13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display tipped for iPad mini event

Many rumors have been floating around over the last several months about an Apple event being held soon for the unveiling of an iPad mini. Exactly, when or if that event will be held is still unconfirmed as far as official invitations being sent out from Apple. Despite the fact, rumors for the next event continue to build.

In fact, we have rumors on rumors with invitations to this rumored Apple event tipped to go out tomorrow. Today another new rumor has surfaced that ties in with the iPad mini event, and this rumor claims there will be a new MacBook Pro unveiled alongside the new smaller iPad. This rumor claims that a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Retina Display will be shown at the event as well.

The tip on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the high-resolution Retina display comes from what 9to5Mac calls consistently re source at high-profile US retailer. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is claimed to have a thinner and lighter enclosure similar to that of the 15-inch MacBook Pro models ever released in June. The source claims that there'll be two models of the 13-inch notebook unveiled.

The two different configurations will offer different processors and storage options and should be available to purchase soon after introduction. The source also claims that the new Retina display 13-inch MacBook Pro will be sold at a price higher than existing 13-inch units and the current machines will remain available. Last week, rumors are circulating that the 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display and the iPad mini were delayed due to production issues. However, the MacBook was later tipped to still be coming this year.
