The MacBook Air is also getting the Haswell chip, which is ideal for a mainstream, slim-and-light laptop that demands long battery life. But what about the Air's display resolution? It's nice enough: 1440 x 900 pixels on the 13.3-inch model; and 1366 x 768 on the 11.6-inch unit. But the Air has premium pricing ($999 to $1,399), and its display pales by comparison to the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display ($1,499).

WWDC is a good time to announce a MacBook Air with Retina Display, right? Well, no. According to KGI Securities' Kuo, cost, production and thickness issues with the Retina screens make them impractical for the ultra-thin Air at this time, MacRumors reports.
