An advanced all-flash architecture and the latest Intel dual-core processors and graphics make everything amazingly fast. It has OS X Mountain Lion, the latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. And the incredibly compact design measures just 0.75 inch thin and weighs only 3.57 pounds.
The MacBook Pro with 13.3-inch Retina display (view larger).
Packs over 4 million pixels into the stunning display (view larger).
The completely redesigned MacBook Pro sets a new standard in performance and portability for pro users. One of the highest resolutions for a notebook display with over 4 million pixels–2 million more than an HD television–the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display has such a high pixel density that the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance.
The MacBook Pro includes two high-speed Thunderbolt ports and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals. You’ll also get up to 7 hours of battery life while on the go.
This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (model MD213LL/A) features a 2.5 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 256 GB of flash storage, and 8 GB of installed RAM. Other features include ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an SDXC card slot, and an HDMI video output (see full specifications below).
At over 4 million pixels (227 pixels-per-inch), the Retina display’s pixel density is so high the human eye cannot distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance, so text and graphics look incredibly sharp. Images take on a new level of realism and text is pin sharp. And with a 2560-by-1600 resolution, you can see more of your high-resolution images onscreen with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. You’ll see fine details and textures in photos like never before, and even tell which photos are in focus just by looking at the thumbnail.
The Retina display uses IPS technology for a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and has 75 percent less reflection and 28 percent higher contrast than the previous generation.
With its entirely flash-based architecture, the MacBook Pro with Retina display makes everything you do incredibly fast and responsive. And when combined with a precision engineered aluminum unibody design, the new MacBook Pro is the lightest MacBook Pro ever and nearly as thin as a MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro’s flash storage architecture also delivers improved reliability, instant-on responsiveness, and 30 days of standby time. It’s also up to four times faster than traditional notebook hard drives, enabling the MacBook Pro with Retina display to play four simultaneous streams of uncompressed 1080p HD video from internal storage.
Two high-speed Thunderbolt ports allow the MacBook Pro to transfer data at lightning-fast speeds and connect displays like the Apple Thunderbolt Display, enabling you to turn this highly portable notebook into a highly versatile workstation. And with two USB 3 ports, you’ll be able to connect the latest USB 3 devices and access a pipeline that’s up to 10 times faster than USB 2.
You’ll be able to easily connect with friends, family, and business colleagues using the MacBook Pro’s HD 720p FaceTime camera, which is integrated into the thin bezel above the display and features three times the resolution of the previous FaceTime camera. And with Apple’s FaceTime application, you’re not limited to video chats with other Macs–you can now make video calls to iPhone and iPod touch users.

So you can install applications from a DVD or CD and have full access to an optical drive without having to carry one around. Additionally, you can connect an optional optical drive (such as the Apple USB SuperDrive) via one of the USB ports.
The MacBook Pro comes with 90 days of free telephone support and a 1-year limited warranty, which can be extended to 3 years with the AppleCare Protection Plan.

I downloaded all my files for PPC Payday.
The download page has three links to download.
All are zip files. PPC Payday Package1 has three files – a keyword file, a spreadsheet with ads written. The file I have opened has 4 versions of Ads.
I am very impressed with the ad copy.
The keywords sheet has exact match keywords which can be used for setting up a campaign.
There is a pdf file names welcome.pdf – This document mentions how to use these files.
He mentions about the restraints about Google Adwords and how to get by that. Totally ethical and totally sound. The product is what it says. I am sure that these campaigns will bring in a lot of money and the ads will convert very easily.
I work on setting up PPC Campaigns for clients and this is my work and when someone claims that they can help me “Never Faile with PPC” ~ well I am intrigued. That is just what the sales page of PPC PayDay states.
As a PPC specialist I have been exposed to so may products, so many false promises and have the opportunity to work with numerous clients. Some don’t seem to understand why they must spend money to make money. While others pay us for setup and then quite as soon as the cost per click increases.
The sales page of PPC PayDay says that they can help me NOT lose money. This sells in itself.
I decide to ask for a review copy and guess what I got one. So here is my review on what I think about PPC PayDay.
He says he is giving two sales templates. That would be awesome.
The sales copy also mentions that I should be getting a small guide which explains the niche, campaign setup etc.
Wow it says they will mention which affiliate products to promote, and what platforms to use.
I am looking for any mention of whether it is Google Adwords PPC or MSN PPC.
Well looks like it can be used in both Google Adwords and MSN Adcenter.
What do you with PPC PayDay
Here is what I should be getting
PPC PayDay Contents
Well now for the price. It says it is only for $11.95 and at present they have only one copy left at this price.
Okay now time to dig in and write my PPC Payday Review.
Damn what a day!! I submitted new ads and sitelinks for Google Adwords and it came back today after soooo many days and here is what I get

