9 Takeaways From Apple's Latest Product Launch


New MacBook Pros

The retina display has officially evolved to the MacBook Pro line. With 13-inch and 15-inch options, the MacBook Pro line received amped up hardware and a lower starting price point, beginning at $1,299 and $1,999 respectively. The 13-inch version weighs less than 3.5 pounds and is loaded with a fourth-generation Intel Haswell dual-core processor, while the 15-inch has the same quad-core processor. The 13-inch Pro offers 4- and 8-GB options for onboard memory, while the 15-inch device comes with 8- and 16-GB options. Additionally, both versions are capable of up to 512-GB storage. Both MacBook Pros operate on Mavericks OS and, as with any new iOS or Mavericks product, will come preloaded with the new iLife and iWork suites.
