    $999 base model, with the new switch keyboard and a 256gb SSD as the lowest option. Things are looking good for the soon to be released 13/14inch MBP soon. Finally, Apple is making the 256gb SSD as the default laptop storage. :love:

    Technically, the new Macbook Air's pricing is the "same" as before. They just introduced a cheaper core i3 model hence they were able to drop the base price. The core i5 model still starts at $1,099. But yeah, I like that they doubled the base storage to 256GB.

    core i5 models are now quad core processors and storage is doubled to 512gb with the same price as last year’s base model.

    eagerly waiting for a teardown of this new macbook air to see if they improved the cooling system, i.e. if the new one has a heatpipe from the core to the fan, like the macbook pro..

    Planning to "side-grade" from my MacBook Pro 2017 as well. But I'm not sure if I can let go of four USB-C ports .

    According to this video, nope they did not attach a heatpipe from the heatsink to the fan. Bummer but they say it's still overall better than the 2019 model.
