    so the new 2014 MacBook Air still has the same screen
    size & resolution as the 2013? (11" or 13")

    are they the identical screens? (same brand and part#)

    Does this finally put an end to my dream of upgrading to
    a MacBook Air with Retina screen before Christmas of this
    year?

    thanks!

    Probably. This was a very minor refresh, hence Apple's complete silence on it.

    Largely unchanged since the Air's debut in 2010.

    If it ain't broke, dont fix it. I've had my 2010 model since 2010 and have yet to find a reason to replace it. I've even dropped the sucker on its corner and it still work flawlessly! the only updates that have tempted me were; backlit keyboard & i5, but still not enough to make the jump. I have the 11 inch, and im not sure i would want much of a design change to be honest. it just works.

    Apple does minor processor bumps mid-cycle all the time. I would assume that the screen is exactly the same. Think of this not as the new "2014 MBA" but more like a refreshed 2013 model. The MBA will get another refresh within the next 6 months, and it will be significant.

    I do too. 13" since it was first announced in 2010. No reason to upgrade as it's only a travel computer and does what I need it to.
    Cheers,
