Following up the MacBook Air refresh, senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller leapt straight into the MacBook Pro line, including a new “next generation” model that seems to match the rumors we’ve been hearing lately.
Apple has just announced a refresh of the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro on the heels of similarly updated MacBook Air models.
Like their thinner siblings, the MacBook Pros are also powered by third-generation Ivy Bridge processors running up to 2.7GHz quad-core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz, but introduce a new generation Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics chip. USB 3.0 is also on board for the refresh.
The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro runs $1199 or $1499, while the 15-inch model starts at $1799 and tops out a $2199, both available today.
