Evidence of the 13-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro surfaces, the new iPod Nano might go back to its roots, and Mountain Lion goes gold!
If you own a MacBook Air from the past couple of years there's really no need to upgrade, but a small spec bump and minor price cut make the most-current Air even more attractive.
