Apple Drops Prices on Older Mac Lineup

After Apple's 'Hello Again' event where the company announced three new MacBook Pro models, including two featuring the Touch Bar and Touch ID features, the company decided to quietly make the previous generation models much more affordable. These price reductions will start to take place when you decide to upgrade the storage of whatever Mac model you intend to purchase. The astonishing part is that the 512GB and 1TB SSD models for the MacBook Air, iMac, Mac Pro, Mac mini, and 2015 MacBook Pro are now priced up to $200 only

Unfortunately, it was only the MacBook Pro that has been updated to run the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, with the latest report suggesting that the new iMac models are going to be appearing next year. It has yet to be detailed what sort of internals to expect from these desktop machines, but consumers are going to be disappointed if Apple retains the Skylake family instead of opting towards the Kaby Lake chips.

Apple has also yet to update its Mac Pro lineup, which was introduced back in 2013 and still costs a large amount for running previous-generation hardware. While Mac products are built to last, consumers who are engaged in heavy-rendering applications will have to rely on Windows 10-powered machines as they are cheaper and also come with the latest hardware that reduces the time it takes to tackle heavy load tasks.

They are also more efficient, generate less heat and deliver more performance for their price tag. There's no update on the Mac mini either, which means that if you want to take advantage of the latest hardware, then you'll have to upgrade to the MacBook Pro lineup for now. If you want to see the price reductions, you can head down to Apple's website right now.
