Following benchmarks that appeared online this week, supply chain rumblings begin
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.
I'll take the 13-inch
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.
However, the analyst stops short of confirming that Apple might use the panel in its smaller MacBook Pro - at least right away.
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.
