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.

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.

They deserve the credit. While everyone else is cutting corners, Apple is pushing quality on displays, keyboards, trackpads, battery life, customer service, etc etc. This is why competition is good, even if you hate the company for whatever random reasons. :)

They deserve the credit.
Maybe. Or maybe they're just a one-trick pony:
Get ahold of and hog a resource you consider to be a killer spec. Sign deals that guarantee no-one else can get their paws on it for a couple of years. Proceed to market the hell out of it.
Sure it's a ballsy move, and
you can give Apple credit for taking (a huge) gamble... But I kinda disagree that the screen res decision falls in the same category with all the other stuff you mentioned (and with which I agree and add the unibody:)
Maybe I'm over-suspicious, but I view this as a "tactic" they learned from the iPod.
Go to Toshiba.
Sign a deal for a bucket-load of hard-drives.
Make sure the same contract says Toshiba is not allowed to sell to rival mp3 makers.
Monopolize the high-capacity mp3 market for years.
A lot of you may not know this, but yes: not only was there a mechanical hard-drive in those iPods, Toshiba was the only company on the planet making them that small.
Clever undoubtedly, but hardly a move that would (or could) spark competition.

- Hate to burst your bubble there but Apple (on the flip side) is continuing to rip people off despite their "quality". $200+ for 8GB RAM upgrade? (it's about $35-$55 on Newegg) Nevermind that DDR3 RAM is dirt-cheap right now, also what's up with two generation old graphics cards (Radeon 5xxx series) on the current Mac Pro line? And USB 3.0 started mass-adoption in 2011-ish so why is it now going to start appearing on the next Macbook line refresh? Sorry to say it but Apple is also guilty of cutting corners....
