Apple’s MacBook problem was a confusing collection of similar devices with different names, different chipsets, different hardware, and the rest. But he may have finally solved the problem. The long-rumored 15-inch MacBook Air arrived months ago, and then Apple surprised us by offering two versions of the MacBook Pro — notably in less than 12 months — showcasing the company’s most powerful chipset yet. The new M3-equipped 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros are a clearer sign of Apple’s direction.
The company has discontinued the long-suffering 13-inch MacBook Pro and, in the same blow, put an end to the old design and the new machine. The divisive and frustrating Touch Bar. These Pro machines — especially the M3 Max models — are great for professionals, and the MacBook Airs are for everyone.
I think, for the first time in a long time, Apple’s laptop lineup finally makes sense.
