The smaller iPad may be the star of Apple’s rumored Oct. 23rd invitation-only event, but it will have an impressive supporting cast. Curious?
Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell AllThingsD that the company plans to unveil a smaller version of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display, as well. News of Apple’s plans to show off the device next week was first reported by 9to5Mac.
A 13-inch version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display that debuted in June, will feature the same thin chassis, all-Flash storage and a 2,560 by 1,600 pixel density display comparable to the 2880 by 1800 display of its predecessor, sources say. No word yet on price, though it will obviously be a bit less than the $2,199 baseline price of the 15-incher. With the pricing of the iPad mini being very impressive, we really hope that the pricing of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display will impress us as well.
