After the announcement and subsequent release of Apple's new Retina MacBook Pros with updated processors and faster storage, the company has apparently discontinued the 15-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro which leaves only the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro alongside the current line of Retina MacBook Pros.

macbook_line_oct13 The 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro being sold is of the exact same model and specification that was introduced in 2012, featuring no significant changes aside from OS X Mavericks coming pre-installed on the system. Priced at $1,199, the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro is now just $100 cheaper than the Retina version. Apple has been long expected to discontinue its standard MacBook Pros in favor of an all Retina lineup and with a $200 discount on its entry-level Retina models, pricing is nearly on par with its former non-Retina offerings.

Apple today unveiled new 13 and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros, which have been updated with Intel’s latest processors for enhanced performance and significantly improved battery life. The entry-level 13-inch version is available for $1,299 while the entry-level 15-inch model is available for $1,999. Both models are available today from Apple's Online Store and at its various retail locations.

Old tech has to eventually disappear.

Don't tell that to the iPad 2. :)

Also sad to see this (But I knew it was inevitable). I went to the trouble of sourcing a 2011 MBPro with Matte screen just under a year ago. Fitted with a 512Gb SSD and 8GB RAM it is very fast indeed - should see me through many more years.

And the best bits?
1. Non-refelctive screen
2. FW800 and Ethernet without adapters etc.
3. DVD drive (for the rare times I need it - or can be replaced with a SSD too!)

*Sigh* I really wanted my next MacBook Pro to be an updated 15" non-retina. It feels like 2006 all over again.

I'm just going to put money aside for a base Mac Pro then. I've finally grown out of the consumer market. :(
