We wanted to see how the Mid 2012 MacBook Pro stacked up against its new sibling, the MacBook Pro with Retina display. Other than the difference in size, the main differences between the machines are:

Hard disk drive vs. flash storage

8 GB vs. 16 GB maximum configurable RAM (from Apple, at least)

One Thunderbolt port vs. two

MagSafe vs. MagSafe 2

Kensington lock slot vs. flat aluminum

Oh yeah…and a standard or Hi-Res (on 15-inch model) LCD vs. a Retina display
