Actually, I’m just shocked that the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro haven’t yet been merged into a single product.
When the MacBook Air first came out, it seemed lto me It was an experimental piece of equipment to show the future direction of the MacBook Pro. The Air was a sculptured single piece of aluminum. It had no optical drive which made it over a pound lighter than the Pro. It used SSDs rather than a mechanical drive.
Yet, here we are a decade later and now confused. In that single slot of that 2x2 matrix Steve Jobs once drew sits three different models available in five different configurations. We have two MBAs, two Pros, and a plain MacBook.
The original MBA was a machine so small, it could fit in a manilla envelope. It was light, used SSDs and had no optical drive. The MacBook Pro now has all of these attributes. Why do we still need an MBA and the Pro?
