Apple has announced the latest addition to its MacBook lineup – the MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina display, the smaller-screen version of the MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina display released earlier this year.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro features a dramatically thinner body than the previous model. Just 1.9cm deep and weighing only 1.62kg, it is the lightest and most portable high-performance laptop Apple has yet made.
The sleeker design has been made possible by the MacBook Pro’s compact engineering, which features flash storage starting at 128GB, 8GB of onboard memory, a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000, which support the millions of colours generated by the Retina display.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro’s Retina display resolution of 2560 by 1600 with 227 pixels per inch performs at a higher resolution than many HD televisions. This is one of the highest-resolution notebooks ever, second only to the MacBook Pro 15-inch, and it is available in Apple stores now.
13-inch MacBook Pro, from €1,749/£1,449 (2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, 8GB, 128GB flash)
