2015 15-Inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display Review

The 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is the larger of two Pro laptops designed by Apple, and available in silver. Made with a diagonal 15.4 inch LED-backlit display, 2880-by-1800 native resolution at 220 pixels per inch with support for graphics, supported scale-resolutions, 300 nits of brightness, a Standard Colour Gamut (sRGB) and 900:1 contrast ratio. There’s two choices of Processor to choose from: the 2.2GHz plan _ including a 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz) with 6MB shared L3 cache _ or the 2.5GHz plan _ 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz) with 6MB shared L3 cache Configurable to 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz) with 6MB shared L3 cache, with 16GB of 1600MHz of unbound memory, and 2.2GHz-256GB, or 2.5GHz-512GB in storage. So what else is there to say about it?

When you first get the 15-Inch MacBook Pro, you see it comes in a white box, with Apple’s special plastic over it. After taring it off, you can see information at the back, with the main picture of the product on top of the lid, and the product title on the side.

Inside, you get the 15-Inch MacBook Pro, with some information and apple stickers, a charger and a charging block below. This MacBook Pro is lighter than previous generations _ height: 0.71 inch (1.8 cm), width: 14.13 inches (35.49 cm), Depth: 9.73 inches (24.71 cm), and weight: 4.49 pounds (2.04 kg). Giving its an older model, I expect it will get lighter over time, but it would help a lot if it did to make it safe for people who can’t lift it as easy as others.

There are ports at the side which are used to charge, plug in USBs and other pen drives, as well as one for the wire of wired headphones to go into, but it also supports wireless headphones.

It also includes a force touch trackpad, which can be accessed by a harder click, and can bring content up no matter where you click on it.

Aimed at people working in Film, Photography, or any other creative market, it has Intel Iris Pro Graphics _ 2.2GHs-256GB or 2.5GHs-512GB _ Dual display and video mirroring _ supporting full native resolution up to 3840 by 2160 pixels _ Thunderbolt digital video output, HDMI video output, and a 720p FaceTime HD camera.

So what are my thoughts about it?

As someone working among photography, video production, graphics and writing, the 2015 15-Inch MacBook Pro is a good laptop which has been able to show all my content in good definition. It takes a long time for the memory and storage to fill up, which works for me as I often have to work with big documents.

My only bit of criticism is that it’s hard for me to do a force touch on the trackpad, and since I got my laptop in mid-2015, I’ve also struggled with doing a right click. I fixed this a few months ago by changing the two-finger-right-click to a right-trackpad-tap to allow me to do this, but in future versions I would like for the user to be able to set this up during the setup.
