Apple MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.0 15" Late 2013 Specs

MacBook Pro - ME293LL/A - MacBookPro11,2 - A1398

About This Mac

The introduction of the MacBook Pro Retina Display with a “Core i7” processor with 8 GB of onboard 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM and 256 GB of flash storage followed as Apple continued the production of the series in late 2013. This version is a class of its own combining a beautiful high-resolution LED-backlit 15.4” widescreen 2880×1800 “retina” display with a thin, sleek case design. It is an almost perfect blend of performance and style.


This MacBook Pro has a 256 GB of flash storage by default. This figure is already a major improvement from the hard drives featured in previous generations. Since the flash storage runs fast, it is still used by many models up to this day. This standard storage is configurable to 512 GB or 1 TB for an additional cost. Apple does not encourage the upgrade, but it is possible with the right professionals.

    Screen Size and Resolution

    The MacBook Pro a1398 comes with a 15.4” color widescreen LED-backlit display with IPS technology with a 2880×1800 native resolution at 220 ppi (178-degree viewing angle). It flaunts a crisp huge canvas that supports scaled resolutions of 1024 by 640, 1280 by 200, 1680 by 1050, and 1920 by 1200.

      Inclusive Features

      The MacBook Pro includes the following features and ports:

      • 802.11ac Wi-Fi
      • Bluetooth 4.0 allowing for quick PAN (Personal Area Network) connections and transfers
      • Two USB 3.0 Ports are supplied for the connection of external keyboards, printers, external hard disks etc.

          Processor & Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

          This MacBook Pro “Core i7” 2.0 GHz 15-Inch Late 2013 is available with a pre-installed MacOS X 10.9 (13A3017) with an integrated Intel Iris 5200 Pro graphics processor and a 128 MB of “Crystalwell” embedded DRAM.

          This Crystalwell architecture is the brand of Intel for fourth-generation Core processors that is paired with a powerful graphics processor. It also has four independent processors “cores” that are attached to a single silicon chip. Moreover, the system handles a “Turbo Boost 2.0” that automatically changes and increases the speed depending on its active core. This helps improve performance whenever necessary.

          Memory & Architecture

          Any application installed on the MacBook Pro is guaranteed to run faster with its 256k level 2 cache and 6 MB Level 3 cache plus 8 GB of onboard 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM for its RAM. This functions through a 64-Bit Haswell or Crystal architecture. This design doubles the battery life of your Mac. It’s a cutting edge technology that utilizes a 22-nanometer process that launches one-two punch of better performance and refined energy efficiency.

          Battery Life

          MacBook Pro features a sealed 95-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery that gives an estimated battery life of 8 hours of wireless web.
