It has been a few months since Apple released the Haswell powered Macbook Air. However, there were no details about the Macbook Pros, powered by Intel’s Haswell chip. A new report has emerged from Chinese shores that claims the new Retina Macbook Pros powered by Haswell chip wont ship until October. A few analysts also report that the upgraded Macbooks will be launched before September ends.
There were rumors in the past that pointed towards a shortage of the display panels as the cause of the delay. Regarding the pricing, it has been revealed that the device will be sold in a similar price range as older Macbooks but we cannot be sure at the moment as the prices of the high-resolution LCD panels and solid states drives are falling. On the other hand, DRAM has seen an upward trend in terms of pricing, which is why many people believe that the price of the new Macbook Pros will remain the same.
I remind the readers to take this as a rumor and not official news. Nothing is official until it is announced from the Cupertino headquarters, even if the rumors are from legit sources.
