13.3-inch Retina-powered MacBook Pro should still arrive before the end of the year

Apple’s Retina-powered MacBook Pro’s have been a hit for the Cupertino-based company, but they’ve left out the 13.3-inch model for now. Comments from DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim have today launched new rumours, stating that Apple still has plans to launch a 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Pro before the end of the year:
“DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has been telling CNET for a while now that a 13.3-inch Retina version of the MacBook Pro (MBP) is slated for production in the fourth quarter. And today Shim reiterated that he sees no change in those production plans.
What’s not clear is when Apple would release the new MacBook. Shim speculates that it would happen after the iPad Mini announcement — which is expected to be released in the coming weeks — though he said he has no first-hand knowledge of this.”
The 13.3-inch model should sport a resolution of 2560×1600, which is double the amount of pixels on the current 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. It also blows away pretty much every single competitor in terms of resolution on a screen size of 13-inch-or-so. We should also expect new iMac’s in the near future powered by high-res “Retina” displays.
