Apple has updated its MacBook Pro Retina line with new processors and more memory. The new models received faster versions of Intel Haswell processors and entry-level models had their RAM doubled.

All 13″ models now feature 8GB RAM in the standard configuration, while all 15″ models now start with 16GB RAM. Additionally, the high-end 15″ model is now priced $100 less for the standard configuration at $2499.

The 13″ model can be configured with up to a dual-core 3.0GHz Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz, while the 15″ model can be configured with up to  a quad-core 2.8GHz Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.0GHz.

11.6″ MacBook Air for $799 – Deal Alert

MacBook Air 11.6-inch

With the recent release of new MacBook Air models, B&H is clearing out the past generation and has the entry-level MacBook Air for $799 (reg. $999). Of course, the new entry-level model is only $849 (thanks to a $100 price drop on the MSRP when Apple launched the new models and B&H’s sale prices).

I actually have the model that is one year older than this model on clearance and have been very happy with its performance. I generally use it for travel and run Lightroom on it with no problems. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
