The above video is my unboxing of the latest mid-2012 MacBook Pro equipped with a Retina Display. Announced at this year’s World Wide Developers Conference, the new MacBook Pro sports a complete redesign and overhaul – offering an incredibly thin form factor.

Aside from looking phenomenal, Apple’s latest notebook and netbook hybrid is a powerhouse when it comes to performance. With Intel’s latest TurboBoost-capable Ivy Bridge processors, up to 16GB of SDRAM and a potential of 768GB of the fastest flash storage available, the Retina MacBook Pro can easily accomplish simple tasks such as video playback, as well as the more complex – such as hardware-intensive video editing.

  • 2.3GHz up to 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Ivy Bridge i7 processor with TurboBoost technology (3.3GHz-3.7GHz)
  • 8GB up to 16GB of 600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
