(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple has released its new updated MacBook Pro today, adding faster processors and more memory to entry-level laptops, announced the Cupertino based company via press release.
The new upgrade boosts the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display’s memory from 4GB to 8GB, and adds Intel’s Core i5 and i7 processors to the 13-inch and 15-inch models.
Additionally, Apple has doubled the “top-of-the-line” 15-inch MacBook Pro’s RAM from 8GB to 16GB, while lowering its starting price to $2,499.
The starting price of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, without Retina, has been lowered by $100 to $1,099, with the entry level 15-inch starting at $1,999.
Apple’s new price cuts and upgrades come months before the release of OS X Yosemite, the new operating system that adds “a redesigned and refined version of OS X, with a fresh, modern look, powerful new apps and amazing new continuity features that make working across your Mac and iOS devices more fluid than ever.”
OS X Yosemite is slated to launch this fall and will be available as a free download form the Mac App Store.
