As you may remember, not too long ago Apple used to offer the MacBook Air, the MacBook and the MacBook Pro. Apple currently only offers the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro, but one analyst believes that Apple will re-introduce two new “MacBook” computers, this time with Retina Display support.
“We expect Apple (US) to unveil a new MacBook series independent from the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June,” Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities said on Friday. Kuo believes the MacBook will come priced at $1,199 without a disc drive, with SDD and HDD options, a Retina Display and larger battery capacity. Kua argued that the device will be “lighter and slimmer than [the] MacBook Pro, with equal computing power.” It seems to us Apple might be better off simply calling these new machines the “MacBook Pro” and complementing it with the MacBook Air. What would be the point of offering a bulkier MacBook Pro otherwise?
