MacBook Pro (Mid 2014): Minor update offers slightly better CPU performance

James Galbraith | Aug. 5, 2014
Last week, Apple updated its Retina MacBook Pro line, and while the new models are identical on the outside to their 13- and 15-inch predecessors, released late last year, the "Mid 2014" models feature processors that are just a little bit faster. As modest as these internal improvements are, they do provide more performance bang for the buck.
