When Apple creates devices, it strives to achieve two main things that don’t necessarily go hand in hand - speed and thinness (perhaps with the exception of the new iPad). And so Apple has now released the next-gen MacBook Pro, a speed demon packed in a very compact casing. In fact, it may not be such a stretch as to compare the new Pro to the Air, seeing as Apple chose to remove the optical drive. On the other hand, consumers are treated with the excellent Retina display, a quad-core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce 650M GPU. The rest is Apple standard, with 768GB of flash storage, HDMI, SD card slot, dual microphones and Thunderbolt ports as well as USB 3.0, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and MagSafe 2. This MacBook is said to last you a good 7 hours.
The new MacBook is now on sale for - $2,199 for a quad-core i7 clocked at 2.3GHz, 8GB or RAM and 256GB of storage. Let’s get the show rock and rolling!
