A few things:

1. This is a rumor, not a report. It may not be true. In fact, there's a good chance its not -- rumors sites I've been tracking for two decades now have around a 50 percent accuracy rate. It would make a certain amount of sense for Apple to make only one MBA model, but the "11-inch" model is actually 11.6 inches, so this would be an unnoticeable change (apart from the Retina quality) for most MBA owners. Under this scenario I guess they'd drop the 13-inch model and leave that to the MBP line. Still more of an educated guess than a real insight IMO.

2. A Retina Display does not change the size of ANYTHING compared to a non-Retina display, it just doubles the pixels so that what is displayed is CLEARER and SHARPER. Don't take my word for it, go to a dealer and compare them side-by-side.
