Apple improves the power of MacBook Pro Retina and lowers the price of the 15-inch model
From time to time, the American company usually updates its computers, both desktops and laptops. This time it’s the second group, and that is Apple has updated the MacBook Pro with a Retina screen to include a more powerful processor and double the memory .
But it doesn’t stop there, since the apple company has also announced that the 15-inch model will be reduced in price to make it more “affordable” , and we say this in quotes because even though its base price has been reduced it is still quite expensive and not everybody can afford it.
The MacBook Pro series with Retina display has a high-resolution screen : the 13-inch model has a screen size of 2560×1600 pixels, while the 15-inch model has a screen size of 2880×1800 pixels. Other outstanding features of this range are that are laptops with a thickness of just 1.8 centimetres , within which we find components that make them one of the most efficient devices on the market.
Important changes in the MBP Retina family
From now on, the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina will feature a Dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with up to 2.8GHz and Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.3Ghz. Regarding memory, it includes a RAM of 8GB , compared to the 4GB of the previous base model.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro will feature a Quad-core Intel Core i7 processor up to 2.5GHz and a Turbo Boost speed of up to 3.7GHz. The RAM memory will be increased to 16GB , doubling the 8GB previously included in the input model.
It should be remembered that there is also the possibility for the user to customise some of the components when buying a MacBook Pro Retina to make it even more powerful.
In addition, the other big change announced by Apple has been the reduction in the price of the 15-inch model , considered the “top of the range” device of the brand’s laptops. Now the entry-level model will be priced at 2,029 , VAT included.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s vice president of worldwide marketing, also said that setup will now be easier and users will be able to enjoy the upgrade to OS X Yosemite for free this fall.
Finally, if you’re interested in getting one of these new laptops, you can get it now through the Apple Online Store, physical stores and Official Retailers.
Apple makes the most of all its components
One of the “weak points” that some users attribute to the computers created by the company is that they do not have the most powerful components on the market. However, at Apple they know how to squeeze the full capabilities of each and every one of those components resulting in very powerful computers, even outperforming other competitors with better technical features.

The fact is that not always having the latest is the best, but rather you have to know how to optimize it and get the most out of it , something that Cupertino’s people know how to do very well.
