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.
