The MacBook Pro Retina 2.2GHz from Apple is a fast and powerful computer that sits right at the top of the pantheon of great laptops. Although an absolute beast, it’s still light and elegant, and UK buyers would be advised to check it out if you’re in the hunt for a new laptop.
The Apple MacBook Pro, with its updated 2.2GHz processor performance – a significant improvement on previous models – can handle even the heaviest of games and tasks without ‘hanging’ or juddering. With its Core i7 processor, you can be sure that even the most frenetic multitasking will still leave waiting times reduced to a bare minimum. Although the Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2.2GHz is strong and powerful, it retains the familiar elegance that Apple have made their trademark. For example, housed within a gorgeous brushed aluminium body you’ll find its much-heralded Retina display. Ensuring razor sharp images and videos, it’s a screen of incomparable beauty.

When you read emails or articles they look so sharp you’ll feel like you’re reading it on print paper.

On standby the MacBook will last up to a staggering 30 days on a single charge.
