Forget the new MacBook Pro, Apple has something much better

The MacBook Pro is the flagship laptop in the macOS range from Apple. Over the past few years, 14-inch and 16-inch models have pushed the boundaries of what these laptops can do, but few professionals need that much power when hitting the coffee shop. For everyone else, the MacBook Air has been consistently delivering.

Over the next few months, the MacBook Air will push the MacBook Pro to the sidelines with consumer offerings that will handle the challenges of everyday life and still have performance left to enjoy over a latte.

Tim Cook’s decision to finally release the 15-inch MacBook Air — the first to do so in the fifteen-year history of the MacBook Air — will grab headlines. The larger screen was something many AirPlay fans were eagerly awaiting, but it may not be the only upgrade to go big. Apple will also go ahead and introduce the new design with the latest Apple Silicon technology.

The third-generation chipset should debut at this year’s WWDC with the assumed name M3, and the 15-inch MacBook Air will likely debut with these all-new chipsets. On a consumer level, Apple Silicon delivers more power and flexibility than any Intel MacBook laptop ever made. The M1 laptops return expectations, and the M2 adds another twenty percent in performance.

The M3 chipset will probably take it one step further, at which point consumers’ ability to outpace the power of even the entry-level M3 is greatly diminished. While professionals will appreciate the specs of the M2 Pro and M2 Max (and eagerly await the benchmarks that the M3 Pro and M3 Max can deliver), even a “professional” MacBook user will struggle to push the shell of the M3 MacBook Air.

Once you get out of the need for a workstation-class macOS laptop, Apple’s upcoming MacBook Air laptops should offer everything you need, and then a little more. The only thing missing from this package is the Air with a larger screen.

Tim Cook and his team will deliver exactly that in the next few months.

Skip the MacBook Pro, because the MacBook Air will meet your life’s challenges head on.
