13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display rumored for fall release

Following benchmarks that appeared online this week, supply chain rumblings begin

15 inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Love the look of Apple's new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display but bummed the company doesn't offer it in a smaller size yet?

Apple may soon answer your prayers after a 13-inch Retina-powered model popped up in Geekbench results this week, which could be making its way through Cupertino's supply chain soon.

While there's no denying the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is spectacular, not everyone wants a notebook that large.

Judging from several reports that popped up this week, they may not have to wait long for a taste of that Retina goodness.

DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim claims that a 13.3-inch display capable of a pixel density of 2560 x 1600 is gearing up for production in the third quarter.

The good news for Retina MacBook Pro fans is the pixel density on the 13.3-inch panel will be even slightly higher than that of the current 15-inch model: 227 pixels per inch, versus the existing model's mere 200 ppi.
