The new 15-inch MacBook Pro for 2015 has arrived, picking up a trio of component upgrades on the way. Apple’s best laptop features the same design and layout as the first Retina notebook that launched in 2012, and once again two models are available. Apple is claiming one more hour of battery life for this MacBook Pro compared to last year’s 13 inch MacBook Pro moving from 8 to 9 hours of wireless web-browsing time.
The new Force Touch track pad is something of a departure though, and even though the track pad looks identical on the surface, it is now a fixed, and has strain gauges, electromagnet solenoids and additional processors and algorithms to do its work. Considering how PC performance was languishing with little change in storage speed when compared to ever-rising CPU increases roughly in line with Moore’s Law, Apple has accomplished much as other PC builders complacently stuck fast with outdated data-transfer technologies. We’re not quite sure how it’s been done, but exactly as promised we find one hour was added to unplugged run time.
Macbook pro 15 inch Features and Specification:
Last year’s MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) with the same 2.5 GHz Core i7 processor lasted for 7 hr 57 min.This year’s model with the same CPU ran for 8 hr 58 min, which we’re happy to call ‘9-hour battery life’.
The new 15 inch MacBook Pro models also offers exactly the same capacity of storage for the two standard models, but there is more to the storage than the 256 GB or 512 GB on offer when compared to last year’s models, according to Apple.The company stated at launch that the updated 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display features up to 2.5 times faster flash storage than the previous generation, with throughput up to 2 GBps. The 15 inch MacBook Pro has a Retina display that offers a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels.
