As expected, Apple today debuted refreshed 13-inch and 15-inch models of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. The new models feature faster Intel Haswell CPUs. and all 13-inch models now boast 8 GB of RAM standard, while the 15-inch models see their RAM boosted to 16 GB.

The new models include: 

13-inch:

  • $1299: 2.6 GHz dual-core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB flash storage
  • $1499: 2.6 GHz dual-core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB flash storage
  • $1799: 2.8 GHz dual-core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB flash storage

15-inch:

  • $1999: 2.2 GHz quad-core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB flash storage
  • $2499: 2.5 GHz quad-core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB flash storage (A $100 price cut on this model.)

The 13-inch model can now be built-to-order with a 3.0 GHz dual-core i7 CPU, while the 15-inch BTO can be upgraded to a 2.8 GHz quad-core i7 processor. Storage can be upgraded to up to 1 TB of flash storage on both display sizes.

While the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro didn’t receive any updates, it did receive a price cut, with its price seeing a $100 drop, from $1199 to $1099.

The lineup’s minor refresh is seen as a stopgap measure to tide the MacBook Pro lineup over until Intel’s next-generation Broadwell processors hit the market.
