When Apple announced updates to its MacBook Pro line in June 2012, we expect a slimmer, new designs and high-resolution screen. Although it must be done as the Retina Display, the standard has not eliminated the MacBook Pro.
Enter the mid-2012 MacBook Pro models. Although the design is like many years before, what is the meaning of the product. Skin and adding USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt connectivity distinguish
Now has a 15-inch, 2.6GHz Intel Quad-Core i7 in the office for a while. “And” option impressive professional machine, or classic design has been undergoing a bit “over the years?
The design is based on Apple products. E ‘in the box provided in the product itself, see the aluminum MacBook Pro, no doubt, have a very elegant and stylish.
But the design is not as innovative as the past. They sit next to the machine three years older and did not immediately notice the difference between the two. Giveaway signs is a small shift in some new images and keyboard ports and connections on the side of the machine. E ‘with the latest model of elegance, or how easy it is to use a compromise, but wonder why Apple has done everything possible for this version. Maybe he’s too busy for their spirited display model retina.
Our list of complaints is small, but it is not a perfect machine, too many iterations of the series. Current MacBook Pro owners will be all too aware of the frustration some: edge a little “hot” and it is not practical for the wrist if they are not protected, and USB (and other) connections are arranged so closely that every sweet toss out USB does is to sit and play with all the other beautiful. We believe that these issues have been done for generations – indeed small enough adjustment for a large company as powerful as Apple?
But if the MacBook Pro module, it’s great. Perfect backlit keyboard, the keys have just the right amount of movement and control for backlight and screen brightness is very useful when working in dark or light conditions.
Screen display 1440×900 pixels may not seem as high as some competition out there, because frankly, it does not. For an additional £ 80 per shiny Apple 1680×1050 version installed, even though the reflective properties may or out-on-the-go work a little more difficult lighting conditions. ” However, depending on the screen to leave, because there is no doubt that the MacBook Pro is an excellent viewing angle and brightness of a competitor in several competitions.
Unlike the retina model, new Pro benefits adjustments not size or weight. A 2 kg of body weight, it is annoying when reporting, but many professionals may want to consider this model to a simple desktop replacement. If the 15-inch model looks too big, it is still considered cheap and (obviously) a 13-inch version of the smaller ones.
MacBook Pro can make wise heat hot enough, what remains to heating above and below the keyboard. This may seem hot to the touch, especially if you want to work with him on his knees. Compared with the previous model, at least in our initial tests, the model 2012 is no longer hot, and so run the fan noise approx. For a period of months and years, however, does not guarantee a greater demand on the machine that will cost more.
The current MacBook Pro users who are considering an upgrade, you do not see the physical changes, the best experience, at least not in the standard version. The first purchase should think bigger than the 2012 version is the one to go: let’s face it, Apple came in 2013, the series forward with a redesign. Of course, this is not confirmed, but we suspect the face lifted model will be in the car for 12 months.
Part of what Pro is that in the final stage. At the center of this particular post, the model is an i7 2.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz, plus there are two groups of 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 SDRAM to 8GB in total. Unlike the retina model, no possibility to update the Pro model with 16 GB of RAM. Memory is managed by drive 750GB, 5400rpm hard drive, or (much) more money, you can opt for a solid state drive (SSD) up to 512GB in size.
These figures translate into smooth operation. We deal with large files and AIFF audio Photoshop sit happily in the background with dozens of PSD file is loaded, all without asking general.
Operating system OS X Lion – the mountain lion is a free update for all those who do not buy it just installed on our test machine – it works without problems and offer all these great “Appley” gestures, hand, eye, and so on.
Launchpad, Mission Control and more quickly establish a regular part of your daily workflow. If you are not using Mac OS X, it is easy to use, although it is an experience unlike Windows machines – other firmware or operating system can cause the first to switch between the two.
Or you can do both. Boot Camp configuration – Apple’s proprietary software licenses is the norm – and you will be able to partition the hard drive of the second operating system such as Windows or Linux. Of course, you have to buy a second operating system at extra cost, but it might be worth it.
MacBook Pro, despite its power, not just in machine hardcore gamer. Steam users know only too well that not many games that run on the platform Mar. Maybe Mac is not only a platform for professional players have made design, video editor, and others. We know that it is good enough to cut in both areas, but there is a lot of money to part with if you play point run to buy it is computer games.
Apple also has – finally! – You need to train to improve transfer speed USB 3.0. There are two doors on this model, and a single Thunderbolt and FireWire 800 ports to use is compatible with any format that you want to protect. There’s also an Ethernet port, SD card reader and across, the optical drive to read DVD and CD. We believe this can last MacBook Pro has the optical drive when the model retina – Ultrabook competitor models – is anything to go by. There is no support for Blu-ray, a feature that has been ignored by Apple.
