article imageApple's 2014 MacBook Pro line gets specifications updates

By Milton Este     Aug 2, 2014 in Technology
Leaked images supposedly coming out of an Apple store in China shows updates for specifications and prices for the 13-inch and 15-inch models of Apple's MacBook Pro lineup.
Apple has been busy at work lately. So far, we have seen price cuts with the current MacBook Airs and iMac.
The next generation MacBook Pro or the thousand dollar Facebook machine has yet to make an appearance. For those eagerly waiting, the good news is that there are some very nice hardware upgrades.
The prices remain unchanged with the MacBook Pro 13, with prices starting at $1,299 for the 128GB model, $1,499 for 256GB and $1,799 for the 512GB model with a 2.8GHz dual-core i7 chip. For an additional $200, buyers can have the default 8GB RAM upgraded to 16GB. The MacBook Pro 15 also remains unchanged at $1,999 and $2,499, but instead of adding $200, buyers can now get the standard 16GB RAM for both models.
Specification wise Instead of the 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of memory, the entry-level 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is now equipped with 200GHz more in terms of processing power and 8GB of RAM. The Pro 15 $1,999 model also gets an upgraded chipset, from a 2.0GHz Intel quad-core i7 to a 2.2GHz i7. The higher-end 15-inch Pro, however, has the same 2.5GHz quad-core i7 chipset from Intel but with a $100 price cut from $2,599.
Another rumor coming from an Apple Store in China suggests Apple may be planning a third 'maxed-out' Pro 15 model featuring a 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and Intel Iris Pro and Nvidia GeForce GT 750M graphics.
Current predicted announcement date is some time in October, the actual date is still unknown.
