Comment: Best laptop on the market. Competitive models yet.
the Price is certainly exaggerated, but you quickly forget about it, when he will be Yours.
No optical drive is not a minus, this technology had lived his. USB flash drive 16 GB already cheaper than 300 RUB.
Somebody wrote that the buttons Delete, PgUp and other lacks - nonsense, shortcut Cmd+arrows even more convenient. By the way OS X is fraught with very many secrets and you all more will be pleasantly surprised to discover the world of Mac.
Accomplishments: 1. Screen - tale. Everyone who I have seen more than 10 minutes, dream to buy the same.
2. The processor is the latest generation, with the heat, the heat load on the full I couldn't.
3. Cards two, but for any difficult work (connect an additional monitor to open in the browser loaded animation pages) is automatically included discrete, although the integrated able to watch movies at 720p, but you need to put gfxCardStatus.
4. RAM my 16 GB swap disabled it, for even half load a RAM was enough difficult.
5. The display brightness to the maximum, you can comfortably sit with a laptop in the Park on a Sunny day, in principle screen in this case almost looks like Matt.
6. Well SSD, and a time to live (under normal use - 5 hours), and weight (finally!), and everything else is the same Apple.
Limitations: 1. Some cranks write negative reviews, apparently Samsung sheep, or those who could not buy. Honestly, I don't understand the charm of this screen can only children of the underground.
2. OS X, update soon.
3. Under load a bit noisy and basking in the upper left corner, above the speaker.
Comment: Those who are not satisfied with the price of a look on the VAIO, characteristics almost as well (well, except for the screen, OSes and 1 microphone), and are more expensive. This laptop is not targeted at a wide audience, it is for the sophisticated buyer and costs accordingly.
P.S. don't have iPhones as not had the Apple technology (Hackintosh't count...), I'm not working for them. Ordered in America, not regretted, that has done so.
Accomplishments: Very easy - just 2 kg Powerful Core i7 IvyBridge.. Optimal amount of RAM, enough for all. Bought three months ago. Happy as an elephant. All the flies, nothing is buggy. Played Eve Online and World of Warcraft. The LRF is very good. The default settings of the flies, change't tried, and so happy. The touchpad is simply magical. It sometimes even easier than with a mouse. Especially in the manipulation of photos in iPhoto, Adobe Lightroom and other photo programs. While before Apple laptop I touchpads hated uncomfortable. After purchasing this laptop, I almost stopped include home destop that it serious configuration - any part if not the top, the previous top model, not weaker.
Limitations: The absence of a RJ45 connector. Backing up the home NAS really going long. Forward 400Gb of data on WiFi tedious task. When that home router Linksys pulls 300Mbps.. Thinking to buy an external HDD for cases when you need to quickly zabekapit system.
Comment: The laptop just fell in love. If the price doesn't bite - I recommend. PS: that would have to screen was "27 as on a home computer :) Seriously'm thinking of selling my home computer, laptop, home to put into place the system unit and connect it to a large monitor and good old-fashioned mechanical clave Razer BlackWidow.
Accomplishments: Weight, design, performance, keyboard (I have an American without engraving - I'm typing blind and no problems experienced), good sound (at least 15" model, 13" dynamics like differently), excellent build quality. Well, and in addition: OS X, and other charms of the Apple kind of tight integration with other devices like the iPhone.
Limitations: * The probability of getting a display with a «phantom» effect (you can notice a trace of the past window on a dark background);
* crackle (although I have passed);
* noise under high loads;
* the availability of misbehaving applications under the Retina (by the way, Mac App Store such't remember, but outside of it are: Word/Excel/PowerPoint, Firefox, for example);
* 2 USB. Disadvantages, personally I'm not particularly exciting:
* no Ethernet port;
* lack of drive.
