New Macbook Pro With Retina Display

Apple 15-inch Macbook Pro with Retina display shipping now…

It’s that time of year again – no it’s not Christmas, although it may be comparable for some – Apple has unveiled its new Apple Macbook Pro at its Worldwide Developers Conference, June 11-15th, San Francisco, and as most of the Internet population guessed it features the company’s uber hi-res Retina display.

The new addition significantly bumps up the price, so Apple have seen it fit to keep its Retina-less 13 and 15-inch models with slight hardware upgrades for roughly the same price as previous versions.

Pricing aside, the new 15-inch Macbook with Retina display is truly amazing. It’s super compact weighing in at 4.5lbs and 0.71 inches thick – almost as thin as the Macbook Air, and the stunning 15.4 inch panel boasts a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels with 220 ppi – that’s over 5 million pixels.

That’s 3 million more than an HD television.

If you’re not up to par on the Retina display, which first featured in Apple’s iPhone 4 and iPad 3, the super high-resolution is so dense that the human eye can’t distinguish between individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.

Officially taking the title of the world’s highest resolution notebook display, the Retina panel also reduces glare by 75 percent, has a 29 percent higher contrast then previous generations, and uses IPS technology for a nice 178-degree wide viewing angle.

Under the hood are Intel’s Core i7 quad-core processors available from 2.3 GHz up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7 GHz.

Graphics are handled using Intel HD Graphics 4000 and NVIDIA’s GeForce GT 650M discrete graphics card with 1GB of GDDR memory and automatic switching. The machine comes with 8GB RAM as standard, but can be configured up to 16GB. Hard disks are flash, and available in 256GB, 512GB, or 768GB.

Apple have also revised in the ins and outs and removed the optical drive, and redesigned the Mag Safe adaptor. The Mag Safe 2 adaptor will not fit older models, and vice versa for the original Mag Safe adaptor, but apple have manufacture handy connectors so users don’t necessarily have to buy a new charger if they have an old on lying around. Connections include 2 x Thunderbolt, 2 x USB 3.0, HDMI and SD card reader.

Even with all the extra power on board, the battery allows for 7 hours of wireless productivity, and even with the screen at 65 percent brightness the machine still lasts at least 5 hours even if its playing HD video.

Apple also claim the speakers to be, ”The best stereo speakers we’ve put into a notebook.”

Along with hardware upgrades across the board, Apple has chosen an all flash architecture – no spinning disks in the HDD allows for quicker computing as well as a slimmer profile.

“The MacBook Pro with Retina display pushes the limits of performance and portability like no other notebook. With a gorgeous Retina display, all flash architecture and a radically thin and light design, the new MacBook Pro is the most advanced Mac we have ever built.” [Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO]
