Apple brings a retina display to the 13" MacBook Pro
Apple announced its
15" MacBook Pro with Retina display back in June
. Now, it’s brought “Retina Fever” to the 13” MacBook Pro.
The new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display is only .75" thin and weighs only 3.57 pounds, one pound lighter than the previous version. As expected, the display now has a resolution of 2560x1600, features 29% higher contrast ratio, a 75% reduction in glare, 178 degree viewing angle, and brightness of 300 nits.
The new 13' MacBook Pro with Retina Display keeps the same design aesthetic as the previous version, and includes USB 3.0 ports, FaceTime HD, backlit keyboard, and of course, Thunderbolt. In order to achieve the weight targets and thin frame, Apple ditched the internal optical drive.
The new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display comes with dual-core Intel i5 or i7 processors, 8GB standard RAM, and up to a 768GB SSD. Battery life is rated at “up to” 7 hours.
The 2.5GHz Core i5 version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage starts at $1,699 and is available today.

I'm tempted to do the same with the optical drive in my MBP and replace it with a second hard drive. I recently put 512GB SSD in it though and I'm pretty happy with how much space I have. We'll see.
In any case, it is a great modification you can make, way more useful for most than having an optical drive. Like you, I don't see the point of optical with USB flash drives, portable hard drives, and media not being on discs. Blu Ray is the only physical media I keep anymore, and that stays only in my living room. As soon as non-optical formats catche up with Blu-Ray in image quality (and that will take a while), then I'll ditch that too.
