By on February 14th, 2013

Apple today announced that it is giving its Retina line-up of MacBook Pros a mid-cycle refresh along with a price cut. The cheapest MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the 13-inch rMBP, sees a $200 reduction in price and will now cost $1499. The top-of-the-line 13-inch rMBP sees a $300 reduction in price ($1999 vs. $1799), and will also sport a slightly faster (2.5GHz vs. 2.6GHz) Core i5 processor.

The prices of the 15-inch rMBP remain the same, but both the variants get an upgraded processor. The base 15-inch rMBP gets a 100MHz speed boost to 2.4GHz (Core i7), while the top-of-the-line variant gets a speed bump to 2.7GHz, along with a bump in RAM capacity to 16GB DDR3L from 8GB DDR3L. The prices of updating the SSD storage options for the rMBP have also been decreased considerably.

In addition to all this, Apple also announced a $100 price cut on the base 13-inch MacBook Air model. The price cuts are already in effect at all the Apple retail stores and at the company’s online store.
