If they did, I would definitely get one!
Do you think there's any chance of seeing one in 2017?
Nope. we won't see any new MBAs.
hi There! You can bet that if you predict that Apple makes a smaller laptop for their Macbook Air line of merchandize then theyll get cu-stomers right away . They like to get people who can lift their laptops in one hand while typing; which is sometimes necessary .
This. Its a dead product line.
No, they are killing off the MBA line, not adding to it.
It is a shame to loose the air line.
OK so probably a slow seller but it is loved so much but those who do buy it.
I'm thinking of swapping from macbook to air, but high spec model.
i5 and 8GB with 256GB SSD.
Thing is the macbook and pro are getting so thin just about an air already
I think they got it right with 11 and 13 inch models.
It won't happen, but it would've been cool. The new MBP's are thin, but I think it would've been cool to see a really thin 15" MBA perhaps for people who don't need all the power of a 15" MBP, but want the 15" screen.
Nah; the 13" Air is already into desktop replacement territory in terms of weight and portability. A 15" is basically dead on arrival, in terms of usability for the vast majority of the people. Maybe there is a very small sliver of people would find that odd combination useful, but there is just no market for an ultra-book that will weigh 3.5+lbs.
Nowadays, high quality consumer laptops are mostly 2lbs or lighter, like the 12" rMB. Anything 2.5+lb is going to be a desktop replacement.
Apple likes to call everything "Pro" while charging more for it, so I would not count on a new Air anytime soon.
You may possibly see a slightly larger MacBook in the future - but I think the Air is no more.
Hmm... makes me wonder if Toyota will release an econobox semi-truck.
Probably not, because those that need to get 50 miles per gallon typically don't need to move their house with their car.
Nope. With all of their bragging in comparing the new MacBook Pro to the air in therms of weight and thickness, I don't see it happening at all. At least I'm looking forward to many solid years of usage out of my air regardless of what Apple does with the line!
Apple doesn't release sales numbers for individual models of the Mac lineup, but I've heard/read sources I'd consider somewhat reliable say the MBA is close the their best selling model. The average Mac laptop user isn't a power user. The cost of retina screens, extra memory and high-speed processors are not a justifiable expense for most people.
I don't know why Apple is phasing out the model either.
I would like to see a budget 15 inch laptop. I hate how Apple correlates price to screen size arbitrarily. There's no reason why they can't put the guts of a 12 inch MacBook in a 15 inch body. Heck, it would probably get 20 hours of battery!
But I guess in Apple's view, people are so simplistic they just assume that bigger is always better.
They did, in October. Hard to call the new 15" MBs "Pro" when performance is sacrificed for form factor.
I dont see the future of MacBook Air anymore, this product line will be cut soon.
I don't think we're going to see any more Air's. I think the best hope would be for Apple to release a 14 inch MacBook, which I sort of wish they would actually do. The 12 inch MacBook is just ever so slightly too small for me.
