Simple. You're hung up on a name and think that because what you consider to be "professional" excludes a small, easily portable screen, it should not carry the label you obviously place a lot of value in.
You are narrow and slanted for perhaps not being able to understand that the needs of many mobile professionals are greater than what a 13 inch laptop can offer.
Uhh, good for them. Since they're "professionals" and all, I fully trust in their ability to purchase a computer that meets their needs and not "sticker shop" based on what has the word "pro" stuck to it.
The internals may be the similar, but there is a high number of people who need the biggest screen real estate they can get for many reasons.
Good for them. Sure is nice that Apple makes a product that suits their needs. Are these the only people that can be considered "professionals" in your narrow and slanted view (and therefore worthy of purchasing a "pro" laptop)?
Bottom line, everyone's definition of what a "Pro" should be is going to vary.
Thank you for proving my point. So what, again, is your basis for excluding a product based on your narrow interpretation?
How do you define pro?
I would say it's got a lot to do with the quality of materials and workmanship and absolutely nothing to do with what the person using the machine regards themselves as. Lots of "pros" (myself included) need a light, easily portable system with superior battery life, a quality display, and a build quality that will withstand years of being carried around every single day.
Every person I've seen griping about the "13" pro" has been someone who paid a heck of a lot more money for a 15" or 17" and are really just bent that others can now get into their exclusive club for a lot cheaper. I find that silly.
