Mac Pro (From `229,900)

Apple’s most powerful desktop computer got a big boost this year with the introduction of the new Mac Pro. About less than a quarter of the size of the previous version, the new Mac Pro is a bold step in a new direction in terms of both the size and design. The new Mac Pro with its circular machined aluminium enclosure will remind you of a well-designed trash can. That small body though packs a punch with some powerful internals like either a 3.7GHz quad-core processor or a 3.5GHz six-core processors which can be customised up to a massive 12 cores. These are supported by either 12GB or 16GB of memory, that can be expanded up to 64GB and Dual AMD FirePro D300/D500 graphic cards. The 256GB internal storage can be expanded up to 1TB, and the included four USB 3, six Thunderbolt 2, the Dual Gigabit Ethernet and the HDMI 1.4 UltraHD port connect you to up to three 4K displays or six Thunderbolt displays at the same time.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display, 13-inch (From `99,900)

The retina display finally comes to the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a beautiful 13.3-inch LED-backlit display with IPS technology which with a resolution of 2560x1600 packs 227 pixels per inch. For the cheapest model with a 2.4GHz of dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, you get 4GB of onboard memory, 128GB of internal flash storage and support for Intel Iris graphics. For the costlier versions which will put you back another `15,000-30,000, you can get your choice of 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz dual-core processors, supported by 8GB of onboard memory and 256GB or 512GB of internal flash storage. It also offers up to nine hours of battery life, and fits well into the Apple ecosystem.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display, 15-inch (From `149,900)

The 15-inch MacBook Pro which already had a Retina display gets a big internal upgrade. The 15.4-inch LED-backlit display packs a 2880x1800 resolution which gives you an very dense 220 pixels per inch. The cheapest model is powered by a 2.0GHz quad-cor Intel Core i7 processor and the costliest which will put you back by `199,900 packs a 2.3GHz quad-core i7 processor. Both the models get 8GB and 16GB of onboard memory respectively supported by 256GB or 512GB of internal flash storage. Overall a little bigger than the 13-incher, this 15-inched promises up to eight hours of battery life and it also comes with free iLife and iWork applications.
