Basically, $300 differences in MacBook Air and 13" MacBook Pro gains:

* About 10% longer battery life
* Fan for longer sustained peak performance
* 100 nits brighter (400 vs 500)
* Better speakers and microphones
* Touch Bar
* 8 GPU cores vs. 7 (8 GPU cores is available on higher-end MacBook Air)

If these things don't excite you, then save $300 or so and enjoy:

* Fanless operation
* About 10% lighter weight (2.8 lbs vs 3.0 lbs)
* Superior wedge form factor
* Physical function keys

Same price for an ARM chip with no Windows and questionable Mac software compatibility? Nice one Tim Apple!
Better performance and longer battery. What else do you want? A free car?
