Apple plans to launch this smaller, lighter, and faster version this fall, which will offer users more portability at less cost as compared to the current 15-inch model. The 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Pro is expected to be priced less than $2,199, which is the starting price for the 15.4-inch model.
As per reports, construction of a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display has begun that is aimed to land on a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro.
According to CNET, Richard Shim of NPD DisplaySearch has revealed that Samsung, LGD, and Sharp will work on the latest model’s displays.
Shim also revealed that the production volume of 13.3-inch model will be relatively higher as compared to the production of the current 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro. He also said the quantity depends on production yield rates, which means Apple will take out millions of models if the yield rates are really good.
Apple first took out its Retina displays two years ago with its iPhone 4. Retina is also available on the iPhone 4S and the latest iPad. The 15.4-inch MacBook Pro Retina currently has an IPS display of 2,880-by-1,880 pixel density, which is the best that any PC maker offers.
