It has long been rumored that Apple will eventually announce a new redesigned MacBook with a Retina Display, but up to now those rumors haven’t come true, but that isn’t to say they won’t come true, with a well-known analyst today predicted that Apple will soon release a 12 inch version of the MacBook with Retina Display.
Ming-Chi Kuo is said to have a higher resolution than the current Retina Display model, and will be both lighter and slimmer than the MacBook Air, stating:
We expect the unprecedented 12” model will boast both the portability of the 11” model, and productivity of the 13” model. The high resolution display will also offer the outstanding visual experience of the Retina MacBook Pro. The offering will likely be lighter and slimmer than the existing MacBook Air to further highlight ease of portability in the cloud computing era. We think the form factor will showcase a much improved clamshell structure, and that it will redefine laptop computing once again following the milestone created by the MacBook Air.
At the moment nothing has been released yet, but it does link with an earlier rumor we have previously heard that stating Apple will release a version with a 2304 x 1440 pixel resolution, however there’s no exact hardware specifications as of yet.
Hopefully we should hear more official stuff soon.
