Having left some pricing details ambiguous for its new 12″ MacBooks after last month’s Spring Forward event, Apple today disclosed the prices of its highest-end 1.3GHz models… According to Expercom, an authorized Apple reseller, the 1.3GHz Core M CPU will be offered as a $250 upgrade to the base $1,299 1.1GHz model, for a total price of $1,549 including 256GB of SSD storage. By comparison, the normally $1,599 1.2GHz model with 512GB of storage will be offered with a 1.3GHz CPU for $1,749, a $150 premium.

Apple will launch the 12″ MacBook this Friday in both its online and retail stores, though it has already been unboxedbenchmarked, and featured in a semi-amusing Ukranian video. Both of the 1.3GHz MacBooks will be available as build-to-order models, and thus may not be found in local stores.
