Apple Refreshes MacBook Pro With Retina Display Specs, Slashes Some Pricing
Apple Wednesday morning announced a hardware refresh
of their MacBook Pro with retina display lineup, and at the same time, reduced pricing.
The base-model 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display with 128GB of flash storage now starts at $1499, rather than $1699. For the $1699 price, buyers can get the new 2.6Ghz processor configuration with 256GB of flash storage. It doesn't seem like a whole lot, but any slashed prices are welcome.
The refresh doesn't only affect the 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display, as the 15-inch MacBook Pro with retina display also gets a minor speed boost. The basic 15-inch MacBook Pro with retina display now comes with a 2.4Ghz quad-core processor configuration, while the top-of-the-line configuration now comes with a 2.7Ghz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.
Apple also announced Wednesday morning that the MacBook Air is included in the price slash. The 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash storage is now only $1399.
The MacBook Pro with retina display features a high-resolution display, which Apple touts to be the world's best resolution on a notebook computer, while the MacBook Air does not. Both notebook computers are reasonably thin and both come with blazing-fast flash storage. The refreshed machines are available starting today. Will you be taking advantage of the lowered prices and increased speed?
