Analyst claims 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro still on track

updated 09:21 am EDT, Wed October 10, 2012

Release expected after iPad Mini announcement

Production of a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina display is still "on track", claims an analyst at NPD DisplaySearch. Speaking to CNET, Richard Shim believes the notebook will begin manufacture in the fourth quarter, later than estimates made by other analysts earlier this year for an October production start.

Shim expects the release of the notebook to take place after the iPad Mini is announced, currently speculated to take place in the near future. He also claimed that the Retina display will have a resolution of 2560x1600. Although this is lower than that of the 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro at 2880x1600, the 13-inch version has a higher pixel density of 232, as opposed to 213 pixels per inch.

Internal specifications have not yet been confirmed, but a benchmark for an unreleased notebook was seen in August. The benchmark result suggests it will have similar processors selection to the higher end of the MacBook Pro range.
