NZ prices come down as Apple updates MacBook Pro

Apple has today updated MacBook Pro with Retina display with faster processors, double the memory in both entry-level configurations, and a new, lower recommended retail price for the 15-inch notebook.

Cupertino also lowered the recommended retail price of the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro, with Windows switchers, by NZ$200 to NZ$1,499 inc. GST.

“People love their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminium unibody design, beautiful Retina display, all day battery life and deep integration with OS X,” says Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“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 spring.”

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display features dual-core Intel Core i5 processors up to 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3 GHz and 8GB of memory, up from 4GB in the entry-level notebook.

The 13-inch model can also be configured with faster dual-core Intel Core i7 processors up to 3.0 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.5 GHz.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro on the other hand has a new, lower recommended retail price of NZ$3,499 inc. GST – featuring faster quad-core Intel Core i7 processors up to 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7 GHz, 16GB of memory, up from 8GB in the entry-level notebook, and can be configured with quad-core Intel Core i7 processors up to 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.0 GHz.
