MacBook Pro Retina and MacBook Air Prices Lowered

Apple has adjusted its notebook range Retina and the MacBook Air, changing some elements of their configurations and some prices. For Retina it involves both the 13 "released in October that the 15" June. This step has taken to make these machines more accessible to the wide spread community. Even its price was criticized at the time of their launch more particularly for the 13”. These price reductions definitely mitigate the reproaches. The actual tariff revision involved was not included for its phones. The Mac sales had declined to 15.2% as compared to the same quarter of the last year. This may be added possible reduction in the price and in the upstream production cost of these screens and their new arrival in the portable pc’s. the similar news about laptops could not be expected before this summer until the new arrival of Intel processors.

The price of 13 "MacBook Pro Retina starts from 1499 € instead of 1749 € with its Core i5 2.5 GHz and 128 GB SSD. Following model is € 1,699 instead of € 2,049 with 256 GB SSD and a sees its new processor frequency from 2.5 GHz to 2.6 GHz (Turbo Boost to 3.2 GHz instead of 3.1 GHz). Such adjustment of the family 13 "comes about five months after marketing.

The 15 "Retina always uses around a Core i7 processor with four cores. Its frequency from 2.3 GHz to 2.4 GHz for the first model and 2.6 GHz to 2.7 GHz for the most powerful. Model high end 15 "also takes 8 GB of RAM for 16 GB offer price fell to € 2199 and € 2799 instead of € 2279 and € 2899.

SSD options have also become more accessible, 256 GB, 512 GB and 768 GB are now at 200 €, 500 € and 900 € instead of 300 €, 800 € and 1300 €.

Note that one of the two MacBook Pro 15 " (standard screen), the top model at 2.6 GHz, has disappeared from the catalog ... or almost. In the state there are only 2 , 3 GHz to 1799 € instead of 1879 €., but by going into options include everything needed to make a custom machine (RAM, SSD, CPU and storage type). By configuring the laptop to find the Version removed, we gain a little less than 50 € on the old tariff.

Ecology: Apple gives up a standard

While Apple has yet again highlighted the next "green" MacBook Pro Retina during the presentation, she recently decided to abandon the standard EPEAT standard on which the Cupertino company was very supportive in recent year to tout the "energy efficient design" of its computers.

There are still a few weeks on its website Apple was pleased that all of its computers had "received the word Gold, the highest award of the EPEAT". She then presented the EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) as "the most comprehensive environmental standard and widely adopted in the world".