I am checking it out.
Here is what I did ~ checked for duplicate url s in Sitelinks ~ None so far so good.
Ah spotted it ~ its the damn apsotrophe is used in the link text
No gimmicky use of symbols: We don't allow symbols in link text that serve no purpose other than to draw attention to your sitelinks, like adding a "►" symbol in your sitelinks.
Well I did not pay a gimmick but that was the name of the place as is. I have removed the apostrophe and resubmitted.
Lets see how it goes
If your account is already linked to a Google Adwords account then you need to first remove or terminate this link before you can set yourself up with MCC or Google Adwords My Client Center.
Once you set up My Client Center for your primary email, you will be able to manage multiple Adwords accounts from a single location.
This is ideal if you are managing multiple accounts and are frustrated with having to log into numerous client accounts (google Adwords accounts), just to manage them.
First and foremost link your primary email to My Client Center by visiting the Google Certification Program link -> http://www.google.com/intl/en/adwords/professionals/
It need not be a real company, just something which you will remember. It could very well be your name.
Now you need to sign up with Google Adwords Client Center -> http://www.google.com/intl/en/adwords/myclientcenter/
If your existing gmail account is linked to Google Adwords it is so frustrating if you try to setup Google Adwords MCC.
Surprisingly there is a resource on Google -> My Client Center
But it doesn’t help at all.
I tried it and tried it till I found these two resources. I am sharing these with you. Hope it will save you tons of research time
If you want to manage multiple Google Adwords accounts then you can MCC to manage them all in one place. There is one glitch though!
It is a pain to setup.
If you already have a Google Adwords account linked to your primary email then you can do one of 2 things.
Create a new gmail account and transfer the ownership to the new account as shown in this article
Alternatively you could follow the instructions here

This is a part of our multi-part series on understanding how to run a successful PPC Campaign, which is optimized and focused. First we understood our customer, his business, and his competition. Then we studied and understood how to identify keywords for our campaign. We also learnt that we need to focus our adgroups with relevant keywords.
Today we will learn how to improve the Quality Score and the impact it will have on our Google Adwords Campaign.
Here are some quick Google Adwords Optimization Tips to improve the Quality Score of your Google Adwords Campaign.
1. Have tightly focused ad groups
2. Limit the number of keywords in an ad group
3. Try to make sure that your keyword occurs in the ad copy.
4. Make sure that the Landing Page is relevant to your ad.
5. Bid Wisely – The more the CTR or click through rate, the better your Quality Score. The Average CPC or cost per click will decrease over time with a better CTR and QS. You get better ad placements with lower CPC. This is because Google Adwords interprets a better CTR as a more relevant advertisement. So it translates to a improved Quality Score and paying less for a good position.
A well optimized Google Adwords Campaign will do wonders for your Campaign, budget and general health.
This is a continuation of our series on how to run a PPC Campaign.
Your initial client assessment coupled with feedback from the client will make this step in identifying keywords for your PPC campaign a breeze. Identify your main service areas and ask the client on what service areas she would like to focus.
You will usually get this information off the services page. Some clients might not be interested in targeting all the services they offer via the PPC Adwords Campaign. That is why it is a great idea to ask the client what service areas he wants to target.
Now that we have a fair idea of the service areas, it is time to use the Google Adwords Keyword Tool or PPC Keyword Generator tool to pull up some keywords. The easiest way to do this would be to enter your primary keywords into the Google Adwords Keyword Tool and drill down to specific ones.
The best part is that Google Adwords Keywords Tool will suggest adgroups, so that you can easily pinpoint major adgroups you would want to target for your Adwords campaign.
Split Keywords into AdGroups. Try and limit the number of keywords in each ad group. Keep the keywords as focused as possible within an adgroup. If the keywords within an adgroup are tight and focused then we will be able to write targeted ads. The more targeted the ad copy the better the QS or Quality Score.
