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.

RE: Higher Resolutions

i second this. i've wanted to force-choke the execs who have conspired to keep such pitifully low resolutions on the "high-end" laptops. i mean, there's even 17"+ laptops with LOWER than 1080p screens--which i can only assume are intended to be sold to the same people who subscribe to reader's digest: large format.

i've even had one idiot tell me that i'd be happy with a lower resolution screen if i didn't wear my glasses while using it.
