On October 23, 2012 Apple announced the new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display. Similar to its larger cousin, the 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display introduced earlier in 2012, this new 13" MacBook Pro features a high resolution LED-backlit display. An integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor takes full advantage of the 2560-by-1600 resolution at 227 pixels per inch. The MBP Retina 13" has two USB 3 ports, an SDXC card slot, an HDMI port, and two ThunderBolt ports. It does not have Ethernet or Firewire ports, although adapters are available. The MagSafe Port has also been replaced with the MagSafe 2 port allowing for a thinner case design.
