The iPhone 5 and iPad Mini buzz dominates headlines, but signs point to Apple also coming out with a new MacBook Pro that's nothing to sniff at.
DisplaySearchfor a few weeks now that a 13.3-inch Retina version of the MacBook Pro (MBP) is slated for production this quarter.
An Asia-based report followed suit today, saying that "mass production" has begun of the 13.3-inch Retina Pro. An Apple announcement is expected in either September or October, according to the DigiTimes report, citing "supply chain" sources.
That MBP 13-incher will have a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display, according to NPD DisplaySearch. That compares with the 2880-by-1800 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro announced in June.
The 13-inch MBP Retina is also expected to be more consumer friendly, with a price tag well below the $2,199 entry point for the 15.4-inch model.
But wait, that's not all. New iMacs are coming too. The same report says at least two new iMacs are on the way this month or next, while cautioning against anticipation for a high-end model, due to production yield problems with the display. That model is expected later.
