Apple has increased the customization options for its MacBook Pro with Retina Display, now allowing the entry-level model to be tweaked with difference processors and storage. Originally, the $2,199 "base-spec" Retina MacBook Pro was fixed to a specific chip - the 2.3GHz quadcore Core i7 - and 256GB of SSD storage, with only flexibility in how much RAM was included. Now, though, Apple has opened things up for more options.

The month of September may very well be one of some blockbuster releases for Apple, with a brand new iMac and the 13-inch version of the Retina MacBook Pro prepped for release alongside rumored mobile devices galore.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: July 23, 2012

This morning it's a time of easing - but perhaps before the storm, if you know what I mean. It appears that you'll be able to order a MacBook Pro with Retina Display with delivery inside two weeks. On the other hand, the Google Nexus 7 is all but sold out across the whole entire earth! The Canon EOS M is up for pre-order and supplies are already racking up short. There's a transparent Nintendo 3DS XL out there somewhere on the planet, but the company isn't budging on sales.

Retina MacBook and Air units get first software update

Apple has released a software update for 2012 MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs that fixes some issues with increased CPU power usage. Of course, we're still not entirely clear what is causing the CPU to use more power than it should in some cases (and Apple apparently isn't interested elaborating), but whatever the issue was, it's been fixed. The software update also "improves compatibility with some USB devices" in addition to fixing the CPU power problems.

Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch appears in Geekbench

This afternoon several benchmarks have appeared in the greater archives of Geekbench (a system we also use for computer reviews) which show a brand new Apple MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. This is different from the current model 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display we've already reviewed in that, one, of course it has a different size display, and two, that it has a significantly lower score in Geekbench than we got - a total of 7806 compared to our 15-incher's 12970. Of course it's all relative, and the important part is the fact that this device may well exist.

iPad reportedly getting hardware tweaks but no new model

In a relatively unheard of - or unspoken of move, at least, on Apple's part, the iPad has been reported as making some changes to the current hardware that makes up the iPad 3. This 3rd generation iPad (with Retina display) will supposedly be getting a slightly thinner chassis as well as a lighter design overall. It will also be getting a larger camera lens hole, though no word has been spread quite yet on if the actual camera will be affected.
