A new rumor has emerged today suggesting that a 13 inch Retina Display MacBook Pro will be unleashed upon the public in the coming weeks. Analyst Richard Shim of DisplaySearch is saying that Apple will be engaging in mass production of the 13 inch Retina Display model in Q4 of 2012 (via CNET). The launch of the new Mac is expected to take place shortly after the announcement of the iPad mini which is expected to be in October.
The analyst also suggests that the new MacBook Pro will be in possession of a 2560×1600 pixel resolution which is double that the of the existing 13 inch MacBook Pro models. While no details have yet emerged from Apple regarding any prices or even the existance of such a device, we did some rudimentary calculations and forecast the price of the new MacBook Pro model lying between $1499 and $1599 for the base model.
Notably, this isn’t the first time that Shim has talked about the 13 inch Retina Display MacBook Pro. He also mentioned it back in August of this year.