Comment: I have the American version, bought in July 2012. The impression that Apple was in a hurry, because the listed problems of the laptop for the price just a nuisance. I came across the display with «phantom» effect (the production of LG), sometimes there was some crackling (do a search on YouTube «MBP Retina Crackle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGncj2kwxkM). The most interesting that the crackle is long gone after some of the updates OS X, i.e. apparently there was a problem with the drivers. When, for example, to convert a video, or some resource-intensive game, laptop hard enough noise. by the Way, I want to pay attention: when you use an ungrounded outlet, you can feel the current housing macbook'and. Accordingly, the charge of a grounded ;) no matter what, I still satisfied. My last laptop was the Sony Vaio S series, a significant difference. P.S.
by the Way, the appeal to those who say that «ssd has a real volume in 251GB» - it is not. In the application «About this Mac» gigabytes simply considered to be the same «marketing» method: 1 GB = 1000 MB etc. strictly speaking, there cannot be any claims, because under generally accepted among the people «gigabytes» actually means «gibibayt», but because of habit and neblagozvuchnosti do not. That is, oddly enough, right here marketers.
Comment: it's a horror... decided on the part of the premium to take this device. was an acer aspire. as already wrote here I will not repeat.. full brake!!!!!!! at its acere I calmly yuzal game 2006-2009 on this set code 1.4 and the feeling that I was postponed till the year of release of this game when I stump 3 and though overheating but he pulled, but this thought is melted because Klava has warmed so that I wanted as much water for watering already... vopschem I have some negative emotions... that miracle... bought for 95000-00 can say that threw since the service center I hears that all the norms of works and what you do not like it's your problem, however I enjoyed month before suffered..... luchsheb in Sochi on the weekend flew drank beer would be on the beach for the money! (((
Accomplishments: Thin, light, beautiful!
7 hours of use, the screen on the IPS is the main advantage.
Not so really hot as the previous ones.
Limitations: Hlipkovat housing of aluminium is very thin, because of this feeling pressed the button and the sound when you print other than on 13 and 15 are not retina.
bursting Housing push down on the diagonally opposite corners, or lift outdoor beyond the edge of the proshkah wheel, no monolith.
Comment: Pleasant thing, after the screen retina ordinary looking and not very comfortable.
Due to the thickness of all the components installed very tightly.
From independent upgrade is only possible replacement of SDS disk, and then if you find such a sale - with mini pci interface.
Accomplishments: Here is just about the merits of that mentioned more than once:
1) Gorgeous display. It's just something. Read and write on the retina - the song is like. It should be seen, not 5 minutes and after sitting a while for him.
2) Performance. Do not believe those, who writes that it is impossible in CivIII normal play. First, they run it not through the best crutches, and secondly, most likely, still incorrectly run vindoigryi. Generally, even the initial equipment MBP 15 Retina easily operated with a stable office romp (web browser with 10-20 tabs, a pair of word processors, player, update, Skype, all sorts of clients etc) do not noticing them. I.e. instant switching between tasks. If the load is serious then he just starts to operate as a cruiser: calmly and confidently performs tasks (batch processing, rendering).
3) Tactile sensation and appearance. Here purely subjective - the best laptop that's been in the hands and got in the field of view. One-piece, cool, with a pleasant texture, the whole nya-nya-nya.
4) Chips. The backlighting is just a mega if you want to work in the dark (night to write a text, or just chat), and adaptive regulation of brightness of the backlight.
5) Battery. Here wrote that 3 with a small hours in an average load. Don't believe. With the backlight turned off the keys and 60-70% of the backlight quite working full time 7-11 hours as a browser, the typewriter and the player (external speakers, not the built-in speakers) at the same time.
6) the Silence. Never (again - not ONCE) I haven't heard from him noise. Twice I heard a small vetorok from vents, especially listening. It is, of course, aluminum enclosure in a cool room is self-contained cooled, but still.
7) Software. Yes. It is soft. I write texts. And only on the Mac, I realized that this work with pleasure. Discovered frishnyiy FocusWriter...
And still all sorts of purely personal advantages
Limitations: I don't know what to write in disadvantages. Bayans, like «doesn't have a beer» do not want to, and essential for him not noticed.
we Can mention the glossy screen: he glares back if a bright light source. However increase of the level of illumination is eliminated.
Comment: The price tag, I put «4», I would like to see him on the value of the American epplstora, but...
