Apple Releases 13 Inch Retina Display MacBook Pro, Brand New iMac And Mac Mini

Consistent with rumors touting a brand new 13 inch Retina Display MacBook Pro, Apple has today unveiled the new device. The new MacBook Pro ships with Intel dual-core Core i5 or i7 processors, SSD storage and 8GB of RAM. The new device is just 0.75 inches thick and is 20% thinner than the existing MacBook Pro. It weighs just over 3.5 pounds and offers an eye blistering Retina Display. The new models ships today starting from $1699 for the base model.

In addition, Apple has today updated the Mac mini with either dual or quad core Intel Ivy Bridge processors and a 500GB or 1TB HD hard drive, or solid state storage. The new Mac mini starts shipping today and is available in two consumer configurations (starting at $599) and a server configuration ($999), one of which offers quad core processors.

Apple also introduced the brand new next generation iMac, which is significantly thinner than the previous generation. The new iMac uses a technology called plasma deposition to create a thinner display with much less reflection and greater optics, with up to 45% thinner profile than before.  The new iMac also ditches the optical drive, but still comes in the 21.5 inch and 27 inch variations as before.  The new iMac also has a brand new stereo system.

The iMac also introduces the Apple Fusion Drive, which incorporates a 128GB SSD drive as well as a standard hard drive, but gives the appearance of a single unified drive to the user.  The new iMac starts at $1299 for the base model.
