Update: Apple Updates 13", 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display Notebooks
July 28, 2014 9:09 AM
Apple will increase the standard RAM on its base 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display and boost processor speeds
Apple is set to launch a slightly revamped
MacBook Pro with Retina Display lineup tomorrow
. In light of a dearth of major chip releases from Intel, Apple is only making a few minor adjustments to its popular notebooks.
The 15” MacBook Pro with Retina Display is currently available (in the U.S.) in two pre-configured models. The base system ($1,999) only comes standard with 8GB of memory — moving to 16GB is a $200 option — and a 2GHz Intel Core i7 processor. The high-end model ($2,599) comes standard with 16GB of RAM and a 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
According to leaked signage, all 15” MacBook Pro with Retina Display models will come standard with 16GB memory, which is a nice addition on the base system considering that RAM is soldered onto the motherboard in Apple notebooks and can’t be upgraded.
In addition, all models are getting a 200MHz speed bump. The base system moves to 2.2GHz, the previous high-end model also gets a 200MHz speed boost to 2.5GHz, while a range-topping model (maxed out with all available options) comes to the table with a 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
Despite the CPU bump and 16GB of standard memory, prices will remain the same for the upgraded 15” MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
A separate report suggests that the 13” MacBook Pro with Retina Display lineup will receive an update tomorrow as well, but there is no information on pricing or what specs will be upgraded on those models.
Updated July 29 @ 9:09am
Apple this morning updated its
, reflecting the changes we reported on yesterday. The only major change is that the high-end 15" model is actually receiving a $100 price cut to $2,499.
In addition, the base 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display now has 8GB of RAM standard.
