Apple updates its entry-level MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, kills off the MacBook

The latest MacBook Air lineup Apple has quietly updated its entry-level MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lineups, killing off the 12-inch MacBook in the process. The new entry-level MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID.

A month after updating its high-end MacBook Pro units, Apple has updated its entry-level MacBook Pro for the first time since 2017. The most notable change is the inclusion of Apple’s Touch Bar and Touch ID, a move that means there are no longer any MacBook Pro models with physical function keys at the top.

On the spec side, the updated MacBook Pro now features the Coffee Lake 1. 4GHz quad-core 8th generation Core i5 chip (with Turbo Boost up to 3. 9GHz), a substantial increase over the previous 2. 3GHz dual-core 7th generation Core i5 chipset. Like its predecessor, the updated MacBook Pro will still feature just two USB-C ports, compared to the four its more powerful siblings include.

The entry-level MacBook Pro starts at $1,299 and includes a 128GB SSD and 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory.

On the MacBook Air front, Apple has added its True Tone display technology, which uses an onboard sensor to automatically adjust the color temperature of the screen based on ambient light. Aside from that and a $100 price drop, nothing has changed. The MacBook Air starts at $1,099 (just $999 for students) and comes with a 1. 6GHz dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor (with Turbo Boost up to 3. 6GHz), 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory, 128GB SSD storage and an Intel UHD Graphics 617 graphics card.

Both the updated entry-level MacBook Pro and the updated MacBook Air feature Apple’s third-generation butterfly keyboard, which features an additional membrane to prevent keyboard problems that were prevalent in its laptops that used Apple’s previous butterfly keyboard mechanisms.

In addition to updated laptops, Apple also removed the 12-inch MacBook from its lineup. This marks the first time Apple’s entire laptop lineup features Retina displays.
