Marketing Information

The popular G73 series has been updated with the recent release of Intel's 2nd generation Core i3/i5/i7 for an even faster notebook. With performance rivaling that of a desktop computer, the G73SW is ready for anything that you throw at it, from office applications to video encoding and gaming.

Strength. Lightness.
Beauty. Seamlessly integrated.

MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminium, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It's called the unibody. And the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro, you'll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined. And it feels strong and durable - perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.

Incredibly powerful. By design.

When we designed the MacBook Pro with Retina display, we started with a blank slate. That gave us the freedom to imagine something radical, something entirely different. A notebook so thin, so light, and so powerful. A notebook designed for the future, but ready to use today.
