If you are considering updating yourself to aMacBook Pro Retina, your options just grew when selecting a new MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Previously, customers who opted for the base model were locked into a 2.3 GHz Core i7 processor and 256 GB of flash storage, with the only configurable onboard option being a $200 RAM upgrade from 8 GB to 16 GB. Customers looking to boost either the CPU or storage were required to step up to the high-end $2799 model, which offers both a 2.6 GHz i7 processor and 512 GB of storage, with additional upgrades beyond that.

You also have the option of pre-installing iWork applications on your Mac. Earlier today, Apple finally released the Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter that was announced in June.
