Frustrating to many frequent travelers, táo saved the chip core i5 and Core i7 processors for the 15- và 17-inch apple macbook phiên bản pro refresh, leaving the 13-inch notebook with chip core 2 Duo chips. Our test unit has a 2.4GHz chip core 2 Duo processor paired with 4GB of RAM, a 250GB hard-drive & integrated NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics borrowing 256MB of the notebook"s memory.

Options include a faster, 2.66GHz vi xử lý core 2 Duo processor, up lớn 8GB of RAM & a 320GB hard-drive, or alternatively up khổng lồ 512GB of SSD storage. The slot-loading DVD burner is still in place, & the previous array of ports remain: gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, Mini DisplayPort, two USB 2.0, an SD thẻ slot, combined audio in/out and a Kensington lock slot. Unlike the 15-inch macbook phiên bản pro there"s no Full HD display option, only the standard 13.3-inch LED-backlit 1280 x 800 panel; we don"t so much miss the extra pixels, but we wish táo khuyết would offer an antiglare screen finish.

Standard wireless options include WiFi a/b/g/n và Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, while there"s also an integrated webcam, a backlit keyboard & the usual multitouch trackpad. Táo bị cắn dở reckons the non-swap 63.5Wh battery is good for up to lớn 10hrs runtime with wireless turned on.

Physically, then, little has changed from the last generation 13-inch laptop apple macbook Pro, & that"s generally a good thing. Measuring 12.78 x 8.94 x 0.95 inches it"s still a relatively compact machine, and though the 4.5lb weight makes it heavier than other 13-inch notebooks the upside is the sturdy unibody aluminum build quality. Display chất lượng is on a par with the previous model, being bright and crisp with deep, rich colors. Of course, if you"re the sort of frequent-traveler to whom the 13-incher will appeal, you may find reflections in the display prove frustrating if working outside.

The macbook pro 13"s CPU marks it out as the only Pro-line apple notebook khổng lồ lack an hãng intel Arrandale processor. While that may be a price consideration on the company"s part, it does mean users miss out on newer features lượt thích Hyper Threading, which create "virtual" cores for use by compatible software. We ran our usual Geekbench benchmarking tests on the notebook, a synthetic thử nghiệm of processor và memory performance, & the apple macbook phiên bản pro scored 3702 overall. That"s actually a little less than the previous generation 13-incher we tested midway through last year, which scored 3892, though it"s worth noting that particular machine was the 2.53GHz core 2 Duo laptop apple macbook Pros not the entry-level model of the time.

In day-to-day use, the macbook pro kept up with everything we asked for it, though it understandably lacked the responsiveness of its more powerful, larger siblings. The absence of Hyper Threading is only noticeable in apps that have been coded to support it: this includes titles such as Adobe"s Photoshop and other graphics and video clip design packages. Arguably táo has made a sensible choice with their CPU picks: the type of buyers who"d be doing video clip editing is perhaps unlikely to lớn choose to bởi vì so on a 13-inch notebook. When it comes to truyền thông playback, internet access, mild video clip processing & other day-to-day chores, the 2.4GHz vi xử lý core 2 Duo is more than sufficient.


As for the graphics, without the discrete GPU from the 15- or 17-inch machines (or their intelligent switching technology) it"s another good reason for đoạn clip pros lớn look elsewhere, but the rest of us should find it a noticeable boost from the previous -gen macbook phiên bản pro 13"s GeForce 9400M. It"s certainly decent enough to giảm giá khuyến mãi with iMovie – though you probably won"t want to do much multitasking while it"s rendering – và HD playback isn"t a problem (though of course you"ll want to output đầu ra to a standalone display for Full HD, since the notebook"s own display won"t tư vấn it). Táo khuyết still refuses to fit an HDMI port for ready connection khổng lồ an HDTV, but at least the Mini DisplayPort now includes audio-out.

Battery life fell short of Apple"s 10hr prediction, which presumes nothing but light web browsing and text editing with the screen brightness set to lớn half (still a reasonably viewable setting, lớn be fair). With more typical use, throwing some music and video clip into the mixture, we managed between roughly 7-8hrs of wireless use, which is impressive. Loading up a DVD or gaming obviously had an impact on that figure, as did video clip editing, pulling it down lớn more lượt thích 4-5hrs.


The 13-inch macbook phiên bản pro remains in the shadow of its bigger, more expensive range-mates, though given the price increase for the entry-level 15-inch model (up lớn $1,799, now that a discrete GPU is standard across that line) in comparison to lớn our $1,199 reviews unit (or even the $1,499 2.66GHz version) it"s a costly step up for their improved graphics và processing performance. $200 does get you a considerably better machine than the plastic-bodied laptop macbook ( review), however, which has a slower processor, half the RAM, poorer graphics & promises less battery life. Unless you simply have lớn come in at under $1k, that"s certainly where we"d expect lớn see the new 13-inch apple macbook pro bite into sales. Existing owners of the last-gen 13-incher probably shouldn"t tăng cấp this time around, but this new version has plenty to recommend it lớn new buyers. Http://
