FREE! Protective Hardshell Case and silicone keyboard cover included (a $70 value)!
Late 2013 to mid 2014 model
With fourth-generation Intel Core processors, the latest graphics, and faster flash storage, the incredibly advanced 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display moves even further ahead in performance and battery life.
Measuring a mere 0.71 inches and weighing only 3.46 pounds, the MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users. The world's highest resolution notebook display with over 4 million pixels — 2 million more than an HD television — the MacBook Pro with Retina display has such a high pixel density that the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.
This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (model ME865LL/A) features a 2.4 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 256 GB of flash storage, and 8 GB of onboard RAM.
It's powered by OS X El Capitan, the world's most advanced operating system and built to bring out the best in your Mac.
The MacBook Pro also includes both two high-speed Thunderbolt 2 ports and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals. With up to 60 percent faster PCIe-based flash storage compared to the previous generation and new 802.11ac Wi-Fi for up to 3x faster wireless, the new MacBook Pro is quicker and more responsive than ever. You'll also get up to 9 hours of battery life while on the go.
Breakthrough Retina Display
At over 4 million pixels (227 pixels-per-inch), the Retina display's pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2560-by-1600 resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. You'll see fine details and textures in photos like never before, and even tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnail. The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle.
Fourth-Generation Intel Core Processor
Since OS X is designed to take advantage of each core, the fourth-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor (based on the latest Haswell architecture) captures every bit of performance from the processor. When you need more power for a processor-intensive application like Aperture or Final Cut Pro, Turbo Boost 2.0 automatically increases the speed of the active cores. And by shifting core frequency in small increments, Turbo Boost allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency.
This model features a 2.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.9 GHz. It's complemented by Intel Iris integrated graphics, which can boost performance by up to 90 percent (over the previous generation MacBook Pro with Retina display) — so it can handle both everyday tasks and graphics-intensive creative apps.
Flash Storage Architecture
With its entirely flash-based architecture, the MacBook Pro with Retina display makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive — starting up takes seconds, apps launch quickly, even navigating the desktop feels incredibly fluid. The key is the new PCle-based flash storage, which provides faster read and write performance — up to 60 percent faster than the previous-generation MacBook Pro. And flash storage is extremely energy efficient, which means your MacBook Pro also has the ability to stay in standby mode for up to a month, without plugging in.
802.11ac: The New Definition of Fast
The MacBook Pro now supports ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi. When connected to an 802.11ac base station — including the AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule — wireless performance is up to three times faster than with the previous generation of MacBook Pro. And your Wi-Fi range improves as well.
Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3
Delivering an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions, the ultrafast and ultraflexible Thunderbolt port allows you to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800. You can also daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals without using a hub. Thunderbolt also supports DisplayPort for high resolution displays and works with existing adapters for HDMI, DVI, and VGA displays.
The MacBook Pro also comes with two USB 3 ports, enabling you to connect your external hard drive and transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2. And you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, or digital camera.

What's in the Box
MacBook Pro with Retina display, MagSafe 2 Power Adapter, AC wall plug.
Note: The MacBook Pro with Retina display does not come with an optical drive, however OS X Mountain Lion offers the convenient DVD or CD Sharing feature, which lets you wirelessly "borrow" the optical drive of a nearby Mac or PC. So you can install applications from a DVD or CD and have full access to an optical drive without having to carry one around. Additionally, you can connect an optional optical drive (such as the Apple USB SuperDrive) via one of the USB ports.