Although the price tag, perhaps, is adequate for this device. This is not a budget laptop. It's a nice, high quality, fast unit. Silly talk, sports cars that are expensive. Simply, if they are not needed or are too expensive, that is, station wagons, sedans, vases and other car hire. There is no need to mix. and MacBook Pro 15 Retina is sportscar among noutom. Do not like it or not right? The mass of options. In General I'm very glad I bought it. Purely personal impression is that this is just the buzz in the work and just in time. All fast, easy, nice and with a picture of typographic quality. Recommend.
Accomplishments: 1. Very bright and saturated colors, retina all the same good
2. Slim, stylish and beautiful (those who love pofotkatsya ava company products EPL advise odnaznochno)
3. Powerful (i7 qualitatively its job,and SSD him sensitively this helps)
4. Quiet but serious games wakes up and starts to burn my knees
Limitations: 1. Still non-standard resolution, and in games is somewhat unusual. The same attack and programmes.
2. Graphics a bit weak could and mobile GTX stuff, for such money, and not that cropped miracle.
3. Who would not say and without vindovskih some applications can not do, eplovskie alternative frankly rather weak and not sufficiently functional.
4. Price is still bites (if I never got one, I would imagine definitely not buy)
5. Case though, of aluminum, but it's soft.
Comment: The whole machine is good, attracts glances and as all products EPL quality. The laptop is more suitable for those looking for a job in the office and it is important to impress your partner. Me as an engineer such a thing at all without the need to.
Accomplishments: Display. This is the main and a huge plus Retina MBP. Moreover, not primarily because of pictures and photos, and for the quality of the text. Text indistinguishable from polygraphic quality programmes adapted to the Retina. This includes all web sites when viewed in Safari. This quality on any screen of another laptop or desktop not see. Only on the iPad and not the effect. If you
a) a fan of clear, beautiful fonts
b) works a lot for a laptop and want your eyes less utomlyalis it is worthwhile to assess this laptop live. About the other advantages of speed, design etc is already plenty written in other reviews.
Limitations: For me there is only one disadvantage - weight. compared with my MBA 13 the difference is very significant, although it would seem weight not much more. Here it is necessary to decide what is more important - eyes or back ;) Well and beveled form factor MBA I like. it would be impossible To upgrade - how many people do upgrade exactly laptop? Unless memory, and it is quite enough. 8Gb SSD drive it as 32 with a screw.
Comment: If we put aside the question of the price, then my recommendations for a) Owners of old MBP 15 - Retina best performance by an order. b) For owners of MBA 11/12 year - they are very fast for everyday tasks. The choice screen or weight. I know people who took the Retina, and then returned to the MBA due weight. c) For the holders of any Win noutom. If you are going to work with Windows 7 on the Retina is a bad idea, it will look terrible. Windows 8 - I think it is terrible in itself ;) If you want Retina, then be prepared to work in OS X. In my opinion this is the best Apple product - better iOS, iPhone, iPad, and even laptops as iron. But not all fit after Windows.
Accomplishments: Screen! For the first time was in so much pleasure to work in your favorite lodjike and other prog. The clarity of the screen, just rocked. And of course design, speed, weight, all of EPL on top. For 7 hours not heard distracting noise, not heating. This is of course happy.
Limitations: No dvd drive, although probably soon they disappear and other brands) Price certainly makes a lot to think about, it is too expensive. Other shortcomings are not revealed, new technologies, these deficiencies and bury:)
Comment: Recently purchased this product. Taken with a maximum memory hard drive-512GB and operativoy to 8192 MB. This product bought for work because work in audio programs, the creation of music etc... Hooked immediately under his own Studio acoustics and was surprised to sound so clean that does not require external sound card (I've always worked only with her). Engineers and those who work with music and sound-this beech right choice! If you take this product, only for work with graphics, video, and sound.
Accomplishments: To all terms, which characterize the new product from Apple, I want to add a word «super». He supertonok, superlegok, superbyistr. Time of Autonomous work is also just super. The volume of the drive, the imagination, RAM enough to run simultaneously a great many applications. Even the sound is great.
Limitations: The only disadvantage is its high price. However, the previous model had also cost more expensive... You decide.
Comment: For those who are looking for a new laptop premium, combining powerful performance with relative ease and small dimensions, it is impossible to recommend something that would exceeded the new MacBook Pro c Retina display.
