A great laptop for almost anyone.
The MacBook Air, as it often has, rides the line between portability and power; a light enough package to take anywhere, and enough power to do almost anything. Touch ID is a welcome addition to the lineup.
As much power as you (and your wallet) can handle.
The MacBook Pro features an array of different configuration, able to deliver enough power for the most demanding tasks in a computer that can still fit in your travel bag. The new 2019 models feature a tweaked butterfly keyboard and newer Intel processors, up to an 8-core i9.
