Hardware: Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook Air
A new MacBook Pro with Retina Display was announced. Apple called a new generation of consumer notebook. It will have retina display and be super thin. It has a 15.4 inch diagonal display and is the lightest (less than 4.5 pounds), thinnest (0.71 inch) laptop Apple has ever made. The battery on this pixel eating machine is supposed to have 7 hours of life. There are two thunderbolt ports, firewire, and ethernet ports, in addition to the usual USB and headphone ports. The laptop will have Facetime and a HD camera. It starts shipping today.
The new MacBook Pro has a unibody lid with no separate glass cover. It will run quieter because of a new asymmetric arrangement of the fans.
The MacBook Air will be updated with Intel's Ivy Bridge, more powerful dual core processor with more memory and faster graphics. MacBook Air will have a USB 3 and a USB 2 port, Facetime in HD and a 1366x768 display. It is available now.
Safari, iMovie, iPhoto, Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Photoshop, AutoCAD, and other software are all updated to take advantage of the retina display in the new Apple laptop. Games like Diablo III are ready to take advantage of the retina display as well.
