The New 15-inch MacBook Pro debuted at the Apple Special Event today and, on top of being a powerful new machine, it's also environmentally-friendly. On its environmental checklist are the following: Energy Star 6, EPEAT Gold, arsenic-free display glass, mercury-free display, BFR-free, PVC-free and it's also highly recyclable.
It's smaller cousin, the New 13-inch MacBook Pro also comes with an eye-melting Retina display and is even lighter and smaller than its predecessor at 3.46 pounds and 0.71 inches thin.
Inside the machine is a 4th-generation dual-core Intel Haswell chip with Iris Graphics that are said to be 90% faster than before. If you're in it for the long haul, the New 13-inch MacBook Pro will keep on chugging with up to 9 hours of battery life. And that's not to mention the faster PCIe-based flash and faster 802.11ac WiFi. And all of that can be yours, starting at $1299.
The best news is that these machines ship today. So grab your wallets and head out there.
