Go here: http://www.macrumors.com/2014/11/02/intel-broadwell-core-m-macbook/ and http://jackgmarch.com/2014/11/02/in...ll-core-ms-to-be-used-for-the-12-macbook-air/ For those much more technologically advanced than I am, do the above-referenced reports shed any light on whether these Intel microprocessors will drive a retina display without sacrificing battery life or current MBA processing power? What do they foreshadow in terms of potentially making the device fanless? Apple seems fixated on making their new devices thinner. The MacBook Air is already thin and mobile enough. What it needs is a retina display without sacrificing processing power or battery life. Form that is good enough should not trump performance.
