Apple confirms First MacBook Pro With a Retina Display


The first MacBook Pro with a higher-resolution Retina display was announced by Apple ten years ago today.

Due to the removal of the Ethernet, FireWire, and CD/DVD drives from the previous generation, Apple debuted the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro at WWDC 2012. As a result, the laptop still included a headphone jack and two Thunderbolt 2 connections as well as two USB-A connectors as well as an HDMI port and SD card slot.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said in a news release that the new MacBook Pro “pushes the frontiers of performance and mobility like no other notebook.” New MacBook Pro has a stunning Retina display, all-flash architecture, and a radically thin and light design.”


Retina displays, as seen on the MacBook Pro with Retina display, have 220 pixels per inch of resolution. As the first MacBook Pro to incorporate flash storage, it allowed for a slimmer and lighter design. A quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, and a 768GB SSD were all included in the laptop’s hardware.

The starting price for the first Retina MacBook Pro in the United States was $2,199. It was revealed in October 2012 that Apple will offer a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display starting at $1,699. Both laptops have been added to Apple’s list of outdated items.
