Best 15″ Retina MacBook Pro Prices

The 0.71″ thin 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a double-resolution 2880 x 1800 pixel Retina Display, does not have a built-in SuperDrive, and uses the same CPUs as the regular MacBook Pro. It normally ships with 8 GB of onboard memory and is upgradable to 16 GB, but you have to order it that way, as memory is soldered to the system board.

The 2.3 GHz (2012) and 2.4 GHz (2013) models ship with a 256 GB SSD, the 2.6 GHz (2012) and 2.7 GHz (2013) models with 512 GB, and there is also a 768 GB build-to-order option. See our first thoughts on the new models in The Retina MacBook Pro Value Equation.
