Apple Macbook pro 15.4-inch Laptop with Retina Display – New Price Deal

Update - 2020.04.19

As we know that Apple is top end brand which produces iPhone, iPad, MacBooks. MacBook is famous series of Apple laptops. In this post, I am going to review latest Apple MacBook Pro 15.4-inch. Apple MacBook Pro 15.4-inch comes with Apples best quality display called as Retina Display. It is packed with the AMD Radeon R9 R9 M370X GPU graphics processor. Apple claims that it can perform 80 % better than previous year model regarding graphics performance. Now we are going to discuss pros and cons of this laptop.


MacBook has aluminum and glass unibody design like its previous version of MacBook. It has dimensions 0.71 by 14.25 by 9.75 inch (HWD), and its weight is up to 5 pounds. Look and feel wise every MacBook is looked better. And built quality of this device is better than other devices. Backlit, the chiclet-style keyboard feels cool while type anything on this laptop and gives comfort.


MacBook is more famous due to its display called as Retina display. The screen size of this laptop is 15.1 inch, and it gives resolution 2880 x 1800 pixels. This screen gives a much better performance. This laptop can play high-resolution videos like Full HD and 4K videos easily.

Performance (Processor, RAM, Graphic Card)

Now we are coming to the performance of this device, and this device is powered by two version of processors 2.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor (with 6 MB onboard L3 cache) Or 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor (with 8 MB onboard L3 cache).  And 8 GB DDR3 ram support this processor for effective performance.  For graphic performance, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1GB Graphics graphic processor is fit in this device 1GB dedicated graphics memory support this processor. I think this quite less specification when we compare price with other devices with the same price. I think MacBook is more expensive as compared to another manufacturer. But when we decided to buy Apple product no one thinks about the price of that product due to the reputation of Apple.

Memory And Battery Life

As per memory concerned, Apple MacBook Pro is equipped with 512 GB Flash Storage. And the company does not give any option to expand memory according to our requirement. As we discuss above that people, don’t think while purchasing Apple devices. Due to the brand value of the apple. Apple MacBook Pro is packed with Lithium Polymer (LiPo) type of battery.  And this battery gives much better battery backup around 5 hr.


When we talk about connectivity options. One headset jack two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and a USB 3.0 port on the left side of the laptop.  HDMI port, an SDXC card reader, and a second USB 3.0 port are provided on the right side of the laptop. With HDMI port, you can connect addition display to the MacBook Pro. Wifi and Bluetooth are provided for wireless connectivity. Here is Lack of USB C port on the MacBook Pro I think that is disappointing.

Operating System

MacBook Pro is running on Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion operating system. Mac Os is produced and designed by the Apple itself so this laptop gives better performance because here is The Best configuration of hardware with software. I think for getting The Best performance, we do not need to go for an advanced version of the hardware. Only we need to choose The Best configuration of hardware and software that is important.


Final Word

MacBook Pro is The Best laptop with high-end performance only one problem is here that problem is this laptop is too expensive. If you have that much budget, then go for this. The price of MacBook Pro on Amazon is around $1,299.00 which is not bad if we want Apple.
