The most notable addition to Apple’s most popular MacBook model is the Retina display. This display has been featured on other Apple products, and you may have head about it before, but this is the first time it’s been added to the 13-inch MBP. So what exactly does a “Retina” display entail? Basically, it’s a display that has enough pixel density that your eyes are unable to notice pixelation at a typical viewing distance. Translation: it looks real purdy.
In addition to the new display, Apple has slimmed down the MBP in a number of ways. The new models are 1/5th thinner than the last version, and they also weigh less than any model before – tipping the scales at just 3.5 pounds.
