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.

You stayed out of it because you would have gotten your ass kicked, again.

Just like Windows vs Mac, when 75%+ of the people are using something (Android) it's going to have more infections. Oh the horror...

We all know YOU love a closed system for many of the benefits, security being one of them, but that doesn't make you right.

There were no excuses, no spin. Nice try.

Numerous people in there made the same points I would have (and have in the past), and they made you look like fools. The only thing my presence would have done is add rage to the thread, but that's your problem, not mine.

And again, completely wrong thinking from you. iOS does have malware, but its all from sideloading apps on jailbroken devices.

From a hacker perspective iOS a very valuable target given that it makes up the majority of internet traffic and app downloads since iOS is running on more high end devices.

The thing that keeps iOS safe from malware is the rejection of malware on the App Store. On the rare occasion it makes it through it is pulled quickly. Curation, that's all.

Meanwhile you see this sort of thing appear on Google Play: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/02/03/android-m...

It also has better apps, smoother and faster UI performance, excellent screens and battery life, things like that. I'll take it over almost uniformly inferior hardware (Droid DNA is one of the few that stacks up), inferior apps, etc. It isn't for everyone but its fine for me, no reason to get mad.

This is insane...wow, you've really lost it.

I am NOT interested in another Android vs iOS debate at nearly midnight. This thread isn't even ABOUT that. What the F is wrong with you? Honestly is this all you think about?

How did we even get on this? I'm pretty sure it wasn't from something I said.

*whistles*... wow...umm okay? Just wow man. Seriously seek help.

I'm not mad, far from it. I'm genuinely and honestly perplexed and a bit concerned about your mental health. I simply do not understand this bizarre personal validation you and Tony get from aligning yourself with a consumer electronic device.

We're talking about laptops. I come home from dinner at a friends, and you suddenly make it about iOS vs Android all over again. Out of the blue. COMPLETELY unprovoked by me or anyone else. See anything wrong with this?

I brought it up because the hypocrisy of your head-spinning defense there while accusing others of doing the same, especially when they back up their points with balance and logic rather than emotion and rhetoric, is hilarious.

Nice try, exactly the response I expected.

Do us both a favor and just stay on topic next time?

It's good that you resorted to the ad-homenum right off and bringing up week-old topics that were totally unrelated to now. It means you have nothing else.

Isn't that much obvious when he regurgitates the same shit day in and day out? I bet he sits and hits refresh on the screen every couple of seconds waiting for someone to respond to pounce on them like a rabid dog.
