The 10 Best Laptops of 2012
Best Multimedia Notebook: MacBook Pro with Retina Display (15-inch) ($2,199)
It would probably be enough for Apple to cram discrete Nvidia graphics, a quad-core processor and a 256GB SSD into a notebook that weighs 4.5 pounds and is 0.7 inches thick. But no, the company also added a breathtaking 15.4-inch 2880 x 1880-pixel Retina display, which puts all other notebooks to shame. This is way better than your HDTV. We also like that Apple finally added USB 3.0 and HDMI ports.
