"High-profile U.S. retailer" says the laptop will launch alongside the iPad Mini.
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.
