The 13" MacBook Pro should just be called the "MacBook" and it should be priced at $900. It's not even close to the new Pro and Max.

This would also leave room for the new M2 Air as the mid range just like the iPads.

This Macbook Pro is arguably worse than the Macbook Air - it has the touchbar, but otherwise, pretty much the same components - CPU, Display.

An updated Macbook Air would be the sweetspot. I don't need all of the features of the macbook pro 14", but would like to have a cheaper 14" with a M1 or M2 that is more powerful then the current Macbook Air.

Curious, is 8 GB a good minimum for MacOS this day in age? Otherwise, I'm guessing any power user will want 16 GB minimum?
For the basic user and with this M1 processor it’s ok today but no one should be getting the minimum, especially on a computer you can’t upgrade at all. They should just make 16GB the base.

IMO, the 13” MBP is the worst value in the Apple Silicon lineup. Hopefully the refresh puts it more in line as a mid-range machine between the Air and the 14” MBP.

Personally. I think a more interesting alternative is to discontinue that model and replace it with a 14-15” Air at roughly the same price point. I’d buy that machine in a heartbeat.

256GB Mac is like a 64GB iPhone, it would work out of the box, but in a few weeks it will be suffocated with no option but trash as SSD is not replaceable.

if you need the mac just for web or email, please make yourself a favor and buy and iPhone, an iPAd or any Android option of your choice.

Any software nowadays installs at least double data of its own size, and cache size are huge.

just check any "application support" folder or any cache folder in any computer.

I'm not saying you are using a 256GB mac for install any Adobe software of course, but just think how large programs are today, around 3GB, plus all the swap memory MacOS is going to use, plus 8GB of free SSD space just for the RAM when sleeping, plus SSD needs free space to work at decent speeds, ETC.
