5:27 /

Apple's Phil Schiller refreshes the company's notebook line of computers with Retina Display, including a 13-inch for $1,299 and a 15-inch for $1,999. Both laptops ship today.

-Today, we're happy to now turn our attention to MacBook Pro. As you know, the MacBook Pro is the first personal computer with a retina display, a display with the pixel so small that at normal working distance your eye can't discern them and images are gorgeous. And now, we've brought out both the 13-inch and a 15-inch retina display MacBook Pro and both are having major updates today. First, let's start with a 13-inch MacBook Pro. It is an incredible machine and now it is even lighter under 3-1/2 pounds, just 3.46 pounds and the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is thinner as well, just 7.1 inches thin. It's beautiful and thin, and light; and it's incredibly fast too. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is powered by an Intel Haswell chip. This is the fourth generation dual-core chip and that chip includes Intel Iris graphics, integrated graphics that are even faster. In fact, they're up to 90% faster than the previous generation. Faster performance. Faster graphics. And it gets better battery life too. Now, up to 9 hours of battery life for all the things you love to do. Reading your mail, surfing the web, doing productivity, and even watching movies that you've downloaded from iTunes. -So, if you're a fan of the Black Knight as I am, you can watch the entire Trilogy on one charge. Yes. If you're a closet batman fan, you don't have to hide it. It's faster too in terms of the Flash storage, PCIe Flash. That's 60% faster than the previous generation. Wi-Fi is faster too. It has 802.11ac that delivers up to 3 types of performance over 802.11n at similar distances and expansion is faster too. With the new Thunderbolt 2, it's up to twice as fast as the previous generation Thunderbolt. And all this performance and battery life comes in a brand new MacBook Pro that's running Mavericks. Craig just told you all about the incredible features and performance of Mavericks in the world of hardware and software together to deliver an incredible notebook experience. The previous generation 13-inch MacBook Pro started at 1,499. We're really happy to tell you today that this new 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at just 1,299. That's for a configuration with a 13-inch retina display, 2.4 gigahertz, dual core i5, 4 gigs of memory, Iris graphics, 128 gigabyte of storage. And best of all, it starts shipping today. Next-- Yup. Thank you. Next, let's talk about the 15-inch MacBook Pro. This all-new generation MacBook Pro is powered by an Intel Crystalwell chip. This is the fourth generation quad-core processor. It includes Iris Pro graphics. Now, this is integrated graphic that for many task deliver the same performance as discrete graphics, but it does it at a quarter less power. Now, for those who do want discrete graphics, there are models with the new GeForce GT 750M and this is the graphics part with 2 gigs of video memory, twice as much as before. So again, faster processing, faster graphics, and longer battery life as well. Up to 8 hours of battery life. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro also includes the faster PCIE-based Flash. It also includes the faster 80211ac Wi-Fi. It also includes new Thunderbolt 2 storage. So, it's just better across the entire system. Of course, it comes with OS X Mavericks. And the previous generation 15-inch MacBook Pro started at 2,199. You're thinking, guess, what's coming. The new MacBook Pro now starts at just 1,999. That's where configuration with a 15-inch retina display, 2 gigahertz quad-core i7, 8 gigs of memory, Iris Pro graphics, and a quarter terabyte of Flash storage. And best of all, it's also shipping today. As you know, we work really hard to make all of our products environmentally friendly and these are both as well. Energy Star 6, EPEAT Gold, arsenic-free display, Mercury-free display, BFR free, PVC free, and highly recyclable with all that beautiful aluminum and glass. So, this is our notebook lineup. MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with a retina display, two display sizes on each; 11 inch and 13 on Air, 13 and 15 on MacBook Pro starting at just 999. So by far the best lineup we've ever had and incredible upgrades across the whole line and that's our news for MacBook today.
