    Default Apple Refreshes its MacBook Pro With Retina Display Lineup With Improved Specs


    As we reported yesterday, Apple was ready to bump up the specs of their MacBook Pro with retina display lineup Tuesday, and as it would appear, the rumors were true. On Tuesday, Apple has followed through with the refresh, and now, the latest MacBook Pros with retina displays are available to order on Apple's Web site.

    The refreshed MacBook Pro with retina display lineup gives a few minor tweaks to the specs of the machines, although they're still using Intel's Haswell processors, which were already available in the previous offering they've just had the specs bumped up a bit.

    The speed improvements users will see is that many of the machines have been 200 megahertz speed improvements across the board, and improvements to the standard RAM offerings are also noticeable all 13-inch configurations come standard with 8GB of memory, while all 15-inch configurations come standard with 16GB of memory. Custom configurations are now much more advanced for these machines as well.

    In Apple's press release, Apple also notes that the non-retina display version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro has been given a $100 price cut, so is now available for $1099.

    Because the upgrades are minimal, those already using 2013 MacBook Pros with retina displays shouldn't be in any rush to make the upgrade. We'd recommend waiting for the next generation of Intel processors to hit the market.

    Still don't get a decent GPU unless you go to the absolute top end model....they really need to remove the word "pro" from the name.
    Looks like all they really did was up the clock speed. Don't need a new model to do that.