If the main factor in buying a miniature computer you are size and weight, can draw attention to cheaper MacBook Air, conceding, however, the «professional» model in some parameters. In addition, you can wait a bit before buying, while manufacturers applications would not update their products to better compatibility with the technology of the Retina. Because if you buy this laptop right now, some time will have to do without favorite programs designed for traditional screens.
Limitations: The problem with touchpad arose after 2 months of use. Decided found in the Internet way by pressing the upper corners. Then this problem happened again... Remain glares on the screen, aka image-retention. A frequent problem with monitors from LG, it appears. Noticed after 2 months of use. Fragile aluminum, very, very much! easily formed dents Dictation and speech only in English. In the service expectation of new parts for a month or more. Plus 2012 require presentation of the check. I do not know whether I will contact the service regarding the touchpad and the screen. the Sound of the speakers is not very. He's not bad, but not good. is Heated strongly. there is No button to page down scroll with two fingers on the touchpad - tired fingers. Or use dvuhklavishnuyu combination. Some programs look pikselizovannyimi, worse, than on conventional screens. For example, word for Mac, and virtually all of the programs found in Microsoft Windows through Parallels. for me Personally inconvenient keyboard layout - comma hanging on the 6. During the transition to found in Microsoft Windows-layout settings you can fix this, but matters. mark still hangs on 7. Resets WIFI, so that falls off, then on. the connection. You cannot download large files without ethernet adapter (download longer than 1-2 hours). After limiting the maximum size of package of connection of the water would improve as well, see what happens next. Battery 3 months worse holds, 4 hours of video.
Comment: No luck with the model. Compactness out of competition, but image retention spoils the impression. Closing the browser, I see his shape, up to the address in the address bar of dark Wallpaper. Fonts pleasant and color is not difficult to calibrate. Reduce eye fatigue I have not noticed it. Also not very convenient to turn the pages without a mouse, a few hours fingers grow weary. This is the first laptop, on which I have this problem, and also the first Mac. Many people do not bother, but for me this is a big minus.
Accomplishments: For 2012, believe me, I found them at a price not so much. Red price it of 45 - 55 thousand rubles. Of the advantages highlight the touchpad, which in my opinion here polished up to a certain ideal, keypad backlighting and the logo «Apple», I should also note performance. Modern, fast, economical Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge» and the latest graphics «NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M»pose a serious tandem in the coupe with 8 gigabytes of RAM at higher frequencies up to 1600 MHz (one of the two «know-how» on a par with TV), I should add that this is a new low-cost standard - type memory of the last generation DDR3L. Also there is the integrated graphics - Intel HD Graphics 4000, in addition to the main task of which ( the formation of the image of the desktop and 3D acceleration ) even added when you switch on her battery saving, as I emphasize originally thought, but the battery is below. Fast speed thanks to a modern SATA disk of the last generation (different SSD) on 512 gigabytes. Design is very, aluminum certainly welcome, but any time I already convinced by their own experience how we are blind, that judged on the picture and some ghostly status of the Brand «Apple», in which they had erected.
Limitations: Firstly this vaunted and raspiarennyiy «Retina display», absolutely identical gloss as the laptop is 30 thousand. Yes in the dark I agree, can colors and more juicy than other models and thanks to matrix «IPS» viewing angle is good, but friends we care about vision, constantly in the darkness no-one will not sit. The sun do not see anything, and when they promised they allegedly compared with normal glossy screen the situation with glare will improve by as much as 75%, "yeah improved", "thanks" to the «Apple». Yes appeared revolutionary resolution 2880x1800, but it is so relative, that without a magnifying glass and it won't appreciate it as such from the Full HD on the same 15 inches, I think you understood me. Moving forward, sound, it well to put it mildly leaves much to be desired, though straight now get up and go and buy things to him Subwoofer over 105 thousand from «Apple», and they think this just waiting with such a "miracle" sound. Go to the temperature here is a new line of processors «Ivy Bridge» scary heated just be honest with such furnaces have never met, but in principle was ready for such a turn since the model is quite thin for this segment of laptops. Quiet in office mode, but under load quite starts acting from two fans, but this is again all from the same Opera: «While we had hoped and believed that it would be better for that price». The battery is weak, promised 7 how many hours ? May 8 hours ? Of course, get in a little over 3 hours (!) and this is what is most surprising is not the maximum modes, average, smaller than average. In principle, I realized who is the main consumer - «Retina display». Right very similar to the situation with the smartphone HTC One X», for the beautiful screen has to pay, only in the case of «Apple» in direct and portable sense. MDA honestly already write almost with tears in his eyes, okay, now let's make conclusions.
