Updated: It’s go time. Apple has actually simply updated its Retina MacBook Pro lineup with a slight spec bump, bestowing faster Intel Haswell processors and a bit more RAM onto its laptops.
The entry-level 13-inch now has a 2.6 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor (was 2.4 GHz), 8GB of RAM as standard, Intel Iris graphics, and now for the less costly price of ₤ 999 ($1,299 / AU$ 1,599).
Meanwhile the top-tier 13-inch model features a 2.8 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and Intel Iris graphics also.
As for the two 15-inch Pros, they both now provide 16GB of RAM and pack in Intel’s Core i7 processor. The more affordable of the 2 is a 2.2 GHz affair with Intel Iris Pro graphics, while the higher specification 15-incher (₤ 1,999 /$2,499 / AU$ 2,999) boosts its processor to 2.5 GHz and also includes Nvidia’s GeForce GT 750M.
Of course, we are anticipating a more significant upgrade to the Retina MacBook Pro line when Intel’s next-gen Broadwell processors are readily available to make use of, though this mightn’t take place until next year.
You can go have a look at the new lineup over at the Apple Store right now.
Original story below…
If you happen to be reading this on your phone while stood in the line at the Apple Store, excitedly waiting for to swipe yourself a shiny new MacBook Pro – hold the phone! You may be better to suffer a bit longer.
That’s due to the fact that Apple looks set to debut a rejuvenated line of 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros with faster Haswell processors and 16GB of RAM throughout the variety, or so says a photo that’s apparently come from its store in Chongqing, China (as published to BBS Feng).
The entry-level model includes an Intel Core i7 2.2 GHz processor (up from 2GHz) with 16GB of RAM (up from 8GB).
The second features a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7, while the third packs in a 2.8 GHz processor and 1TB of flash storage. As formerly pointed out, both those also come with 16GB of RAM also.
The initially of the array includes Intel’s Iris Pro graphics, while the latter two pack both Iris and Nvidia’s GeForce GT 750M.
At least in China, Apple’s keeping its price points the very same, therefores it mightn’t be providing a cheaper MacBook Air as it just recently revealed.
No word on when we could see these, and even if they are legitimate, however it’s possible that Apple will certainly offer its line a refresh in time for Yosemite’s full launch later on this year.
