Anyone with a knowledge of the types of LTE chips available and thus the feasibility of a retina mbp with 4G?

That would be true portability. Being tied to wifi sucks.

Most people would use a puck or their phones (or 3G/4G enabled tablet) as hotspots when they absolutely needed it.

Laptops with LTE in them would need the same certifications in every country that LTE phones do. This would add to the cost. Not to mention add a little weight and negatively affect battery life.

plenty of other threads about this - not happening...different countries/parts of world use different LTE frequencies so you would need different SKUs and different models.

Plus it would overwhelm lots of networks.
