Apple has just announced that it has updated MacBook Pro and MacBook Air product lines.

Apple has updated MacBook Pro with Retina Display with new processors. It has also reduced the prices for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display and MacBook Air with 256GB of flash.

From the press release:

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.

That works out to a drop of $200 and $300 on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and $100 on the high-end MacBook Air with 256GB of flash.

The new MacBook Pros and MacBook Air are available today. If you had bought one in the last 14 days, then you can get it exchanged for the newer model.

It’s great news for someone planning to buy a MacBook Pro with Retina Display, not only do they get the latest processor but it’s also much cheaper now. If only we could get such price drops on the iPhone and iPad, but guess it’s just wishful thinking.

      It’s not really a discount is it? A price drop will eventually roll out worldwide

    Why are there Samsung adverts in the background?

      Because their money is just as green as anyone else’s.
