Keep in mind that this would count as a "new and exciting product," as mentioned by Cook in the last 532 conference calls.

I still maintain the 12" model will be the new 'larger' ipad.
Neither would it be too awkward or heavy. What’s others’ desire for a truly too awkward and large iPhone?

And still, no update to the mini...
My 2011 MBA still runs like a champ, but I long for at least 8GB of RAM, but I hope there is a BTO option for 16GB model. I run various virtual machines on it at times and the low memory really hammers it now. Retina would be nice, but not a deal-breaker for me since my MBA is usually connected to my LED Monitor and I rarely open my MBA.Anxiously waiting. Looking forward to the next iMac refresh too to replace my 2009 iMac after years of wonderful performance.
Who said it would be awkward and heavy???
Even after Apple releases a Retina MacBook Air (whenever they do that), they will likely make slight improvements to the non-Retina MBA and offer both side by side for a couple of years.
There's still a need for an entry-level Mac for the education market and a non-Retina MBA fits the bill because it's the least expensive Mac.
A product refresh for the current MBA line would not likely be the last.

A small spec bump to those models doesn't completely negate the possibility of the 12" Retina model.....But it does indicate that the 12" won't replace them, and certainly won't be priced aggressively (read: expensive).
Because completely different hardware is always the best way to test an application.

Why not update the Mac mini instead of this next gen netbook. You know, something that actually needs an update.
Please don't take this guy seriously. This is the same guy that came here with an URGENT post about needing to know the exact weight of an iPad Air with a Smart Case compared to the weight of a naked iPad 4.
He's obsessed with the weight, and completely misses the entire usefulness of a 12" iPad be causes its apparently impossible for Apple to make it anything but "awkward and too heavy".

Still waiting on a touch screen. Why? Because I develop iOS apps and there is no easy way to test them properly without hooking up an iOS device. That is a bit of a pain when I am on the road.
IMO the ship has sailed on paying premiums for Mac's with Retina Displays.
I've yet to buy one, because I don't see the value. I love the Retina Display on iOS devices.....which Im holding close to my face. But I'm sitting pretty far away from my work monitors....and 1080p is more than good enough for me on those.
I can see the need for Retina on a 12" screen, as you got to get pretty close to that. But I'm off notebooks for now.
