Apple today said it would cut the price of its 13-inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display while simultaneously updating it with faster processors. The 15-inch model is also getting improved specs, although its price remains the same.
The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro now starts at $1,499 for 128GB of solid-state flash storage, and $1,699 for 256GB of storage. The higher-end model also includes a more robust 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor.
The 15-inch model still starts at $2,199, but now that gets you a quad-core 2.4GHz Core i7 processor. If you want the best of the best, you can now get a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with a quad-core 2.7GHz Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM (max used to be 8GB) for $2,799.
In addition to the adjustments to the Retina MacBook Pro line, Apple also took the price of its 13-inch MacBook Air down a notch: The 13-inch model with 256GB of flash storage now costs $1,399.
The new prices and specs are effective today, both online and in Apple Stores.
