Why isn't the entry level 2016 Macbook Pro just called a "13" Macbook"?

    Especially since it only ships with a 15W processor like the ones found in the MacBook Air?

    b.c the MacBook line features core M processors and are fainless. It can't really be called an Air b.c it is bigger than the MacBook.

    They really should have done this:

    MacBook Air: Current 12"
    Macbook: 13" No TB
    MacBook Pro: 13" TB

    That requires renaming the MacBook though. IMO that makes the most sense though. I know they want people to buy the TB version, but people will see entry level Pro and jump all over it.
