Apple almost never disappoints when it announces new Macs and this time around it's no different. At its Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple revealed updated Macs across the board, but the show-stopper is the new, shinier, beefier and thinner MacBook Pro. Meet it and the new Macs after the jump.
MacBook Pro with Retina display
When the embers are warm, you know the product's will be hot. The rumors hit it right on the mark on redesigned MacBook Pro notebooks sporting thinner bodies, faster processors and Retina displays.
Apple's regular is still alive and kickin'. Both the 13.3 and 15.4-inch models got a decent spec-update. The 13.3-inch MBP comes standard with a 2.5GHz or 2.9GHz dual-core processor, 4GB or 8GB of RAM and a 500GB or 750GB hard drive. Prices start at $1,200. Sadly, screen resolution is still a muddy 1280x800 resolution (blech!)
The bread and butter of Apple's notebook family, the Air became a runaway success as soon as it became a machine capable of doing "real" work and putting in over four hours of battery life. Last updated a year ago when OS X Lion launched, the Air also sees updates to the latest Ivy Bridge processors.
