13-inch 'Retina Display' MacBook Pro to uncloak next Tuesday?
Unconfirmed notebook to join unconfirmed tablet at unconfirmed event
Today's Cupertinian rumeur du jour: a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display will share the stage at next week's introduction of the much-anticipated iPad mini – or whatever that shrunken fondleslab may be dubbed.
That is, of course, if there really is an event, as reported, on October 23 to introduce a svelter sibling of Apple's iPad. And if there really is, of course, a 7.85-inch iPad in the works.
The report of a smaller version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display appeared Sunday evening on 9to5Mac, which said that their info had come from "a consistently reliable source at a high-profile US retailer."
And, no, we didn't even bother calling Apple for comment. There's wasting one's time, and then there's wasting one's time in an utterly futile quest. ®
Is the impending appearance of a smaller Retina Display MacBook Pro not enough to sate your rumor hunger for today? Well then, how about a thinner iMac, with a redesign said to be of "epoch-making significance?"
Re: Epoch making?
In universally understood units, thats one dollop of resin to one smidge of hardener, as long as the ambient temperature is above ohh, nippy but below shitthatshot
My God, the Mayans knew the MacBook was coming!
1 part resin to 2 parts plasticiser if I remember correctly.
Re: Too many dongles.
I agree, I understand that this "is the future", but I don't need the future :P
Same with the Apple Maps thing, a friend said "Sure the data is a bit off, but it'll get better!" Awesome! But I need a map now.
Too many dongles.
Mac's have gone from an "all-in-one" to "lots of adapters needed."
It isn't the cost (galling though that is), its the fact that now you need a laptop bag instead of just picking up the computer and going. Going on holiday and want to use it to watch films? Pack your DVD drive and USB adapter and HDMI adapter, you external drive of films (because they don't fit on the little internal one)...
If it was "better" (such as flash replacing floppy) I'd understand it, but it isn't. If it was just an ultraportable Air, I'd understand it, but it isn't.
I know, its off topic regarding the 13" possibility, but I need to express my disgust.
