Apple will “soon” release a MacBook Air with a retina display, according to various rumors and supply chain sources. The computer is supposed to feature a 12″ retina display, thinner design, and perhaps even come without a fan to make it silent.
I’m incredibly excited for this computer: I love my MacBook Air, but I want a higher-resolution display. If Apple can keep the same battery life the current Airs have, all while making the computer thinner and including a high-DPI display, they’ve got a real winner. The price is also rumored to be comparable to current Airs, if not slightly cheaper in some configurations. The timeframe for this computer appears to be sometime during the summer, which would make sense if Apple hopes to target back-to-school shoppers.
