Apple's MacBook Pro is the first of its kind to offer a high-resolution Retina Display. That's 2880 x 1800 pixels wedged into a 15.4-inch display. By way of comparison, the non-Retina Display MacBook Pro offers a screen resolution of 1440 x 900. But while you'll get plenty of pixels, you won't get a lot of storage (which has led to some griping among professional video editors). The MacBook Pro is offered with 256GB of SSD storage for $2,199. It's upgradeable to 512GB and a faster processor for $2,799.
The MacBook Pro features a Core i7 2.3GHZ quad-core processor with 8GB of RAM, two Thunderbolt ports, two USB 3.0 ports and a seven hour battery. It weighs in at 4.46lbs and is just under an inch thick at .71-inches. Despite the eye-popping price, this notebook is missing a few things: there's no optical drive and no Ethernet and FireWire ports.
