The Apple Macbook Pro 13-inch is packed full of features that make it stand out from the crowd. Powered by a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 and featuring an Intel HD Graphics 4000 processor, it's energy efficient and up to 60 per cent faster than in previous models. This combined power ensures every application feels smoother and more reponsive, plus films and games will look amazing. It's also highly efficient, so you'll have long-lasting power (up to seven hours) for when you're on the move.
The FaceTime HD camera enables you to speak to friends and family in crystal clear widescreen HD quality. You can make 720p HD calls from your MacBook Pro to any Mac that has a FaceTime HD camera, and hold video calls with anyone who has an iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPod touch and other Intel-based Mac computers. The bright LED-backlit display will make all your images and videos look beautiful.
With the Multi-Touch trackpad you can interact in a natural way with everything that's on your screen. Made of smooth glass, the surface gives you enough space for gestures e.g. swipe to flip through photos, pinch to zoom in or out, rotate to adjust an image and many more. Its buttonless design means that you can click anywhere. If you're used to right clicking, you can right-click either by using two fingers or simply specifying a right click location on the trackpad.
Machined from a single piece of aluminium, the MacBook Pro's durable unibody replaced lots of parts with just one. The first time you hold the MacBook Pro, you'll notice how the notebook is thinner and lighter, plus more polished and refined than other notebooks.
Thunderbolt technology offers a single connection which carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express signals. 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and delivering 10 Gbps of throughput in both directions, Thunderbolt gives you ultra-fast transfer speeds and enables you to connect multiple high performance peripherals by daisy chaining up to six devices together. There's also two USB 3.0 ports for transferring data between devices at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, and all your USB 2.0 devices are still compatible.
Stay connected with the latest three-stream 802.11n wireless technology to get the best performance at any range. MacBook Pro will find any available networks and you can connect to them with just a click. Bluetooth wireless technology enables you to connect to all your wireless accessories. The 8x SuperDrive means you can burn DVDs at ultra-fast speeds and with the ability to write double-layer discs, it's easy to back up all your data. - A.D.
