    Since it has now been 2 years since Apple has updated the non-touch bar MacBook Pro, I am wondering if there will be another one anytime soon. I currently own a 2017 non-touch bar MacBook Pro 13 inch and it still works great, but the space bar, and several other keys get stuck sometimes, so I am going to get it fixed.

    I am wondering if it would be a good idea to sell my non-touch bar MacBook Pro and get the 2018 MacBook Air, which has a better keyboard, and Touch ID. My MacBook Pro now is worth $570 from Apple, and I wonder if I should sell it sooner rather than later so I can get as much money for it as possible.

    Thoughts?

    We don’t know if it will be updated but I would assume not.

    I would certainly consider the move to the Air. It’s covered by the keyboard replacement program and would get the 2019 replacement. I imagine the used prices for the 2016/2017 models will tank. Certainly I wouldn’t buy a used one as it gets closer to the end of the four year program.

    Apple has the refurbished 2018 MacBook Air for $1019 for the 128GB and $1189 for the 256GB version. With Apple offering $570 for my MacBook Pro, that means I could get a pretty good deal for it. My only concern is that reviews of the MacBook Air mention that the display is not as bright and vibrant as the MacBook Pro. Is it a huge difference? I would be willing to wait a bit to see if Apple does update the MacBook Pro non-touch bar, but I don't want to wait too long so I can still get a good amount of money for my MacBook Pro.

    The initial reviews said the screen was disappointingly dark but a software update increased the brightness. It's not the issue that it was AFAIK.

    Doesn’t have the same color gamut, to each his/her own.
