    i currently have 2010 MBA, which is probably the best laptop ever i owned, but it's showing its age. i recently bought the new macbook as replacement but couldnt get myself to open it because i fear of regrets. what i really want is a MBA with retina, but it doesn't look like it's coming anytime should i go ahead and keep the macbook? or wait and hope the MBA with retina will show up soon?

    thanks in advance

    I wouldn't hold my breath. In fact, (and keep in mind this is just my personal opinion) I think it's more likely Apple will discontinue the MacBook Air then give it a retina display.

    +2. No more MBA. The MB is the new MBA. Send it back since you obviously have a premonition of regret. Use your 2010 MBA until the spring when the second Skylake MB comes out. Get that one or rebuy a 2015 MB in the refurb store.

    I don't see a reason for the MBA to exist in the future. I think the only reason it's still around is its processor speed advantage (and maybe also for people to adjust to the single port). I bet they'll keep producing it until fanless processors catch up to the performance of current MBAs, put it in the MB and get rid of the Air range. Leaving a lean notebook lineup of just MacBook and MacBook Pro.

    Open and use your beautiful new Macbook. It is the new MBA.

    MBA is dead.
    I'll bet we see a 14 or 15" Macbook Retina (non Pro) at some point...perhaps with a simultaneous "axe" on the Air line
