I dont get it, is today’s new MacBook really an update for the MacBook or MacBook Air lines? Does it have fans?

If it is MBA how is it different from MB?

It's kind of a skinny version of the MacBook Pro but without the P3 screen and touch bar but nearly as expensive (£1400 compared to £1750) so in reality, a MacBook Pro is a far better investment long term.

Can't believe they kept that awful 'Air' name.

It sits between the old Air (name, shape, price to a certain extent) MacBook (fanless - to judge by HD617 graphics!) and NTB Pro (2x TB3 ports, 13.3" retina display)

I say it's just a bigger MacBook, that's all. But they kept the Air name because that's the name that made Apple famous for a thin and light notebook computer.
