Apple introduced two MacBook Pro lines at WWDC; one that uses the familiar unibody design the laptop is known for, and a second that includes a retina display, solid state data storage, dual Thunderbolt ports, but no optical drive.

MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) Software Update 1.0 is available for compatible Macs via the Software Update application or as a downloadable installer at the Apple Support website.

Are you going to have a hands on review of the new MacBook Pro models? I’d love to see a side by side comparison of the two, benchmarks, boot times, how the screen looks with productivity apps, photo/video editing apps, games etc. I’m trying to decide which one to go with, a base retina or a tricked out non retina version.


It’s a tad disturbing that Apple has already got a bug fix released…

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that Apple releases fixes ASAP (most of the time) but I wonder if Apple isn’t pushing the envelope just a bit.
