I was really hoping to get one before I start school in August, but that's not happening. So either I go for the new Air or take a chance for a couple of months with my old Macbook... But then I have the hassle of transferring everything /during/ school.

Is October the date? They used to have October events, but recently its been in June.

Any chance for July?

Last year was one of the few exceptions where they released the retina Macbook pro at wwdc. They usually release them october - november ish.

It is going to come out along Mavericks

Funny to see that realism only takes hold when people's hopes are dashed.

I'm still expecting to see a lot of 'but but they have to have them ready in time for back to school!" No, they don't. They have to release a complete, polished product.

I'm guessing October/November with the 10.9 release.

I wonder if they needed more time working with the Haswell processors to build a solid platform.

My guess is that they just had a lot of stuff already for WWDC and decided to put it off. They could've easily thrown in a Haswell CPU if they wanted (see Razer Blade 14"); on the positive side, perhaps they're doing more than just a spec bump and it'll be worthy of its own event. Hardly surprising, considering current rMBPs are already pretty solid for a first-gen device and it takes time to perfect retina technology.

EDIT: My guess is that they'll ship slightly before or alongside Mavericks, certainly not after its release.
