Apple’s (AAPL) 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro Rumored to Start at $1,699

Rumors continue to emerge about the likely release date and price of Apple (AAPL)’s 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. According to 9to5Mac, Apple might sell the 13-inch high-resolution Retina display unit for $1,699, a $500 premium over the corresponding non-Retina model, while a similar model with add-ons such as better memory is expected to cost $300 more, or just under $2,000.

The rumors are that this smaller 13-inch screen notebook, whose base models start at $1,199 for a 2.5GHz model, and go up to $1499 for a 2.9GHz, will pack a resolution of 2560-by-1600 pixels (the same as a 30-inch Cinema Display) and have all of the ports that are available on the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro when it goes on sale next week.

Apple is rumored to be announcing the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro model at its much-anticipated event next Tuesday, where the company is heavily expected to unveil a smaller version of the iPad — rumored to be featuring a 7.85-inch screen, smaller Lightning connector and up to 64GB of storage — and a refreshed Mac Mini and iMac desktops. That said, there’s still no official confirmation from Apple in terms of what it will introduce at its Oct. 23 event.
