Five portables from this family now feature more memory and faster processors, as well as a lower starting price for the top-of-the-line 15-inch version.

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. For more details, please check the press release below.
