Apple is announcing new stuff at WWDC 2012 with MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros.
The most exciting and noteworthy is of course the Next Generation Macbook Pro, which features a Gorgeous Retina display with a 2880 x 1800 resolution (or 220ppi) which is in technical terms 4K resolution display, first time ever on a notebook.
NG Macbook Pro is amazingly thin at 0.71-inch and weighs 4.46 pounds. The display also has higher contrast ratios, better viewing angles and reduced glare compared to other laptop displays, and it’s updated all of its stock apps to take advantage of the new resolution.
