If you happened to buy a swanky new MacBook Pro with Retina Display last summer, you knew it was just a matter of time before a spec bump made you regret that purchase -- and that day is today.
Apple announced a refresh of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display on Wednesday, making them even faster and more affordable than before. Even better, the updated models are available starting today from the Apple Online Store, retail stores or Apple Authorized Resellers.
At the bottom end of the spectrum, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display now starts at a mere $1499 with 128GB of flash storage, or $1699 for a souped-up new 2.6GHz processor with 256GB of flash storage.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display started shipping right after it was first announced last June, but today features a faster 2.4GHz quad-core processor, while the top-of-the-line model now comes standard with a 2.7GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.
Tucked into the same announcement, Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash storage is also getting a price cut, down to $1399.
Okay, so that news wasn't quite so bad for early MacBook Pro with Retina Display adopters… was it?
