"With a gorgeous retina display, all flash architecture and a radically thin and light design, the new MacBook Pro is the most advanced Mac we have ever built," said Cook.

At 220 pixels-per-inch, the retina display's pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp.

The retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 per cent less reflection and 29 per cent higher contrast than the previous generation.
