Put aside your Apple/PC rivalries and just repeat after me: 2880×1800 resolution on a 15.4-inch screen with amazing image quality from an IPS LCD panel. It’s a mouthful, but the words don’t do it justice.The almost unheard of amount of desktop real estate, despite being “only” a 15.4-inch screen, gives a whole new definition to multi-tasking. You can actually have viewable space in a browser or document open and work with other windows next to it. Even my 1920×1200 displays struggle with this, though admittedly my very data-intensive needs are likely outside the norm.But the Retina display isn’t the only part of the hardware that is impressive. This 15.4-inch chassis is just 0.71-inches thin and comprised entirely of aluminum, allowing for a svelte 4.46 lbs weight. Stuffed inside is a quad-core 3rd gen Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1GB switchable graphics. Thin, light, powerful, and up to 7 hours of battery life. You can hate Apple all you want, that is still an impressive set of specs.Of course, amazing specs and the all-important Apple logo come with a cost. This machine retails for an equally impressive $2,199 from Apple direct (and most of its partners). As we all know, discounts on hot Apple products are rare if they aren’t refurbished.Over time, we have seen small price drops on the “base” model MacBook Pro Retina 15.4 from B&H Photo Video. These have slowly added up and now we have a pretty hefty $250 discount off the Apple MSRP, which is nothing to sneeze at.
