Apple rumored to be releasing Retina MacBook Air and low-price iMac

Apple’s iMac computer lineup is gorgeous, sleek and powerful, but the models that make up the iMac family are very pricey. The MacBook Air lineup is thin, well-designed and quite capable, but there is no ultra-high resolution option like there is in the MacBook Pro family. According to a new report from an extremely reliable source, Apple is righting both of those wrongs in 2014. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a massive research note to clients on Thursday morning, and it was picked up by MacRumors. 

In an extensive research note covering Apple’s product roadmap for 2014, KGI Securities Ming Chi Kuo reiterated expectations that Apple is working on a ultra slim 12″ MacBook Air but also revealed a new low-cost iMac in the works.  Kuo’s predictions for the 12″ MacBook Air match what was leaked in March from a reliable Chinese forum source. The new 12″ MacBook Air will “redefine notebook user experience”. Besides the 12″ MacBook Air, Kuo reiterates his earlier claim that a “low-priced” version of the iMac is coming. The new model will help compete with companies such as HP and Lenovo as well as grow market share in Asia.
