Apple introduces new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Recommended Posts




The Verge - "Apple has confirmed the rumors, and has announced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display. The model shares many of the same features first introduced in the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, including a redesigned, slimmer chassis that omits the optical drive found in previous MacBook Pros. The chassis is 20 percent thinner than the previous 13-inch MacBook Pro that it replaces. The highlight feature is undoubtedly the screen, and it should impress thanks to its 227 pixels per inch and 2560 x 1600 screen resolution. Just like its 15-inch sibling, the screen has four times as many pixels as the non-Retina machine it replaces (which came in at decidedly subpar 1280 x 800). The IPS panel is said to have a 178-degree viewing angle, 75 percent reduced reflection, and 300 nits brightness.


Of course, Apple's engineers lost some space to work with when shrinking down the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, as the 13-inch model's footprint is quite a bit smaller. That's reflected in the model's 0.75-inch thickness — 0.04 inches thicker than the 15-inch model — though the laptop weighs in at only 3.57 pounds. Still, the new machine does match the 15-inch's port selection, with two Thunderbolt and two USB 3.0 ports, as well as an HDMI port, SD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, and MagSafe 2 power connector. As with every other MacBook Pro, the laptop has a FaceTime HD camera, dual mics, and stereo speakers that Apple claims improve on the performance of the previous model, despite its smaller size. The keyboard is also full-sized, though the speaker grilles have been moved from the sides to the edges of the machine."
