At this morning’s press event, Apple unveiled a new 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display to complement the current 15in Retina MacBook Pro.

The 13in Retina MacBook Pro sports a display with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels, a huge 4x increase over the 1280 by 800 resolution on the non-Retina 13in MacBook Pro that was released last June.

Like the 15in Retina MacBook Pro, the new 13in Retina laptop has two Thunderbolt ports. Those ports are main way you connect the laptop to peripherals; it no longer has the Ethernet or FireWire 800 ports found on the regular 13in MacBook Pro.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Apple has the best-selling laptop in the United States. Of the Retina MacBook Pro, Apple Senior VP of Marketing Phil Schiller (pictured) said that “it is the best display housed in the best computer ever made”.
