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.

People who complain about disc drives never owned a mac

Most Mac Apps even Office 2013 are a lot smaller in size than Windows apps. Because Windows apps typically pack a ton of crap on each disc filled with stuff like Dotnet drivers, DLL files, and Windows installation garbage.
You go to the Mac App Store, most apps nowadays are like 200-400MB that takes less than 30mins to download with a slo DSL link.
I've downloaded and installed Steam games in under 1 hour.
Optical drives are dead or just carry an external drive or USB HD.
