Pat yourself on the back if you've been patiently waiting for Apple to refresh its MacBook Pro with Retina display making the leap. Today is that day -- in anticipation of OS X Yosemite, Apple refreshed its MacBook Pro with Retina display line with faster processors, double the memory in entry-level configurations, and a lower price tag for the top-of-the-line 15-inch model.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now comes standard with a 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor (up from 2.4GHz previously), 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM (up from 4GB of RAM previously), and 128GB of flash-based PCIe storage for $1,299. For $1,499, Apple will double the storage to a 256GB SSD, and at the $1,799 price point, you get you a 2.8GHz Core i5 processor and 512GB SSD.

MacBook Pro Models

Moving up to the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, the $1,999 model now comes with a 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (up from 2GHz previously), 16GB of DDR3-1600 RAM (up from 8GB previously), and 256GB SSD. Meanwhile, the flagship model receives a $100 price drop to $2,499 and comes with a 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.

Finally, Apple also knocked $100 off the price of its non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro to $1,099, which comes with a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, and 500GB hard drive.

All of these systems will receive a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite in the Fall.

Originally it was way overpriced, now it is just minorly overpriced. I like to stick with my Desktop which is about the same price and does triple the performance of any laptop. But for people who travel a lot I can see why they'd want one of these.
