Are We Going to Get a Retina MacBook Air?

Weight has always been an issue for me when it comes to devices. I have to admit that I am not the most patient person when it comes to lugging around a bag full of “stuff”. I am sure I am not the only who doesn’t complain “make a statement of fact” that my bag is too heavy because of a laptop (and some other little things all combined). Even a MacBook Air can feel heavy after hours of walking!

But one can’t really complain about the MacBook Air – weight-wise, thickness-wise, and everything else-wise.

Except maybe for one thing: it does not have a Retina screen.

With iPhones, iPads, and MacBook Pros boasting Retina screens, it seems logical to wish for a Retina MacBook Air, yes?

Enter IZGO, a display technology that improves power efficiency massively, which in turn paves the way for thinner, lighter, and longer-lasting devices.

Cult of Mac reports that Apple might be going in that direction and is now on the hunt for people who have experience in “in LED backlighting and LCD displays to be used in the next generation of Macintosh platforms.”

One can go on and on about the technical aspects and possibilities, but only one thing interests me right now: are we going to get a Retina MacBook Air?

YES, PLEASE!!!

    Several other complaints (as much as I love the laptop, especially its quiet and fast operation off the SSD and incredible battery life)

    1. Aluminum chasis is COLD to the touch, especially in the morning, especially in winter.

    2. The HUGE bezel around the screen. A distraction and it makes the screen feel smaller.

    3. The *miserable* keyboard that makes one feel as if they are typing on a BRICK! It is horrendous, there is no travel to the keys, and it gives people finger aches and carpal tunnel syndrome.

    4. The high-resolution screen makes the text and menus too small to read. One has to jury-rig every program; tweaking zooms, and is still stuck with hard to read menus and text. It’s a major FAIL in the usability, accessibility, visibility arena.

    Other than that… :-)

      That COLD chassis – thanks for reminding me! Although it does serve a purpose: wake me up in the morning so I can start working!!
