Apple Insider reports Apple is working on a 12" MacBook with a Retina-class display. No exact details are mentioned, other than that the display is said to be on par with the high-resolution panel in the MacBook Pro Retina, which offers a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
Expected to be introduced in 2014, this new laptop will reportedly still use an Intel processor.
According to Kuo, the new MacBook is expected to "redefine laptop computing once again following the milestone created by the MacBook Air."
Despite speculation that Apple could introduce a notebook powered by its custom A-series chips found in the iPhone and iPad, Kuo does not expect that the new 12-inch MacBook will run on an A-series chip. Instead, he has predicted that the new MacBook will feature a traditional Intel CPU.
The analyst also revealed that Apple is working on a new sixth-generation iPad with a higher pixel-per-inch count than the existing 9.7-inch iPad with Retina display. Contrary to recent rumors, he doesn't expect Apple to launch a 12-inch iPad next year.
