Wow, 2GHz! I think I have an old laptop from 15 years ago that is faster that that. But at the end of the day I guess people don't need much to process their email.
You can't compare the clock speed from two different processor generations, especially a 15 year old one. That old, even an iPhone would mop the floor with it.

EDIT:

As an analogy, imagine there are two kids. Both kids travel to a school approximately one mile away, each day, by foot. Kid 1 lives in an urban center with lots of roads, back alleys, twists and turns, such as what one might find in an old European city, while kid 2 lives in Kansas, mostly flat, and the path is a straight line to his destination. Keep in mind that both kids travel at the exact same speed (which for the sake of argument, we will measure as 2GHz). Kid 1 takes about 2 hours to get to school, while kid 2 takes about 15 minutes.

The different paths the kids must take can be seen as two different processor architectures. For the purpose of getting to school, it's clear the large open and flat terrain of Kansas is much better suited to that task, while a complex urban center will do the same task much less efficiently.

As CPU architectures progress, efficiency is improved. Imagine that someone creates a bridge which allows kid 1 to get to school by traveling over buildings in a mostly straight line. Same 2GHz walking speed, but now he'll get to his destination in a fraction of the time. That's why you can't judge a processor based solely on its clock rate.

This article IS about the new Macbook Pro ?
The new one still uses 8th generation... Apple charges you premium for a PC with 3 year-old internals, slow processing speeds, tiny hard drives, little RAM and one of their buggiest OS yet...

Waiting for the 14 inch MBP with a SD card slot
Won't happen, ever. Apple doesn't believe in choice or respect consumers. They don't have removable batteries, headphone jacks, or expansion slots on their phones. They took away all but the headphone jack on their laptops as well.

I do agree with you, they should add it.... but this is Apple, this is what they are known for.

How do these discounts work? Do they buy them from Apple in thousands at a wholesale price, increase the price somewhat and sell them on, still making a profit? If so, what is Apple’s interest in doing it, versus selling directly to the customers at the price they want?
If you buy from Apple at the list price, you get benefits like instant delivery of goods, floor models, staff advice, personalized setup, and in many countries a more liberal return policy. All of these have a cost, but consumers are willing to pay for it, think business emergency, a doctor who's time is worth lots, and grandparents.

On the opposite end you have cheapskates which will not buy a computer just because it's $5 more this week.

The key is that every consumer is different, there is not a single "price they want".
