Apple cuts MacBook Pro price, updates processors

CUPERTINO, Calif. » Apple says it has lowered the price of its 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops by $200 and updated its processors. It also launched new models with faster processors and more memory.

Apple Inc. said Wednesday that the MacBook Pro with "Retina" display and 128 gigabytes of flash memory will now cost $1,499, down from $1,699. A new model with 256 gigabytes of flash will cost $1,699.

The 15-inch model has a faster processor and the same price.

Apple unveiled the new MacBook Pro models last fall. It has flash memory instead of the traditional hard drive, which makes it thinner and lighter.

Apple reported a surprising decline in Mac sales in the final quarter of 2012. It sold 4.1 million of them, down 22 percent from shipments a year earlier.

Wow. The last time I spent anywhere near a $1000 on a single computer is close to 10 years ago. What a racket.

Window 'Ultrabooks' costing around $1,000 or less have bitten into Apple's dominance of thin, sleek laptops big time. Most people realize it is just not worth the price to pay for a single Macbook that costs from what was $1,700, to over $3,000 for the top of the line Macbooks.
