The 13" rMBP doesn't have discrete graphics. It has the same Intel HD 4000 as the current 11"/13" MBA. So I agree, I expect no retina this time around in the MBAs, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Me too. I would be in line to buy a 512GB rMBA with intel 5000 graphics.

I have the 15"rMBP now but the discrete graphics are overkill for what I use it for (even the games I play). I just love the look of that display.

They will probably bring the retina display to the 13' models first then the 11' next year or something...

Please pardon my gross ignorance about these things but I'd love to have an 11 inch MB Air but find the 5 hour battery life a little depressing. Will the new Haswell chip have anything to do with improving battery life or is it just a graphics thing? Is there any reason for me to wait for months to hope for an 11 inch Air with better battery life?

It's definitely an option because of the better sleep state inplemented. I'm hoping for a 6-7 11" and a 9 hour 13"

Well....I don't know that it's worth waiting until Sept or whenever to get only one hour more of batt life. I think I'll get it now (because I need it) and then sell it and buy a new one of the batt life increases to as much as 7 hours. Maybe....

Thanks for ya'lls input!

Umm MacBooks will be coming out in June/July after WWDC.

Why September?

colour change (grey like iphone) and retina. Bank on it.

Smaller black bezel. No real redesign, colour change makes sense if only to set it apart from the pro.

Anyone else a bit disappointed we haven't heard more in the way of rumors?

No. I like the surprise and excitment leading up to WWDC.
