Get one while you can! I bought this Macbook Pro from John Lewis (more expensive, but a free 3 year warranty included) in preference to the newer Retina Macbook Pro or the Macbook Air. While it may seem counter-intuitive to buy an older product while achieving only a 10% price saving, I think there are three very sound reasons NOT to buy the newer model….Firstly, the display – the Retina is beautiful when you are about 6 inches away from the display, and the quality is amazing. However, when in normal use (sitting at a desk) you are at such a distance from the screen that you won’t notice the difference.Secondly, future proofing. This model of Macbook Pro is the last that is modular i.e you can take it apart and swap RAM and hard drives very easily. The new Retina models have everything soldered to the motherboard – so you will never be able to boost performance in a few years. This Macbook supports up to 16GB RAM and it is a common modification to change the hard drive for a SSD…

Stunning build quality, beautifully designed. Great laptop If you’re like me, you’ll have spent ages comparing features and specs before splashing the cash on a new laptop. I certainly did, and I finally settled for a Mac.Quick word of warning: I’m a recent (this model Mac) convert from Windows to a MacBook Pro, and was lucky enough to recently upgrade to a stunning 13 inch Retina. While I love Apple products, I’m not a Mac expert, and this review is for similar non-experts who are thinking about “converting”. Because it’s a review of the MBP range, you’ll find the same review on other specs – skip to the end to see the specifics on this model.Be aware, this is NOT the very latest hardware (it’s been replaced by the “Mac Book Pro with Retina”). However, there’s a strongly compelling reason to buy this model (aside from the fantastic price), but you’ll need to read on to find out.Firstly, the hardware – which is just stunning. It’s nicely thin and relatively light, and the screen looks surprisingly big…
