Overall Review

Apple MacBook Pro 15 inch Core i7 MD318HN/A is a Macintosh portable computer and is the second model after iMac, to be announced in Apple – Intel transition. It is a high-end model of the MacBook family and is a carry-over from Apple PowerBook G4, but it uses the Intel core processors instead of PowerPC G4 chips. This is the third generation MacBook Pro and is marketed as MacBook Pro with Retina display in order to differentiate it from the other models of the family. The Retina display MacBook Pro largely follows the styling of the previous generation with its aluminum enclosure and separated black keys. The most apparent body changes are a thinner chassis, and a display with a redesigned hinge and thinner bezel. The power button is now located on the keyboard rather than the upper right corner of the chassis. This laptop comes packed in a size of 18 mm x 358.9 mm x 247.1 mm and holds a weight of 2.02kg that gives stability to the device. The all new MacBook Pro comes with a stunning retina display that provides the world with a highest resolution notebook display. The device is thin and light weight and provides very powerful processing speed and graphics. The most amazing feature, its Retina display, which has 5.1 million pixels and the quad core processor, adds more texture and architecture to the device. And that's what makes it the most advanced notebook ever seen in the market. The screen of this notebook is as vivid as the users' imagination and the vision for the user is remarkably vibrant, detailed and sharp. MacBook Pro has all aluminium and glass unibody chassis with black plastic for the QWERTY keyboard. The left side of the notebook has a USB port of v.3.0 that is capable of transfering data ten times faster than the USB v.2.0. Two thunderbolt ports that support high resolution display and high performance data devices, set new standards in terms of speed, flexibility and simplicity. These help connect the device to a display or an external device for high-speed data transfer. MagSafe2 port acts as a power connector, and the 3.5mm universal headphone jack works as an A/V connector. The right side of the notebook is home for a SDXC card slot, an HDMI port and another USB v.3.0 port. These USB ports support up to 5Gbps of data transfer speed, whereas the two thunderbolt ports provides up to 10Gbps of transfer speed. This device has a built-in sensor that detects changes in ambient light and adjusts the keyboard brightness automatically, so to keep users in constant light. With the very responsive touchpad, users can tap, scroll, pinch, and swipe using its multi-touch gestures facility that directly controls what is on the screen in a more fluid, natural, and intuitive way. When the users scroll down on the trackpad or magic mouse, the document will also scrolls down. Likewise, when one scrolls up, the web page too scrolls up, whereas swiping to the left direction will also move the photos in the same direction. There are many more gestures that make all the work done on the Mac a great experience one can ever have on a computer. Users will feel a complete difference while working on the device as starting up takes just seconds, applications launch very quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid and responsive. The credit for this functionality goes to the flash storage, which comes with fourfolds of performance seen in a traditional hard drive. Since MacBook Pro comes with up to 768GB of flash storage, users can keep all their important files stored safe, including large video and photo libraries. It also has the ability to standby for up to a month, which is simply superb, as users can resume the same task where they left off, no matter the gap is a day or a month. This amazing piece of gadget enables users to manage all their content easily with the help of iCloud, which is seamlessly integrated in all the applications such as iTune, Photo Stream, Documents, Instagram, Epicurious, Evernote, iBooks, Calendar, Contacts and Mail, Backup and Restore, Find My Mac and Find My Friends, so that they can access all their content on all their devices and stay up to date wherever they go. iCloud stores the content and allows one access their music, photos, calendars, contacts, documents, and more from whatever device they are on. So if one takes a picture with their iPhone or makes changes to the meeting schedule on the iPad, iCloud makes sure everything appears on your MacBook Pro too. If users want to listen to their favorite songs, re-watch a classic movie or laugh at some hilarious gag with a friend, iCloud is the solution to that all. It automatically synchronises all the data according to the usability, thus making it easier for the users to locate them quickly whenever and wherever they want. With iCloud, users can read their favorite book anytime and anywhere, as as soon as one purchases a new book from the iBookstore, it appears on the purchase history of the iBookstore and iCloud pushes all the notes, bookmarks or highlights, one has made to the book while reading, to all the other iOS devices automatically and instantly. The purchased book can be downloaded at any of your devices anytime without paying additionally for that. Apart from this, iCloud stores all the necessary stuff needed for the daily tasks, such as calendars, contacts, and e-mail, and keeps it up to date across all the devices. If the user deletes an e-mail, adds a calendar event, or updates a contact, iCloud makes all these changes everywhere. Same is the case with notes, reminders, and bookmarks, iCloud automatically backs it up daily via Wi-Fi once the device is on. Users can restore all their lost stuff with the help of iCloud backup that does a heavy lifting. All you have to do is to connect the device to Wi-Fi and enter your Apple ID and password. The personal data along with the purchased music, movies, TV shows, applications, and books will appear on the device automatically.

The large and all glass button surface of the touchpad allows the users to tap, pinch, swipe, and click away comfortably. This OS X gives a long battery life by dimming the screen in low-light conditions and even regulating processor activity between keystrokes. With OS X on the board, the work related or fun related applications, that are mostly used, are simple to find and open. This operating system provides a handy place on the desktop called Dock, which stores and launches the favorite applications very fast and makes switching between them truly smooth.

The launchpad is a full-screen home for all the applications that lets one arrange them the way they want, group them in folders, and delete them with ease and the applications that are purchased from the Mac Application Store will automatically appear in Launchpad, so one can browse them very easily and quickly. 'Finder' gives easy access to all the files on the system. It lets the users find, organize, and access practically almost everything on their MacBook including applications, files, folders, hard drives, and shared computers on their network. These files can be sorted easily by kind, application, date modified, date added and size etc. OS X also offers system wide support for gorgeous, full-screen applications that use the whole display and users can open multiple full-screen applications at once, along with multiple of them stored in windows and switching between the full-screen and the desktop is easy and buttery smooth. Mission Control gives information on all the windows and full-screen applications that are in use, and allows one instantly navigate among them. The Auto Save feature of this operating system will automatically saves the work, while one is working. 'Versions' creates a new version of a document each time the user opens it and every hour while they are working. This helps in putting a minimal impact on the disk drive. The OS X Lion is also protected against viruses and other malicious applications, and what is the most interesting part is that it does not interrupt the working of the users with constant security alerts and sweeps as Apple responds quickly to online threats and automatically delivers security updates.
