Thinner 13" Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with Dual Mics Expected at WWDC
The KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, recently released a new research last week highlighting his expectations for changes to Apple’s notebook lineup at next week’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). With Intel preparing to launch its latest Haswell processors this week, Apple will be able to make significant upgrades to at least part of its notebook lineup but additional changes seem to be in store as well. Among the interesting predictions from Kuo is that the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro will see a slightly slimmer design as well as an improved camera. He said the following about the matter:
We expect the 13” Retina MacBook Pro will have a slightly slimmer form factor for increasing its portability. Also, we think the camera spec will be upgraded from HD to full HD. This will improve Facetime and video conference quality in the high resolution Retina display.
When it comes to the MacBook Air, Kuo believes that the line will see a shift to dual built-in microphones, as was introduced on the Retina MacBook Pro last year. Kuo said the following regarding the matter:
We forecast that this year’s new MacBook Air model will also have dual built-in microphones as a result of positive feedback on this feature in Retina MacBook Pro, which delivers clear voice quality on Facetime and VoIP service.

I don't know how they can get much thinner unless they get get rid of the USB ports.

They could make it slightly thinner. The bottom it slightly rounded, so they could make it flat and remove the slight bulge. But I agree, the edges can't be much thinner at all.
