[Unboxing] MacBook Pro Retina Display 2012

July 31, 2012  |  Apple, My New Toys, New Products

Earlier last week, I became the proud mother of a brand new MacBook Pro Retina Display, on July 23rd 2012 to be exact.  I couldn’t describe the happiness I felt at the prospect of holding my own customized child (yes I refer to my gadgets as children I’m weird like that).  For those of you following me on Instagram and Twitter you got to deal with the whole conception process (the act of me placing the order on June 22nd) all the way until the credit card was deducted, the packages were shipped, the moment they arrived at my DHL Borderlinx box, all the way to the moment it got delivered to my home! It took 1 whole month but it was well worth the wait.

I have had a week to play around with it and I am basically in love, everything looks crystal clear on it and it’s super fast! Super thin and light as well it doesn’t really feel as heavy as my MacBook Pro 17″ but at the same time not as light as my MacBook Air 11″.  In an upcoming post I will write about what I fell in love with in regards to the device but as for the moment I would like to share with you my unboxing pictures.

The left side featuring the new MagSafe 2 Port, 2 Thunderbolt connections, 1 USB 3.0 connection, and Headphone/Mic jack.

The right side featuring another USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and the SD Card slot.

New Models have the “MacBook Pro” written on the bottom of the laptop instead of on the screen bezel

Inside the box: an extended cord, along with the power block, the “Welcome” Pamphlets/User guides.

The new MagSafe 2 Connector, it’s smaller than the previous ones.

The side profile ;)

The beautiful keyboard and trackpad!

I’m a proud new mommy! I can’t help it! I ended up naming my new child “Dracarys” which means “Dragon Fire” it is the spell that Daenerys Targaren (Khaleesi) from “Game of Thrones” uses to tell her dragons to breathe fire.  And I thought it would be perfect because well that beast is powerful!  Plus I like the way it rolls of your tongue.
