    Yeah, I think we may see this when the Haswell models come out, I could see it being only as a build-to-order option though.

    I think that having a low end 13" rMBP with a ~2.5Ghz dual core and a high end with a ~2.1Ghz quad core would probably be confusing to some. Also I think that those 35W CPU parts are relatively expensive compared to dual core.

    Doubtful, they had to increase the thickness of the current rMBP13 just to even fit everything in.

    And considering that Haswell is the same size as Ivy Bridge it won't seem any different not until they shrink it down even further.

    Yeah I think they wont come out for another couple of years.
    I mean 13in are the "bottom line" MBPs.
    They sell for portability and not needing the power.
    If you need power, get the 15in.

    I think it wont come out for a while but thats just my opinion.

    No they wouldn't. Intel has a 35W quad core which should have similar cooling requirements to the 35W dual cores being used now.

    Look at the Sony Vaio Z as an example. It fits the 35W quad core in just fine in a similar package.
