Retina MacBook Airs
given the recent announcement of the 3200x2000 resolution wallpapers found in the most recent Lion Dev release 2, i did some calculations and found a nice 2.5-1 scale ratio with the current MacBook resolution of 1280x800.
As it seems, the MacBook isnt a big priority of Apple anymore.. given the success of the MacBook Air..
So here is my prediction..
The new MacBook Airs will feature a new HiDPI display.
Why the MacBook Air?
The new iMac is due to be released very soon, and the 3200x2000 resolution isnt high enough to grant it significant differences over 2560x1440.
Given the new update of MBPs and upcoming iMacs.. the MacBook Air is going to be the first release after Lion is out.
What do you guys think?

Yeah those wallpapers are probably for the iMac.
Maybe a 30" model ala 30" ACD?
No IGP is going to be able to drive videos at that res. Not for a laptop methinks.

I am pretty sure the current Vaio Z with its optional 1920x1080 can be powered via the intel gpu as it has a switch to move between the GT330 and the intel IGP. If Sony(and a few others with switchable gpu on a similar res, but on a larger screen) can do it with the first gen i core cpu, I don't see why Apple can't with newer gpu/cpu combo.
Not sure if this counts, but I can hook my Vaio TT up to a 1080p tv and it can output at that res, and I only have the intel 4500hd on that machine. If apple can give the 11.6in Air something like 144/16000x900res matte display I may have to jump on it, specially if the rest of the specs are up there.
