A report by 9to5Mac claims new products from Apple are inbound at the company's upcoming press event on October 23. The site says Apple will reveal a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina LCD display, the device is expected to be thinner and lighter than the 15" MacBook Pro "Retina" that was launched in June.
The new 13-inch MacBook Pro will be sold in two configurations, with differing processors and storage, and will be available for purchase soon after introduction.
Like with the 15-inch MacBook Pro lines, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display will be sold (at a higher price) in addition to the current non-Retina display model. That computer was updated with faster processors and USB 3.0 in June.
The current 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is codenamed D2, and its smaller sibling is in fact, as predicted this morning, dubbed D1 internally.
9to5Mac also writes that Apple is planning to announce a new Mac mini at next Tuesday's event. According to the site's sources, the new Mac Mini will come in two standard configurations with different storage and processor options, as well as a third model that runs OS X Server.
These new Mac minis are said to begin shipping immediately after announcement. Apple last redesigned the Mac mini with a unibody aluminum enclosure in 2010, and last updated the computer with faster processors last summer. These current Mac minis are on last-generation chipsets and lack USB 3.0, so we should be seeing those components updated in these new models.
