Apple today announced some updates to its MacBook line up. The 13″ Retina MacBook Pro starts at $1,499 for 128GB of flash storage. The 256GB version with a new 2.6GHz processer starts at $1,699. About 200 dollars cheaper. So that’s great news and I expect that over time Retina MacBook Pro’s prices will eventually become around the same prices as the non-Retina MacBook Pro’s and replace them in the MacBook Product line.
Also the 15″ Retina MacBook pro specs got bumped to a slightly faster 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of ram staying at the same price. They also lowered the price of the 256GB 13″ MacBook Pro, making it now costing $1,399.
