There has been more evidence of a 13 inch MacBook Pro Retina model as it has appeared in an online database at GeekBench reports ArsTechnica.  The machine is said to have run a seed of OS X 10.8.1, which has not yet been released to the developers or the public by Apple.

13″ MacBook Pro Retina clues surface again

At the moment the only version of the MacBook Pro with the Retina display is a new 15 inch version and this version was revealed in June at the WWDC. The 13 inch version of the device has been rumored from early this year, which has left people wondering if Apple were ever going to release it to the public.

The first benchmark tests to come out in July claimed to be the MacBook Pro 10.2, the current 13 inch according to Apple’s system is known as the MacBook Pro 10.1. Naming patterns thus reveal that the 13 inch device with have similar upgrades as the 15 inch model.

A second MacBook Pro 10.2 has now appeared and it has very similar specs to the first, with the difference being the operating system. The machine is said to have a 2.9 GHz processor Core i7-3520M processor and the 32 bit version score is 7,756.

It claims to be running 10.8.1 which many believe is proof that Apple is testing it internally. Earlier they said that they were planning to seed 10.8.1 to developers shortly. Of course it makes a great deal of sense that Apple would bring their high resolution display to the reminder of the notebook line in time. So it seems that it is just a matter of when, not if, we see the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina model.
