We managed to get our hands on a swanky new, totally tricked out, top of the line MacBook Pro with Retina Display (and, oh, 16GB of RAM) on Wednesday and have been putting it through the paces over the last 24 hours. The full review is coming soon, but we thought we'd tease you a bit with some mind-blowing benchmark results...
We know you all want a MacBook Pro with Retina display of your very own. After all, it's the first truly new laptop from Apple in years, and from what we've seen, it's drop-dead gorgeous. But for those in the market for a new portable Mac, there might be better ways to spend a couple thousand bucks. We've considered the positives, negatives, and unknowns regarding the latest and potentially greatest MacBook to date, so if you're thinking about dropping a serious chunk of change in the near future, keep all of this in mind!
Well, that was fast -- mere hours after we reported Tuesday night that iFixit was busy dismantling a mid-2012 MacBook Air, and the doctors already have a new patient on the table: The new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
After Monday's announcement-packed keynote, WWDC attendees stumbled back into the third-floor lobby of Moscone West to encounter a couple of the brand-new, Retina Display-sporting MacBook Pros rotating magestically in glass cylinders. I stood on my tip-toes and took this video with my iPhone 4S.

By this time next week, we’ll already know what Apple has up its sleeve for the WWDC 2012 keynote -- but in the meantime, all we have to go on are leaks such as the one pictured here, which is reportedly the spec label from a new 13-inch MacBook Pro.
As we get closer to WWDC we can expect the rumor mill to heat up and it's already started. Bigger iPhone, smaller iPad is the refrain you're going to hear until they don't and then we'll move on to something else. Pocket sized Steve Jobs! The Apple iApple digital fruit! Instead of that nonsense, let's take a look at some real news from the week past.
Still rocking grandfathered unlimited data through Verizon Wireless? Better enjoy it while it lasts, because the carrier plans to drive a stake through its heart when Big Red makes the switch to family data plans this summer. Should make good fodder for Sprint’s future marketing, since they continue to be the only U.S. carrier offering truly unlimited data plans.
