the 2018 13” Pro is a better value than the just released Air. Pro has: Touch Bar (which I kind of like) Quad Core Only .25 lbs heavier Iris v UHD graphics Brighter True Tone display with Wide Color Faster charging brick with slightly less battery life 2x the TB3/USB-C ports Bluetooth 5.0 vs 4.2 Configuring the two machines with 16GB RAM (or 8 as the upcharge is the same) and a 512GB drive, the Air is only $400 less. Going with a 1TB in the Pro and 1.5TB in the Air (because Apple is oddly not offering a 1TB size), they are the same price. Pro seems like a much better value. Not sure why I would consider the Air.
