Apple updates MacBook Pro with Retina display

Apple has updated the MacBook Pro with a new Retina display, as well as increased memory and faster processors.

The new design features a high-resolution display, with a slim width of 0.71-inches, plus a new lower starting price of £1,999, for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

The model features faster quad-core Intel Core i7 processors up to 2.5 GHz, 16GB of memory and can be configured with quad-core Intel Core i7 processors up to 2.8 GHz.

As well as this, the 15-inch model has an extended battery life of up to nine hours.

Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said: “People love their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminium unibody design, Retina display, all day battery life and deep integration with OS X.

“The MacBook Pro with Retina display gets even better with faster processors, more memory, more affordable configurations and a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite,” this autumn.

iLife, which allows users to edit videos and photos, and iWork which lets users create documents on the iPhone and iPad, are also included for free with every new Mac.

Apple also lowered the starting price of the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro by £100 to £899.
