On Monday Apple introduced its next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Just days after reviewers of the biggest mainstream publications started post their opinions on the redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro, but some of them remain putting off by the $2,200 entry price.

Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed these rumors partly when he said at the D10 conference in May that the company might kill off Ping but vowed to add more social integration into its products. Ping is still active, but sources say that the social network will be redacted this fall and replaced by deeper Twitter and Facebook integration.
Apple confirmed that its CEO Tim Cook sent an e-mail to a Facebook group page dedicated to the Mac Pro on Monday and said that the company is indeed "working on something really great" for 2013, allaying current Mac Pro owners' fears that the desktop has reached its end of life.
The slightly updated Mac Pro presented by Apple at WWDC on Monday wasn't the significant revamp.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI, whose name and expectations we’ve already mentioned in the previous report, also believes that Apple will discontinue its 17-inch MacBook Pro this year, and might even ax the Pro lineup entirely in favor of the "new MacBook" in 2013. He expects that only the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros will receive updates.
The first product on the list, part number MC414, is described, as "K31 Best" would represent a new AirPort Express. The next group of part numbers includes a pair of "D2" machines with prices above AU$2000 and AU$3000 respectively, and these parts could represent new 15-inch MacBook Pro models.
