The entry-level 13-inch model now comes with a 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor – previously it was a 2.4GHz chip – with 8GB of RAM as standard.

The top-tier 13-inch model comes with a 2.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, and also has 8GB of RAM.

The two 15-inch Pros both now have 16GB of RAM and Intel’s Core i7 processor.

Prices start at £999 for the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display up to £1,999 for the top-of-the-line 15-incher.

They are all available to buy now from the Apple Store.

Word of Apple’s updated Retina MacBook Pro line leaked online when photos of in-store signage in China revealed detailed specs for three 15-inch configurations.
