MacBook Pro 13-inch is one of the highly affordable high-end models of Apple laptops. The 15.5-inch displayed Macbook Pros was priced at approximately higher than 120000 and contrastingly, the 13 inch was showcased at a range of approximately 80000 to 100000. Apparently, consumers prefer the latter and 13-inch always holds a soft spot for users when it comes to the question of portability and reliability. However, the major question is, will Pro deliver the punch of performance when compared to its ancestors?
Well, undoubtedly, the answer is a yes. The13-inch Pro that features the state-of-the art processor features a wide range of upgrades that are in queue. The major update that stands in line is that of the core i-series processor and the hoards of display graphics that are added for seamless performance. With that said, there are quite a few other design improvements that are anticipated in the near future, especially when it comes to the aspect of weight. Although Pro fares equally well when compared to its foster sibling the Air, it is not ultrathin and lands up heavy on your backs. However, if thickness is what that matters the most here, then you might as well choose Air over Pro.
There is nothing contrastingly different with a MacBook Pro and it still remains the same as that of the 2011 and 2010 models. There are ports that line up the left side and the MagSafe cable is positioned at the rear end, but stays absolutely out of the way. The main slot that loads the drives is positioned right inside. However, the aluminum build and Apple’s ergonomic design is what that matters the most and is not clumsy or overdesigned here. Construction as with other Apple laptops is solid rock and the metal body seems just a piece of art.
The Pro features a standard keyboard with backlit is ideal for use in low-light conditions. The light sensors detect the perfect ambience and help to maintain the screen brightness and the keyboard lighting at a perfect pace.
The ergonomics are excellent and the edge-edge glass frames outline the screen, and there aren’t good anti-glare features as that of the 15-inch Pro. The display is reasonably good with a native pixel resolution of 1280 x 800, which is as same as that of the 2010 model. Nevertheless, even the MacBook Air features an increase in the resolution and pixel display and it is surprising that Apple hasn’t turned Pro to better resolution and clarity.
Speakers feature adequate volume and music and sound fairs well. The Pro does not feature an audio that actually reaches out and bangs on the ears, unless you are on your headphones. However, with the 13-inch Pro it does a fair job as well.
The HD Webcam delivers a 720p screen that offers superior web chats using the Face Time app that is preinstalled. Although FaceTime is on the beta version, it ideally works out for Mac and iPhone users equal. You can also choose to swap between portrait or landscape with the single-button click.
