Apple made some changes to its MacBooks product line last week and added 2 slightly updated models to its product lineup. The updated MacBook Air added a True Tone screen and lowered the starting price by $ 1
But with these 2 new models 4 victims came out of line. In an effort to streamline the purchase process, Apple renounced the following:
- The "classic" MacBook Air with full-size USB ports, a dedicated video output, and even an SD card slot. The ports were more versatile, but the processor and non-retina display were outdated. Nevertheless, it had its fans – and was sold for 999 US dollars.
- The 12-inch MacBook, the smallest and lightest model in the range.
- The 2018 version of the Air (which is almost identical to the 2019 model, except for the missing True Tone screen.)
- This older dual-core MacBook Pro is slower than the MacBook Escape his siblings, however, has created a niche for people who have avoided the Touch Bar instead of a reliable old set of function keys (including this magnificent escape key).
The new MacBooks are prepared and ready for the freshman season (students will receive one $ 100 discount and even some free beats headphones on some models), but if you're not prepared to deal with the controversial butterfly keyboard, which always seems to be a problem, do not worry, as you have all 4 keyboards that are no longer available Current prices range from $ 440 (outdated) to more than $ 1,000 (brand new), j e according to memory configuration.

The "Classic" MacBook Air
This non-Retina screen model continues to be available through buyers in the Education Channel, but consumers still find it both new and used.
Yes, there was only one single USB-C connector, and it was not enough if you worked in a work-oriented manner and it was the author of this controversial butterfly keyboard in 2015. But in a way, it was also a great "Writer's Laptop." We skip the older (slower) Core M, Core m3, and M5 models and just link them to the newer "Core i5" versions below
13-inch MacBook Pro (without touch bar)
You can not handle a touch bar? The venerable "MacBook Escape" can always still belong to you.
MacBook Air 2018
This is the update erte MacBook Air, which was introduced only last fall. All you really miss compared to the new 2019 model is the True Tone screen.
