Falling Prices

February 13, 2013 - Dave Hecei
mbp retinaIn a surprise move, Apple has upped the processor speeds on both Retina based models. It has also lowered the prices of the 13-inch laptops. Then again it might be a sign of something else happening.

Just a day ago, the lowest priced MacBook Pro with Retina was the base 13-inch model with a 2.5GHz Core i5 processor priced at $1699. The price has now dropped to $1499. The high-end 13-inch model now has a 2.6GHz i5 processor and has dropped in price from $1999 to $1699.

So far the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina pricing has not changed. The processor has jumped from 2.3GHz to 2.4GHz on the base model and 2.6GHz to 2.7GHz on the high-end model.

The interesting thing with all this processor bump and price dropping is why? Two things that I can come up with are:  Apple has made enough Retina panels that the pricing has come down significantly. The other reason is that they are about to go all Retina in the Pro line. Hmmm.
