Rumor: Apple will stop manufacturing 13 “MacBook Pro without Retina display this year




Apple stops in the second half of this year with the production of the old 13 “MacBook Pro, according to Digitimes. The laptop will be permanently replaced by the thinner 13” MacBook Pro with Retina display. Previously, Apple stopped with the old 15 “MacBook Pro.

If the production is indeed stops in the second half of 2014, as DigiTimes claims based on his Taiwanese sources, that is no surprise. Apple had only a single 13 “MacBook Pro model without Retina display in its range, which moreover do not upgrade was last year and still have to do. Thereby with an old Intel Core i5-3210m of the Ivy Bridge generation Intel Ivy Bridge has been to follow the economical Haswell platform., the “old” MacBook Pro is also not prominently advertised on Apple’s website.

Apple’s old MacBook Pro’s will completely replace models with Retina displays, was already clear from the price cut of the new generation of MacBook Pros, in October last year. Then went the 15 “MacBook Pro without Retina display. Apple stopped in 2012 total 17” MacBook Pros.

DigiTimes has a proven track record when it comes to early publishing about Apple’s plans, but the Taiwanese newspaper is not always good: in some of the cases, DigiTimes wrong. Some cases where Digitimes had the first field of Apple rumors at the right end was about the iPad Mini and iPhone 5c . The newspaper reported in both cases, nearly a year before the first of the new products. DigiTimes gets his info from Apple’s suppliers, such as the makers of chips and displays for the company from Cupertino.
