    Probably running ahead of myself, but: Apple could produce a very nice and super portable 14" MacBook within the physical dimensions of the current 13" MacBook Pro. That would be a device you could pack as easily as the current smaller MBP but a lot thinner and lighter and with a screen that is close to the 15" MBP.

    It’s certainly possible.

    The iBook had 12-inch and 14-inch variants that were sold alongside 12-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch PowerBooks.

    The perfect lineup should be
    12" 14" rMB
    15" 17" rMBP

    Maybe, but its premature, the 12" hasn't even hit the streets.

    I would be all over a 14" since I think the 13" is just a tad too small... and while I love my 15", it's just a tad too big.

    Also, I remember reading articles a while back stating that Apple was working on a 14" to satisfy the Asian market as that is the best selling size PC. Obviously, with all the gold color iOS (and now MacBook) products, they have a huge focus on Asia already. (Yes, I'm Asian, so I can say stuff like that. My peeps love that gold color even if I don't.)

    I would hope though, that with the introduction of a 14" they would find room for an additional USB-C port. Is that asking too much?

    Hmm, and then phase out the Air's? You could be on to something...

    The irony there is that the 14" iBook had the same 1024x768 resolution as the 12" and a lower pixel density, making the larger size almost pointless. Good way to keep it from heavily competing with the 12" PowerBook G4 which also had that resolution at a higher price point.
