13-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Like the 15-inch Retina MacBook, the 13-inch model is one power machine!

With so many new products announced today, it’s hard to tell which one will be a best seller. Knowing Apple’s popularity, I see most all of these (with the exception of the Mac mini) selling in mass quantities.
