13-inch MacBook Pro Retina in the Mix as WWDC Concludes?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – One of the most popular sizes for Apple’s traditional MacBook lineup has the Cupertino, California company’s 13 inch laptops, whether it’s been for the Pro, Air or the now defunct white MacBook products.

The biggest unveiling at Apple’s annual WWDC conference this year in San Francisco, California appeared to the introduction of the new MacBook Pro featuring a Retina display. The company has enthusiastically pushed the product via the event’s presentation, the company website and through a prominent television commercial. “With a gorgeous Retina display, all flash architecture and a radically thin and light design, the new MacBook Pro is the most advanced Mac we have ever built,” commented Apple CEO Tim Cook when discussing the laptop in a press release.

The display is without a doubt stunning (it features more than 5 million pixels). However, the product offering initially comes in only one size: 15-inches. And that’s not to say the popular iPhone maker is leaving out the much beloved 13-inch design.

According to an Analyst Blog post via displaysearchblog.com, during the third quarter, supply chains are readying another MacBook Pro for production. That version will feature a 13.3 inch display. Resolution on the device is set for 2560×1600.

Apple rolled out its MacBook Pro with Retina display on Monday. The device relies on quad-core Intel Core i7 processors. Two versions are currently available. A 2.3 GHz version sells for $2,199.00 while a 2.6 GHz goes for $2,799.00.
