Apple to launch 13-inch MacBook Retina Display October 23rd?

Apple could be moving one step closer to having a completely Retina Display range of MacBooks with rumours suggesting the company is working on a 13-inch model

 

A new 13-inch Apple MacBook Retina Display could be getting a release date of October 23rd with rumours suggesting that Apple will not only be launching a new iPad Mini but also a thinner iMac as well.

Reports now say that the new 13-inch display will boast a resolution of 2,560-by-1,650 pixels which is a pixel density of 230 pixels-per-inch, slightly higher than the 220 pixels-per-inch of the 15 inch model. The new model is also expected to gain the same thinner profile and solid state storage updates as the 15-inch model.

Apple were originally expected to launch the 13-inch Retina version of the MacBook at the same time as the 15-inch Retina model at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference back in June however to much surprise there was no mention of the 13-inch model.

Taiwanese electronics industry publication DigiTimes published details claiming that the original delay for the 13-inch model was down to “weak yields” of its high resolution display and that although Apple had improved the situation that the launch of the new model would have limited availability at first due to supply chain constraints.

T3 will have coverage of Apple’s rumoured event on the 23rd October if it happens and you will find out here first if the iPad Mini is indeed joined by a new retina 13-inch MacBook Pro.
