One look and it’s clear: With over 4 million pixels on the 13″ model, the Retina display on MacBook Pro is an incredible engineering feat. Whether you’re retouching professional photography or editing a home movie in HD, all those pixels give your images a level of clarity you’ve never seen on any notebook – or any computer, for that matter. With colors so rich, vibrant and details so sharp, it’s a display worthy of the world’s most advanced notebook.

Packs over 4 million pixels into the stunning display (view larger).
The completely redesigned MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users. One of the highest resolutions for a notebook display with over 4 million pixels–2 million more than an HD television–the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has such a high pixel density that the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.
The MacBook Pro includes two high-speed Thunderbolt ports and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals. You’ll also get up to 7 hours of battery life while on the go.
This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (model MD212LL/A) features a 2.5 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 128 GB of flash storage, and 8 GB of installed RAM. Other features include ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an SDXC card slot, and an HDMI video output (see full specifications below).
Breakthrough Retina Display
At over 4 million pixels (227 pixels-per-inch), the Retina display’s pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2560-by-1600 resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. You’ll see fine details and textures in photos like never before, and even tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnail.
The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 percent less reflection and 28 percent higher contrast than the previous generation.
Flash Storage Architecture
With its entirely flash-based architecture, the MacBook Pro with Retina display makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive. And when combined with a precision engineered aluminum unibody design, the new MacBook Pro is the lightest MacBook Pro ever and nearly as thin as a MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro’s flash storage architecture also delivers improved reliability, instant-on responsiveness, and 30 days of standby time. It’s also up to four times faster than traditional notebook hard drives, enabling the MacBook Pro with Retina display to play four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 1080p HD video from internal storage.
High-speed Thunderbolt and USB 3 Ports
Two high-speed Thunderbolt ports allow the MacBook Pro to transfer data at lightning-fast speeds and connect displays like the Apple Thunderbolt Display, enabling you to turn this highly portable notebook into a highly versatile workstation. And with two USB 3 ports, you’ll be able to connect the latest USB 3 devices and access a pipeline that’s up to 10 times faster than USB 2.
Integrated HD FaceTime Webcam
You’ll be able to easily connect with friends, family, and business colleagues using the MacBook Pro’s HD 720p FaceTime camera, which is integrated into the thin bezel above the display and features three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera. And with Apple’s FaceTime application, you’re not limited to video chats with other Macs–you can now make video calls to iPhone and iPod touch users.
