Most corporate environments don't have wireless as it is less secure and less efficient. Not having an ethernet port would make it useless to me for nine hours a day.

We have company Wifi available but it's unreliable.

It's $29 for the TB Gigabit Ethernet adapter, not a huge expense. USB Ethernet adapter is still available, also $29.

Will be interesting to see how people accept a $2200 Air.

Have one trade up on the go from 13" to a retina 15"

At least there are still matte 15s in the line up.

I think the annoyance will be the number of dongles to get lost.

I'll let you know...just ordered one.

However, the thinness of the Retina and lack of SuperDrive does not define it as an "$2200 Air" to me. It still has the computing, graphic horsepower and more ports then the regular MBPro (includes HDMI... which is shocking to me considering the history with Jobs). The RMBP just replaced the 17" in price point and form factor with more screen real estate (pixel wise).

I'm justifying the purchase as I don't use optical drives anymore and I'm gonna sell my ThunderBolt Display to fund a portion of it. I really hope it's new vent system is quieter then current MBP under heavy load. Sticking to the base model as the Apple tax on the upgraded ram and hdd is a bit steep for me.

The retina display sounds nice, but I'm really more excited about the IPS display. Finally.

8GB of RAM oughta be enough. You must post a new thread when you get it!!!

Any educated guesses if this "refresh" will impact refurb pricing/availability and how?

There's already updated refurb pricing in the online store. I bet refurb availability will be better in the next week or so as Apple often sells "new" but last-gen as "refurb" to clear old stock.

The MacBook Air refurb I got for my wife was $829 now $789, prices of brand new has gone up by $30 across the MBA and MBP line.

The HD4000 integrated graphics is a significant upgrade though, whereas the old HD3000 performed maybe 90% as well as the NVidia GT320 it replaced, the HD4000 performs about 140% as well as the GT320.
