you can see everything you’re doing with perfect clarity and make edits with pinpoint accuracy. Not only is it an incredibly high-resolution display, it has an integrated design that achieves a level of fit and finish never before possible. The Retina display doesn’t sit behind a layer of glass, it is the glass. Which means you get all the benefits of a state-of-the-art display — vibrant colors, high contrast, and wide viewing angles — with very little glare. So there’s more to see, and even less to distract you from your work.
