MacBook Pro With Retina Display Gets Price Drop, Processor Boost
Apple this morning quietly dropped the price on its lineup of MacBook Pros with Retina display, and gave them a speed boost.
The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro now starts at $1,499 rather than $1,699, while the 15-inch starts at $2,199.
The laptops also got a processor update. The $1,699 version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now boasts a 2.6-GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 and 256GB of flash, whereas its cheaper counterpart still runs a 2.5-GHz chip and has 128GB of flash.
The $2,199 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now features a faster 2.4-GHz, quad-core processor instead of 2.3 GHz, as well as 8GB of memory. At $2,799, the most expensive MacBook Pro with Retina includes a 2.7-GHz chip (up from 2.6 GHz) and 16GB of memory.
Apple today also announced that the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash has a new lower price of $1,399.
All of the updated Macs are now on sale, Apple said.
The display on the 15-inch device comes in at 2,880-by-1,800 and 220ppi, which Apple’s Phil Schiller said last year makes it the world’s highest-resolution notebook. The 13-inch version boasts a 2,560-by-1,600-pixel display.
