    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.

    I always wonder if Apple sticks with its traditional release cycle of 9 month for MBPs

    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:

    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.

    cMBPs will be gone soon. They will be forced to extinction soon.

    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
