Just this last May 19, the Apple company has released its top-tier portable machine 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. This high pricing attractive laptop performs good anProd battery life along with a striking, high-quality Retina display.

The Apple Company has also been quietly overhauling its laptop series in recent months amidst all the excitement surrounding the launch of the Apple Watch. For several generations, the Apple's MacBook Air and Pro lines have remained steadfast, unswerving in their look and feel. The Apple typically brings handful of twist and updates about its internal components, from better hard drives to faster Wi-Fi to new processors every year.

According to zdnet, the 15-inch MacBook Pro remains to be powered by quad-core 22nm Haswell Core i7 processors; actually, it doesn't even present a modest bump to clock speed. Faster PCIe solid-state drive with data-transfer speeds of up to 2GB/s, and the addition of the Force Touch trackpad as well are the only major changes to this 15-inch model.

The fastest notebook drive of 15-inch Retina Macbook serves as its solid state that the Apple has unveiled yet, reaching throughput speeds up to 2GB/s. This runs 2.5 times faster compared in the SSD of the previous=generation 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro.

 The MacBook Pro's 15.4-inch, 2,880-by-1,800-pixel (220ppi) Retina display continues to have exceptional bright, colourful, and well coordinated to video- or photo-editing work. However, it only manages a relatively modest 31fps for OpenGL performance when running Cinebench R15.

This is because of the model's reliance on Intel's integrated Iris Pro 5200 graphics rather than a dedicated GPU. This will be perfectly suitable for many users utilizing Photoshop and other creative applications, but it's still relatively modest for a laptop costing £1,599.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro has a brilliant Retina Display, new graphics card options, powerful processor plus faster flash storage and a new Force Touch trackpad. However, the new AMD graphics don't do much for gamers and this model offers only the most minimal upgrades over last year's version, in spite of of a very high starting price. Nevertheless, the handful of tweaks included here keeps this expensive system at the apex of the list for powerful midsize laptops
