I'm not in the market for a new laptop as my 15" 2012 RMBP still gets mistaken for a new machine and is running as well as when I first bought it, however it does sometimes give me neck problems due to its weight. This got me thinking about what I would choose if I needed something in the smaller size range. The MacBook has an amazing design, however it is difficult to consider when reports show the 13" MacBook Pro has considerably more powerful hardware for a similar price. I remember the first gen MacBook Air being similarly underpowered, however the second gen onwards became known as an excellent balance of power, portability and price. Just curious if anyone thinks the new MacBook will eventually see a significant boost in power, or if its lower performance is a deliberate part of Apple's strategy to up-sell customers to the MacBook Pro line?
