New iMacs, 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display rumoured for September 2012
Reports on the Internet suggest that Apple may introduce a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina Display and will also update its desktop computers, the iMacs.
MacRumors reported KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has who has reported apples product lineup for the second half of the year. The report not only speaks of the update to the Mac but also of new iPods that we reported earlier.
The claim that the new 13-inch MacBook Pro will make an appearance later this year may be true as the device has been seen listed in benchmark score sheets.
Kuo’s report on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Retina Display says, “We think consumers who initially planned to purchase the 13-inch MacBook Pro and Air will turn to the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro instead because it has an attractive panel, its price is similar to MacBook Pro and it has a better balance between power consumption and form factor. However, as supply is limited due to panel and assembly yield rate issues, shipment of the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro won’t be able to satisfy demand. And we think consumers’ budgets will transfer to new iOS products after Apple launches them, which suggests that overall MacBook shipments will not grow meaningfully on the 13” Retina MacBook Pro.”
Apple launched the 15-inch MacBook Pro at WWDC 2012. You can read the details of the system here. If you are interested in picking up the 15-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro, you can take a close look at the device here.
The 13-inch MacBook pro wont be the only device getting a facelift this year. Apple’s desktop computers, the iMacs too will see an update. Whether the desktop computers will receive Retina Displays is a far-fetched dream but what’s the harm in hoping?
