Apple's annual developers conference, WWDC, is right around the corner. And analysts are already lining up to predict what products Apple will introduce.
Next week, a small army of tech journalists will descend on San Francisco for the annual Apple worldwide developers conference, or WWDC. Apple typically uses the event to roll out a new product or two – last year, for instance, it was OS X Lion and iCloud. Tickets for the 2012 WWDC are already sold out, although Apple has promised to post video from the keynote, a small consolation for diehard fans.
So hey, what does Apple have on tap this year? Almost certainly a rejiggered line of laptops. For months, rumors have swirled around a revamped version of the MacBook Pro, which hasn't seen a significant aesthetic overhaul for years. Signs point to a more svelte machine, with a high-resolution "retina display," and a next-generation processor. And over at CNET, Scott Stein, for one, says it's high time for a new MacBook.
