MacBook Pro Retina Display in India for Rs 1,52,900


At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2012 held in San Francisco, Apple announced the upgraded version of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks. The next generation MacBook Pro has a magnificent Retina Display. These notebooks are available in US right from the day they were announced. Now, the high resolution notebook has made its way to India. The base version starts at a price in India of Rs 1,52,900.

Shockingly, the US price is $2,199 which accounts to Rs 1,22,732 approximately. The price in India is a steep jump when compared to that of US. It is difficult to figure out if the hot selling notebook can achieve a similar response in India. The product is priced around Rs 30,000 more than what it is selling for in US. The reason behind this could be the decline in the Rupee when compared to the Dollar.

Coming to the specifications, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a 15.4 inch display with IPS technology. The display has a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels. The notebook is powered by a 2.3 GHz or 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 quad core processor. It has 256 GB or 512 GB flash memory and 8 GB internal memory. The device is equipped with a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor.

The specifications makes it clear that there are two different versions of the MacBook Pro. One is the 2.3 GHz variant and the other is the 2.6 GHz variant. The first one is available for Rs 1,52,900 while the second model is available for Rs 1,92,900.
