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: Super High Resolutions?

What you said only makes sense if the number of pixels in window elements scale with changes in resolution. For example, a taskbar that goes from 72 pixels in height at 1280x720 to 108 pixels in height at 1920x1080. The taskbar would take up 10% of the screen in both cases, but a JPG would take up less screen percentage on 1920x1080.


Incorrect. Elements in OS X scale up with resolution in the rMBP. It works like iOS with the iPhone 4 and iPad, graphical assets and text remain the same size as with the prior lower res models but the number of pixels for those elements quadruples.

It isn't like everything on the retina MBP is tiny all of a sudden. Windows does have this issue at the moment though. Microsoft should get this functionality in eventually since PC notebook displays will catch up at some point: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6008/windows-8-on-th...
