Apple has revamped its notebook line, mostly on the low end. Its 12-inch MacBook is no more. Meanwhile, it has overhauled its entry-level MacBook Pro, adding a Touch Bar and other hardware features, while providing minor MacBook Air tweaks along with a decent price drop.
Itty-bitty MacBook chargers, chocolate-based art, and batteries; backpacks; and toy cars with seemingly magical powers were all found on the main floor at CES.
Apple has at long last updated the popular MacBook Air with a Retina display, Touch ID, a higher RAM ceiling, and a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports. But not much separates it from the non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the previous MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook also remain for sale.
Apple is having another special event at the end of October. Josh Centers ponders what Apple might unveil. New Macs? New iPads? An autonomous flying car? OK, maybe not that last one.
