Apple updates MacBook Pro, MacBook Air

Apple on Wednesday said it had updated its portable computers — both the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air product lines were updated.

According to Apple, the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina now costs $1,499 for 128GB of flash, and $1,699 for a faster model with a 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash.

The 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro now comes with a 2.4 GHz quad-core processor on the lower end model. The high-end model has a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.

The MacBook Air with 256GB of flash has a lower price of $1,399.

All of the new MacBook Pros are available today. If you bought a MacBook in the last 14 calendar days, you can exchange it for one of the new models.

    No update in the UK store yet, interestingly.

    • It’s okay, the US Store doesn’t seem to have changed either. Presumably this will hit later today…

        Ah, thank you – hadn’t noticed that! The UK Mac pages have been updated, so I guess it’s just taking a while to come through.

    Awesome! Now give me the Haswell.

  • In Brazil they increased the price… The Macbook Air 11″ 64GB is now 10% more expensive.

    what does Jim thinking about the update? does this mean the next update is a long way off? what are the benefits of Hasswel?

    • As far as I know Haswell isn’t due until June at the earliest and that’s for launch, production in bulk may take a little longer than that. The thing is though I’m not sure it’s worth waiting for. Or, to be more accurate, it depends what you’re looking to buy. Anything with integrated graphics, yes, hang on for Haswell. All reports are it’s a big jump forward in that regard. If you’re looking at a machine with discrete graphics… hmm, then it’s trickier. I’m sure it’ll be a bit faster but most tasks aren’t exactly crippled by current CPU speeds. Power consumption (and therefore heat) should be better but is that enough to be worth the wait?

  • Pathetic “Boost”, but not surprised since its Apple….
