The 13-inch MacBook Pro is one of the most common MacBook model variations around. There are several reasons for that: It is the more affordable model, it is compact and more portable compared to the larger 15-inch display model, and it is incredibly powerful to boot. As with all Apple products, it is a laptop that is revolutionary in all aspects, delivering great performance in a superior unibody all-metal design.
The MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display also comes with a powerful set of specifications that take the form of fifth-generation Intel Core processors and integrated Intel Iris Graphics 6100. It is a capable machine, and with the addition of Apple's very own Mac OS X that is perfectly optimized for the hardware, it is one heck of a MacBook.
Apple is the one who first coined the term Retina Display. It is actually a marketing term that is developed by Apple to describe the resolution and pixel density that it uses. Apple calls it Retina Display because the display has a large enough amount of pixels per inch (PPI) that a person is unable to tell them apart from a normal viewing distance. The PPI required for a display to be called Retina Display is roughly about 300 or more pixels.
The gorgeous Retina Display first made its way to Apple's iPhones, but now at long last, it makes its way to the MacBook Pro line of laptops. On the MacBook Pro 13-inch, you will notice the beautiful display that outputs a spectacular 2560 x 1600 resolution that delivers crystal clear clarity and crispness unlike any other. Everything appears so sharply that it looks like you are reading everything on a printed page.
An awesome display comes with a brand new trackpad with the MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display. Apple's trackpads are always intuitive, and now with the addition of Force Touch and support of multi-touch in OS X, it goes to a whole other level of innovation. Multi-touch in the Mac OS X lets you perform very realistic gestures as you would on a touchscreen, such as swiping or pinching to navigate between different applications and on-screen windows.
Force Touch, on the other hand, adds pressure sensitive sensors and haptic feedback motors to the trackpad that can detect any pressure that you apply. It gives you another method of interacting with your MacBook Pro that is intuitive and natural.
