Apple reveals thinner MacBook Pro with Retina display and USB 3-with UK pricing details
Apple has updated its MacBook Pro line of laptops, revealing a redesigned thinner and ligher model with a Retina Display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800-as well as adding new Intel chips to models with the current design.
While not wedge-shaped like the Air, the new slimline MacBook Pro is about the same thickness as the thickest part of the Air at 0.71-inches thin. In fact it is thinner than Phil Schiller's finger when closed, about as thick as the base of the old MacBook Pro. The new laptop weighs in at 4.46 pounds, according to Apple. It's the "Lightest pro notebook than they've ever made. Lighter than 13-inch Pro," claimed Phil Schiller.
The sleek MacBook Pro also offers: "A breakthrough in display engineering." Yes, it features a Retina display, news that got a big cheer from the audience.
"The pixels are so small, that from a normal working distance, you can't see the pixels," claimed Schiller. The display is 15.4 inches across, but its pixel density is 2,880 x 1,800 he explained. That's 4x the number of pixels: "The world's highest resolution notebook display."
The svelte MacBook Pro also includes Ivy Bridge processors offering speeds of up to 2.7GHz. The 15in MacBook Pro offers a quad-core i7. It also offers 1600MHz memory, and integrated graphics up to 60% faster.
The discrete graphics are faster too, the GeForce GT 650M (Kepler architecture) is up to 1GB faster, and 60 per cent faster than previous discrete graphics, according to Phil Schiller. A new Nvidia graphics chip has also debuted.
The MacBook Pros offer USB 3.0 as well as USB 2.0, and of course Thunderbolt.
