Apple unveils 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display

Features Intel Core i7 quad-core processors up to 2.7 GHz speed

By CBR Staff Writer

Apple has unveiled an all new 15-inch MacBook Pro that features a Retina display, all flash storage and quad-core processors, and measures 0.71 inches in thickness and weighs 4.46 pounds.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said the MacBook Pro with Retina display pushes the limits of performance and portability like no other notebook.

"With a gorgeous Retina display, all flash architecture and a radically thin and light design, the new MacBook Pro is the most advanced Mac we have ever built," Cook added.

The new MacBook Pro Retina display offers a display with over 5 million pixels at 220 pixels-per-inch, uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75% less reflection and 29% higher contrast than the previous generation, said the company.

The notebook features aluminum unibody design, flash storage, and plays four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 1080p HD video from internal storage.

The MacBook Pro features Intel Core i7 quad-core processors up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M discrete graphics, up to 16GB of faster 1600 MHz RAM and flash storage up to 768GB.

Two Thunderbolt and two USB 3.0 ports allow pro users to connect to multiple displays and high performance devices, and a new HDMI port is available for quick connectivity to HDTVs.

The new MacBook Pro also allows access to OS X Lion, iPhoto, iMovie, iTunes and other Apple apps including Aperture and Final Cut Pro X.
