The MacBook Pro with Retina display features a high-resolution display, a 0.71″ thin design, powerful graphics, and up to nine hours of battery life, delivering high performance in a portable design. Apple also lowered the starting price of the non-Retina 13″ MacBook Pro.

People like their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminium unibody design, beautiful Retina display, all day battery life and deep integration with OS X,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The MacBook Pro with Retina display gets even better with faster processors, more memory, more affordable configurations and a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite.
