That is why I said mobile. 1920x1080 crammed into a 13" dispay without scaling looks pretty bad on OSX with its bad resolution manager. Have you seen a ative res rMBP? Text is all but unreadable and a 1080p MBP 13"would only be a little better.What do you mean? Isn't the iMac 21" 1920 x 1080?
People were saying the same thing last year with the Pro - i think the chances are actually quite high.There will be no "retina Air". If it was technologically possible for Apple to make 13" rMBP in a thinner "Air" form factor (it is not) - they would make just one 13" laptop.
As things stand, retina display requires a thicker form factor. That's why we see two separate 13" models - one optimized for thinness (at the exception of resolution), and another optimized for screen resolution (at the expense of thinness).
Yes Apple will make all Macbook line with retina display. If you disagree then tell me why Apple is ditching cMBP??? Without retina I would call it as cMBA!

Very true. The rMBP blurs the line between ultra portable and high performance laptops. I'm currently using a 2008 Macbook and it's heavy enough to be obvious when carried around from place to place. Sure it's not too heavy, but it certainly adds some noticeable weight to my work bag.if you think that rMBP is too heavy, a monthly gym membership would be a better choice than a rMBA
The technology is already here. All the competitors, which don't have a fraction of Apple's economic power and design abilities - such as Dell, Asus, Acer, HP, Toshiba, Fujitsu and Samsing - are announcing their ultrabooks with resolutions of 2560x1440 and up.It's a bummer, but I have a feeling we're just not quite there yet. Maybe next year. It's too bad, because a retina Air is all I'm waiting on in order to upgrade from my current setup.
People want it. That's why there are always people hogging them in Apple Stores. People just can't afford it, or in reality don't need the extra horsepower under the hood.Please don't add retina....it will ruin everything that's good about an MBA. if you want retina, just buy a rMBP13 that no one wants!!
Really? A much larger logic board with a bigger CPU and GPU, 8 times more RAM, more ports, bigger battery and a fan. That takes up substantially more space that the iPad, which is pretty much just a battery and tiny logic board.[picks up iPad 4, looks it over]
Retina MBA? They pulled off the iPad 4 (much to naysayers' surprise), so why not? Better processor, keyboard, and a few ports don't take up that much more space.
