Apple cuts prices of MacBook Pro laptops by up to $200 on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, and updated its processors as well. This is almost two weeks after Apple announced its 128GB iPad with Retina Display, and International Data Corporation (IDC) reported that Samsung beats Apple in smartphone global sales.

As announced at Apple.com that day, the electronic giant company is now making the MacBook Pro with Retina display faster with updated processors, but with a much lower price. For its 13-inch version, the price is now $1,499 for 128GB of flash, and $1,699 for a new 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash.
On the other hand, the 15-inch version of the MacBook Pro with Retina display now sports a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor from 2.3GHz, but for the cheaper price of $2,199. The previous 2.6 GHz processor version now features a 2.7 GHz quad-core, along with the 16GB of RAM, priced at $2,799.
Meanwhile, Apple also cuts prices on the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash, which is now $1,399 from $1,499. The 13-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro, which was introduced last October with a starting price of $1,699, is 0.75 inches thick and weighs 3.5 lbs (1.58 kg), the “lightest MacBook Pro ever.”
The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, which was launched back in June 2012, notably features the world’s highest resolution notebook display. It was designed to deliver vibrant, detailed, and sharp images, and a better viewing for reading emails, writing text, editing home movies in HD.
