Joanna Stern’s First Look at the New MacBook

Joanna Stern:

Like the first Air, this is Apple’s attempt to reimagine the laptop all over, now for the smartphone and tablet age. Based on my short time with the machine, I think Apple will turn the laptop industry on its head (again), but just like with the original Air, it may be moving too fast for some.

The comparison to the first Air is perfect. There are definitely many people who are ready for this today. But it’s really a statement about the future. Ports are going the way of optical discs and hard drives. But there’s a reason this isn’t replacing any of the existing MacBook Airs today.
