Apple reveals 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display
During Apple's press event today, the tech giant revealed a brand new version of its popular 13-inch MacBook Pro. Checking in at .75 inches and 3.57 pounds, the new MacBook Pro is 20% thinner and almost a pound lighter than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro. And yes, it features Apple's signature Retina display.
“The 13-inch MacBook Pro is our most popular Mac, and today it gets completely reinvented with a new thin and light design, fast flash storage and a gorgeous Retina display,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With vivid colors, razor sharp text and more pixels than anyone else’s 15 or 17-inch notebooks, the Retina display completely changes what you expect from a notebook.”
The new MacBook Pro boasts more than 4 million pixels in its 13-inch Retina display, nearly twice the number of pixels in an HD television. Additionally, the MacBook Pro features 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processors with the option to choose faster 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 processors, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 8GB of 1600 MHz memory, and up to 768GB of flash storage. It also includes a FaceTime HD camera, dual microphones, improved speakers, Bluetooth 4.0, and MagSafe 2 power port. Apple also claims the battery delivers up to 7 hours of wireless productivity and can remain in standby for up to 30 days.
The redesigned 13-inch MacBook Pro is available now with prices starting at $1,699 for the 8GB memory, 128GB flash storage model. The model with 256GB of storage starts at $1,999.
