Apple today launch its new MacBook Pro line.

Announced at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, the new MacBook Pros will boast third-generation Ivy Bridge processors and the Nvidia GeForce GT650M graphics. The line also includes both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 support

Unlike Apple's next-generation MacBook Pro, its 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros don't come with the Retina display. Instead, the 13-inch version boasts 1,280 x 800 resolution, and comes with the 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor. The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers a larger 1,440 x 900 display and starts out with a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 chip.

Other than that, the differences across Apple's MacBook Pro line aren't all that major. Both the 13- and 15-inch options come with 500GB of storage, and deliver seven hours of battery life. The cheapest 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros start with 4GB of RAM.

Apple's new MacBook Pro line starts at $1,199 for the 13-inch option, but can go much higher. The 15-inch MacBook Pro starts off at $1,799. Both devices are available now.
