This week, we got our hands on a ton of hot tech, including the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, the Droid RAZR Maxx HD from Motorola, and a host of Windows 8 tablets and notebooks from Toshiba, HP and ASUS.

Still, this premium cousin to the regular 13-inch MacBook Pro (the No. 1 seller in the U.S.) costs more than the Ultrabook competition and $500 more than the 13-inch Air.
