Apple has updated all the MacBook Pro laptops that feature Retina display earlier this week. This Tuesday, a press release from the Cupertino-based giant unveiled that its five such devices now have faster processors, more memory (two times more than before for the two entry-level notebooks), as well as a lower price for the top-of-the-line 15-inch model.
While the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now comes equipped with Intel Core i5 processors, the high-end Intel Core i7 chips can also be ordered to create a more powerful custom build to satisfy the customer. The cheaper models feature 8 GB of memory now, while the 15-inch version comes straight with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of memory and starts at $2,499 USD.
These machines are loaded with OS X Mavericks for now, but Apple revealed that "OS X Yosemite will be available as a free download from the Mac App Store℠." as well. They also have iLife and iWork included with the operating system and all five can be purchased from the Apple Online Store and select Apple Authorized Resellers.
