    I think others have touched on this, but what if rumored 12" iPad is really just a 12" MBA? What if the analysts have it wrong, just like when they all said an iPad mini wouldn't happen, and all the parts leaks were fakes? I can see apple streamlining the MBA line to a 12" size, retina, with multiple configurations. Thoughts?

    fake rumor, Apple wont merge iOS and OSX thus Macbook and iPad
    they disagreed about Microsoft's way: they wont launch hybrid.
    tablet for tablet use
    laptop for laptop use
    as simple as Apple

    Auto correct got me... I wouldn't suggest ios and OS X merge, but that the rumors of a 12" iPad are really just a 12" MacBook Air.

    I think these rumors usually start because of display panels that Apple is supposedly ordering. Unless you think the new MBA will have a touchscreen, I don't see how it could be confused with an iPad...

    I wonder if the analyst are all assuming that Apple will make a MS Surface like device simply because Microsoft did.
