During Apple’s WWDC keynote this morning, the new, next generation MacBook Pro was announced. The new Macbook Pro has a few features that have been rumored for a while now, the most popular rumor being Retina display.
The next gen Macbook Pro has an incredible display: a 2800 x 1800 resolution on a 15.4-inch screen with well over 5 million pixels. This will blow away your HDTV pixel-wise. This device is thinner than a finger, weighs 4.5 pounds, and has Intel’s fastest new Ivy Bridge processors—Quad-Core 2.7 GHz. Up to 16 GB of RAM and quad-core Intel i5/i7 chips will also be a part of this new device. This will also be ideal for gaming, since it is packed with Nvidia’s Kepler GeForce GT 650M. But wait, there’s more. You can get an incredible 768GB SSD drive. On the side of the device are two Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI slot, an SD card slot, USB 3.0, and “MagSafe 2.”
The device starts at $2199 with a 2.3 GHz Ivy Bridge processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 SSD. Ships today.
