MacBook Pro/w Retina display (2013) vs MacBook Air (2014)


All MacBooks ship with the OS X Mavericks operating system. Apple throws in the iWorks suite - Pages, Numbers and Keynotes - as well as iPhoto, iMovie and Garageband free of charge.

Apple will offer free operating systems upgrades every year and the products on test should be supported for at least the next five years.

Winner - Draw - There is nothing to separate the laptops when it comes to pre-loaded software.
