Unconfirmed data found by AppleInsider reader Sam shows the log of an online battery test archive with a machine identifier possibly pointing to a 13-inch version of Apple's Retina Display MacBook Pro. The notebook is labeled "MacBookPro10,2" which could be a next-generation version of Apple's 13-inch notebook if the company's coding scheme is followed.
On Monday Apple released a completely-redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 2,880-by-1,800-pixel Retina Display and, of course, the competing notebook makers do their best to follow in Apple's footsteps by releasing their own high-resolution laptops. The key obstacle however could be the price they have to pay for Retina Display panels. Apple is rumored to pay at least $150 per unit for the Retina Display found in its MacBook Pro.
Apple confirmed that its CEO Tim Cook sent an e-mail to a Facebook group page dedicated to the Mac Pro on Monday and said that the company is indeed "working on something really great" for 2013, allaying current Mac Pro owners' fears that the desktop has reached its end of life.
The slightly updated Mac Pro presented by Apple at WWDC on Monday wasn't the significant revamp. The machines received 12-core Xeon chips, but CPUs are based on Intel's two-year-old Westmere-EP architecture and not newer Xeon E5 silicon. Professional users were hoping for something more significant and impressive.
Apple has just launched a new TV commercial for the MacBook Pro unveiled yesterday, focusing on the machine’s breakthrough Retina display.
“The radical new MacBook Pro with Retina display. Innovation in every dimension”.
While Apple has run several high-profile ad campaign for Macs such as “Switch” and “Get a Mac”, the company rarely promotes specific Mac products in television ads. But with the Retina display and the new form factor in the new MacBook Pro, the company is obviously interested in attracting widespread attention to this product.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI, whose name and expectations we’ve already mentioned in the previous report, also believes that Apple will discontinue its 17-inch MacBook Pro this year, and might even ax the Pro lineup entirely in favor of the "new MacBook" in 2013. He expects that only the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros will receive updates.
