You read it first at our iOS 6 blog about Apple introducing a MacBook with Retina display and update for all Macs. Well the New Generation MacBook Pro was Introduced to the world by Phil Schiller and you can bet it has already changed the game. The new MacBook Pro is the best computer Apple has ever Built. This could be made possible only if they were willing to let go of legacy technologies which these days are branded as cutting edge by other companies and sold to the consumer. If you did not notice how advanced Apple was when compared to other computer manufacturers well then one look at the new MacBook Pro will suffice to convince you.
The new MacBook Pro features a 15.4 inch Retina display the same kind of display you will find on an iPhone 4 or the third generation iPad. If you have experienced the clarity of this display then check this out, with a 2880×1880 resolution the new MacBook has 3 million more pixels than an HDTV! Besides as the display is directly integrated in to the aluminum unibody it reduces weight by eliminating need of a cover glass.
It features the very best Quad core Ivy Bridge processors with up to 2.8 GHz and with turbo boost that can be bumped up to 3.7 GHz. You have available for you memory up to 16 GB at 1600 MHz and a flash storage of up to 768 GB. The flash storage architecture is what allows the MacBook to be 4 times faster and yet consume less space and energy. You can get up to 7 hours of usage time and 30 days of standby time on the new MacBook Pro.
The Pro weighs at 4.46lbs and is 0.71 inches thin which is 25% thinner than the old MacBook Pro. With all that power and so little space Apple has designed a thermal system that keeps your MacBook cool and yet you won’t hear a thing. The blades on the fans integrated in to the MacBook Pro are asymmetrical as opposed to the fans used on any other notebook. This keeps your MacBook cool and makes no sound at all. The components inside are sculpted in a way to allow maximum air flow through them.
As for the Input output devices the MacBook Pro has 2 thunder bolt and 2 USB 3.0 Ports. It also has the usual MagSafe power port, SD slot and an HDMI port. Apple will soon offer a firewire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet to thunderbolt adapters. It also features the best stereo speakers and dual microphones found on any notebook.
At $2199 you can get the base model which has the retina display, 2.3GHz ivy bridge i7 processor, 8GB of Ram, 256 GB of Flash storage and NVidia GeForce GT 650M 1 GB graphics card.
We all have been through times where the hardware always had to play catch up to the software. Apple ushers in a new era where the software needs to be upgraded to match and take advantage of the features the Hardware has to offer. For the Retina display Apple will ship a special build of Mountain Lion with HiDPI support and updated versions of mail, Safari and iPhoto. Final Cut Pro and Aperture will also receive updates. Apple will work with Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk AutoCAD, Diablo 3 and many other developers to update their Apps to work with the retina display.
Safari is a great browser no doubt however when it comes to market share many users choose Google Chrome Browser to browse the internet. Many users would love the idea of using Google chrome on their iOS devices. Well it seems like the wish might just come true based on reports of iOS 6 concepts.
The Business Insider has reported that Google is working on a version of its popular chrome browser to bring it to iOS devices. It goes on to say that Apple may already be reviewing the app and if things go well you could soon download Google Chrome from the app store.
The way things are now the Safari browser uses Google search engines to provide results for a keyword. Google is obliged to split ad revenue shares for search performed through the safari browser. This translates in to Google paying Apple around $ 1 Billion per year. If the Google chrome is made available on iOS 6 concepts it could lead to a substantial financial gain for Google not to mention an increase in its user base.
The challenge however that Google will face is that Apple iOS 6 concepts like its predecessors would not make it easy to use third party browsers like dolphin, Opera or Chrome. When you click a link on you iOS device it will open it using the safari browser since that is how it is meant to be. If you wish to use a different browser you have to take additional steps which would lead to inconvenience and thus discourage the user. That is the reason why most users prefer to use the Safari browser on their iOS devices.
Apple has put the MacBook Pro on a diet and the results will soon be available for all to see along with iOS 6 concepts. Bloomberg has confirmed that the new generation of MacBook Pro will be thinner and will feature the breath taking Retina Display.
The new models are expected to be unveiled to collective gasps at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 11 as well as new iOS 6 concepts. The MacBook Pro will go the MacBook air way not only in terms of dimensions but will also feature flash memory. Flash memory drastically reduces startup times and boosts battery life.
The reports are reliable and not just rumors because they are part of controlled leaks that Apple is known for before major product launches. People who did not wish to be named due to obvious reasons as the plans haven’t been made public yet. They have however confirmed that the MacBook Pro will feature the high definition Retina display which is found on the new iPhone and iPad.
This will be the most significant update to the MacBook Pro which was last updated in October 2011 however has yet to witness a major redesign since 2008. Apple will also announce the launch date for the OS X Mountain Lion that was previewed by Apple this year.
