I’ll say it: I will mourn the 12-inch MacBook.
I tried that gold-plated stepchild twice—once in 2015 and once in 2018—and returned it both times. Ultimately I couldn’t seriously integrate into my workflow a machine with such a horrible keyboard, one port, passive cooling, and soldered storage.
But of all current MacBooks, that was the only one that at least had an excuse for such a heinously shallow keyboard.
And of all Apple products I do own, the last one that I *like* is my 11-inch MacBook Air. For some of us, iPads may as well be beer coasters and a “companion device” for when you’re away from your main workstation is simply the most portable version of that same desktop environment.
RIP, little shit. At least you were charming.
