New 13-inch MacBook Pro unveiled
For starters it weighs just 3.5 pounds. Apple’s lightest MacBook Pro ever. It is a full 1/5th thinner than the old model. It is just .75 thick! Now how did Apple achieve such thinness?
Well there is the FaceTime HD camera, dual mics, stereo speakers, standard 8GB of RAM; they use asymmetric li-ion batteries. And yes there is the Retina Display but no optical drive! Yup you heard that right!
The New MacBook Pro comes with Mountain Lion and iCloud naturally. It has up to 768GB of storage — SSD of course. Has a 2.5GHz CPU, 128GB of flash storage and the price tag is set as $1699. The best part is that it starts shipping today!
