As expected, Apple has pushed out an upgrade to the Retina MacBook Pro lineup. Both the 15-inch and 13-inch models were updated, and two models received price drops.

Each 15-inch model received a modest processor speed bump, starting with a new 2.2 GHz chip in the base model, followed by 2.5 GHz in the upgraded version. The Turbo Boost speeds of each model are now up to 3.4 and 3.7 GHz, respectively. Both of the new models include 16 GB of RAM standard. The graphics processor in the upgraded model is still an NVIDIA GeForce 750M with 2 GB of VRAM.

A built-to-order option for a 2.8 GHz processor is also now available for the 15-inch model, which features Turbo Boost speeds of up to 4.0 GHz.

The 13-inch models have all been upgraded as well, featuring 2.6 GHz i5 processors in the two lower-end models, and a 2.8 GHz chip in the third model, with Turbo Boost speeds of 3.1 and 3.3 GHz. The cheapest of the three machines has also been upgraded from 4 GB of RAM to 8 GB standard.

The storage capacity of the 13-inch models remains unchanged, although a 1 TB built-to order option is now available, as is a 3.0 GHz CPU with Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.5 GHz.

The new MacBook Pros are priced similarly to the previous models, although the non-Retina 13-inch model got a $100 price drop, as did the higher-end 15-inch. Apple is still reportedly working on a new 12-inch model of the computer for release later this year.
