Apple has announced its new lineup of Mac laptop computers, with improved design and beefier specs under the hood.
Connectivity-wise, the new Macbook Pro Retina features SD card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, thinner MagSafe 2, two Thunderbolt ports and, a surprise of the day, an HDMI output. It also comes with 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, Facetime HD, dual microphones, stereo speakers, glass trackpad and backlit keyboard.
With such specs, it is no surprise that Apple is saying that it will have a battery life of up to 7 hours of work and 30 days of standby time. It will feature pre-installed Apple OS X Lion.
Unfortunately for those with less than deep pockets, the base version with 2.3GHz Core i7 quad-core, 8GB of RAM memory and 256GB SSD storage will be priced at US $2,199.
