Today's Cupertinian rumeur du jour: a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display will share the stage at next week's introduction of the much-anticipated iPad mini – or whatever that shrunken fondleslab may be dubbed.

That is, of course, if there really is an event, as reported, on October 23 to introduce a svelter sibling of Apple's iPad. And if there really is, of course, a 7.85-inch iPad in the works.

The report of a smaller version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display appeared Sunday evening on 9to5Mac, which said that their info had come from "a consistently reliable source at a high-profile US retailer."

If a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is, indeed, in the works, it will come as no surprise – such a machine was predicted back in June, mere days after the 15-inch version was revealed.

And, no, we didn't even bother calling Apple for comment. There's wasting one's time, and then there's wasting one's time in an utterly futile quest. ®

Is the impending appearance of a smaller Retina Display MacBook Pro not enough to sate your rumor hunger for today? Well then, how about a thinner iMac, with a redesign said to be of "epoch-making significance?"
