    will apple rename macbook air macbook next gen?
  2. macrumors regular

    No, it would not make sense ;)
  3. macrumors 65816

    Yes, they will. The next gen Macbook Pro's will be thin and tapered like the MBA, they won't even have a disc drive. Then it wouldn't make sense to keep calling the MBA the Air and it will become the Macbook.

    Eventually. If I had to bet I'd give it another cycle or two.

    Air stands for lightness.... Just using the wordmacbook does not cut it in this sense

    I can see that happening after the MacBook Pro refresh

    Why not rename the Pro to MacBook? I'd see that happening considering in order to be a "pro" there must be a "base". And AIR represents its extreme portability.

    Or better yet leave them both as is.

    It could happen, especially if they introduce and even lighter, thinner model using an ARM processor which could take the AIR moniker.

    Id prefer they first rename the iMac "Mac".

    maybe they'll make the current base macbook pros into 'macbooks' and upgrade the macbook pros to all have dedicated graphics cards
