Apple has announced today that it is making its MacBook Pro with Retina display faster and more affordable, with updated processors and reduced starting prices.

The 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display now starts at $1649 for 128GB of flash (down from $1899), and $1849 for a new 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash (down from $2199).

The 15in MacBook Pro with Retina display now features a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor, and comes with a new 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.

Apple also announced today that its 13in MacBook Air with 256GB of flash has a new lower price point of $1549 (down from $1689).

The Cupertino-based company also confirmed processor upgrades and price drops in the US, with the newly updated 13in MacBook Pro with Retina display starting at US$1499 with 128GB of flash storage, and US$1699 for a 2.6GHz processor with 256GB of flash storage. That equates to savings of US$200 and US$300 off the previous prices. In addition, US customers will now pay US$100 less for the 13in MacBook Air with 250GB of flash storage at US$1399.

The updated MacBook Pro with Retina display and MacBook Air models are available in Australia from today via the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores and authorised resellers.
