Apple is on track to begin production of a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display this quarter, according to NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim.
Shim told CNET that Apple's plans for the rumoured MacBook, which would join the 15in Retina MacBook Pro that was launched earlier this year, have seen no changes and are still on course for production to start imminently.
The smaller Retina MacBook will have a 13.3-inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display, Shim claims.
It is not yet clear when (or even if) Apple will launch a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, but Shin suggests that it could be unveiled after the iPad mini is announced, which could happen this month according to the latest rumours.
In July, benchmarks for a new MacBook Pro that is believed to be the 13-inch Retina model were spotted on Geekbench.
