Apple WWDC brought Christmas in June!

No, I wasn’t at the Apple worldwide Developers Conference today in San Francisco. Physically, at least. But my mind and heart were. I was following like a deranged stalker all updates from journalists at the venue. I witnessed the Keynote, thanks to liveblogs.

And just I expected, Apple announced a lot of beauty, power and features to their babies.

The Macbook Air got an update - Ivy Bridge processors, up to 2GHz dual-core i7, up to 8GB of 1600MHz memory – 60% faster graphics – and, 512GB of flash storage with read speed of 500MBPS. FaceTime HD camera at 720p. And the USB: 3.0!

Pricing is $999 and goes up to $1099 if you want the faster chip.


Announced next is the Macbook Pro line. Dig this: MAcbook Pro with Retina Display.

  • Ivy Bridge chips, up to 2.7GHz quad-core i7′s. Turbo boost to 3.7GHz
  • 8GB of 1600MHz memory and, again, 60% faster integrated graphics.
  • Kepler GeForce GT 650M, up to 1GB of memory. That, too, is 60% faster than the old 15-inch model
  • 0.71-inches thin- 1/4 thinner than the current Pro
  • 4.46 pounds
  • 2880 x 1800, 220 pixels per inch, 5.1 million pixels– world’s highest-resolution notebook display!
  • Up to 16GB RAM
  • Seven hours of battery life, with up to 30 days of standby time
  • SD, HDMI and USB 3.0
  • (A thinner) MagSafe 2, Thunderbolt, USB 3
  • Dual mics
  • Asymmetric fan – said to be radically more quiet

Too much goodness! Final Cut Pro can manage up to nine streams of video simultaneously!

Clearer than daylight!

4.46 pounds. The lightest Pro ever.

My 15-in MBP suddenly became “old”. Poor, baby.

Of course, this beautiful hardware comes with a software as powerful. Mountain Lion full specs here.

More goodies were unveiled, but I need to go and wipe off my drool first. Will continue later.
