I think the new keyboard is better too: you soon realise that you don't have to smack the keys, and a soft touch works wonders: fast, quiet and very nice to use.
Also, review is spot-on in comparing the ergonomics of the ridge shaped Pro to the wedge shaped Air: I also find the Pro cuts into your wrists, and that the wedge shaped Air is ergonomically far superior.
This is a crazy theory and very much wishful thinking:
Wouldn’t it be cool if Apple’s focus on performance for iOS 12 was part of a broader project to develop an ARM version of macOS (possibly written in Swift [ok, now I’m REALLY pushing it]) that would be viable for their next-gen A12 SoC (or possibly A12X)? This would be perfect for their sub-$1000 “MacBook Air” refresh, as they’d be able to drive costs down significantly, I imagine. And I put “MacBook Air” in quotes because I believe it’s likely that they’d simply drop that line and designate this machine as the successor to the MacBook.

No - that would be stupid and most unwelcome. What on earth would you want an ARM version of Mac OS for? To fragment the already suffering Mac OS space? To stop interoperability with Windows? To cause developers more stress. To force every program to be re-coded and re-written. For what? Move on ...
