Hands on with the Retina MacBook Pro

Jason Snell, | June 12, 2012
The new, Retina-display-bearing MacBook Pro was in our offices Monday afternoon. While we'll start lab testing it and getting our review going, I got a chance to poke and prod it for a few hours. Here are some quick initial impressions.

That evolution is natural. But then there's the X factor, the introduction of a high-DPI display to the Mac for the first time. Developers will need to update their Mac apps to take advantage of Retina mode. And it'll be interesting to see how users—especially those in creative jobs such as working with photos and video—take advantage of all that screen resolution. Apple's been promising a high-resolution Mac interface for years now, but with the new MacBook Pro the future is finally here.

Stay tuned to Macworld for much more on the new MacBook Pro, including lab tests and a full review.
