Model Detail - MacBook Pro 15 inch "Core i7" 2.6GHz Nvidia Retina (Mid 2012)

The model MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.6 15" Mid-2012 (Retina Display) is powered by a 22 nm Ivy Bridge 2.6GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (3720QM) running "quad cores" with a 6MB level 3 cache, 8GB of (non-upgradeable) onboard DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) SDRAM, 512GB Solid State "SSD" drive plus two graphics processors including a NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM as well as an Intel HD Graphics 4000 (shared memory) graphics processor, plus a 720p FaceTime HD webcam.

This 4.5 lb (2.02 kg) model is housed in an extra lean aluminum case, featuring a 220 ppi 2880x1800 15" "retina" high-res LED widescreen display. It also has a backlit keyboard, a "no button" glass multi-touch trackpad along with a claimed 7 hour battery. Similar to the Air models, Apple has phased out any internal optical drive.

Most sadly, these "Retina" models are virtually sealed and not upgradeable in any way.Ports and connectivity come via 3-stream AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 Thunderbolt ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 audio in/out port plus 1 SDXC card slot.
