  1. It’s gonna be a thicker MB Air with retina and as a consequence shorter battery time. It’s gonna be heavier and cost 1299. Keep it Apple, it’s the Macbook Rare cause no-one is gonna buy it same as the silly Macbook 12! with 1 port.

    • Cuz macs are still expensive in countries like Poland, Czech, Bulgaria or India where cheapest macbook air costs more thant two avarage salaries

    • Yeah, here in India macbook pro cost around 1.2 lakh (120,000) rupees which is equal to around 1600 dollars of US, 300 dollar more expensive of US price.

    • Macbook air is better because it’s affordable. macbook pro is the worst but with touchbar it is thinkable

    • Nope. No report or news on that. Why? Because they need an OS for that. Mac OS is not supporting ARMs as far as I know. Besides when they buy so many CPUs in bulk I doubt that CPU is the component that push the prices up, especially because they can buy a lower performance model for “airs”

  2. The IPad Mini is one of best iPads and I would love to see something there, the new iPhones are junk except memory upgrade, and I need something to replace my IPhone 6+ but the last good one was the 8. Hopefully I can get an iPad Mac-mini to do that. Already have 27” Mac with I7 so no stupid keyboard problems like my MacBook Pro.

  3. Sorry for sounding so somber now but I don’t expect much. I’ve been both hyped and disappointed over Apple products so many times now. What the “creative pro market” needs is a modular mac that you can put custom hardware into and hook up your own screen to. But I mean honestly, what are the chances that they’re gonna go in that direction? It’ll probably just be another thermal throttling turd that costs way too much, can’t be upgraded and is very difficult(read: expensive) to repair. But I REALLY want to be proven wrong though..

  4. It’s worth noting that Intel no longer offers a 15W chip combined with Iris Plus. I think maybe that’s the reason the 13″ nTB will be dropping the “pro” and going a bit downstream, presto, “mystery” budget macbook solved.

    • tipoomaster So you think that the new Macbook air is the old 13 inch Macbook Pro NON touch bar (nTB is really lazy typing and took me a while to figure it out)

  5. I’m so sick of iOS devices. Give the Macs some love for a change! Picking up a Mac mini regardless since I need to replace my aging 2012 model.

    • If its an i7 2012 model then you are still good to go. After the 2014 mac mini fiasco you think they will make a quad core cpu mac mini again? I really doubt it. And just checked the 2012 i7 mac mini vs a i7-8550U cpu (8th gen true quad core cpu for laptops) and guess what, except for power consumption the difference is minimal, maybe up to 10%. GPU wise we don’t even care because you won’t game on either of them anyway, plus you’ll have eGPUs to rely on. So to conclude I think the 2012 i7 model will still be a better choice CPU wise, upgradability wise and of course PORT wise.
