MacBook Pro with Retina Display
The highlight of new hardware release during today’s WWDC 2012 Keynote is the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display. As the name indicates, the all new 15-inch MacBook Pro features a stunning Retina display, all flash storage and quad-core processors in a radically thin and light design. Measuring a mere 1.8 cm (0.71 inches) and weighing only 2.02 kg (4.46 pounds), the completely redesigned MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users.
The new MacBook Pro Retina display is the world’s highest resolution notebook display with over 5 million pixels, 3 million more than an HD television. At 220 pixels-per-inch, the Retina display’s pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 percent less reflection and 29 percent higher contrast than the previous generation. 閱讀更多內容

新 iPad (第三代)

applewoods 位於澳洲的好友,今天收到了新 iPad (第三代),以下是他與我們分享的部份內容:

Apple 上週四令人興奮的發表會後,我立刻訂了一台 iPad。今天下午就從 TNT 收到了新機。

iPad (3 generation)

我沒有馬上就打開來使用,反而是替 iPad 背面貼上保護膜,至於正面,我通常不太會刮傷它,所以不太需要擔心。此外,正面不貼保護膜,觸控使用起來會更平順。

PenMoto is a magnetic ring that quickly retrieves and stores a pen making it possible to transition from writing to typing with the simple flick of a finger. The self-sizing ring and coupler adapt to nearly any pen or stylus, and is ideal for a Wacom pen.
