Apple has, reportedly, slashed the prices of its MacBooks.
The 256 GB MacBook Pro that was initially marketed at the $1700 price-tag, is now available at $1400. Other MacBook models offer more storage and more processing power, at the same price. For instance, the $1700 13 inch MacBook Pro with 256 GB storage space and Retina display, now comes with 2.6 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor Although the price has been kept impact, Apple has provided some significant processing boost by integrating a faster 2.6 GHz processor, instead of the 2.4 GHz processor.
Similarly, the $2,199 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now features a faster 2.4-GHz, quad-core processor instead of the conventional 2.3 GHz processor, and comes with 8 GB of RAM.
The most expensive MacBook Pro is inordinately priced at $2799. It’s powered by 2.7 GHz Intel chip and comes with 16 GB of RAM.
So, the awesome part it about the new price drops on MacBook Pro is that you’re not only paying less, you’re also getting sumptuous amount of space and a nimbler processor.
The cuts reflect Apple’s attempt to sell even more MacBook following the 22% lapse in the shipments last year. It sold only 4.1 million pieces in the last quarter of 2012. The price-drops and the petty hardware upgrades are just an attempt to lure more MacBook buyers.
