Tech Industry: Unboxing the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro

1:47 /

Dan Ackerman takes a look inside the boxes of the brand-new 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here with a couple of freshly wrapped packages from Apple. Inside these bags I have the new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro. These are the laptops with the Retina Displays. They've kind of shunted the old non-Retina Display MacBooks off into the retirement home, so we're just gonna call these the MacBook Pro now. We don't have to use Retina Display every time. So inside the bag I've got the 13-inch box and I've got the 15-inch box, and we're gonna unbox them by lifting off the top, typical Apple style here, not much new in the packaging. They've still got inside the laptop wrapped in plastic. Packed neatly behind that is the power supply and the extension cord for that and yes, a little with the documentation they still have in these. This is only a lot less than they used to be especially when they used to give you a CD with the operating system monitor or even the USB key. Now it's just a couple of pieces of paper. So all you need to get started is you break the seal in your plastic, pull it out and you are ready to set up your brand-new 13-inch MacBook Pro, I guess, as soon as you take off this little piece of tissue paper right there. And of course the same thing goes for the 15-inch version, box is a little bit bigger but same style that Apple's had for several years now. Here's our 15-inch MacBook. Again we break the seal and here's that all ready to get set up, same design as last year. New components inside and of course you got your power cable and your paperwork right there. That is our unboxing of the 15-inch and 13-inch Apple MacBook Pros.
