Apple has launched a 13in Macbook Pro with Retina display, adding the high quality screen display to its smaller laptop product.
The Retina display features 2,560x1,600 resolution at 227 pixels per inch, packing in more than four million pixels. According to Apple, it uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle.
Apple launched a 15in Macbook Pro with Retina display in mid-June, and is now bringing the advanced screen technology to its smaller sibling.
The latest 13in Macbook Pro is the lightest, thinnest model yet, with a thickness of only 19mm and weighing in at 1.6kg. This is 20 percent thinner and around 400g lighter than the current 13in MacBook Pro, which weighs just over 2kg and measures 24mm.
Inside, the 13in Macbook Pro Retina features up to 768GB of flash storage, and either a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 processor or 2.9GHz Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and 8GB of 1600 MHz memory.
Around the outside, there are two Thunderbolt and two USB 3 ports, and a new HDMI port. For connectivity it offers 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4 support and the battery can last for up to seven hours wireless use, Apple said.
The 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display is available now. Costs start at £1,449 for the 2.5 GHz dual-core i5 model with 8GB of memory and 128GB of flash, and goes up to £1,699 for the 256GB version. Users can configure models with faster processors and storage up to 768GB.
The firm also unveiled an iPad Mini tablet device during the launch, which features a smaller 7.9in screen and will retail in the UK for £269 and go on sale from 2 November.
