I keep hearing this refrain from the Apple geeks, but long term I see the opposite happening. I see the Air replacing the Pro. Apple wants the mainstream market, they want thin and light and MBAs get more powerful every year. Eventually the lines between MBP and MBA blur so Apple kills the less sexy machine, thins the sexier one and gives it all the mod trimmings such as new keyboard, new trackpad, new display and eventually—yes, eventually, an Apple chip.
I agree with you that the two will merge but I think they're going to keep the Pro moniker. One reason I think that is because they just released a brand-new product called iPad Pro. Why would they get rid of the Pro moniker for laptops when they just added it to their iPad line. If anything I see them getting rid of the iPad Air/mini moniker and just having iPad and iPad Pro. And then MacBook and MacBook Pro.
