All price changes and spec updates are available now

Apple is looking to lure customers to its MacBook line by reducing prices and increasing specs on some of its higher-end models.

Apple announced today that it is cutting prices on its MacBook Pros with Retina display and even a MacBook Air model.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and 128GB of flash will now start at $1,499 (previously $1,699) while the model with 256GB of flash and a 2.6 GHz processor will start at $1,699 (previously $1,999).


The 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash also saw a price drop to $1,399.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display didn't see a price cut this round, but it did get a bump in specs. This model now offers a 2.4 GHz quad-core processor (previously 2.3 GHz) while the top-of-the-line version has a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor (previously 2.6 GHz) and 16GB of memory. The price remains the same at $2,799.

Apple is likely reducing prices ahead of a refreshed line of MacBook devices. All price changes and spec updates are available now.

Agree.

This whole "build quality" argument from the Apple crowd is hilarious. They basically think if you wrap anything in aluminum, it's automatically "better" than whatever else is out there.

They do have rigid structures, good finishes, and great trackpads.

I'm no apple elitist with my galaxy nexus and 6core i7 desktop...but I do have an air I run with and it is probably the best ultrabook out there...by a lot.
