New Photos of 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro Show Battery Layout, Ports, and More [Updated]




Earlier this week, we pointed to a forum thread [Google translation] at Chinese site WeiPhone.com sharing a pair of photos of what was said to be the display assembly from Apple's upcoming 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro.

Battery layout of 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro
The poster of that thread has now updated the original post with additional photos showing a number of features of the machine, including the battery layout, the ports on the left and right sides of the machine, and a number of other internal features. Unfortunately, the pictures are generally rather small and of low quality, but it seems clear that the poster does indeed have access to an unreleased 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro.

Left-side ports: MagSafe 2, Thunderbolt, Thunderbolt, USB

Right-side ports: SD card, HDMI, USB
Other photos include small shots of the main logic board, internals for the various ports, and 8 GB of RAM from Elpida. Several screenshots said to be of the machine booted into Windows 7 and showing an available Retina display resolution of 2560x1600 pixels are also included.

Update October 20 10:23 AM: The poster has added several more images of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, including several comparing it to the MacBook Air.

Looks nice, we will probably see it on the 23rd.Hopefully it won't be at $1699, which is about $200 more than it should be...

I wouldn't get your hopes up.

While I'm sure it will be more than we think it should be....you have no clue what the price will be, other than a rumor.

So you expect this to sell for the same price as the $1499 13" Macbook Air which has a 1.8Ghz ultra low voltage CPU, 4GB memory, and a 1440x900 display?

Looks like it'll be supporting 3x external displays like the 15" model - deffo a contender for a replacement for the iMac and Mac Pro (for those that are happy using Thunderbolt or USB3 drives or who dont need multiple expansion options)

$1699 is right when you compare it with the MacBook Air. Remember, the base processor in the 13" Pro is faster than the i7 option in the Air. Plus, the Retina Display is a lot nicer, although it has less usable room (being 2x 1280x800 vs 1440x900 on the 13" Air). The 13" Air with i7/256GB/4GB RAM is $1599.

Why does Apple even bother to hold a Media Event.By the time it starts we will know what they are going to tell us anyway. Yes, I know I am on a rumors site, bla, bla, whatever, I just want some surprises to be left over for the actual event. Is that really so much to ask for?

Can anyone actually confirm that this is a 13-inch mode and not just the 15-inch?

It's coming it's coming it's coming!

And does the inclusive of two Thunderbolt ports and an HDMI port point to a discrete GPU?

Can an HD4000 really push three monitors by itself?

which makes it kind of a no-no for me if it stays that way

True...I just hope it will have a base of 256 and 8 gigs of RAM (and discrete GPU maybe). Then it will be worth it!

It's definitely the 13 inch. It doesn't have the speaker grills from the 15 inch model.

I've read some rumors pointing to an integratedGPU-only rMBP. And I think that will be the case.

Hey guys ┐Do you see those batteries? ┐how long do you think the battery-life will be?

And talking about batteries... This kind of batteries are glued to the chassis of the MBP ┐right? ┐Do you know if Apple has a battery replacement service for this kind of MacBook Pro? In the Genius bar, I mean.
