Over at WDDC 2012 today, Apple announces the new MacBook Pro featuring a Retina display 2880 x 1880, all flash storage and quad-core processors in a thin and light design. So this is not the MacBook Air enclosure users are wanting but at least it is still thinner. The new MBP will measure 0.71 inches and weighing 4.46 pounds.
The Retina display features the latest Intel Core i7 quad-core processors up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M discrete graphics, up to 16GB of faster 1600 MHz RAM and flash storage up to 768GB. Two Thunderbolt and two USB 3.0 ports allow pro users to connect to multiple displays and high performance devices, and a new HDMI port offers quick connectivity to HDTVs. Also has Bluetooth 4.0, SD card slot, Facetime HD camera and more.
Also looks like there is no 17 inch upgrade with these new feature as it was not mentioned at all during WDDC 2012. Is Apple dropping this configuration?
The new MBP will start at $2199 and available in 5 weeks from now due to shipping delays.
