13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display Will Be Revealed Alongside iPad Mini

Waiting for its little brother? The wait could soon be over.

Apple’s iPad Mini event that is rumored to be taking place on October 23rd is going to be jam packed with goodies. The iPad Mini is coming. Some redesigned iMacs might be revealed too. And now we’ve gotten some solid info that Apple will also unveil a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display at the event.

According to John Paczkowski at All Things D, sources familiar with Apple’s plans have confirmed to him that the company plans to unveil a 13-inch model of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. The new MacBook Pro will have the same design as the current 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. The new MacBook Pro won’t come with an optical drive just like 15-inch model. It will support all-Flash storage and come with a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel display.

The price for the new 13-inch MacBook Pro wasn’t given in the report, but we except that it will be cheaper than the 15-inch models so that it appeals to a broader consumer base.

    If the iPad mini doesn’t have a retina display the marketing team at Apple will have to pull a miracle out of their backsides. *BRAND NEW 13” MACBOOK PRO WITH GORGEOUS ABOVE HD RETINA DISPLAY! NEVER HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS MANY PIXELS IN A DISPLAY! Also available the all new iPad mini with a screen…and ummm…multitouch. *awkward cough*

    A price tag of $1,799 US wouldn’t be at all shocking. The price point of the 15” MacBook Pro w/ retina display virtually replaced that of the 17” MacBook Pro. The 13” MacBook Pro w/ retina display will probably follow it’s footsteps and land around a similar price to the 15” MacBook Pro w/o retina. Makes sense.
