    So I was just on Apple website looking at macbbok air for wife and it has USB 3 and all the seemingly new bells & whistles except retina display. Went to Apple store and a "New" moniker is by MBA image on main page. Just How "New" are these models or should I wait for the supossed retina MBA?

    I hate how that New moniker seems to be there for awhile on their products.

    Thanks,
    veth

    The version you are looking at came out in June 2012. It is the newest one though!

    re: New MBA

    The new MBA's just came out in July so they are not due for a refresh for a long time. I love mine.

    Cheers

    It isn't very likely that Apple will release a Retina MBA. However, there are rumors for a Retina MBP 13 inch.

    The "New" logo you see is referring to the summer 2012 release of the MBA.

    The current Macbook Air models were released June 11, 2012. Based on recent rumors, I don't think you are going to see a Macbook Air Retina soon, but rather a 13" MacBook Pro Retina... which seems imminent.

    The Air was "out" or updated months ago.

    It's safe to say the MBA line will get the retina displays. The only question is will it be in the next refresh or the refresh after....

    Or in other words, next summer or the summer after that.

    For perspective....


    Apple had "The new Macbook Pro" advertised on their website until mid-day June 11, 2012.

    Apple then went on to update the Macbook Pro and release the MBP with Retina display mid-day, June 11th, at which time they started advertising "The new Macbook Pro", which was actually a different model than "The new Macbook Pro" which was listed earlier that day.

    MacBook Air will get a retina display when Apple merge their Pro and Air lines which I presume will happen in 2014.
