WWDC 2012 and Retina Macbook Pro

This week is Apple’s Developer conference and in the opening speech yesterday as well as the Software announcements was the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, this could be excellent news for Photographers.

Not so sure about them dropping the Firewire Ports but they did say a FW to ThunderPort Adapter will be available so Photographers like me with lots of external FW drives will not feel left out.

I have to admit I am tempted as my MacBook Pro is now four years old, if I upgrade to a Nikon D800 this year then the new MacBook Pro will be an essential upgrade.  Until then I can wait.  I’ll be interested in how shiny the new display is as well as the Colour Gamut.

It would be nice to be able to do colour critical work on a laptop, but i’ll not hold by breath.
