Apple has today announced that it has updated its 13- and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro to add faster processors and lower prices. The 13-inch model now starts at $1,499 with 128GB of flash storage, rising to $1,699 for a new 2.6GHz processor and 256GB of flash.
The 15-inch model now offers a faster 2.4GHz quad-core processor as standard, while the top-of-the-line model gets a new 2.7GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.
Before today’s update, the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro started at $1,699 for 128GB, and went up to $1,999 for 256GB of storage. So Apple has slashed $200 off the base model, and $300 off the high-end model. The 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro hasn’t received any price cuts, but its new processors give you a little extra bang for your buck.
In addition to the Retina MacBook Pro updates, Apple has lowered the price of its 13-MacBook Air with 256GB of storage to $1,399.
The new machines are all available today with their new price tags from the Apple online store, Apple retail stores, and from Apple Authorized Resellers. Customers who purchased a Retina MacBook Pro within the last 14 days are able to exchange their purchase for one of the new models.
