MacBook Pro Haswell refresh tipped for October launch

Apple, Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

macbook-pro-retina-top.jpgThis year’s impressive MacBook Air has been given Intel’s Haswell processor guts, and now all eyes turn to the Daddy of OS X laptops, the MacBook Pro, as to when it is its turn to get the upgrade. The latest reports suggest that the updated line may land as soon as October, as part of Apple’s annual Autumn showcase.

China Times are reporting supply chain sources that are gearing up in preparation of manufacture of the new machines, with the good news being the suggestion that despite the spec boost, the line will retain its current (admittedly expensive) pricing structure.

Intel’s Haswell chip proved a significant boost to the MacBook Air line (as you can read for yourself in our full review), considerably boosting the laptops battery life and graphics performance. With 4K support also included with Haswell, could we see a 4K Thunderbolt Display also launch?

All eyes will be on Apple this Autumn, with the company expected to launch a new iPhone 5S smartphone alongside a new budget smartphone offering, as well as these new laptop computers.
