Apple early Wednesday announced that the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is now a bit faster--and cheaper, to boot. The updated laptops boast speedier processors and lower price tags.

The newly updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display starts at A$1649 with 128GB of flash storage, and A$1849 for a 2.6GHz processor with 256GB of flash storage. And the newly updated 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display gains a 2.4GHz quad-core processor, with an option to upgrade to a 2.7GHz quad-core processor with 16GB of RAM for A$2499.

Apple also announced that it's dropping the price on the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash storage to A$1549.

Just Tuesday, CEO Tim Cook said at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference that Apple is always eager to find ways to drive prices down as it improves its supply chain management.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
