Yesterday we heard a rumor that Apple is considering putting Retina display in the next generation of iPad Mini’s. Apple is now rumored to equip the MacBook Air with Retina display giving it a 2880 x 1800 pixel resolution. The new MacBook Air will be launching later in 2013, around the third quarter. According to the rumor, both flavors of the MacBook Air, 11inch and 13 inch should sport the Retina display along with a slightly better looking body.
Apple began equipping the MacBook Pro laptop with a Retina display in 2012. Retina display is also available on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. However adding a Retina display to the MacBook air could also add to its price, as the Retina display technology adds a bit of money to the overall cost of production. Apple has been keeping the entry level laptop priced at $999 for the 11 inch version, but this might change as well. The other major consideration isthe amount of power consumed by the Retina display and for that Apple will have to add a better battery to the laptop. For now we still wait on official word from Apple.
