Apple's flagship Retina MacBook Pro line of computers are getting a little bit more value for the money. The 15-inch version of the Retina MacBook Pro is receiving a 0.1GHz speed boost on its quad-core processor and is remaining at the same price of $2,199 for the intro version.

The 13-inch version is now $200 cheaper than before and will set you back $1,499 for the base model which includes 128GB of sold-state storage. If you need 256GB, it'll set you back that $1,699.

It's not immediately apparent what has sparked Apple to cut the price of the 13-inch model and boost the specifications of the 15-inch model. Perhaps it's the slumping Mac sales or perhaps its the stock price that has been getting hammered lately. Either way, you can't say no to more value for your dollar.
