The Macbook pro line has been updated by Apple and this has led to improved specifications, including lowered price tags and speedier Intel processors.
Along with other improvements, the capacity of entry level memory has been doubled by Apple in the Retina Macbook Pros. This move is highly appreciated. It is recommended that the buyers of Apple Notebook max out the RAM on their devices when they purchase, so that it helps in future-proofing it. With extra RAM, the OS X Yosemite will be able to run more smoothly. However, there might be some more Mac updates this year. Events are expected later this fall, like iWatch or maybe Yosemite. A redesign of Macbook Pro Chassis can also be seen, which has not changed since the year 2012.

Along with that there would be standard RAM of 8GB, doubled up as compared to the last gen notebook, flash storage of 128 to 512GB etc. The machine can also be upgraded to GHz i7 processor with memory of 16GB and can be expanded up to flash storage of 1TB.
The larger fifteen inch model has a 2.2GHz quad-core i7 processore, memory of 16GB and flash storage of 1TB. Both the 15 inch as well as 13 inch Retina Macbook Pros come along with Intel Iris Pro Graphics. However, in the 15 inch model, there is an option of additional NVIDIA GeForce graphics.
The price of the 13 inch Macbook Pro starts at $1,299 and that of the 15 inch model starts at $1,999. The starting price of the 13 inch Macbook Pro has been dropped to $1,088. The availability of all is seen on the retail stores as well as website of Apple.
