Report: MacBook Pro and MacBook Air to be Updated in June 2013

DigiTimes, (they of the iffy track-record), is reporting that Apple has told their Taiwanese suppliers that both the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lineups will see revisions in June 2013.

MacRumors:

As noted by our buyers guide, this would put the updates in line within the expected timeframes.

DigiTimes’ sources also reveal that the new MacBook Airs won’t have any major external design changes, but will feature a “new processor platform.”

The sources said that the MacBook Air for 2013 will feature a new processor platform, but its design will not see any major changes.

Ultrabook manufacturers are also said to be concerned that Apple “is likely to reduce the prices for its existing MacBook Airs before the launch of the new models.” A move such as that by Apple would be unusual though, as Apple rarely drops prices on existing models before a refresh.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an excellent track record when it comes to predictions, outlined his expectations for Apple’s 2013 plans for the MacBook lineups back in June. He sees the MacBook Pro consolidating into one hardware line, all Retina Display models.

The new line will use Intel’s new Haswell chips, which are expected somewhere between March and June of 2013.  The new chjpset will include CPU performance boosts, as well as an integrated GPU with double the performance of the current one.
