    Apple MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) review

    By 10 August 2012

    When Apple announced the update to its MacBook Pro line in June 2012, we had anticipated a slimmer, new design and high-resolution screen. While that did happen in the form of the Retina display, the standard MacBook Pro range wasn't axed. Enter the MacBook...

    Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2011) review

    By 23 November 2011

    The 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro, until recently, was a bit of a misnomer. There wasn't much Pro about a Core 2 Duo processor and the Sandy-Bridge-packing 15- and 17-inch options out specced it massively. It felt like a bulkier MacBook Air and in some cases,...
