Apple's new MacBook Pro with Retina display is a beauty to be behold, if you can afford one, but it's not for everyone. With a weight of 4.46 pounds and a large 15-inch screen, it's not exactly portable. It's believed that Apple will sell a smaller 13-inch Retina MBP later this year.

Forget iPad 3's with Retina Displays, Apple might give its MacBook Pro line-up a real "pro" upgrade with screen resolutions that could stretch 2,880x1,800 pixels.
