I've been switching between Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, and it's clear that Apple's lighter and cheaper laptop is the best choice for most people

  Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are both solid choices for Mac fans in need of a new laptop.

The main reason to choose the MacBook Pro over the Air is if you need more processing power, memory, and storage than the average person.

Apple's new MacBook Pro fixes its biggest drawback — but it falls behind Windows rivals in one important way (AAPL)

The biggest update to come with Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro is its Magic Keyboard, which replaces the controversial butterfly keyboard that's been prone to issues in recent years. But the base model of the new laptop comes with the same Intel 8th-generation processors as its predecessor, while several Windows competitors run on 10th-generation processors. That means if you want to get the increased performance that comes with Intel's newer processors, you'll have to opt for the pricier $1,...

Apple Announces New 13-inch MacBook Pro With Magic Keyboard

Sooner than expected, Apple has announced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Magic Keyboard. It features optional Intel 10th Gen processors and starts at $1,299. In one sense, it is a minor spec-bump upgrade for the existing lineup of 13-inch MacBook Pros. But it also represents the end of an era: Apple no longer sells any new laptops with the much-maligned butterfly keyboard mechanism. From a report: Apple has moved relatively quickly to cycle out the butterfly keyboard from its lineup. The 16-in...
