13-inch Retina MacBook Pro due with iPad Mini, report claims

In addition to the heavily rumored iPad Mini, Apple will launch a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro laptop very soon, a report says.

The 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro may get a smaller sibling.

The iPad Mini isn't the only thing reportedly slated for an event later this month. Pencil in a new Retina MacBook Pro, too -- so a report is claiming.

Apple will unveil a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display alongside the iPad Mini, a report at 9to5Mac says, citing a "consistently reliable source" at a "high-profile U.S. retailer."

That would support a CNET report last week that said production of the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is on track.

This wouldn't be Apple's first MacBook with a Retina display, of course. In June, Apple rolled out the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with a 2,880-by-1,800 pixel density display.

NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has been telling CNET that Apple's 13.3-incher will get a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display.

The 13-inch MBP Retina is also expected to be more consumer-friendly, with a price tag below the $2,199 entry point for the 15.4-inch model.
