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.

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.
