Apple has dropped its Australian MacBook Pro prices across the board, presumably to reflect the stronger Australian dollar (or weaker US dollar, depending on how you want to look at it).

The price drop is particularly interesting given that Apple typically only adjusts prices when refreshing a line or launching new models. In this case, all the standard MacBook Pros are the same specs, but with a $50 or $100 drop in price. Apple has made one change to the line-up, however, offering a built-to-order 2.8GHz Core i7 option for its 15in and 17in MacBook Pros.

The new MacBook Pro prices are:

  • 13in 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo – $1449 (previously $1499)
  • 13in 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo – $1799 (previously $1899)
  • 15in 2.4GHz Core i5 – $2099 (previously $2199)
  • 15in 2.53GHz Core i5 – $2399 (previously $2499)
  • 15in 2.66GHz Core i7 – $2699 (previously $2798)
  • 17in 2.53GHz Core i5 – $2798 (previously $2899)

The upgrade from a 2.66GHz Core i7 to the the 2.8GHz chip costs $290.

    Do you think the prices will go back up if the Aussie dollar gets weaker?
