Retina MacBooks Get Minor Bump, Price Drop

Apple has given the MacBook Pro with Retina models a slight spec bump in processor speed and increased RAM, the company said:

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.

So that’s roughly $200-$300 less than before (for the 13-inch model), with 2.6 GHz (up from 2.3 GHz) for the 15-inch, and 2.7 GHz (up from 2.6 GHz) for the 13-inch. No changes to the GPUs have been made.
