I just played with effects in Photoshop in hope of proving this was shopped. Unfortunately, it looks very real and some details like the fact that the label SKU (bottom right) and weight (2.06kg instead of 2.04kg) are slightly different make it look real .
I'd like to be proved this is an elaborate fake, but it's not looking good. Perhaps Apple would release only a redesigned 15" and keep the current 13" for a generation until the 13" MBA finally replaces it, kind of like the white MacBook that they kept alongside the Aluminium MacBook introduced in 2008.
Or maybe they trolled everyone...
I know people shouldn't have gotten their hopes up since Apple never promised anything, but...it's pretty disappointing if this is just another spec bump Macbook year, which it seems this may be.
Do you know how easy that is to fake? I could do that in Photoshop in 10 minutes.
I got the picture from another chinese forum called "weiphone."
I really hope the picture is fake too because i really want a quad core 13 inch laptop...
Friend inside Apple in the United States has been determined to tell me, and showed me a printed configure a single photo. 13-inch PRO will have an Ivy 2.5G I5 processor, 1600 DDR3 memory, is still exactly the same as the 1280X800 resolution, appearance, and the MD313! 15 and 13 almost, so look forward to the thinning of the retina friends wash sleep, do not wait. Originally I was looking forward to the retina of the new PRO, it now appears, hey. . . . . . . . . . . In addition, I did not understand how several people actually said 13 PRO resolution standard is 1440X900. See you is not used 13PRO this man do not trouble in reply. In order to popularize next to you, I Quguan network cut a the 13PRO configuration of Figure you look at it.
I'm no expert on this sort of thing, but who's to say the original photo wasn't high quality, they made the adjustments and then decreased the quality to hide the changes?
This would be a pretty disappointing upgrade after all the hype but then again, all the reports have only discussed the 15" MBP. If nothing else, at least the specs in the picture include 2 USB 3.0 ports.
