Apple products are generally known to cost more than their Windows-powered counterparts, but over the years, you can say that the gap has been reduced significantly. Well, even better news for folks who are operating on a tight budget and yet want to pick up a new MacBook Pro with Retina display – Apple has decided to update its pricing by throwing in better processors at a more pocket-friendly sticker price. For starters, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display will now start at $1,499 for 128GB of flash, and $1,699 for a new 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash memory.
As for the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, it will now run on a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor, with the top-of-the-line 15-inch notebook boasting a new 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory. Not only that, the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash memory will also see its price slashed to a new low of $1,399. The new pricing has taken effect immediately via Apple’s online store as well as at retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. I wonder how folks who purchased a new MacBook Pro with Retina display last week felt with the new prices. [Press Release]
