During the 2012 World Wide Developer Conference keynote, Apple made several announcements. One of the highlights of the presentation was the introduction of a MacBook Pro configured with a retina-display, similar to the iPhone and iPad.
We wanted this MacBook Pro to have a screen as vivid as your imagination. A screen where everything you see is remarkably vibrant, detailed, and sharp. What we created was the world’s highest-resolution notebook display — and our most jaw-dropping Retina display yet.
This “next-generation” MacBook was mainly geared towards professional users. The “performance” page on the MacBook Pro site is dedicated to how this computer is for them. Even Final Cut Pro X is featured on the site showing that you can edit uncompressed video and view full 1080p video in the Viewer.
It was rumored that Apple was finally going to release a (major) update to the Mac Pro. While the Mac Pro did receive a quiet, minor update, it seems like Apple is making this MacBook Pro the “new Mac Pro”.
So with a retina display, all-flash storage, USB3 and HDMI ports, and more, the price of this MacBook Pro is $2,199 USD.
