During the WWDC event Apple has announced a new MacBook Pro laptop that uses the retina display that has been previously only used in the iPhone and iPad devices. The new laptop simply known as the MacBook Pro as previously, features world’s highest resolution notebook display with a 2880 x 1800 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 220ppi. The size of the screen measures 15.4-inches. Mac Apps have to update to take benefit of the retina display. Apple has been working with developers to do that. Adobe Photoshop will get an update to take advantage of the Retina display.
The next-gen MacBook Pro is 25% thinner than existing models, and is now roughly the thickness of your finger. Under the hood the next-gen MacBook Pro comes up with a a quad-core 2.7GHz processor, 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia Kepler graphics card. Housed on the side of the device is an SD slot, HDMI connection, Thunderbolt, USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 connector. “Bringing uniformity across platforms is just wonderful,” said Van Baker, an analyst at Gartner. “Now you can look at apps on the smaller devices and then again on the laptop. It’s little things like that, a bunch of little things that are delightful little features that collectively make for a much better experience.” The Next Generation MacBook Pro starts shipping today, with pricing starting at $2,199.
