Description

The different specifications for this model make it an affordable and portable powerhouse for students, business, and personal use. This machine is great for those who need a machine to work from home, work remotely, require a machine for distance learning, and/or take online classes - with the ability to use low resource activities like blogging, enjoying streaming online content, and document creation without bogging down the system. Dual graphics processors allow the machine to regulate its memory usage by offloading some of the processing to the dedicated graphics chip, which frees up the machine's memory for other tasks - ideal for photography, photo editing, graphic design and illustration, 3d modeling, animation, motion graphics, video editing, podcasting, music production, and gaming.

The MacBook Pro 15" is the perfect mobile workstation for users looking for more power and screen space.  The high-resolution (2880 x 1800), LED-backlit LCD screen provides vivid and clear picture, but is also equipped with a 720p FaceTime HD front-facing camera so you can FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom with friends, family, co-workers - anyone!  The dual graphics chips allow for the machine to allocate more memory for large tasks that require lots of processing power.  It is capable of top of the line WiFi wireless internet connection and includes Bluetooth, which allows you to connect your favorite wireless devices such as printers, mice, keyboards, speakers, and other Bluetooth-capable accessories. This machine has two USB 3.0 ports for wired peripherals, but also two Thunderbolt ports (which are backwards-compatible with mini DisplayPort) and a HDMI port for connecting external monitors or TVs.  It also has a single Audio In/Out port for connection to speakers and other audio equipment, but the system itself has an on-board microphone and speakers. 

The MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.3 15-Inch features an "Ivy Bridge" 2.3 GHz Intel "Core i7" quad core processor, up to 16 GB of onboard 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM, up to 512 GB of solid state flash storage, dual graphics processors -- a NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and an "integrated" Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor that shares system memory, a beautiful high-resolution LED-backlit 15.4" widescreen 2880x1800 (220 ppi) "retina" display, as well as an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam, AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, two "Thunderbolt" ports, an HDMI port, an audio in/out port, an SDXC card slot, a backlit keyboard, a "no button" glass "inertial" multi-touch trackpad, a "MagSafe 2" power adapter, and an internal, sealed battery - in a thin, sleek case design that weighs a bit less than 4.5 pounds (2.02 kg).
