Apple MD101HN/A

13.3 Inch, Intel's Core i5 2.5 GHz Processor, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard dive Capacity, Kensington Lock Slot

A groundbreaking Retina display. A new force-sensing trackpad. All-flash architecture. Powerful dual-core and quad-core Intel processors. Together, these features take the notebook to a new level of performance. And they will do the same for you in everything you create.

The pixel density is so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels. Images take on a new level of realism. A spectacular 2560-by-1600 resolution on the 13-inch MacBook Pro is very impressive.

The 13.3-inch MacBook Air lasts up to 9 hours between charges and the 13-inch model lasts up to an incredible 12 hours. So from your morning coffee till your evening commute, you can work unplugged. When it’s time to kick back and relax, you can get up to 10 hours of iTunes film playback on the 11-inch model and up to 12 hours on the 13-inch model. And with up to 30 days of standby time, you can go away for weeks and pick up where you left off

Apple MLH12HN/A (Space Grey)

The new MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas. And it’s ready for yours.
