RumorTT: Pricing for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro reportedly leaked

We still don't know what Apple is planning on unveiling at the upcoming October 23 press event. What we do know is that there have been a lot of rumors that it will include a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, iPad mini, and an updated Mac mini. There's also been talks of an updated iMac coming out at the event.


Pricing for the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display has also been something to leak out and is being reported to start at a base price of $1699. Rumors place Apple releasing a higher-end version, as well, which will run customers an extra $200-$300. It's a bit expected that the spinning drive in the regular 13-inch MacBook Pro will be ditched for a 128GB+ SSD.

Similar supply constraints, as what happened with the 15-inch model, are expected to occur and the device is expected to go on sale shortly after launch. Display resolution is expected to be 2560x1600, quite the respectable resolution considering the screen is only 13-inches big. We'll be sure to let you know exactly what happens on Tuesday.
