  • Long battery life
  • Crystal clear and sharp IPS retina display
  • Premium build quality
  • Fast all-round performance
  • Decent integrated graphics


  • No improvements to weight and thickness from predecessor
  • Touchpad can be tricky to master coming from a Windows device

Bottom Line

While not much thinner or lighter than its predecessor the Apple MacBook Pro MF840LL/A packs a wallop and looks amazing while doing it. The IPS retina display and crystal clear audio make for an immersive multimedia experience.

The Apple MacBook Pro MF840LL/A is a bestselling 13.3-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its sharp IPS retina display, excellent build quality, fast all-round performance, decent integrated graphics, and long battery life. However, it is neither thinner nor lighter than its predecessors, it still doesn’t have discrete graphics and the new trackpad may take some time getting used to. Except for gaming, the MF840LL/A tackles everything from everyday tasks to heavy video editing with ease.
