Apple Discontinues The 15-inch MacBook Pro

Apple has silently killed off the 15-inch MacBook Pro and is now strongly pushing towards the future with its more powerful slimmer and lighter Retina-equipped 13-inch and 15-inch MacBooks. People looking to get an affordably priced 15-inch MacBook Pro will have to turn to the refurbished and used market, while Apple has made efforts to lower the price point of the new 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro down to $1,999 from last year's $2,199 entry price. The 13-inch standard MacBook Pro is still being offered for purchase with year-old specs, and is now the only remaining Mac to come with an optical drive. But for an additional $100, you can get an up-to-date Retina model with a super fast PCIe-based 128GB of flash storage which can be a compromise for some.
