The MacBook Air may have gotten first dibs on the 4th-generation Haswell Intel® Core™ processors back in June, but Apple hasn’t forgotten about the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Both the 13.3” and 15.4” models received updates on October 22 and are ready to take your Mac experience to the next level.
When Apple sent out invitations to the press for their keynote with the tagline “a lot to cover,” they were not kidding.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display models have also received hardware updates.
Johnny Ive, Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple, describes the new MacBook Pro with Retina display as “…the very best computer we’ve ever built.” Offering new levels of capability in terms of image resolution and the ability to connect bandwidth-hungry peripherals, it’s an ideal portable computer for photography and video production.

After months of speculation, Apple is bringing Intel Core i5 and i7 processors to its popular 15 and 17” MacBook Pros.
