There was some speculation about changes or improvements that would be implemented in the new MacBook 2012 line, but with the official announcement during WWDC 2012 it has been revealed that the Pro and Air 2012 models will retain the same design as the versions of 2011, but has included a new variant of the Macbook Pro with retina screen and has been updated to modern times by using Ivy Bridge processors and NVIDIA 28nm based video card.
Elaborating on its specifications, the most noticeable changes of the 13 “and 15″ MacBook Air 2012 models mainly lie in the choice of firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz Core (2.6GHz with Turbo Boost) and even a i7 @ 2Ghz (3.2 GHz with Turbo Boost), from 4GB to 8GB of RAM, and storage media has been replaced by SSD HDD ranging from 64GB to 512GB’s.
In connectivity options the most noticeable change is the adoption of two USB 3.0 ports. The rest includes the Thunderbolt port that remains the same. Additionally, it has 720p camera, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, and a more powerful battery that should provide 5 to 7 hours of autonomy.
Philip Schiller, Senior VP of Marketing at Apple Globl says:
“Today we have updated the full line of MacBooks with faster processors, graphics, memory, flash storage and USB 3.0 connectivity,”
“We made the best even better portable family and we believe that users will love the performance gains in both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro”
The price for the 11 ” model is U.S. $ 1.099 and $ 1.499 USD goes up to the 15″ model.
In the 2012 MacBook Pro models we can also find that its processors are updated versions Ivy Bridge, in the case of the 13 “model it can be a Dualemail@example.comGhz i5 (3.1GHz with Turbo Boost) or i7 Dual-Core@2.9Ghz (3.6Ghz with Turbo Boost) and 15 ” model Core i7 Dualfirstname.lastname@example.orgGhz (3.7GHz with Turbo Boost), the choice of 4GB or 8GB of RAM remain, and now uses the GeForce 650M GT and in storage option you can choose a 1TB HDD or 512GB SSD.
At this point it seems more of the same, but the surprise Apple gave during WWDC 2012 was nothing less than a MacBook Pro model for ‘professionals’ that can be described as a combination of the basic model of the MacBook Pro with a MacBook Air resulting in a thickness of 1.8cm and a weight of 2kg, and also is equipped with a retina screen with a resolution of 2800 × 1800 pixels, which, according to Apple, “the black is more black, the white is whiter and the other colors are much brighter. ”
The design is something never seen before. A perfect fusion between the Macbook Pro and design of the MacBook Air: 1.8 cm thin and weighing only 2lbs. With this it gets rid of the SuperDrive, but has SD card reader, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt. Paradoxically, the battery life remains at 7 o’ hours at full capacity.
Its specifications include a Quademail@example.comGhz i7 option (3.3GHz with Turbo Boost) or i7 Quadfirstname.lastname@example.orgGhz (3.7GHz with Turbo Boost), can be configured with 8GB and 16GB, 256GB and offers 768GB SSD, while for graphics it counts on a GeForce GT 650M.
Of course the price will be a problem, but if we’re completely seduced by this MacBook and have problems with it can we can expect to pay around $ 2.849 (approximately) USD for the basic model or even $ 3.599 (approx) for the full model.
