Britney's harder side was revealed at the show's auditions in Kansas at the weekend, where she starred on the panel alongside Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Louis Walsh, who had stepped in from the UK version of the show to replace Simon Cowell, who was taken ill with bronchitis.

The next-generation MacBook Pro: Retina display, USB 3.0, HDMI, ships today for $2199

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop,

MacBook Pro Retina display

You know that Retina display MacBook Pro we've been waiting for? Apple just announced it during its WWDC 2012 keynote. The next-generation MacBook Pro drops a bunch of legacy features in order to make room for future technology, as evidenced by the specs. First up, the Retina display. The next-generation MacBook Pro has a 15.4-inch 2800 x 1800 resolution display, the densest display to ship on any notebook to date. That makes it 220 ppi. The computer weighs less than 4.5 pounds, making it the lightest MacBook Pro ever.

Inside you get a quad-core Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16 GB RAM, and the NVIDIA Kepler GeForce GT 650m GPU. Gone is the HDD, replaced by flash storage similar to what you'd find in the MacBook Air, and you can go up to 768GB (although we'd bet that would be awfully expensive.)  The Ethernet port is also gone, but there are plenty of other ports to take its place: USB 3.0, HDMI, two ThunderBolt ports, SD card slot, and a MagSafe 2 connector. On the inside you get 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. A backlit keyboard and multi-touch trackpad round things out.

The next-generation MacBook Pro ships today, and starts at $2199 for a unit that packs in a 2.3 GHz quad-core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage. Buy it direct from the Apple Store online.
