The Apple MacBook Pro ME293LL/A is a bestselling 15-inch 2013 laptop that received positive reviews for its brilliant retina display, excellent quad-core performance and graphics power, rich upgrade options, blazing fast SSD storage, and a surprisingly thin profile for a 15-incher. The reviewers however were critical of its expensive base model, moderate battery life compared to the 13-inch MacBooks and a display that somewhat suffers from outdoor glare. Overall the ME293LL/A is a great choice for power users who want a good balance of performance, portability and sturdiness.

    With an updated Intel processor and speedier Flash Storage, the MacBook Pro 15-inch (2013) leapfrogs over the competition with workstation-class performance and a nine-hour battery life.

    The slimmer body and higher-res screen of the original Retina MacBook Pro was a revolutionary leap. This revamp adds modest internal upgrades for modest improvements, but price cuts to both the 13-inch and 15-inch models sweeten the deal.

    This year’s Retina MacBook Pro packs some great new hardware features that were absent on the first-gen device, including Thunderbolt 2 (20 Gbps maximum throughout vs. 10 for the original) and 802.11ac Wi-Fi networking.

    The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is probably the best all-around laptop on the market. It checks every box, from “portable enough” to “insanely powerful” to “beautiful trackpad” to “reasonably priced for its market.”

    Although comparable specifications are becoming available in the Windows world for slightly less money, the Apple premium rewards with its design, portability and pleasure of use.
