Apple to ship Haswell-powered MacBook Pro with Retina display in October, sources say

“New Retina MacBook Pros with Intel’s new Haswell processors could arrive even later than expected, in October, if the latest rumor is to be believed,” AppleInsider reports.

“The details were published this week by China Times, and highlighted by Macotakara on Friday,” AppleInsider reports. “That rumored date is later than well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities expects the new MacBook Pros to be introduced.”

AppleInsider reports, “He said in a note provided to AppleInsider this week that he expects MacBook Pros with Haswell to debut in mid-September.”

MacDailyNews Take: Bring ’em on!

(Now, if only there were MacBook Air with Retina display models, we’d be ordering today!)


  1. The only problem I have with the retina MP is that there is no “None Glare” option for retina models…It took Apple a while to give this option on 15″ MBPs in the past.

    It is a huge deal breaker for many who spend a lot of time in front of the screen and need a reflection/glare free screen.

      1. This is a privacy screen for straight head on veiwing angle- Not even close to Apple’s Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display custom option offered for 15″ MBPs

      2. Sure antiglare filters may reduce glare, but they make they screen look like crap. They are a disgrace to such a beautiful display. You’d be better off with a traditional 15″ MBP with with Hi-Res antiglare screen.

        That being said, I don’t think the glare on the new models is that bad. Yes it would be nice to see an antiglare option, but it wouldn’t keep me from purchasing one if antiglare wasn’t an option.

  2. So, one of Tim’s “great products in the pipeline” about to make its debut. Yay! Anyone around here ready to call out the CEO for his blatant incompetence and lying?

    1. You apparently and disingenuously. Because of course you can see the future and know all of Apple’s plans and/or don’t mind looking like a complete idiot when proven wrong and conveniently disappear at that point. Strike and then hide.

      1. IGZO was discussed two years ago and we are still waiting for its adoption across the board.

        Apple Cinema displays still sell with USB 2.0 and Thunderbolt 1.

        I won’t purchase out-dated technology from Apple. Tim Cook better deliver state of the art products ASAP.

    2. Jay has a point. It was understood that Intel would release the Haswell chip in 2013. If Tim Cook wanted to shake things up he would release MacBooks with IGZO displays.
