As you might expect, Apple took advantage of its keynote to unveil new models of MacBook Air and Pro. Among the main features: SSD, 2 Ghz processors, Intel 4000 and Retina screens for Pro models.
On the hardware side, Apple has only looked at its laptops, with a refreshed range both on the side of the powerful MacBook Pro and the light MacBook Air. Marketing boss Phil Schiller presented "the best computer Apple has ever made", the "MacBook Pro with Retina display" in very high definition. This type of screen was launched with the iPhone 4 in June 2010, then, in an intermediate size, with the latest model of the iPad.
This new MacBook Pro, the first price of which is $ 2,199, offers a MacBook Air-like appearance, only 1.8 cm thick, but still weighing more than 2 kg.
For its part, the entry-level model of the MacBook Air sees its price drop to 999 dollars.
“They got the MacBook Air”, commented on the outcome of the presentation, a developer from New York to attend this conference, Ariel Michaeli. But "this price is given", he rejoiced all the same.
These devices, like all Apple desktop computers, will benefit from the new Mountain Lion operating system, released in February, which was originally expected late this summer.
All the specifications and prices of the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
We discuss it on the forum.
