Description

Retina Display

This system features a LED-backlit display with IPS technology which improves the overall experience of the screen, especially while binge-watching Netflix; however, you’ll see the most significant difference in text. Whether it’s reading emails or texting the words will be crisp on the screen with less fuzziness around the edges.

Your screen is made up of tiny pixels which display different colours that make up the image you see. Pixels are tiny, however, the smaller you make them, the more you can fit in the same area. A standard pixel is typically around 0.26mm wide whereas Retina is closer to 0.16mm. This smaller size creates a sharper, clearer image.

Suitability

This MacBook Pro Retina 15 Inch is configured with an impressive specification, this Mac will feel snappy and won’t keep you waiting. You’ll find that any work on documents, web browsing, emails, media streaming films or videos, online banking or more will seem effortless.
