How thin could a 12" Retina possibly be?

    It would create rampant pangs of tech lust to see a 12" rMBP as thin as 2 stacked iPad Airs.

    But is that even physically possible? What about a keyboard? Wouldn't be much room.

    Is it possible they're doing 2 facing touch screens and ditching a physical kb altogether?

    Whatever they end up doing, to my thinking they have to get away from the wedge profile if they're going to wow the crowds.

    OTOH, people aren't going to pay $2K for two $800 iPad Airs hinged together.

    So will a 12" rMBP boggle the mind with its thinness, or will it have a slightly slimmer wedge shape, more like the Air family?

    If it's indeed fanless then there's less of a reason to do the wedge shape, which really came about to enhance the slimness of the current Air.
