According to Apple, the addition of the Retina display makes the new MacBook Pro the world’s highest resolution notebook display. It crams in over 4 million pixels and boasts a 178-degree wide viewing angle along with 75 per cent less reflection and 29 per cent higher contrast than the model it replaces.
The MacBook pro has two USB 3 ports, two Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port, a headphone jack, and an SDXC card slot.
The computer charges with a MagSafe 2 port, which uses the new T-shaped connector (the older L-shaped chargers require an adapter).
The two models are available in the market with dual core 2.5 GHz (with Turbo boost to 3.1 GHz) Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB DDR3 RAM, and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000.
