The MacBook Pro Retina Display was presented last month and the main novelty we encountered a screen Retina Display that offers a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels. With the base configuration, the MacBook Pro has a processor Intel Core i7 architecture based on Ivy Bridge, 8GB of RAM, a GeForce GT 650M and 256GB of storage using FLASH memory.
But there is something we always like to do, and try other operating systems and in this case is Windows 7. Let’s see what happens when the MacBook Pro will install the Microsoft operating system.
Install Windows 7 on MacBook Pro Retina Display is a simpler process than it seems. We started using the system Boot Camp and a USB SuperDrive, along with an installation disc of Windows 7 or an ISO image. Once you have everything set up just to open the wizardBoot Camp and follow the instructions, you must also partition the hard drive with at least 30GB.
All drivers required for correct operation is downloaded from Apple’s servers before you start installing Windows 7, so no problem in this regard. Finally begin installing Windows 7, but the guys ArsTechnica report that they got the third try.
After installing Windows 7 on MacBook Pro Retina Display shows the first problem, and resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels that offers the screen, so that all texts are very small. This is solved by simply rescale the fonts and graphical interfaces to 150% from the control panel of Windows 7.
We are going to see a series of test which compares the performance of Windows 7 with the Mac OS X version 10.7.4.
