What do you all think will be included with a possible 2015 MacBook Air?
Apple updates their MacBook line about every other year, and 2015 means it would be an update to the Air and Pro lines. What do you guys think will be included? Retina display? Increased battery life? Thinner? Tell me what you guys think!

Thinner, lighter, retina screen and longer battery life.

The #1 area ultra books can stand to improve in is offering improved graphics while still retaining great battery life and lightweight form factors.
Unfortunately, Apple isn't really a leader in graphics capabilities so it'll probably be a Wintel machine that does that =(
We are all expecting retina I believe. I'd love to see an MBA that used an Iris GPU.

I agree and I'm happier gaming on my Mac Mini than I ever was on my old custom-built rig, even though it had a vastly superior Nvidia card. If I have to choose between OS X with HD graphics or babying a Linux install with a decent dedicated GPU, I know which I'll choose. Windows exists only to launch games and has no other purpose for me lol.
That's why I'm so keen on Iris/Iris Pro. They offer some really nice options and Iris Pro in particular includes a beefy 128 MB of dedicated VRAM. That's not much compared to a GeForce's 2 to 6 GB but it can add up to making a huge difference. Plus you get smaller form factors, less heat, less noise, and less power draw from these integrated GPUs.

Integrated GPU has a very small amount of dedicated VRAM and then "borrows" the rest from the regular system RAM. That's probably why it leaves a bad taste in some people's mouths. If you have a low amount of installed RAM your system will struggle to run programs and share with the video card on high graphics software like computer games.
