Big news from last night’s Apple WWDC was the introduction to a brand new MacBook Pro, with a Retina display. Let’s have a look at this beautiful machine.
Apple’s Macbook have always been beautifully created with a complex mixture of innovative design and excellent performance. The new Retina Display MacBook Pro is the ephifany of this philosophy packing more computing power than ever before into a thinner form. Amazingly they did this without compromising the battery life. That must require some amazing engineering from the battery guys, to provide the ability to power this amazing new display within this tiny frame.
A 7-hour battery life is impressive for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, top-of-the-line processors and graphics, and a superslim design, it’s absolutely remarkable. The built-in 95-watt-hour battery gives you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles and up to 30 days of instant-on standby time. Which means you can put your MacBook Pro to sleep, and it’ll come back on instantly — after a day, a week, or even a month.
Because of the amazing new Retina Display, Apple have had to redesign most of their feature applications such as Aperture, Photoshop and FInal Cut Pro in order to cater to the new high resolution screen. This looks to be the best way to edit photos on the move.
Okay, so it looks amazing but what will it set you back? The entry level option will set you back $2199 and upwards from there, which is expensive there is no doubt, however you are getting some serious computing power and engineering for that price.
