Plus apparently the "Pro" crowd hates the touch-bar with a passion, and it's basically discontinued anyways. If the touch bar had any life left in it there would have been a touchbar Magic Keyboard option for the Mac Studio since they now have the hardware to do that. There is not.
I wish Apple would sell a Touch Bar keyboard! But I'm in a very small minority.

I wonder if the retailers are trying to predict a new MacBook Air release for June.
I wonder when people will just accept that discounts of this scale have always been a thing once the HW gets over 1 year regardless of any updates coming in soon.....

The MBP13 M1 is a much better device than people give it credit for. If it is worth the premium to the MBA M1 kinda lies with if you value better speakers, microphones, track pad, bigger battery and a brighter screen at 300 dollars. And if the touch bar is actually something you want. That being said: anything 8G should be hard pass if at the same time it has the "Pro" label.


I also wonder if the MBA update coming 'soon' will be M1 or M2, and if the 13" MBP will even exist after 2022.
Pretty sure that "soon" is November, and pretty sure it'll be M2. I don't see Apple refreshing the design with a two year old SoC, as they would catch all kinds of flag for that, and they know that.

And also pretty sure the MBP13 is going to be discontinued before the end of the year, probably November when we'll get the aforementioned M2 MacBook (Air?), and I'd bet we won't see it return now the Pro domain is properly filled with a device deserving the name.

Apple has sorta understood that port-starved designs don't sit well with the "Pro" audience, and that the same audience is not particularly interested in the thinnest devices possible. So thin, light, fan- and portless for students and lightweight user types, thick(-ish), big SoCs with big fans and a lot of ports for the "Pro" crowd. The MBP13 doesn't fit either bill.
