Apple MacBook Pro With Retina Display vs Non Retina Display Compared by Reviewsitnow.com

November 4, 2013

$100 More, it might turn out to be money well spent.

(PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Apple was set to introduce new MacBook models and other Apple products by November, hopefully in time for Black Friday 2013. The release of a new MacBook is projected to be released two week before Black Friday which means that MacBook deal hunters will mostly find the previous generation of MacBooks in the list of the season's list of deals. The radically redesigned MacBook Pro features a 13-inch Retina screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and an Intel Haswell CPU, which is Intel's latest processor. When this processor is paired with Iris Pro it boosts the HD graphics processor. The MacBook Pro with Retina has a faster 128GB drive and HDMI that is not found in the non-Retina MacBook. The resolution seems to be the one improvement that makes the Mac book with retina better. It does not account for the $100 difference between the two Mac Pro books this means there is more than just resolution. Whilst which begs the question, is what is the extra $100 that separate the MacBook Pro that has Retina has and one that didn't really for? The Retina MacBook Pro retails at $1.200 the MacBook Pro with retina retails for $100 more

Comparing the two, there is very little else that makes the one more special than the other.

The non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro has 500GB of storage space and runs a 5400 rpm mechanical drive. The MacBook Pro with Retina screen has less space. Storage space can be augmented by an external drive. This costs about $30 to $40. That alone should at least take off $40 from the price if storage space is an important consideration for the buyer. The Retina MacBook Pro is lighter and slimmer.It is a big deal since the weight difference between the two is only about a pound.

So to answer the question of what the extra $100 dollar is for; consider that the new version has a higher resolution, a better processor, a lighter body and HDMI. Bargain hunters will be glad to know that the 13-inch MacBook Pro will drop in price to make way for the new versions that are coming out in a couple of days and more that are in the pipeline in the Apple think tank. The non-retina MacBook Pro is expected to go down but not by much since the new generation is yet to make its impact in the market.

Those who want a Black Friday MacBook Pro deal will be hoping for a price reduction on the non-retina 13 inch MacBook Pro. If there are no deals on the non-Retina MacBook Pro and one really wants a MacBook notebook the smart thing is to take the better, upgraded version of the notebook, after all, if the difference is going to be a $100, it might turn out to be money well spent.
