How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Despite the release of the Must-have MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the 15-inch MacBook Pro remains a compelling option, given its lower price, strong performance, and more affordable storage options. However, optional upgrades can bring its price up to Retina-level, so choose your configuration based on your actual needs, and be prepared to consider the Retina model instead. It's not like you'll be disappointed.
