As expected, Apple today unveiled the 13-inch model of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The new MacBook Pro, similar to the 15-inch model that was introduced earlier this year, sports aб═2560 x 1600 resolution display, and lacks an optical drive to reduce weight and thickness.
The new MacBook Pro packs more than 4 million pixels into its 13-inch Retina display, nearly twice the number of pixels in an HD television. At 227 pixels per inch, the Retina displayБ─≥s pixel density is so high the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels at a normal viewing distance, so images look sharp and text looks like it does on the printed page. With four times the pixels of the current 13-inch MacBook Pro, you can view and edit video in pixel-accurate 1080p and see a new level of detail in high resolution images. The 13-inch Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 percent less reflection and 28 percent higher contrast than the current generation.
The base model of the 13-inchб═MacBook Pro with Retina Display will start atб═$1,699, giving users 128 GB of flash storage and 8 GB of RAM.
