Following on from the news about a rise in cost for replacing the Retina MacBook Pro battery we are now going to take a look at a few video reviews, which are perfect for those of our readers that want some visual insight rather than traditional text based reviews.

The first video covers a MacBook Pro Retina review that runs for almost 24- minutes, and they quickly point out that the 15.4-inch new MacBook Pro brings some enhanced technology along with an innovative Retina display, which has two layers of glass for reduced glare. The reviewer looks at the main specs in detail and explains exactly why they are good/bad, and of course a lot of focus is put on the display and resolution.

In the second video you’ll see how the Retina MacBook Pro performs at boot up and during some speed tests, which include read and write speeds for the SSD that show a x2 improvement in performance.

The third video focuses entirely on the Retina display and explains how the screen is the most pixel dense for any MacBook with 220 pixels per inch, which basically means you won’t be able to see the pixels. The text looks really crisp and with high definition photos you can really see the difference. They also explain how third party apps look worse in some circumstances, but this should only be an inconvenience for a short time until these apps are updated.

Watch these videos and let us know if they make you want the Retina MacBook Pro more or less?
