Apple cuts MacBook Pro and MacBook Air prices, updates hardware

Apple Computer has prepared a double present for Valentine’s Day this year by not only reducing the prices of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air but also updating the hardware inside.

Starting today the basic version of the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 128 GB SSD costs USD 200 less, which amounts to USD 1300. The MacBook Air version with a 13-inch display and 256 GB SSD now costs USD 1400 or USD 100 cheaper. The 2.6 GHz version with a 256 GB SSD sells for USD 300 less – which amounts to USD 1700.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro machines did not get cheaper today – instead they got a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor. The most powerful version of the notebook now comes with 16 GB of RAM and a 2.7 GHz quad-core chip.

The updated/cheaper machines are available now.
