9to5Mac reports that it has received an initial set of leaked model numbers for products expected to be released at next week's Worldwide Developers Conference.
The first series of codes that we have received are:

MD711LL/A -- Better -- USA

MD712LL/A -- Best - USA

MD760LL/A -- Better - USA

MD761LL/A -- Best - USA
While the identities of the products corresponding to the four model numbers is unknown, the pattern showing two sets of two models suggests that they may be either MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro models at two different screen sizes, corresponding to Apple's current stock configurations. Apple's non-Retina MacBook Pro is currently offered in only a single stock configuration at the larger 15-inch size, suggesting that these model numbers may not represent that line.

A second set of model numbers have also leaked, but it is unclear to what products they refer:
ME177LL/A -- Better -- USA

ME182LL/A -- Best -- USA

ME918LL/A -- Good -- USA
A notebook refresh is expected to the hardware highlight of WWDC, although Apple is likely to introduce a number of new products once accessories and configuration options are accounted for.

9to5Mac also notes that, beyond the notebooks, supplies of the Mac Pro and Mac mini are also somewhat constrained, although not to the same level as seen for notebooks. As a result, desktop updates may come somewhat later in the year.

Hopefully the second set of model numbers are a new macbook Air range, and the first the retina macbook models

There better be a new Mac Pro with Thunderbolt, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, SATA III, BTO non-Xeon server processor options and a new chassis. C'mon Apple, get with it! Let's bring back the "pro" to WWDC. :)

Sign me up, for one of the 'Better' ones..

EDIT - Hold on... Is 'Best' the better one, or is 'Better' better than 'Best'....? If so I want the 'Best', if that is the better of the... Oh I give up! :confused:

The series of model numbers all start with ME or MD - currently the rMBP both 13 and 15 start with ME and MD.

I'm not a big power user to buy a Mac Pro, but even I'm excited to see if they release a new one!

I like the way some of you think!

Yes!
My intuition is a 17" MacBook Pro return. No more 13" MacBook Pros but a new retina line of 13"MacBook Airs.
How super exciting for this fangurl.
