Screens for Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the much-rumored high resolution upgrade to the company's entry-level mainstream notebook, are already in production according to analyst whispers.

Apple has increased the customization options for its MacBook Pro with Retina Display, now allowing the entry-level model to be tweaked with difference processors and storage.

Apple has released updates for the MacBook Air preparing the ultraportable for the new Power Nap feature of Mountain Lion, with the promise of a MacBook Pro Retina update in the pipeline.

This afternoon several benchmarks have appeared in the greater archives of Geekbench (a system we also use for computer reviews) which show a brand new Apple MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. This is different from the current model 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display we've already reviewed in that, one, of course it has a different size display, and two, that it has a significantly lower score in Geekbench than we got - a total of 7806 compared to our 15-incher's 12970. Of course it's all relative, and the important part is the fact that this device may well exist.

Retina MacBook Pro apps expose full resolution

When Apple introduced the Retina MacBook Pro, the logic behind the increase in resolution was the same as with the iPhone 4 and 4S.

There are a couple of workarounds for the problem, however.
