Report: 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro Announcement Oct. 23

As well as the iPad Mini, Apple will launch a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro laptop soon, which is purportedly due to be announced during a conference on October 23.

According to a report from 9to5Mac who cites a "consistently reliable source" at a "high-profile U.S. retailer," Apple will unveil the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display alongside the iPad Mini next week.

Apple released the first MacBook with a Retina display back in June, with a 15.4-inch MacBook Pro boasting a 2,880-by-1,800 pixel resolution. The 13-inch model will reportedly feature a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel resolution.

As for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, an analyst recently predicted that the laptop will launch sometime during the fourth quarter of 2012, with a price reportedly below the $2,199 entry point.

    OK, come on. Enough with the Apple hate. We know they're the devil of the computer industry, but what about the people who have no interest to learn or care how their computer works? (Idiots) Yea, that's who gets a Mac. They make good products.. 2560x1600 + Retina??! That is beautiful. If you deny it, you must drop your fanboism.

    This is so get thumbed down..^

    Hope it has a quad core like the bigger ones, Intel has an Ivy Bridge quad in the same TDP as the chip in the 13" pro.

    One thing though, they still have not worked out all the UI framerate issues on the current retina macbook pro, things like the resize animation and the calender flip you can literally count the frames on. The 13" presumably wouldn't even have a discreet card to fall back on so you'd be stuck with that lag, which the small drop in resolution from the 15" likely wouldn't fix.

    Guy beside me in class has the 15" retina MBP. That machine is freaking gorgeous.

    In the words of PC Gamer: "The retina macbook pro makes me angry, because it makes me hate ever other laptop on the market"
