In addition to the provisions concerning the debut in October of iPad Mini with Retina Display , the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has developed some speculation this time related to the product line MacBook Pro , considering the subject of an update that will be presented with a very good chance at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
According to the analyst, that is an upgrade to the latest technology, especially with the debut ofIntel Haswell that will replace the models with Ivy Bridge architecture employed for the realization of the MacBook Pro models currently in the catalog. Intel also recently announced that the Haswell processors will be officially presented next June 3 , the day before the 2013 edition of the Computex Taipei. The update should, probably, going to renew the GPU sector, especially in view of the availability of new solutions AMD and NVIDIA announced in recent weeks.
Kuo claims that there will be no particular stylistic changes to the setting of the systems and that Apple will continue to keep the MacBook Pro models equipped with optical drive to the next line of MacBook Pro Retina systems, without the DVD player. "In emerging markets, where the penetration of the network is not yet so advanced, there is still a high demand for optical media," said Kuo.
The analyst, which excludes the possibility of the debut of a MacBook Air with Retina display,believes that the new models will be delivered by the end of the second quarter, shortly after the official launch. Retina MacBook Pro, however, will be updated later in the year the year because of the low yields of the panels with high resolution.
