Apple Unveils Dazzling New 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display
Apple today kicked off its media event with the presentation of a new, redesigned, Retina display-ready 13-inch MacBook Pro - a move that builds upon the popularity of the number-one selling Mac.
Unveiled today by Philip Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, the new MacBook Pro is 25% thinner than the previous model and weighs just 3 pounds. It goes without saying that this is the lightest MacBook Pro ever released by Apple.
The machine is all but 0.75 inches thick and the MacBook Pro's stunning Retina display has more than 4 times the pixels of the previous model. Also included is a FaceTime HD camera, up to 7 hours of battery life, dual microphones, a backlit keyboard, and a pretty sweet glass multi-touch trackpad.
The 2.5 GHZ model starts at $1,699. That comes with 8 gigs of RAM and a 128-gigabyte flash drive. The refreshed MacBook Pro will be ready to ship today.
