The new 13-inch MacBook Pro looks like a solid machine, but I’m surprised Apple didn’t bump up the screen size to 14 inches. To me, the larger bezel when compared to the 16-inch model makes the new 13-inch model look a little dated. Moving to a 14-inch screen would aso differentiate the new 13-inch MacBook Pro from the 13-inch MacBook Air even further.

It’ll be interesting to see some benchmarks over the next few weeks. The $1,299 13-inch MacBook Pro ships with 8th generation processors, while the $1,099 MacBook Air ships with 10th generation processors. I’m looking to purchase a 13” MacBook for my wife soon, so I look forward to seeing whether the new 13-inch MacBook Pro has a significant advantage when it comes to photo editing.
