Concept Imagines What a Thinner 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro Might Look Like

Designer Martin Hajek, who often creates renderings of upcoming devices based on rumors, has mocked up what a thinner 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with some MacBook-style design elements could look like.

The design, which also includes a conceptual version of "macOS," features smaller side bezels and a much thinner chassis, one that's not quite as thin as the Retina MacBook but much thinner than the Retina MacBook Pro today.

Hajek's slimmed-down Retina MacBook Pro concept comes amid rumors Apple is working on "ultra-thin" 13 and 15-inch "MacBooks." That rumor suggests new MacBooks are being developed that feature a design similar to the existing 12-inch MacBook that are also thinner than the existing MacBook Air.

The rumor, which is the second we've heard about thinner notebooks, does not make it clear if the MacBooks will belong to the MacBook line, the MacBook Pro line, or the MacBook Air line. Because the fate of the MacBook Air line is in question and the MacBook line already has a 12-inch MacBook, it's entirely possible the rumor refers to thinner MacBooks that are in development as part of the MacBook Pro family.

It is not clear when these thinner 13 and 15-inch mystery MacBooks will launch if they are indeed in development, but rumors suggest they will debut at the end of the second quarter or in the third quarter, pointing towards an introduction in the summer or fall months.

The all new 15" Macbook. Lighter, thinner, slower, less storage, less battery life. And it's just $2699. Can't innovate my ass.

Oh god no, please no. I need my 15" to be a quad core i7 and please 32GB of RAM this time. No one needs a smaller MacBook Pro with worse specs.

Ooh I hope it's thinner. The thickness is the biggest issue I have with my current retina Macbook Pro ;)

Imagine the whoops and cheers when it's announced that it uses Sandy Bridge processors, starts with 4 GB RAM, has a 5400 RPM hard drive, no discrete GPU, half the ports, but it's 1mm THINNER! And only $200 more than the previous model! Take my money now!

The placement of that keyboard is absolutely horrendous. Luckily this is just a mockup. I hope Apple does not go with a design like this. Yikes.
