Apple 13-Inch Macbook Pro with Retina (Space Grey) - (Intel Core i5 3.1 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD,Mac OS X)

Processors that Provide Incredible Power, and use Incredibly Little

With seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook Pro delivers amazing performance. So you can move fast - even when powering through pro-level processing jobs like rendering 3D models and encoding video. At the same time, it can conserve energy when taking on lighter tasks, like browsing the web and checking email. And 10-bit HEVC hardware acceleration comes as standard on MacBook Pro, which will let you take even more advantage of the boosts in 4K video compression and streaming performance coming in macOS High Sierra.

Touch Bar and Touch ID, A Revolutionary New Way to use Your Mac

The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you're doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use - system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more. And now Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.

Eye-opening Graphics Performance

Every 13-inch model features powerful integrated graphics with 64MB of embedded DRAM, which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most - creating amazing work.

Retina Display, The Brightest, Most Colourful Mac Notebook Display Ever

The display in the MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. Its large pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it power efficient.
