While most expected the new 13-inch MacBook with Retina display to be out much later this year, one analyst believes it could be in the hands of Apple lovers everywhere as soon as September or October, MacRumors reports. Those who have their own MacBook that may be a bit out of order can skip the new investment and get MacBook repair to get their device going again.
In a report on the MacBook, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo's said he believes it will be out earlier that initial reports indicated, but he believes there might be a muted release due to tight supplies and customer preference.
"We think consumers who initially planned to purchase the 13-inch MacBook Pro and Air will turn to the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro instead because it has an attractive panel, its price is similar to MacBook Pro and it has a better balance between power consumption and form factor," he said in the report. "However, as supply is limited due to panel and assembly yield rate issues, shipment of the 13" Retina MacBook Pro won’t be able to satisfy demand."
For those who wait for the new Retina display device, there are some pretty cool features. One source, 9to5Mac, said the new MacBook will have a very quick upgrade time for installing and updating Mountain Lion.
