According to a report by DigiTimes, Apple's upstream supply chain is now shipping out new 13-inch retina MacBook Pro's and refreshed iMac all-in-one computers.

Apple's new 15-inch MacBook Pro, announced at this year’s WWDC, borrowed the fantastic display technology which feature in the company's later iOS devices. So-called "retina displays" are designed with such pixel density that pixels on the LCD are indistinguishable to the observer from a typical viewing distance.

But the extra resolution comes at a cost – a $600 difference in this case, between a standard 15” MacBook Pro and its comparable retina display counterpart.

As such, a 13” notebook could end up making things more realistic for somebody whose budget is a few hundred whoppers short of the 15” model, but still wants a taste of the glassy graphic-enthusiasts bliss offered by the new display technology. Somebody, like a student.

And on that note, DigiTimes mentions,
"The sources estimated that the official launch of the Retina Display 13.3-inch MacBook Pro should be in either September or October to target back-to-school demand and the year-end holidays."

DigiTimes is a mixed fruit-basket in the internet’s technological sphere, and it is generally advised that rumors from the source be taken with a pinch of salt. While the idea of a 13” MacBook Pro with retina display is hardly fantastical, the warning should still be heeded in this case.
