Apple’s all-new MacBook Pro with Retina display “is something that slots in between the two current devices and, we’d say, does so quite cleanly — though honestly we can’t imagine anyone wanting the O.G. Pro with an optical drive after touching this thing,” Tim Stevens reports for Engadget.
“It’s 0.71-inches thick, or roughly 25 percent thinner than the current generation Pros,” Stevens reports. “That’s just .03-inches thicker than the 13-inch MacBook Air, but it feels like quite a bit more. Where the Air is tapered, this has a constant thickness throughout. So, again, it doesn’t feel like an Air, but it’s a big improvement over the Pro.”
Stevens reports, “And that display? It’s gorgeous. If you’ve had the opportunity to compare the new iPad to the old iPad you’ll know the kind of leap forward we’re talking about here. It’s that much better, but it isn’t just resolution. Contrast seems greater and viewing angles too. We’ll need more time to do a thorough analysis but we can say with confidence this display doesn’t disappoint.”
