Apple Upgrades Its 15-Inch Retina MacBook Pro and Drops Price of 5K Retina iMac



Apple today announced a couple of changes to its flagship MacBook and iMac lines. On the laptop side, the company is unveiling an updated 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina that brings it up to speed with its smaller siblings.


The new MacBook features Apple’s new Force Touch trackpad, flash storage that’s 2.5 times faster, better graphics, and an extra hour of battery life. It’ll be available starting today for $1,999.


$1,999 is the same price for a new 27-inch Retina 5K iMac that was announced today. It’s a low-end version that packs 14.7-million pixels, a 3.3GHz quad-core processor, and a terabyte of storage. This new tier and price point also helped to drive down the price of the top-end iMac, which now starts at $2,299 instead of $2,499.
