    That is, do you think it is possible and probable that an upcoming MBA revision can be 20% slimmer (or absolute difference of 0.075 in), 28% lighter (absolute difference of 0.44 lbs), and a 29% reduction in width (absolute difference of 0.71 in) due to a thinner bezel without a compensation in a drop in battery life?

    A revised 13" MBA that is:
    • 20% slimmer than the current model would be 0.02-0.14 in thick (or 0.04-0.6 in by absolute difference)
    • 28% lighter would be 2.13 lbs (or 2.52 lbs by absolute difference)
    • 29% reduction in width would be 9.09 in (or 12.1 in by absolute difference)

    They can but I don't know if they need to hit the same margins as the iPad air though. My prediction for the next MBA would be a retina screen with the same battery life as the 2013 models. Then in 2015 they would introduce higher specs, lighter materials, and even more battery life.

    Big changes coming with rumored 12" IGZO MBA. 13" will be Retina only.
