Apple makes MacBook Pro with Retina display faster and more affordable
Apple has just announced some changes to their industry-leading Mac Book Pro with Retina display lineup, including a new, lower starting price, and updated processors. According to Apple:
Apple is making the MacBook Pro with Retina display faster and more affordable with updated processors and lower starting prices. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now starts at $1,499 for 128GB of flash, and $1,699 for a new 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now features a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor, and the top-of-the-line 15-inch notebook comes with a new 2.7 GHz quad-core processor 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.
I've been using the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro since it was announced at WWDC 2012 last year, and it's the best computer I've ever used. It's so good I barely go near my Mac Pro anymore, and my MacBook Air has been retired. The only exception is the Intel HD GPU, which is redlined by Retina, but hopefully that gets solved in future generations.
At a lower starting price and with faster CPU options, it sounds even better. Anyone hitting the order button?
