MacBook Pro with Retina display price cut

Apple has announced an immediate price reduction on the entry-level 128 GB 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, slashing the price by $200 down to $1499. Additionally, for $1699 (the same price that the entry-level model used to be) you can now get the 256 GB version with a faster 2.6 GHz processor.

On the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro side of things, the $2,199 base model now features an upgraded 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 processor (up from a 2.3 GHz chip,) while the top-of-the-line $2,799 model now sports a 2.7 GHz i7 with 16 GB RAM.

As an aside, Apple has also dropped the price of the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256 GB storage--it now sells for $1,399, $100 less than it sold for previously.


If you're looking for the top-end 15-inch MacBook Pro (non-Retina) you're out of luck, as Apple seems to have plucked it from the line-up.
 
Apple isn't really known to drop prices like this alongside spec bumps, but it's a welcome sign that it's making effort to make the Retina display versions of its notebooks both more affordable, and more impressive.
