Analysts Say We Will See New Retina Macs In June
When newly redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro was seen as a rumor, earlier this month, many online reports surfaced that Apple had a slimmed down, all-new MacBook Pro sporting a Retina display, Ivy Bridge, and speedy USB 3.
Later, some reports said that Apple’s new MacBook Airs and iMacs will both likely include super-high resolution Retina displays.
Finally came, the reports that talked about Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June would be expected for at least the unveiling of the new slim MacBook Pro. However, at this point, a gradual roll out of Retina iMacs and Airs following the Pros would not be seen as much of a surprise. Usually, Apple rolls out new Mac features such as higher-res displays gradually.
Following those reports, The Wall Street Journal published a story on last weekend, in which, it quoted analysts who now all seem to agree that we will see upgraded Macs this summer. Ben Reitzes of Barclays Capital claimed the new Retina Mac lineup would debut at WWDC in June:
Reitzes said it is likely the Mac line will feature the retina-display technology used in the iPad, as well as the new Ivy Bridge quad-core processors from Intel Corp. (INTC) He also estimates that Apple’s new operating-system upgrade, called Mountain Lion, and the new MacBook Airs should be on the market before the first Ultrabook laptops with Microsoft Corp.’s (MSFT) Windows 8 operating system hit the shelves in the fall… “We believe recent data reflect a pause ahead of new products, which we believe will be released this quarter in June,” according to Reitzes, who has an overweight rating and $750 target price on Apple’s stock.
