Sources close to the matter claim that it will fetch a price tag that is around the same level as the MacBook Air. This should also be accompanied by a slightly more pricey version toting double the storage at 256GB. The screen will have the same 2560 x 1600 resolution as the 13-inch MacBook Pro. And we've also heard more recently on the grapevine that Apple is planning to debut a new, cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air.

Digitimes is reporting that Apple will release a brand new "entry-level" 13-inch Retina MacBook in June, with a lower cost than the current 12-inch MacBook.

All this is speculation, of course, but we've heard previous rumors that Apple will be offering a new entry-level 13-inch MacBook, which could even potentially replace the MacBook Air. The MacBook, meanwhile, has a 12-inch display with 2304 x 1440 resolution.