Comment: Company «Apple» borders with genius and insanity simultaneously, and the second paragraph was added in the last couple of years, unfortunately. Of course respectful to the success of the company on the world market, of course appreciate that kind of brought the company Steve and his genius. But after this laptop, I took from sleep, take the shades of five letters, and what you want.
Accomplishments: Easy and efficient, good sound, great screen quality. The battery holds a very long time.
Limitations: In many machines problems with the matrix, and the manufacturer is not in a hurry to fix if you bring in to the service center.
Comment: Bought this model about 2 months ago. 1) has a glitch with the matrix - retina ghosting (podbobnee http://www.thenbells.com/2012/11/apple-think-twice.html). I read, it turns out many a problem. Not that this bug was unrealistic to work, but for such money very bad moment, do you expect that everything will be better. 2) There are inconveniences with this extension. Photoshop looks disgusting. Safari is buggy all the time with drawing, chrome does not support some cool features, such as translation tachu 3 fingers and increase text dablkliku two fingers. 3) Mac OS does not so good. Ubunta worked for 30 days without rebooting the system and no problems. Mac hangs regularly (every 3-5 days. For those who use the console again and here tricks: 1) kernel panics with special characters 2) no (or I have not found how to configure autocomplete settings of applications.
Accomplishments: - Retina matrix resolution of 2880 on 1800, if on windows, this permit to work is possible and apple left dimensions as normal resolution just all became much clearer fonts just a mega clear. Actually introduced the concept of DPI monitor. - Absolutely silent, as usual even ear attaching don't hear anything, the fan noise becomes audible in the games. - Mac OS - have not previously used, but quickly mastered and love on windows not want to return. - Very agile, downloaded in less than a minute and from sleep to go faster than the cover open. - Trackpad - simply super. - Nice backlit keyboard. - ability to connect the 2 external monitors using the integrated, on other laptops is impossible due to the lack of graphics port, and then have a thunderbolt and for 750 rubles, it is converted to DVI. - Nothing will hold, as they say in some reviews.
Limitations: With games is a trouble, they apparently poorly optimized for Mac, because podtarmajivayut game, which should not. Googling read about similar problems, they say, many that same game under Windows on the same machine 1.5 times faster. I believe that more than 90% of the market game under Windows, so they under it sharpened, and on Macs may simply ported without significant optimization. Not for games took, therefore, is not critical, but not nice. Put Windows 7, it and play sometimes, sorry for memory.
Comment: Happy! Their money's worth, if to compare with analogues, and in parts. Every detail of the laptop is better and more expensive than comparable laptops from other manufacturers, hence the price. I took at the price different from the price on the European website of apple. Yes in the United States cheaper, but add the tax that would have to be paid (on the website is not specified for each state), shipping, delivery to Russia, the possible communication with customs and expenses, engraving and the difference is not so big.
Accomplishments: - Sverhchetkiy IPS screen
a Relatively easy
- Long battery life
- Qualitative and loud speakers
- Great trackpad
Limitations: - Afterglow images on the screen (see comment)
- gets Very hot
- System of cooling of a hot-air heats up the screen
- Screen easily collect dust and fingerprints
is not Possible to upgrade the RAM
For this laptop only Mac OS, Windows, everything looks awful lot of software works only with regard to one of the native DPI.
- a Lot of software under Mac OS is still supported by the Retina screen, for example Firefox still dopilivayut.
Comment: The clarity of the screen is amazing, fonts very nice look to work with your notebook pleasure - to the desktop touch desires no (normal screen fonts look just awful).
