Now that Apple has confirmed its October 16th event there are a lot of rumors about the products that it is expected to unveil. Apart from the new iPads it is expected that the company is going to show off the new iMacs and perhaps even the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display that we have heard so much about over the past few months. A new report suggests that this notebook will enter production in December which means that it may not hit the market until early next year.
Citing people familiar with the matter The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple’s suppliers are ramping up work to mass produce the 12-inch Macbook with Retina display. This notebook is expected to have a fanless design which would make it thinner and lighter than existing MacBooks. It would be a new addition to Apple’s MacBook lineup which consists of 11-inch and 13-inch Air models apart from several Pro models.
Even though the MacBook Air lineup has been around for quite a while now it has not been refreshed with a Retina display. It is believed that instead of upgrading the Air lineup Apple would release a completely new notebook which brings the Retina display, but so far the company has not revealed any such plans.
The possibility exists that Apple may talk about this notebook at the event on October 16th even though it won’t be able to hit the market until next year, if WSJ is to be believed.
