MacBook

Apple’s 12-inch notebook launched in 2015, and introduced us to a ton of new features that other MacBooks now have (like the Force Touch trackpad, butterfly key mechanism, and USB-C port). Though we didn’t hear anything about it during Thursday’s event, it’s definitely still around, in four colors (to match your iPhone, naturally).

Some bad news for MacBook Air fans: Apple quietly killed the 11-inch MacBook Air on Thursday, and while the 13-inch Air is currently still available, Apple won’t be updating it going forward. However, Apple did make a point of comparing the Touch Bar-free 13-inch iPad Pro to the Air, noting that this new model is smaller and lighter than the Air while offering more power. The 12-inch standard MacBook has also been compared to the Air.

The new MacBook Pro is smaller and lighter than the Air, as Apple’s Phil Schiller shows us here. 

For now, here’s what you’ll find in the last remaining Air: 

Price: $999 for 128GB of storage; $1,199 for 256GB of storage
Configurations: 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz, Intel HD graphics 6000, 8GB memory, 128GB/256GB PCIe-based flash storage
When can I get it? Right now!
