Apple announces MacBook Pro with Retina Display

12 Jun 12

Apple has announced it will offer a 15-inch MacBook Pro equipped with the company’s high-resolution ‘Retina’ display, as part of a full refresh for the MacBook lineup.

The new model will offer a pixel density of 220 pixels per inch, equating to over 5 million pixels overall.

Of course, it won’t come cheap, the Retina Display model costing $600 more than the standard 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.3GHz processor ($3499 compared with $2899) and $1000 more with a 2.6GHz processor ($4499 compared with $3499).

The standard 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros have themselves been updated with faster processors from Intel, as have the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models. As one analyst predicted in April, the 17-inch MacBook Pro is thought to have been discontinued, having disappeared from the Apple online store.
