According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI, who provided the tip to
, 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.

RE: Super High Resolutions?

Actually, gaming is the best benefit I can think of. The dpi is so high at typical laptop viewing distance, it's overkill. It's not like a tablet or a phone which you can easily pull up to your eyes to get a closer look.
The problem with 1920x1080 for gaming (in general, but mostly on a laptop) is that it's too many pixels. Unless you have a high-end video card, you're going to suffer from poor framerates. The obvious solution is to lower the resolution to say 1280x720, but that leads to resampling and a blurry image since it still needs to be displayed on a 1920x1080 screen. Unless you can cut the resolution exactly in half. But half of 1920x1080 is 960x540. Way too low for any modern game.
Half of 2560x1600 is 1280x800. That's adequate for a game. So you get the best of both worlds - high resolution 2D display, and decent gaming performance with a typical 3D video card without a blurry resampled image in games.
