MacBook Pro gets thinner, cheaper

Written by Fudzilla staff

Blurring the line between Air and Pro

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro measures just 0.71 inches at the waistline and it weighs 3.6lbs. Since Apple doesn’t care about the rest of the world, that’s about 18mm and 1.75kg. Not bad.

Better yet, it packs Haswell chips and Intel Iris graphics, faster SSD storage and a Thunderbolt 2 port. It’s also $200 cheaper than its predecessor – prices start at $1,299. The basic configuration is a 2.4GHz Core i5 dual-core with 4GB RAM. Battery life is said to be 9 hours and it should be up to 90 percent faster than the old one, thanks to Haswell. New ac wireless is on board as well.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999 and gets the same $200 price cut. It will ship with Iris Pro graphics or GeForce GT750M discrete graphics. The bigger one should hold its battery for 8 hours and comes with PCIe flash, 802.11ac and Thunderbolt 2. The basic configuration comes with 2GHz quad core Core i7, 8GB of RAM, Iris Pro graphics and 256 GB SSD.

We couldn't come up with any puns, they really seem nice and the price cut is not bad, although they're still not cheap, but aftere all they are MacBook Pros.
