Yesterday, Apple updated their retina MacBook Pro lineup with faster processors, increased memory options and configurations. From Apple…
People love their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminum unibody design, beautiful Retina display, all day battery life and deep integration with OS X,”
“The MacBook Pro with Retina display gets even better with faster processors, more memory, more affordable configurations and a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite this fall.”
The minor configuration bump is considered a stop-gap of sorts while we wait for Intel to release their next-generation Broadwell processors, which are expected to be available by the end of the calendar year. This remains to be seen, though, and many analysts have suggested that the Broadwell chip-set might not be available until mid-2015, IF Apple even commits to using it in the MBP line-up in the first place.
You can purchase one of the new 13″ and 15″ Retina MacBook Pro’s Apple retail stores or online–some shipping in as little as 24 hours. These Retina MBP’s are also eligible as part of Apple’s Back-to-School Campaign which gives college students, students accepted to college, parents buying for college students, faculty, homeschool teachers, and staff at all grade levels a $100 Apple Store Gift Card when you buy a Mac for college.
