    Ok, so there's a 13-inch Pro that's mostly the same, but with no Touch Bar and only two USB-C ports. That's what Apple is suggesting you should buy if you want an updated MacBook Air.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:17:01 PM
    Both weigh 3 pounds (Air and new MacBook Pro)

    "This is advanced design and incredible new techniques that make this new MacBook Pro so unique."
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:17:25 PM
    Let's remember, the current Air design is way old. Many laptops are smaller, lighter, more powerful.

  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:20:57 PM
    Ok, that seems to be the big news. Touch Bar looks very cool. Are the prices going to scare people off? Remember, the classic Air is still just $999.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:21:21 PM