However, I came across an instance with TV from LG, which has a nasty "feature" - a dark gray or beige background visible residual traces of the highlights of the last still image. Difficult to explain - it is better to find the video on request "image retention" and show. Apple officially does not consider this marriage, although with screens from Samsung, this won't happen (they are made in different technologies + less "jeltyat"). Learn from any manufacturer, the screen can be only on a running system, packaging is not identified as a Samsung or LG. But not all so awful - if not work with gray and beige backgrounds, a "feature" not visible (who need Photoshop - think about it or look it up with TV from Samsung).
Under load cooling system cannot cope with the powerful filling even at full steam coolers - laptop heats up very well and hellishly hot air crashes right in front of the TV, which naturally enables the bottom of the screen decently hot.
Claimed battery life is not an exaggeration - if you try, you can squeeze much more (only work on an integrated video, disable Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, lower the brightness of the screen).
Yes, the price for the American version of truly low - analogues screen no analogues SSD disk there is no such compactness when such performance other notebooks there.
Accomplishments: 1. Matrix. The impression of a true magic. Prior to buying it seemed that freaky resolution is a whim, but in reality - it provides a qualitatively different perception of the picture. And if the pictures look just a little better, fonts, as already mentioned, are tipografski perfect, and so on laptop has become much more pleasant to read and write lyrics.
2. Screen/weight. I moved to the MB Pro with 15 MB Air 13. The main motive was larger display size. Some people think that 2 inches is nonsense, but you should think of what they really provide increase of 34% is the visible screen area. Of course, it was paid by the added weight of 650 grams, but the weight of 2.02 kg still quite nosibelnyiy for men. And 15 inches, and do it with such permission, make the work much more comfortable.
3. Solid-state drive. Flies. Affects even the speed of your Internet surfing.
4. The case and the keyboard. Monolith. Klava easier than Air-e, somehow harder.
5. The absence of a DVD. If necessary, I'm sticking in the comp DVD-rom from the air and bought 3 years ago, all of them easily identified. But every day to carry the extra weight of such outdated pribludinyi as a DVD it would not be good.
6. Balanced-powerful basic equipment. Even the youngest model has 8Gb of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a Quad-core i7 processor. Just this is enough for several years ahead.
7. Mac OS x
8. Price. The profitability of poppies revolves around 30%, but, for example, IPhones - 56%. So in MBP much clearer feel what you're paid my money.
Limitations: 1. 2 Thunderbolt-port 2 USB port. Given that gromobolt still not developed, then there is a deficit of ports, hope - temporary.
2. Small enter key.
3. Programs need modern, optimized under the Retina. That is, for example, Office:Mac only need 2011y, because earlier versions will be very unpleasant spreading of a font.
Comment: The best tool for the job.
The quality of performance it reminded me of 20 years ago Sharp, even black and white screen, solid as a milling machine, umudryavshiysya and 10 years later after the release of look good and reliable work.
And Pro-retina qualitatively better than the competition in all possible applications and as the «signet machine», and for work with photo and video.
Slim girls more likely to be suitable Pro-retina-13. But the Air-13 in the current situation is not very reasonable purchase.
In most cases, the owner will have to additionally take care of the physical security of the company. It is immediately obvious that something expensive, may be willing to steal.
the Price is adequate. It is not justified, if the tasks are limited to sitting in Vkontakte and printing of abstracts, but for any professional application - is consistent with the proposed joys and facilities.
Choosing between Rostest and Evrotest note that the power supply of Pro quite dimensional. In Rostest domestic fork already built, and in evrotestovskom performance need an adapter. Heavy power pack hanging on the adapter may chip from the socket. So it is best to look for cheap Rostest.
Accomplishments: - a clear, bright, juicy, big display
- Mac axis
- tactile sensations
Limitations: - lack of efficiency of an integrated graphics-heavy sites (solved by switching on the additional card)
Comment: Use noutom two weeks. Very cool thing. Until this was macbook air 2012. Sold because of the small screen diagonal and a normal display. At the beginning of the air liked him very much, but when held in the hands of proshku, I realized that the picture quality and design of air it is not a competitor. In addition, shell shape significantly outperformed the strict proportion of the classical case. Before buying think you just need to think whether you are satisfied with the normal display? I do not have. After the ipad retina can't look at the normal display. Especially, if to consider, that the font on Mac axis poorly rendered.
