Apple Updates MacBook Pro With Retina Display

Faster and cheaper Mac notebooks, just in time for back-to-school shopping.


A week after Apple announced that its Mac business had grown by 18 percent year over year at a time when the overall market is contracting, the company updated its MacBook Pro with Retina display notebooks.

The new devices come with faster processors and twice the memory in entry-level configurations. Apple also lowered the entry price for its top-of-the-line 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and trimmed $100 off the starting price for the 13-inch MacBook Pro (without a Retina display).

These devices, which are powered by the OS X Mavericks operating system, get a free upgrade to new OS X Yosemite this fall.
