15-inch next generation MacBook Pro will feature retina display

Apple has just made a huge update to their MacBook Pro line at WWDC 2012. The highlight is no doubt the new "next generation" 15-inch MacBook Pro that adds a killer retina display and ditches the optical drive to come in at an astounding .71 inches thin.

Just like the new MacBook Air line and new MacBook Pro line, the next generation 15" model will feature USB 2.0 and 3.0 support as well as Ivy Bridge processors. The new models will support up to 7 hours of battery life or 30 hours of standby time.

Two of the most amazing features of the new MacBook Pro line is the size and retina display. The 15" model will be receiving a brand new retina display that weighs in at four times as many pixels per inch than the existing models. The screen will come in at 15.4" across and have a resolution of 2880 x 1800.

Here is a summary of specs:

  • 15.4" retina display
  • 2.3 GHz quad-core i7
  • 8GB RAM
  • GeForce GT 650M 1GB
  • 256 GB flash storage
  • 7 hours of battery life (30 hours standby)
  • 0.71", 4.46 lbs.

They'll be priced starting at $2,199 for 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD and are available starting today.

It works instantly with every computer I plug it into, it has excellent battery life (in the range of 4-6 weeks) and it just works. It’s not laggy like a lot of wireless mice I’ve tried, and it doesn’t require the lengthy install some do also. The range is good and the nanoreceiver sits out of the way in my laptop all the time without having ever snagged or had a problem. None of these are the best thing about this mouse, however.
