Phil Schiller Unveils New 13" Retina MacBook Pro
Phil Schiller is now on stage discussing the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is now 3.46 pounds, and down to an impressive 0.71 inches thick.
The new machines run 4th-generation dual-core Haswell chips. And Iris integrated graphics add to the experience as well.
Speaking to "closet Batman fans," Schiller says the machine now delivers up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge, meaning you can watch the whole Dark Knight trilogy on one charge.
The refreshed MacBook Pro gives us 802.11ac Wi-Fi (that's about 3 times faster than 802.11n). Thunderbolt 2 is also approximately twice as fast as the previous generation.
The thinner, lighter MacBook Pro ships today (includes OS X Mavericks) with a price tag of $1,299. For $1,299 (as opposed to the last model initially priced at 1,499), you get 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
