There is no significant change in the appearance of the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. The shape, dimensions, weight and port configuration of the device are exactly the same as the previous model. It has two Thunderbolt 2 ports on the left, one USB 3.0 port, one headphone jack and one MagSafe 2 port; On the right you have a second USB 3.0 port, SDXC card slot and HDMI 1.4 port.
The screen resolution is 2.560×1600 pixels, but the area you have is 1.280×800 pixels. The reason for this is the double pixel effect used to create screen sharpness at the “retina” level. In addition to that, SwitchResX allows you to reach higher resolutions (up to 3.360×2.100) than OS X allows.
