Apple’s doesn’t cut the prices of its products very often, so when it does, it draws some attention. Today, Apple gave its Retina MacBook Pro line-up a bit of a refresh/upgrade, while cutting the price on its 13-inch entry model by $200, which now starts at just $1,499. All the new computers are equipped with the latest processors from Intel, like the 15-inch Retina MBP, which was bumped to a 2.4GHz quad-core processor, up from the 2.3GHz, the more expensive model (also 15-inches) saw an increase too, up to 2.7GHz from 2.6GHz. Apple also doubled the RAM in the expensive model from 8GB to 16GB.

Apple didn’t just give the MBP line all the love, the 13-inch MacBook Air (with 256GB of storage) also received a $100 price cut, which now makes its starting price just $1,399.

All these new machines are available for order via Apple.com/store, or you can go to your local Apple retailer.
