We start a new week after Keynote last Monday by reflecting on the only laptop left in the Apple family that has not been updated. If you have not noticed, despite the fact that there are times when after presenting a new product, in this case the new macbook, those of Cupertino silently eliminate any existing model, in this case the 13-inch MacBook without a retina screen and with a rotating hard disk continues to resist its withdrawal.
It is a laptop that the only thing it has had in recent times is an improvement in the processors it mounts but nothing more. That is why we ask ourselves what continues to stop Apple from removing this model from the available catalog.
Last Monday we attended the launch of a new apple brand laptop that has been given the name of MacBook. A computer that has a new design and that also each of its parts has been completely redesigned. New Retina display, new keyboard, new trackpad, single USB-C port and new motherboard.
On the other hand, those from Cupertino updated the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina models with the new trackpad with Force Touch, in addition to improving the processors of the 13 and 15-inch models with the fifth generation of Intel Broadwell processors. What's more, the MacBook Air 11 and 13 inches also improved their processor with the Intel Broadwell.
Now that we have refreshed your memory a bit, you may have realized that we are right in asking ourselves what is the reason why the computer model that calls itself MacBook Pro but WITHOUT Retina screen and with HDD instead of SDD does not has disappeared from the catalog. Even more so when its price seems high if we compare it with the Retina model or with the MacBook Air that, after all, work more fluid than that model.
We conclude that Apple removes models when it is unavoidable by the release of a new one or because it does not sell at all. Surely there will be many people who are not up to date with the characteristics of all computer models and "bite" buying this model that is totally out of date compared to its competitors.
