Apple kills 12 ″ MacBook, MacBook Pro without Touch Bar, and older model of MacBook Air
As we reported, Apple today launched new models of MacBooks Air and 13-inch MacBooks Pro. And with their arrival, the company took the opportunity to rearrange its portable lineup, "killing" basically three machines.
Check below which ones are no longer with us!
12 inch MacBook
The March 12 12-inch MacBook survived for just over four years. At the time, it basically came in to replace the MacBook Air. But as the laptop was relaunched by Apple in 2018 (with the Retina and Touch ID display), the 12 ? MacBook simply didn't make much more sense on the line and proof of that. your death today.
Old 13-inch MacBook Air
When it launched the new 13-inch MacBook Air last year, Apple still retained the old (no Retina display and no Touch ID) sale, most likely because of the new, more expensive price tag.
Now, with the reduction in the input value of the MacBook Air, it makes no sense to keep such an old machine available. So this was another notebook that died today.
Price: Starting at R $ 8,729.10Installment Price: at up to 12xRelease: 2019
13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar
The price logic also made Apple maintain a 13-inch MacBook Pro model with all the features released in 2016 (new chassis, Thunderbolt 3 ports, etc.). One of the big news, the Touch Bar, was not implemented in all models.
The logic here is the same as that of the MacBook Air: most likely to maintain a more affordable notebook model, Apple has left the Touch Bar out of a 13-inch MacBook Pro model, ?cheapening? the machine build and the selling at a lower price than models with the touch bar.
Today, after three years, the company has finally managed to put Touch Bar in this model while maintaining its price. That is: who today wants to buy a MacBook Pro take along the Touch Bar.
Price: Starting at R $ 10,799.10Installment Price: within 12x of $ 999.92Release: 2019
With this reorganization, the line is much simpler and more cohesive: we now have only two models of notebooks, the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, the names themselves already a north for those looking to buy a new computer.
In addition, we have no other Retina-free notebook and they all also have Touch ID. It took time, Apple!
