Let’s move on from the 13-inch devices and lets put the spotlight on the 15-inch ones, because they come with faster processing speeds. Apple fitted the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display with a 2.4 GHz quad-core processor. The company also fitted its top-of-the-line 15-inch notebook with a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.

“The MacBook Pro with Retina display features the world’s highest resolution notebook display,” explained Apple in a press release. “Whether you’re reading emails, writing text, editing home movies in HD or retouching professional photography, everything appears vibrant, detailed and sharp, delivering an unrivaled viewing experience. The MacBook Pro with Retina display features flash storage that is up to four times faster than traditional notebook hard drives, and delivers improved reliability, instant-on responsiveness and up to 30 days of standby time.”
