Apple unveils MacBook Pro with retina display
Brace yourselves for Apple’s next generation MacBook Pro.
The newly revealed gadget boasts retina display, a 15.4-inch screen and an ultrabook-rivalling height of 1.8cm and weight of 2kg. As for its display, how about a 2,880 x 1,800 resolution? That equates to more than five million total pixels and 220 pixels-per-inch.
Apple's native apps will be updated to take advantage of the retina display, and Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said developers are working on updates for other apps, including Adobe Photoshop.
The laptop comes with a very-welcomed HDMI port, an SD card reader, two Thunderbolt ports and two USB 3.0/2.0 ports. The new MacBook Pro will come with up to 768GB of flash memory-based hard drive space, up to 16GB of memory and an Intel quad-core Ivy Bridge processor chip.
The next generation MacBook Pro costs USD2,199 (around RM7,000) and began shipping following the keynote.
