In Pictures: First Look, Apple’s “beautiful” new MacBook lineup

Apple rolled out major upgrades for both of its main notebooks today at WWDC. Here’s a quick look at the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

  • The next generation of MacBooks New screens, new processors, new browsers – there’s a lot of new stuff in the updated MacBook lineup, which was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference today in San Francisco.

  • Retina display Apple brought its much-ballyhooed Retina display technology from the iPad to the MacBook Pro, touting a screen resolution of 2880x1800 on the 15.4-inch device. Senior Vice President Phil Schiller said “it’s the most beautiful computer we have ever made.

  • Ivy Bridge Even though the company’s MacBook Pro got significantly sleeker in its latest version, the ultra-thin MacBook Air saw upgrades of its own – including latest-generation Intel Ivy Bridge processors.

  • Safari Apple’s in-house browser now integrates closely with the company’s iCloud service, and the latest version uses a Chrome-style unified search box.

  • Mountain Lion The next generation of OS X was not announced at WWDC. However, Apple did say that Mountain Lion would be ready in a month, and noted that everyone who buys a Mac between now and then will get the upgrade for free.

  • Hardware reinforcements for earlier MacBook Pros Apple gave some love to the current-generation MacBook Pro as well, upgrading them with Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 processors and newer Nvidia GeForce GT650M graphics cards.
