Apple tweaks MacBook Pro lineup

Apple's MacBook Pro laptop range has received a fresh upgrade, with new processors, GPUs and storage options across the board.

Apple has once again improved the specifications for its MacBook Pro laptop range, which will now boast faster processors and GPUs.

The 13in model now comes with a 2.4GHz Core i5 or 2.8GHz Core i7 CPU, which replaces the current 2.3GHz and 2.7GHz CPU options.

"With Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.5GHz, these processors allow the 13-inch MacBook Pro to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation," Apple boasts on its website.

Storage has also been upped on both 13in models, jumping from 320GB to 500GB and 500GB to 750GB, respectively. Pricing for the 13in MacBook Pro still starts at $1,399.

The 15in model, meanwhile, offers 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz i7 processors (up from 2.0GHz and 2.2GHz). Graphics have also been given a boost, courtesy of an AMD Radeon HD 6770M GPU (1GB GDDR5) or Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB of GDDR5 memory. The 2.2GHz version costs $2,099, with the 2.4GHz version going for $400 more.

The 17in MacBook Pro has received the same graphical boost as its premium 15in sibling, along with a 2.4GHz i7 dual-core CPU (up from 2.2GHz). Its RRP remains the same at $2889.
