Apple update MacBook Pro with Retina Display range: Now faster and cheaper

Share

macbook-pro-retina-2.jpgApple’s MacBook Pro with Retina display is pretty much the best laptop that money can buy right now. Today, that range gets even better, with Apple updating the line with faster processors, as well as slashing its price tags.

Kicking off with the 13-inch model, the 256GB model with SSD storage now comes with a 2.6GHz dual-core processor and a new price tag of £1,449 – £200 cheaper than previously sold for. The 128GB model pricing remains unchanged at £1,249.

Moving up to the 15-inch machine, it now packs in a 2.4GHz quad-core processor as opposed to the 2.3GHz processor previously used, while the optional higher-spec version of the 15-inch model also gets a processor boost up to a 2.7GHz quad-core version.

If the slinky, thin MacBook Air line is more your thing, that too gets a price cut, with the 13-inch model with 256GB SSD storage dropping to £1,199.

Heading over to the Apple Store online shows that the older prices are currently still in play, but these new prices are confirmed. Hold out a few hours before making a purchase and you should see the changes in pricing applied.
