Apple's 12-inch Retina MacBook Air exists, set for sale this spring

For when 11-inches is too small but 13-inches is too big

Apple's mythical 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is supposedly alive and well. 

The Wall Street Journal reports that mass production of the currently unconfirmed laptop has already begun, but that it won't go on sale until sometime between April and June. 

Apparently known as the MacBook Stealth over at Apple's gaff, the 12-incher is set to launch without full-size USB ports, SD card slot or the traditional MagSafe power connector. It's all to save space so that the Stealth can be the slimmest MacBook to date - it'll feature a new-style reversible USB port, headphone jack and dual microphones, if rumours are to be believed. And, of course, it will feature Apple's eyeball-busting Retina display tech. 

With the rumoured on-sale date still weeks away, it seems less and less likely that Apple will announce the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air at its event on March 9th. Looks like that'll be all Apple Watch all the time.
