Yes, the new entry-level MacBook Air has a sexy allure but check out the prices relative to the entry-level MacBook and the entry-level MacBook Pro. Daniel Cooper explains:
Imagine that you’ve got $1,300 and you’d like to buy a new Apple laptop. Which one do you choose? The $1,299 MacBook, the new $1,199 MacBook Air or the cheapest MacBook Pro, which also retails for $1,299. If you really want TouchID then you’ll opt for the Air, but if you’re looking for the “best” then the Pro is the only answer. Not that you’d understand that from the price list, thanks to Apple’s crushing inability to properly differentiate its products.
Differentiation is becoming a nuance at Apple.
