See the MPG review of the 2015 MacBook Pro.
Want the very fastest model? MPG recommends the Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro Retina (Mid 2015), 2.8GHz / Radeon R9 M370X / 16GB / 1TB at authorized Apple dealer B&H Photo. Save money on AppleCare too.
Here are MPG’s top picks for accessories to add to the 2015 MBP Retina:
- The OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock and/or the TRIPP Lite 8-port USB3 hub.
- AppleCare for MacBook pro (MPG highly recommends AppleCare for all laptops).
- Fast USB3 card reader (for those using CompactFlash cards).
- Pocket-size 1TB USB3 SSD for travel backups and similar.
- Keyboard and mouse (along with external display) so that the MBP can “dock” at home as if it were a desktop.
- High capacity “home base” storage system.
- A 4K display such as the LG 31MU97, or (pro grade) NEC PA322UHD or (possibly, to be tested soon here at MPG), the Dell UP2715K 27" UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K LED Backlit IPS Monitor
