My change over to the dark side of Apple was a gradual one. It started with an iPod years ago, which I upgraded to a Nano and this too has always worked perfectly and is still going strong (compared to other makes which I’d have to replace every 12 months when they died a sudden death). Then it...

ProFast and Sleek

Consexpensive

To achieve this tiny design, Apple made some sacrifices, both obvious and curious. Losing the optical drive was obvious, and a DVD-RW add-on seems reasonable to us. Less obvious was the omission of Ethernet. Though the device has the most advanced 802.11n Wi-Fi, we don't think this will be enough...

Product Information : Apple MacBook Pro With Retina display

Manufacturer's product description

MacBook Pro has a screen as vivid as your imagination. A screen where everything you see is remarkably vibrant, detailed, and sharp. What they created was the world's high-resolution notebook display - and their most jaw-dropping Retina display yet. When you pack over 5-million pixels into a 13.3-inch display, the results are positively stunning. The pixel density is so high, your eyes can't discern individual pixels. Images take on a high level of realism and text is pin sharp. The Retina display reduces glare while maintaining incredible color and quality. In fact, it has a 29-percent higher contrast ratio than a standard MacBook Pro display. Blacks are blacker. Whites are whiter. And everything in between is rich and vibrant. IPS technology gives you a wide, 178-degree view of everything on the screen, so you'll see the difference at practically any angle. And you're going to love what you see. A long battery life is impressive for any notebook. But for a high-performance notebook with an ultra-high-resolution display, top-of-the-line processors and graphics, and a superslim design, it's absolutely remarkable. The built-in battery gives you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles. Which means you can put your MacBook Pro to sleep, and it'll come back on instantly - after a day, a week, or even a month. You haven't heard it all until you've heard the speakers inside the MacBook Pro. For something so thin and light, the sound is huge. And with a wide dynamic range, optimal balance, and a crisp, expressive quality, these speakers might sound too good to be true. That's because they labored painstakingly over the design to maximize the quality of every decibel you hear. Dual built-in microphones are great for when you want to be heard. If you're making a FaceTime call, for example, the microphones reduce background noise from behind the notebook. And when you use dictation, they create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice - instead of the noise around you.
