    It was only a rumor.

    It's called the Retina MacBook Pro.

    The 13" Retina Macbook Pro will eventually arrive and supplant the Air of the same screen size.

    I would take it in a moment. The main advantage of my current MBA 13 is the flatness and absence of weight. I have it with me daily to work. In the past, the white MB was after a while too heavy.
    I have an option to get rMBP paid by my employer. I am waiting - doubts about the 700g more weight and reports of screen problems.
    If Apple can get a MBA 15 out, lighter than rMBP, even with a normal panel, say 1080x1650 resolution for my presbyopic eyes...

    No, it is actually called "MacBook Pro with Retina display" but that's just silly semantics :D

    Me, too - I'd love a 15" air! The MacBook pro is way too heavy.

    It's much easier to type Retina MacBook Pro or rMBP though :D

    Please, not a 'iPod Touch v iTouch' style battle!

    Cheers,

    Still not here... shamefully.

    Not going to buy 15" macbook pro again. Way to expensive. Just need 15" to be able to read stuff well, macbook air version would just be enough.
