Review of My 15.4" MacBook Pro With Retina Display - the Perfect Gift

Updated on March 15, 2014

My MacBook Pro Laptop Has Top Notch Resolution

That beautiful image is a photograph of my MacBook Pro 15.4" Laptop With Retina Display, with an iPhoto image opened on the screen. You can see that it makes a beautiful gift.

I must say that I'm a Mac woman, through and through. I've owned four Mac computers, and no PCs (although I've used them at the workplace). This laptop has more capacity and ease of use, than any of the others.

I love the intuitive function of all my Mac computers. The laptop exceeds my expectations, for a large laptop that's actually less than half the size of of my favored 24" Intel Mac, which sits on the desktop, mostly unused.

The 15.4" Laptop starts up in less than two seconds after it opens. It takes just a flash to enter the password, and I'm up and using it again.

I knew I needed a lighter weight laptop, but weight wasn't the only consideration - I wanted my new laptop to be super flat, have the ultimate in resolution, and be lightweight too!

My photo shows the beautiful quality of the fine resolution on my laptop.

I Needed a Responsive Trackpad

Due to some nerve problems that affect my touch I wasn't even certain that any touchpad would satisfy my needs - but this one does!

The MacBook Pro 15.4" Laptop with Retina Display has a trackpad that's big and so effective for me. It's ultra smooth glass surface makes all clicks easy.

I Needed Crisp Screen Resolution

As a visual artist, I sometimes experience eyestrain (that's why I got the 24" Intel Mac), so resolution was critical to my decision making about the question of whether or not to buy my first laptop. This Retina Display simply took my breath away.

First, the salesman showed me the MacBook Pro, in two sizes, and the Air model, but I was hesitant, envisioning further eyestrain from the small screen sizes.

Then he took me to the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and delight flooded me when I saw the screen. The images were fantastic - and today (if your computer's resolution is fine enough) you can see the beauty of this screen.

Most people who buy a retina laptop choose the smaller 13.3 version over the 15.4" laptop I bought.

Both have the same fine quality. I've never regretting buying my Macs.

 

I Needed a Speedy Laptop

My 24" Intel Mac was top notch, and about twenty times more powerful than my first computer, a Mac LCII, with only 10MB RAM. The Intel Mac was super speedy for the first several years.

Over the years I stuffed it full of my home videos and photographs, or it got clogged up with too many fragments, but the revolving rainbow became a sort of meditative icon in the past couple years, and paying to install more capacity got old, so I really wanted a fast new system.

My new Retina Display laptop downloads files from my videocam, and Pentax DSLRs - literally in a flash!

      A MacBook Pro laptop would be nice to own since I have heard so many good things about the visual and graphics quality of Mac's.

      I've been an Apple customer since 1982, and I recently bought this same computer - the MacBook Pro 15" with retina display. I agree that it's a wonderful computer.

      This is a great computer, except for gaming, where it lags high end PC gaming laptops.
