I'm sure this is a dumb question, but why is Apple bothering making a 12-inch MacBook Air when there are already 11 and 13-inch models? Was there so much of a demand for something in between those 2 sizes? :rolleyes:

If anything, I'd like to see a MacBook Air with a display the same size or maybe just a tiny bit smaller than the 15" MacBook Pro model. Anyone else agree?

Many people think that a 12-inch MBA will replace one or both of the current models.

As for a larger screen, who knows? I could certainly see them introducing a 14 a year after the 12. That's just a guess though - it's not based on any rumours or informed tips.
