I thought Haswell is for ultraportable laptop only but rMBP is not very ultraportable??? For some reasons retina display would overkill battery so Haswell is not going to save extra battery like 13/11" MBA :apple:

Haswell is for all laptops. rMBP will get it.

I reckon July/August, just in time for the Back to School buyers. Its a big market and apple would be crazy to miss it.
Tha'ts why Apple released the Haswell MBA. They know most of BTS buyers have low budget and get a MBA...

I don't expect rMBP until October. It has to be released along with Mavericks... It makes more sense... but who knows...

That does make sense I suppose. I hoping for August as I am starting a new university course in September and I will need a rMBP and I'd rather get one when it's newly released.

Okay, this is what I guess what's going to happen. Following the line of all rumors I would suggest Apple will quietly add their updated MacBook Pro Retina to the Apple Store, by the end of July or early August. The most major changes will be the new Haswell-processor, faster SSD and a Full HD-iSight-camera. I don't really think they will come up with a smaller design.

# I can't wait. I'm waiting for my replace my 2008 Mac book pro. It's on it's last leg and its battery needs replacing.
im in the same boat, battery is fine, but would like to upgrade. Also thinking of getting a refurb rMBP off apple for $2619(16gb ram, 768gb ssd)

The only reason they'd want to delay the MBPs is for Mavericks. However, this doesn't really make sense as Apple would missing out on a lot of summer sales, plus MBPs have often been released before the OS update in the past. Seriously, unless there's a persistent retina screen supply problem, there's no reason for Haswell rMBPs not to be released in July.

Yeah, but they need to sell the early 2013 rMBPs overstock... ;). Their strategy is working as expected because a lot of people are buying now... This also would mean the haswell rMBP could appear before october... :D

I know the feeling dude. Got the cash sat there waiting to get my 1st Mac which will be a Haswell rMBP instead of using a clapped out plastic Dell turd
