Intel's delays in producing the new Broadwell series has meant Apple
has little they can do to upgrade the MacBook Pro or iMac until at
least "early 2015" ...

Apple May Push Back Launch of
Rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook Due to Broadwell Delays
Intel's continued Broadwell delays may cause Apple to
push back the release of its rumored 12-inch MacBook,
reports Taiwan's Economic Daily News.

According to the site, the device will not ship until
late 2014 or early 2015 as it is expected to use Intel's
14-nanometer Broadwell chips, which have been delayed
numerous times. The most recent rumors have suggested
the U series Broadwell chips designed for use in Apple's
MacBooks may not ship until February of 2015.

Along with the 12-inch MacBook, Intel's Broadwell delays
are likely having an impact on several of Apple's
planned product releases. The first chips designed for
Apple products are not expected to begin shipping until
early 2015, and the chips designed for the Retina
MacBook Pro and the iMac may not ship until mid-2015,
meaning Apple will be unable to launch significant
product updates until the chips are ready.

Though the 12-inch MacBook is delayed, a separate
report from Economic Daily News, suggests new 11 and
13-inch MacBook Air models are set to enter production
next month with new processors, chassis, screen, and
other components.

This delay could be another nudge for Apple towards AMD or their own
A-series chips to be used in future Macs.
