Apple WWDC: New Macbook Pro and Macbook Air

It seems like once more, the rumors about Apple’s Macbook Pro proved to be true today at the WWDC Keynote 2012. The next-gen 15.4-inch Macbook Pro comes with USB 3.0, a HDMI port, 3.5-mm headphone jack, SD card slot, two Thunderbolt sockets and Retina display. Unfortunately for some, the new Macbook Pro doesn’t come with an optical drive anymore, though it probably wasn’t needed anyway, as people migrate to USB drives and Cloud storage.

The new Macbook Pro also comes with a MagSafe 2 power connector and there are 3 versions: The 13-inch starting from $1,199, 15-inch starting from $1,799 and the retina-display 17-inch, which starts from $2,199. It seems like the 17-inch Macbook Pro has been discontinued though, which already stirred complaints from its fans.

Apple has also announced a revamped Macbook Air today at the WWDC Keynote 2012 and it comes with some impressive features. The all-new Macbook Air is now powered by Ivy Bridge processors, up to 2Ghz Core i7, which can go up to 3.2Ghz through Turbo Boost.

The 11-inch version comes with the same 1,366×768 resolution, while the 13-inch one went up to 1,440×900. Both versions feature 720p HD FaceTime camera, two USB 3.0 ports and can house up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage capacity.

The 11-inch Macbook Air starts from $999, while the 13-inch version from $1,199 and they are both available for shipping.
