Analyst: 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro Due in Q4

According to an analyst at NPD DisplaySearch, a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display is reportedly due to enter the production phase.

DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim told CNET that a 13.3-inch Retina version of the MacBook Pro is still scheduled for launch in the fourth quarter.

Shim speculates that a launch is possible following the announcement of the iPad Mini, which is apparently scheduled for October 17.

The analyst added that the MacBook Pro will feature a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display. Comparatively, the 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro announced back in June boasts a 2880-by-1800 screen.

As for the laptop's price, it's expected that the device will retail below the $2,199 entry point set by the 15.4-inch model.

    This news has my attention, throw in a SSD drive and wow, a nice upgrade to what I have now. Looked at the 15" one at Best Buy, too big and pricey for me but the display looks outstanding. I love my slightly older 13" Macbook pro and OS X is the best. The haters can hate but OS X just works and for my usage it is the best OS I have ever used for ease of use. The Macbook Pro is the Ferrari of laptops.
    OK haters, start the hate now.
