MacBook Pro Family

Now with a retina display—2880×1800 pixels, or 5MP if you prefer. At that resolution most apps presumably run at 2x (so 13px type on a web page will be shown at 26 real pixels height and should look fantastic). It also means that video editors can run clips at full resolution and still have screen space for all their pallets and toolbars.

Speaking of ridiculous numbers, the processor uses a 22-nm feature size. I can still remember when 1 µm was considered amazingly small. And 16 GB of ram in a portable computer is just crazy.

Mind you, this is a £300 premium on the existing 15″ MacBook Pro, which they are keeping around for people who want to play CDs or DVDs, or just prefer hard disks and a bit more heft in a laptop.
