    On the macrumors website, their 2 categories, a Macbook Air one and a Retina Macbook Air one. I know its impossible yo know for sure, but do you guys think the new Air will have a retina display or not?

    I'm hoping so. Im waiting to see what the updates will be before I buy one. My current 2007/08 MacBook is due for an upgrade. I've decided on a MacBook Air. I'm in no hurry to buy, so I'll wait. But I really hope it gets a retina display.

    It has to or Apple will be seriously losing a lot of buyers for this thing (including me).

    The MBA is already very thin, if they can't put a higher resolution display in this new one, they are better off keeping the current form factor and adding it there.

    It will probably cost more, at least to begin with. So they will keep an 11" model on sale as an entry level option, just as they have with the 13" model in the MacBook Pro line.
