The mid-2014 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display isn’t a huge leap forward — primarily a processor speed bump and a price drop. But this model, the entry-level release, also benefits from a memory increase. The previous entry-level Retina MacBook Pro had just 4GB of RAM, but this new one has 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3L onboard memory. The result is one of the most value-packed laptops on the market.

Apple’s approach to its major tentpole products — iPhones, iPads, iMacs, and MacBooks — can be viewed in two distinct phases: revolutionize and refine. Save for last year’s introduction of the Retina display, the MacBook family has been solidly in the "refinement" zone, and this year’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is no different. That’s not to say that Apple hasn’t made some welcome changes underneath the machine’s svelte — and oh-so-slightly slimmer — chassis to please new buyers, or those who must be forever on the cutting edge.
That iPad Air you bought over the weekend is good for a great many things, but if you happened to invest a little extra into the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, you'll find it has the potential to be the best LTE-equipped mobile hotspot ever.