Below someone wrote about the problems with the touchpad. Their no. Maybe arise over time. But not through the same month)))) I think the water pouring on the laptop is not necessary and all will be well).
coming off wi-fi? Nonsense! Everything works like a clock. Updates deliver)
Image-retention? Not noticed. Yes, skroling on heavy sites have to sign it. Intel is not always good, if the page lot of videos and pictures. Retarding. Sometimes portions of your image, as if to freeze...Not like? Oh my God, turn on the additional card and everything is OK (there are free tools in one click switch). 't see any problem here.
Fragile aluminum)? And the plastic was not fragile?))) buy gnusmas and enjoy life)
speakers Sound bad? Speakers sound great! Juicy, ringing! better than air! Beyond all expectation for the laptop.
an Inconvenient keyboard layout for Russian? Nonsense! Turn on the phonetics or something in the settings (there are 3 choices for the Russian people!)
Some programs pikselirizovanyi? They just are not yet finalized!!!
In General, guys, if You need a screen on the laptop retina must unequivocally. And 15 (13 no complement the card!) Somebody still, take the air. Is a good thing, but it's not about 15))))

Comment: If you need a modern, powerful and mobile laptop - your choice Macbook PRO. I think there is no sense to describe something that is impossible to describe. To understand how it is convenient and the "finished" product, they need to possess. Buying this laptop you will not regret a single penny.
Accomplishments: 1) Excellent display. It IPS matrix with lethal contrast 950:1 (practical professional level), the resolution of 2880:1800 (220 pixels per inch), a good antiblikovost for a glossy display. Thanks to live rendering of colors subjectively, it seems very bright (though in reality the average value of 290 kg/d). The text looks shedevralno, any picture looks bright and lively. 2) Very fast SSD. Blackmagic produces 400 MB/s write and 475 read (perhaps the best result among laptops). Programs are loaded instantly, at the same time there are no problems with defragmentation and inhibitory folders with many files. 3) Very thin and lightweight. 4) there are two USB 3.0. Initially planned to buy an external hard drive to Thunderbolt (average data speeds of 250 to 300 MB/s), eventually settled on yusbishnom and a little lost, recording speed of about 180 MB/s read more 200 5) Quiet. Due to the absence of hard disk and special fans with asymmetric blades was not particularly heard even during the game. 6) Hardware razognannaya video card. Few people know, but embedded in MbPR GT650m not usual with a frequency of 750 MHz and already razognannaya to 900 MHz. In the games, for example, it will increase 10-15% 7) Mac OS X. This is my acquaintance with this OSes, there are pros and cons. Pros - easy to synchronize with another i-devices (notes, pictures, documents etc), lack of viruses, interesting widget system, convenient Mac App Store (compared to Windows Market, for example), no registry and the associated problems. Cons for a month, and found two bugs, hopefully soon pofiksyat. Also killed inability to change what closing the lid - it is in any case goes to sleep. Solved third party programs, but still. Windows in this respect is much more customizable 8) Apple's touchpad. He just cool. For all except professional programs and games copes not worse than any of the mouse, and in some ways even better. 9) Battery holds up very well.
Limitations: 1) If you press hard, places of housing will Shine. No problems with it, but unpleasantly 2) an opportunity easily soiled screen. Touched my finger, will have to scour the trail of cloth or rag 3) the Presence of only two USB. At least one did not prevent 4) Inflated price, though in all countries (Yes, and in America too) 5) Incomprehensible to me a bunch of processor and graphics card. What sense was put% level 3720qm, if it's even in the games is not loaded by more than 40%-50%, while productivity rests on the power of the video card. And Yes, the video card is weak. For that screen at least should put 660m, and it would be better 675m or 680m. Would laptop a little bit thicker but pulled all much better 6) the Brake. They are there. The built-in hd4000 interface Mac OS X will podlagivat constantly. And some sites quick swipe "kill" even discrete 650m. When viewing blyureynyih movies transition to other desktops imply, even as (a drop in FPS up to 10-15 fraction of a second). All this is bad, but I hope the software is easy to change 7) Unexpected updating of a line. Just a month after my purchase little Apple has updated a ruler, providing it with a more powerful protsami and 16 GB RAM for the older version. A trifle, but unpleasant
Comment: Laptop cool. Best screen on the market, good performance, excellent mobility and sufficient functionality. Apple wanted to make a computer for photo editors, but it turned out he did rather for working with the text, journalists, bloggers, writers. Print pleasure eyes again not found. the First pancake is always lumpy, and the machine has many disadvantages hardware character. In the second generation, many of them will be fixable, so doubting in buying this laptop I advise you to wait for the next generation, which will most likely come out in the summer. It will be more balanced and Mature PS - I don't know, lucky for me, but no problems with the screen no. Matrix I samsungovskaya, respectively residual image and could not be (it only matrices from LG), but dead pixels no. Afraid of it very much when buying, but I survived
Accomplishments: 1. Great screen, vivid colors and excellent viewing angles. Very high information capacity due to the high resolution screen is useful in various applications, comrades traders note!
