Videoguys thoughts: At The Appple WWDC keynote earlier this week, Apple unvailed a new line up of Mac Book Pro. Unfortunately the much anticipated and rumored new Mac Pro did not materialize. While we are really dissapointed in Apple for that, the new Mac Pro is incredible. With a quad core i7 processor, Multiple Thunderbolt & USB3 ports, super high definition Retina Display powered by NVIDIA Graphics, this baby is now our hands down top choice for mobile video editing. Avid Media Composer & Symphony, Adobe CS6, or FCPX will run spectacularly on this puppy. With 384 CUDA cores on the GT650m GPU, you can expect outstanding Mercury Playback with Adobe CS6.

Apple has announced the next generation of its 15-inch MacBook Pro. The new machine packs a 15.4 inch "Retina display" which promises improved viewing angles, reduced glare, and a resolution of 2880 x 1800: four times greater than the previous MacBook Pro. Along with the impressive new display, the latest MacBook Pros come with new performance options, such as NVIDIA's Kepler GT650m graphics card, a refreshed Intel quad core i7 processor, up to 768GB of flash storage and up to 16GB of 1600 MHz RAM.
The addition of the Retina display makes the new MacBook Pro "the worldâ€™s highest resolution notebook display" according to Apple. It crams in over 5 million pixels and boasts a 178-degree wide viewing angle along with 75 percent less reflection and 29 percent higher contrast than the model it replaces.
There are a few notable connectivity changes ... some of which may not be to everyone's liking. Apple is pushing forward with Thunderbolt technology (there are two Thunderbolt ports on the new model) which means you'll need to buy an adapter if you plan to use an Ethernet cable. The FireWire 800 port is gone but there's a new HDMI port and two USB 3.0 ports along with the SDXC card slot. The optical drive has also been dropped. read more...
