Apple Releases 'Every Dimension' TV Commercial for Retina MacBook Pro

Apple has just released a new TV ad for the Retina MacBook Pro, naturally focusing on the breakthrough Retina display included in the machine unveiled yesterday.
The radical new MacBook Pro with Retina display. Innovation in every dimension.

While Apple has had several high-profile Mac ad campaigns such as "Get a Mac" and "Switch" , the company only rarely advertises specific Mac products in television commercials. But with the revolutionary new form factor and Retina display in the new MacBook Pro, Apple is clearly interested in drawing widespread attention to the product.

Are new commercials for Apple products really worth a page 1 post? Isn't that just an advertisement, too?

Well, 99% of the articles will be about Apple; note the "macrumors" domain name. Anyone coming to the forum is looking for Apple info, so it's not like a soda ad placement or something. It's legitimate news in that it shows what Apple's focus is, relevant for both investors and consumers alike. I for one do not watch TV, so I don't see popular-culture ads. Furthermore, if these forums don't constantly post fresh articles, people will stop visiting.

Too expensive for my taste, but it's good Apple can flex its muscles a bit.

Does anyone have any idea as to why Apple only released one of these models instead up just updating the whole MacBook Pro lineup to this new form factor and retina display? Does it have anything to do with price discrimination in order to get the most money out of it or did they actually have a reason for only releasing it in one 15" model?

I think $1199 would be hard to reach with a Retina display.

Widespread attention for a $2200 Retina laptop...yeah...Apple will get widespread attention alright.

I don't particularly care about the cost. I care about pushing the industry forward, because sadly, most PC OEMs could care less about making better computers until Apple basically makes them look like total ****. Without OS X, we wouldn't have the polished performance of Windows 7 after the horrendous start of Windows Vista. Without iOS, we wouldn't have the diversity of Android and the forced rebirth of Windows Mobile into Windows Phone 7.

Competition is the only thing that causes companies to push the boundaries of what they can do.
