  1. That wouldn’t make much sense considering a decade of consistent product cycles.. They’ve always done a refresh a quarter..

    iMacs refreshed May 2011 (11 mos. cycle)
    MB Airs refreshed in July 2011 (11 mos. cycle)
    MB Pro’s refreshed late October (10.5 mod cycle)

    That would put:
    iMacs (anytime)
    MB Airs (late June/early July)
    MB Pro’s: Late September

    1. Apple does need a consistent supply of those New Retina displays.
      You do not want any hiccups that might interrupt the delivery of the new machines.
      Ship when all I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed. 😉
