    I really want a 15 inch air.

    no touchbar, touch id sensor
    at least 2 usb-3 thunderbolt, 4 better
    300+ nit screen
    under 3 pounds
    15 watt quadcore or less power if possible. 10 nm
    Is 12 hour battery life too much to ask?

    I would believe this computer would be very popular IF priced moderately.

    Well, if they followed the same $100 price differential with all being the same except screen size that they used for the 11 and 13" Airs, it would start at $1,299 - certainly a lot more palatable than the $2,399 the only 15" option currently available starts at... More realistic though would probably be a $1,599 starting price, maybe they'd even be generous and throw in 256GB storage for that, which would mean an effective $200 upcharge for the larger screen, but again, if you have no need for a dGPU, i7-H processor, bleeding edge SSD speeds, or P3 screen it's still a marked improvement over the pro to have an option where you don't have to pay for these things.
