Although the iPad Mini got the most attention from Apple’s press conference this week, the tech giant also introduced its all-new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.
The laptop features a stunning Retina display that packs more than 4 million pixels (nearly twice the number of pixels in an HD television) into its 13-inch display, all-flash storage in a new compact design, and much more.
It’s available with a 2.5 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, 8GB of memory and 128GB of flash storage starting at $1,699 USD; and with 256GB of flash storage starting at $1,999 USD. Other configure-to-order options include a faster dual-core Intel Core i7 processors and flash storage up to 768GB.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is available now at Apple retail stores and authorized resellers, and online at Apple.com.
