Apple Unveils New MacBook Pro with Retina Display
Joining today’s latest iPad announcements, Apple unveiled the latest iteration of its powerful MacBook Pro – nearly a year to the day since the notebook’s last major overhaul. Once again sporting the Cupertino outfit’s proprietary Retina Display – boasting 2560×1600 and 2880×1800 resolution on the 13″ and 15″ models, respectively – the design now features the latest-generation dual-core Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7 processors. While the 13″ model boasts improved speeds of up to 2.8GHz, shared L3 cache up to 4MB, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3GHz, the 15″ model’s fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processor is even more powerful with speeds of 2.6GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.8GHz. Both the 13″ and 15″ feature Intel Iris Graphics while the 15″ couples the technology with the new NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M – a graphics processor twice as powerful as the previous generation at 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Finally, the MacBook Pro offers improved battery life and faster flash storage than the models that dropped last fall.
