Until now, Retina Display has only been available on the iPhone and iPad.

According to 9To5Mac, Apple has also decided to nix the optical disc drive from the new 15-inch MacBook Pro to give it an ultra-thin design. What’s more, the redesigned laptop will also include a significantly faster USB 3 drive.
