Apple Intros 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple today introduced an all-new version of its popular 13-inch MacBook Pro featuring a Retina display and all flash storage in a new compact design. At a mere 0.75 inches and 3.57 pounds, the portable 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is 20 percent thinner and almost a pound lighter than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro.

"The 13-inch MacBook Pro is our most popular Mac, and today it gets completely reinvented with a new thin and light design, fast flash storage and a gorgeous Retina display," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "With vivid colors, razor sharp text and more pixels than anyone else's 15 or 17-inch notebooks, the Retina display completely changes what you expect from a notebook."

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is available with a 2.5 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, 8GB of memory and 128GB of flash storage starting at $1,699 (US); and with 256GB of flash storage starting at $1,999 (US). Configure-to-order options include faster dual-core Intel Core i7 processors and flash storage up to 768GB.

I'm waiting until Apple discontinues the standard models from the line. I have a feeling that prices on the retina models will drop then. If that's how it goes.

I just bought a MacBook Pro 13" last week from Amazon for $1012.

$1,699 for the same machine with a retina display??? No thanks.

I wanted this machine, but the price tag is a deal breaker for me. I'm actually leaning towards the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga now. I saw one at Best Buy and it's unbelievable. It offers a lot of computer and tablet for the money.
