Tuesday was an exciting day for Apple, as they introduced to the people their newest MacBook Air and a lew lineup of 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops, renouncing their cheapest and smallest models.
The 12-inch MacBook and the $999 MacBook Air made way for the newest addition for Apple’s MacBook lineup, the new MacBook Air that costs $1,099, making it the cheapest laptop in the Apple Store as of now. There’s good news for college students, who can buy Apple’s new MacBook Air at the discounted price of $999.
An increase in prices
The price increase is the latest example of Apple raising rates across its product lines, including its flagship iPhone.
The more noticeable increase in price for their products was when they released their new Apple Mac Pro that costs $6000, a new Mac Pro display that will arrive this fall, and it costs $5000 itself with even a unique stand for it that costs $1000. This fired up the haters and even the fans, and we admit, their new Mac Pro lineup is pricey, although Apple statted that they are not meant to be for every-day browsing or social media.
“We have created a new, high-performance Mac for our professional users,” I’ve said. “It’s designed and engineered to enable a wide range of uses and virtually unlimited possibilities for customization.”
Apple’s future product
Comparing the two, the 13-inch MacBook Air and the 12-inch MacBook, both released in 2015, the 12-inch MacBook was smaller and inferior in power than the MacBook Pro line but more expensive than the Air line.
Rumors say Apple will be making other changes to their laptop lines.
Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities, states that Apple will probably introduce a new MacBook keyboard that may factor sturdier, a more tappable key that isn’t so easily broken and become useless from dust and grit.
