  Agree 100%.  Even that somewhat minor detail would have a major impact. Imagine a 14-inch MacBook Air in the same footprint as the current 13 with a thinner bezel?  HOT.
This is what really bugs me about Apple.  There are a lot of people that don't necessarily need a quad-core screamer in their computer but want a larger screen.  If Apple included a dual-core low-voltage i5 (upgradeable to i7) in a 15-inch MacBook Air it would sell like hot cakes. HOT CAKES.  It could even have an IPS screen & still be reasonably priced. Most people I know that buy the 13-inch MacBook Air/Pro are buying purely on the reliability of the Mac but have...
Actually, I take that back.  I think it would be better if Apple increased the screen size in the 13-inch form factor to a 14-inch screen.  That would probably work better and reduce the bezel size, something Apple seems to be doing with the iPad too.
I think a 15-inch MacBook Air is overdue.  I don't think laptops are going anywhere in the near term.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who's been very accurate with Apple's product roadmap plans in the past) claims that there is going to be a new design retina MacBook Pro this year & that everything's going retina in the MacBook Pro range.  I'm not sure I buy this  Given his track record he may just be right...again.  I've been wondering what exactly qualifies as a new design.  Clearly, Jony Ives considered the retina a new design even though it was size reduction of...
I wouldn't mind the same form factor, IPS display at 1920 x 1200.  They could even do the same screen bonding as on the retinas. But instead they just gave up on the 17-inch model.
I'm writing this on my 2009 unibody anti-glare 17-inch MacBook Pro that I received exactly 4 years ago.  I don't find it a hinderance to carry around & at the time I bought it there were plenty of smaller 15-inch laptops from all of the other manufacturers that were heavier than this one is.  I tote it with me every day to work.  There have only been a handful of times I can recall thinking maybe I should down size. I'm now forced to go smaller if I want a faster, new...
For the first time, the 27-inch iMac is an attractive option to me.  I would get one with the Fusion Drive.  But I'm more inclined to get a Mac mini and display so I don't have to throw away a perfectly working screen in order to improve my computational power.  I wonder how long it will take for Apple to apply this same overall design to its Thunderbolt display?
Apple will probably update this display when they revise the Mac Pro sometime in 2013.
I can see how this whole thing plays out right now…   Tim Cook does the typical business recap that's done at the beginning of every one of these events; showing off new Apple retail stores, iPods, music, etc.   As part of the "look at how great our notebooks are selling" portion of this recap, he dwells on how amazing the 15-inch retina MacBook Pro is.  Quotes articles on the screen.  Then Cook says, "Today Apple is announcing a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with...
