I am really torn over this. I love my 2013 Haswell Macbook Air 13". It is also the perfect size for work and portability. The 11" was just far too small to consider for my needs and battery life is better in the larger model by 3+ hours. I don't like the idea of a smaller 12" model especially being a non-standard size. The only thing my laptop is lacking is a higher resolution screen so a retina screen would be more than welcomed but they are giving consumers a higher resolution panel and PPI count on a smaller screen. I am not sure touch would be welcomed on a mac the OS is just not designed to be touch friendly. I can see it working better on a large screen mac but only something to have on the spec sheet for their laptops.
