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.

It's too big, oozes too much "jobless, basement dwelling gamer" vibe, and too slow. I'd rather take a 512GB SSD over your 1TB (7200rpm) HDD so I'd have a more responsive system.

Character association. You'll be perceived by others as a jobless gamer and assumed as much - even if you aren't - because of what you use.

If your goal is to make the average Apple user seem like petty, shallow, and condescending twirps than congratulations.
