Apple is looking to launch the 13-inch Retina MacBook either this September or early October

Apple is expected to release a 13-inch next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina display this fall.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI, who provided the tip to Apple Insider, Apple is looking to launch the 13-inch Retina MacBook either this September or early October. Kuo has already correctly predicted that Apple would axe the 17-inch MacBook Pro and instead sell the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display along with a previous-generation without Retina.

The 13-inch next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina display is expected to feature 2560 x 1600 resolution, a thinner body than the 15-inch version, no optical disc drive (solid-state flash memory storage only), Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics, and an Intel Ivy Bridge processor with speeds over 2 GHz.

Kuo said Apple didn't reveal the new product at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this week because "of a low yield rate" as well as challenges with assembly.

Apple unveiled a number of new MacBooks at WWDC, including new 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs, new 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros (without Retina display) and a 15.4-inch 2880 x 1800 display high-end laptop.

Thinner than the 15"?

The 15" is just a few millimeters thicker than the Macbook Air at its thickest point. I will be very impressed if this thing is thinner than the 15" model because the 15" model is already incredibly thin.

I'm glad Apple is pushing the envelope on displays. I'm so tired of crap 720p displays on 15" LCDs.

Yup, we all owe Apple a great big than you for raising the bar on this, for phones, tablets, now laptops too. This one looks nice, I love a 13 inch laptop. Not too big to easily carry, not to small to get serious work done. 13 is just right.
