The dust has settled. Google just had its turn to showcase its latest innovations at Google I/O 2013. Now, it's Apple's chance to fire back.

And with WWDC 2013 just around the corner, speculations are at its highest. According to KGI securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's firepower will include updates to its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air line-up. Apple's biggest gun, however, is the move to Intel's Haswell processors.

In a report earlier today, he writes, "We expect the new MacBook, featuring an upgrade to Intel’s (US) Haswell processor, will be in the spotlight for Apple at the upcoming WWDC from June 10."

Ming-Chi Kuo prophetically adds that Apple's MacBook Pro will be slimmer and will sport a 1080p full HD camera at the front, which is expected to improve the Facetime experience. Kuo's wild prediction doesn't stop there. He further speculates that the new MacBook Air will feature dual built-in microphones that will deliver clear voice quality.

Finally, Apple's shift to SSD is also expected to rise. "We estimate the market share of  MacBook with SSD to rise from 45% in 2012 to 64% in 2013, far ahead of the industry’s 15-20%. We also expect SSD penetration to continue to trend up, with SSD eventually replacing conventional hard disk drive and optical disc drive," Kuo said.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
