Deal: Apple £1,193 MacBook Pro laptop with Retina Display

Apple sells it online for £1,449 but you can get the same with an 18 per cent discount at Amazon. "it" is the new Apple MacBook Pro laptop with Retina Display, one that was unveiled earlier this year, that the online retailer sells for £1,193.38.

The product, which carries the item string ME662B/A, comes with a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor clocked at 2.6Ghz with a Turbo Boost of up to 3.2GHz (possibly the 3337U), 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, a seven hour battery life, Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU, Mac OSX Mountain Lion and that 13.3in Retina Display screen with a sumptuous 2,560 x 1,800 resolution.

At 1.6Kg and with a thickness of only 19mm, this MacBook Pro would possibly make a perfect Ultrabook if Apple ever thought of launching one someday.

One major disappointment though remains the fact that it is not based on the Haswell architecture which was unveiled four months later. But still, despite that, this laptop remains a wonderful top notch device with no real rival in the Windows world. Check out our review of the Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display 13in here.
