Today a note has come through from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI, an analyst group who suggests that a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display might only be three months away.

Opera: No comment on Retina but “will utilize every option” to be best browser

Opera has declined to confirm it is making a version of its browser suited to Apple's Retina Display on the new MacBook Pro, but told SlashGear that it "will utilize every option" to be the best on the market. With Opera 12 launching today, we asked Norwegian firm Opera Software if, like Google's Chrome team, it was working on an updated version of the app to suit the super-high-resolution Retina screen. Opera unsurprisingly played it coy, but dropped a few hints along the way.

Retina MacBook Pro teardown reveals new heights of user-inaccessibility

Retina MacBook Pro teardown reveals new heights of user-inaccessibility

Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display has gone through the traditional gadget rite of passage, the ceremonial teardown, and it's clear that a compact form-factor demands a compromise in repairability.

Next-Gen MacBook Pro with Retina eyes-on [Video]

Apple's new next-gen MacBook Pro with Retina Display was the star of WWDC 2012 this morning, and we couldn't want to check out the 2880 x 1800 15.4-inch screen for ourselves. Right now, that's all we can do: Apple has its new MacBook Pro under glass for the moment, meaning we'll have to wait a little while longer before we can go fully hands-on. But one thing's for sure: this is a super-slick notebook. Update: Video after the cut!
