    I still say that butterfly-style keyboard is going to be a big hurdle for a lot of people.

    Big pad + Touch Bar = awesome new stuff! -- But -- flatter keyboard and USB-C = tough sell for many

    Battery life, pretty much the same. 10 hours.

    Somebody get on kickstarter and make a retro PowerBook-looking modern laptop.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:14:47 PM
    "The new MacBook Pro is 6.8 million times faster" than the PowerBook
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:15:01 PM
    Hey, the original PowerBook didn't have USB-A or HDMI ports, either.

  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:16:32 PM
    The MacBook Air is beloved for its incredible (lightness and thinness)
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 6:16:45 PM
    12% thinner than the Air. 13% less volume.

    (the third MacBook Pro 13 inch)
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 6:16:57 PM
    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

    "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.
