In Summary
Apple has released the 2015 version of the MacBook Pro hardly changed compared with the version that came out in 2013. The laptop still has an excellent screen is very well organized and has a very long battery life of 11.5 hours while browsing through the fast yet economical Broadwell processor. The new force touch ‘touchpad is a nice invention, which we did not think we missed him. Despite the small number of changes, the price is increased considerably.

VerdictIn early March, Apple announced during one of his keynotes a completely new, thin and light laptop with Core M, for which the name ‘MacBook’ was again taken out of mothballs. Much attention was paid to the new MacBook, making us almost unaware that Apple would be other laptops, the MacBook Air and the 13 “Pro -MacBook of faster processors, faster SSD and has a new pad. The new MacBook is not yet available, but the MacBook Pro does. We were able to test the basic model to see how the improvements birth.The changes to the MacBook Pro are limited to distinguish the internal hardware of the laptop and therefore the new MacBook Pro outside not from its predecessor. Pastor who himself was a further development of the MacBook Pro Retina in 2012 and despite the nearly three year old design, we find the MacBook Pro still does not look stale.

Or aesthetic reasons, have formed the basis of the unchanged housing we do not know, but for the strength we see no need to make adjustments. The aluminum case feels solid, as you would expect from a laptop of almost fifteen hundred euros. Compare your MacBook Pro with the average ultrabook, then the weight will be a little disappointing; MacBook weighs almost 1.6 kilograms, while many ultrabooks sit around 1.4 kilograms.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2015) As the housing is the keyboard of the MacBook Pro remained unchanged. The flat, black keys are backlit and do not have too much travel; something that we see in many ultrabooks. Through the use of a thin housing the keyboard is also thinner, with a short travel distance as a result. The keyboard itself gives clear feedback.

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2015) The touchpad has been changed and now Force touch functionality, so the touchpad is not only down, but in every place ‘pushing’ is. Force touch furthermore causes that your touchpad ‘deeper’ in can press, thus again which adds extra functionality to the touchpad. The operation of touch Force relies on a clever piece of delusion, because although you will experience it as the touchpad itself is not moving. Press the touchpad surface, you hear clicking sound coming from the laptop and thanks to a vibrating motor surface moves somewhat. Press harder, you will hear two clicks and the vibrating motor activated twice. Before you feel the surface seems to definitely move down, but that’s not the case.The additional force touch-click gives the ability to display previews of different things again. Force a touch-click on an image displays using QuickLook preview delivers again and within Safari on a preview of the website located behind the link. For us touch force a useful addition to the existing movements of the multitouch touchpad, though it was not a functionality that we missed tremendously. The sensitivity is set and if you do not want to use force touch, then the functionality, like just disable all other multitouch gestures.

The Force touch touchpad after little has changed on the outside. The connectivity options are also unchanged. Links are a USB 3.0 port, two Thunderbolt 2, a 3.5mm jack and the magnetic MagSafe connector. The USB c connector that Apple installs on the new MacBook, has not yet made its way to the MacBook Pro.

Right there is a SD card reader, HDMI and the second USB 3.0 connection. Ethernet and Firewire are not provided, but can be used with the help of adapter cables on the Thunderbolt connections.
