Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch appears in Geekbench

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.

Huawei Ascend D quad XL tops benchmarks

It was somewhat of a surprise back at MWC 2012 when Huawei announced that their new flagship smartphones, the Ascend D quad and quad XL, would not be using chipsets from NVIDIA or Qualcomm.
