Retina MacBook Air coming later this year?

Apple’s Retina-equipped MacBook Pros are stunning notebooks. But, with the Pro line, the idea is to have a really powerful, quick computer capable of replacing a desktop. For those who want a slim, portable laptop, the MacBook Air is the best option, but there’s a compromise: Poorer resolution. For the last couple of years, all many of us have wanted is…

MacBook Air controls over 50% of thin-and-light marketshare

Anyone who owns a thin-and-light notebook knows that the new category of computers dedicated to portability and extreme thinness was coined by Apple’s MacBook Air.

His note to investors also points to some exciting new…

Rumor: MacBook Air with Retina and fresh iPad coming in 2013

Another week, and more Apple flavored rumors to throw on the pile. The latest, courtesy of EMS One (via Macotakara) details Cupertino’s plans to bring the Retina resolution displays to its super-slim notebook range.

MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lineups refreshed, prices dropped

Apple has just announced a newly refreshed range of MacBooks via press release. It’s far from a new product, but it has some new prices and specs (for some). The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina now costs a measly still expensive $1,499 for the base model ($200 off) and dropped the higher end model to $1,699 ($300 off). They’ve had some boosted…
