That said, there are still some exciting (sort of) new things coming out of Cupertino. Here’s a rundown of new products, and some lessons we learned from this week’s announcements:
1. Apple just announced the best computer it has ever made.
The new 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the flagship of Apple’s product line, boasts a gorgeous screen with a mind-blowing 2,880-by-1,800 pixel count.
