Haswell MacBook Pro importance over 2013 iMac

Apple’s new Haswell MacBook Pro is an important update in 2013 and much more crucial than updates likely to land with the 2013 iMac refresh. The focus on increased MacBook Pro battery life and other enhancements from Haswell outshine anything Apple might add to a new iMac.

The 2013 iMac refresh is not as important as it was last year because this had the radical design change we had been waiting for, along with a few hardware upgrades as well, such as improved performance and better storage options. However, this year will only offer a minor refresh, and so the 2013 iMac update specs will come with Haswell and maybe an improvement to graphics, but apart from that nothing new.

It is for this reason why there is far more emphasis on the 2013 MacBook Pro because it will come with the much-needed Haswell chip and several other upgrades. We already said the new processor would offer increased battery life, something the iMac would not benefit from because it has no need to. However, there will also be performance enhancements, but what else?

We ask this because little is known about the upcoming MacBook Pro 2013 refresh apart from the new chip. However, there are other features we would like to see like improved security because fingerprint would be a killer feature for the 2013 iMac.

Windows laptops have used technology like this before, but it was not as reliable as we assumed it would be and so Apple could show how it is done. We are not sure how Apple would implement this because they could incorporate this into the touchpad, although they could go down the iPhone route and offer a home button, although this could look odd in terms of design.

Do you believe the Haswell MacBook Pro will be a more important update than the 2013 iMac, and if so what changes would you like to see?
