    Anyone have a general idea if you think we'll see the new Haswell offer this year? Last I read up on it they were speculating an iMac refresh in the spring but a laptop version was late summer, maybe fall?
    Buying my fully loaded 15" Retina MBPro this year, I may wait if I have an idea that it could happen? Thanks, Rob

    It is not a question of if, but when, and that is around Summer 2013, when the mobile Haswell chips will be released.

    As they did in the past, they probably will.

    Im gonna predict September for the Haswell Macs. for the following reasons:

    1) June (read early-July) is when Haswell is expected to ship from Intel. This means that only then, Apple can start assembling the Macs with Hasweel, and then it will take another month for Apple to ship the Macs to the stores.

    2)Mid-year is when probably we are gonna get a new iPhone and possibly a new OS X. So Apple is gonna focus sales momentum on the iPhone. Moreover, Apple already considers a OS upgrade to be a super improvment, so they gonna market the same Mac with a new OS first, and only later release upgraded harrdware.