2. Decent design and build quality, although there are minor flaws. Tight hinge mechanism of the screen (unlike Air and many Windows laptops, where all dangles). Design is strict, without a single unnecessary labels or distracting details is a serious tool. Separately pleased with absence of labels under the screen in this model.
3. Relatively compact and slim, given the power and battery life.
4. Battery life at full performance workstation, you can spend an entire day not to use the socket!
5. Ports. While Windows-manufacturers may not even one DP put here two Display Port (Thunderbolt) + HDMI, and it works! This is probably the single laptop on the market currently enabled 3 external monitors. There is also a USB 3.0 and even SD reader.
6. The performance. Even the base model (975) all the flies, enough power for most of the tasks that should be carried out on a laptop. Good processor, 8GB memory and SSDS do the trick.
7. Ergonomics. Awesome keyboard, excellent trackpad - here, Apple is still out of competition.
8. Quiet, but it is important. Advertised «asymmetric» fans really irritate much less than previous models. In the mode of low-load speed of the fans around 2000 rpm, rarely rises in the area of 4000 (with a long video playback), but the game is speeded up to a maximum of 6,000 revolutions.
Limitations: 1. Screen glare and it really strain your eyes. Matte film - I hope will help. The lack of a matte options sad, the same Samsung introduced Matt HiDPI screens look great.
2. There are small schools in the Assembly, such as a known problem with nedokruchennoy bottom panel (squeaks), in early party had problems with screens (now is to meet unrealistic).
3. All the same weight makes itself felt, weight in the region of 1.5 kg would be much more interesting for this laptop, but Apple continues to cut hull of chuguniya - aluminium. Actually especially not potaskaesh, ie, obtained portable workstation, but within the home / office.
4. The amount of RAM would be a little more - 16\32 GB in standard configurations. Model with 16GB difficult to get in our area.
5. More powerful video card would not prevent, although it is worth, and so quite decent. The game kind of Battlefield 3 go well with reasonable settings, but as a gaming powerhouse of this laptop should not be considered.
6. No separate port audio in.
7. OSX. It is certainly full of trash and kindergarten compared with Windows 7, although there are a couple of interesting features, such as Dictation and working Text-to-speech. Fortunately, Windows beautifully placed and operates as via Bootcamp and Parallels. I personally through the use of VPS via the official RDC client from the question of installation of Microsoft Windows is not relevant.
Comment: One of the best laptops on the market, as for OSX, and Windows. Can be recommended even to those who OSX hates. If you need a serious tool for the job is a good choice. Price - fully justified when buying a normal channels, official prices in Russia comment does not make sense. As already pointed out by other commentators, this is the thing for people who appreciate style and quality. Windows manufacturers with their plastic «ultrabukami» unfortunately nothing interesting yet to offer. Retina 15" became the first mass model with HiDPI TV, but on the approach Retina 13" is more lightweight and compact model, it is likely to be only an integrated graphics card and possibly smaller ports.
Limitations: Later, were beaten pixels, but given permission notice them is almost impossible.
Comment: The laptop of the future. One power port on magnets. Screen - tale, passed on it with ThinkPad's T series with the prefix p, which had a matte IPS matrix and have no regrets. Gloss here not a problem but a color like the iPad retina. Cooling system shedevralna in its simplicity and silence. After such laptops feel the progress.
