Apple announced the new 15.4″ MacBook Pro with Retina display at its developer conference, WWDC, in June.  Great news is that the machine is now available in Kenya courtesy of the Apple premium resellers.

The MacBook pro packs a Retina display with a 2880 x 1800 resolution (or 220ppi), and is just 0.71-inch thin and weighs only 2.02Kg. The machine’s high resolution is not the only plus but it also promises a higher contrast ratios, better viewing angles and reduced glare compared to other displays among its peers.

Some other specs are;

  • Retina display with 2880×1800 resolution
  • 2.3GHz or 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7

The bad news is that the machine is going to cost you $600 (Ksh 48,000) more in Kenya as it goes for &2,778 (Ksh 231,000) as opposed to the US pricing which starts at $2,199 (Ksh 183,000).
