13-inch MacBook Pro Set to Go on Sale this October

Apple is set to launch the 13-inch MacBook Pro housing a very sharp Retina display this October.

According to one analyst from KGI, he is expecting that the Cupertino, California-based company is going to increase the production of the smaller sized MacBook Pro with the new Retina display a month before its launching date. With this, Apple is expected to sell the first batch in October, also targeting the holiday shopping season.

The analyst also said that Apple will stop the production of the 17-inch MacBook Pro but will sell the new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display along with the previous version of the Mac Pro. These proved to be true at the Apple’s WWDC.

Apple has big expectations for its smaller version of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. The product did not make it to the WWDC due to the difficulty of its assembly.

Just like the Air, the new MacBook Pro will not have an optical disk drive and will only rely on the flash memory storage. The screen resolution will be 2560 x 1600 pixels and will be slightly thinner than the 15-inch variety.

  • No optical disk drive

  • 2560 x 1600 pixel display – Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics
