The MacBook Pro with Retina and 13-inch MacBook Air got some mid-cycle improvements under the hood today, with a new 2.6GHz processor for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, new 2.4 and 2.7GHz processors for the 15-inch version, and 16GB of memory as a top-end spec on the larger Retina model. The MacBook’s 256GB version has a new lower price of $1399, and the 13-inch Retina now starts at $1499 and $1699 for the base and upgraded configurations respectively.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display was at $1,699 and $1,999 respectively for its two stock considerations before today, and the higher-end model sported only a 2.5GHz processor before any user upgrades. So now you get a beefier process for $300 less. The new price points also mean that the entry-level 13-inch Retina is now at price parity with the top-end 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro, though you get a i7 processor at that price instead of an i5 as in the Retina. The 15-inch now has a faster 2.4GHz processor at the entry-level configuration for $2,199, and gets a new 2.7GHz quad-core processor at the top end, with 16GB of memory instead of 8GB for $2,799.

The 13-inch MacBook Air used to cost $1,499 before the price drop, but now keeps the same specs, including a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and a 256GB SSD.
