MacBook Pro Design
With its durable unibody enclosure, Multi-Touch trackpad, and energy-efficient design, MacBook Pro looks beautiful. And works beautifully.
Strength. Lightness. Beauty. Seamlessly integrated.
A display full of bright ideas.
Everything Apple designers and engineers do, they do for a reason. They chose LED backlight technology for the MacBook Pro because it makes the display instantly bright and allows it to be incredibly thin. They used edge-to-edge glass not just because it looks beautiful, but because it lends structure to the display. And at the top of the screen they hid the new built-in FaceTime HD camera. So you see your friends and family in big, beautiful widescreen — and as little of the camera as possible.
Multi-Touch trackpad. It just feels right.
Easy access to connections and ports.
Designed to make an impact. Just not on the environment.
