Apple Announces Retina Display 13-inch MacBook Pro

Apple's event is still going on in San Francisco but the company has already busted out several new devices, kicking things off with the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display to match the 15-inch model it released earlier this year.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro features a more streamlined, slimmer design that measures in at 0.75-inches thick and weighs 3.57 lbs. That's almost a pound lighter than the old 13-inch MacBook Pro. Of course, it's got that all-important Retina display and the IPS panel packs a resolution of 2560x1600. That's the same resolution on today's 30-inch top monitors. Under the hood, there's Intel's dual-core Core i5 or Core i7 CPU, Intel HD Graphics 4000, 8GB of RAM, up to 768GB of flash, a 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a battery life of seven hours.

The laptop starts at $1699 and is shipping today. If the Retina display doesn't float your boat, you can always grab one of the older models, which will be selling at a discount.

    xkm1948Tom really should make a separate site dedicated for anything Apple---iTom News: Bring You Everything About apple.Why? Is the site not Tom's Hardware? Is this story not about hardware?

    You iHaters are as bad as the iSheep, and just as hypocritical. The fact is, whether you like it or not, is Apple is a very profitable company that makes products a lot of people enjoy and buy. But for some reason you think those people should not matter or have coverage of what they like.

    Can I build a decent gaming rig? yes
    Do i want to carry it around with me? no

    There is the right tool for everything. If you want a rig, you'd better build it. If you need a Rolls-Royce of laptops, why not get it?

    I would guess ~60% of the hardware cost is in that monitor, at a minimum 40%.
