Is the laptop dead? Every month, some new study hammers home the point that people are spending more and more time with smartphones and tablets. All the while, those big, blocky laptops on our desks end up gathering dust — or so the theory goes.
That theory is horse manure if you happen to have Apple‘s latest 13-inchMacBook Pro with Retina display (which I’ll abbreviate to rMBP). I’ve been using the small-size rMBP for the past week and a half, and it’s a Herculean task to put this sucker down. The new Pro epitomizes what we want in a laptop in 2013: It’s lightweight, has incredible performance and gets amazing battery life. Why the heck would I pick up my phone when I’ve got this?
I’d even argue the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro has an edge over its 15-inch brother.
As a photographer, I have to choose power over appearance. MacBook Pro is the perfect laptop for any use.
