Will Apple release a 15" w/o Touch Bar if the 13" w/o Touch Bar sells well?

    Seems like they could have done this at launch-time, and potentially silenced many of their critics, since they are already acknowledging there's a market for non-Touch Bar MacBook Pros with the 13" variant.

    I don't see it.

    The 13" MBP without touch bar is really intended to fill the niche of the old 13" Air. Less expensive, less powerful, more battery life.

    They didn't build a dedicated Air replacement because, as many of us have been saying for years, as soon as you update the Air with a retina screen and the battery to support it, you have a device the same size as the 13" Pro.

    This probably sums it up best. With that said, I do think the 13" no TB will probably be their best selling Mac. It is the perfect blend of power and performance. Coming from a 12" rMB, the power just was not there....even for light task. I would typically feel the stutter and UI lag, and that has not been the case with the 13" no TB.

    Yeah, as soon as I saw that model released I thought it would be their biggest seller by a long shot. It's a really sweet machine, and I expect the battery life in real-world usage is going to be fantastic.
