Apple has unveiled a new MacBook Pro, complete with Retina display, at its WWDC event in San Francisco. Watch below the Hands on Review video from cnet.
The new generation laptop, known simply as the MacBook Pro (or new MacBook Pro) as previously, houses the world’s highest resolution notebook display with a 2880 x 1800 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 220ppi. The size of the display is 15.4-inches and currently there are no other "Retina" models. Apple says "we can expect glare to be reduced by 75 per cent - handy for these sunny days - and it uses IPS as previous Apple displays have".
Apple is promising up to seven hours of battery life and 30 days' standby. And, best of all, it is shipping from today with prices starting at £1,799 for the 15-inch new MacBook Pro.
The new Macbook pro runs with 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA Kepler GT 650M graphics, up to a quad-core 2.7GHz Core i7 processor, a maximum 768GB of SSD storage, and seven hours of battery life with 30 days standby. Apple removed the optical drive, so you will need an external drive if you want to play those DVDs. Apple likewise removed the Ethernet and FireWire 800 ports. Apple decided to replace these with two USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt inputs. There’s also one HDMI port. The MagSafe connector has also been changed and is now thinner.
There are plenty of options available for configuration, at various price points, with the 2.6GHz Core i7, 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD version costing a cool £2,299.
