Apple expected to offer 12-inch Retina MacBook in 2014


Apple is set to hold a conference in just over a week to announce their latest line of devices that is expected to include the iPad 5 and the new iPad mini, but there are also rumors surfacing about what we can expect when it comes to the newest MacBook.

According to reports, next year Apple fans will be introduced to a 12-inch Retina MacBook that will feature a new design that we are not yet familiar with.


In a research note shared by 9to5Mac, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will release a 12-inch Retina MacBook sometime in either the second or third quarter of 2014.

The report claims that the laptop will sport an entirely new design. However, the device isn’t termed as being a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, so it’s unclear if this might represent a new laptop category for the computer maker, or simply an upgrade to an existing model.

There are also rumors that Apple could be releasing a new MacBook with a cheaper price tag, but we won’t know for sure whether or not the rumors are true until the upcoming press conference.

In the meantime, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the latest rumors as we eagerly await the new line of Apple devices.
