Once again Apple is making changes in its product configuration. This time it is upgrading with faster CPU, more memory and cheaper in price. Apple’s news MacBooks with 15-inch model Retina’s were given less price tag and the non-Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch model received a $100 price cut.
Apple’s senior vice-president of worldwide marketing said the popular computers will only get better as upgrades. He said, “People love their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminum unibody design, beautiful Retina display, all day battery life and deep integration with OS X,” said Philip Schiller. “The MacBook Pro with Retina display gets even better with faster processors, more memory, more affordable configurations and a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite this fall.”
