I pulled the trigger in December replacing my i2017 iMac 5k with a 16“ M1 Max + screen and with the discount I got plus the price hike here in Europe I totally don‘t regret not to have waited. The only thing I catch myself occasionally still doing is reaching up formte keyboard to double tap a word, or move the cursor on the screen, like I‘m used to do on my iPad/magic keyboard combo. So much for pristine screens as well, I suppose ;-)

iPhone : iPhone Pro : iPhone Pro MaxiMac : iMac Pro : iMac Pro Max
iPad : iPad Air : iPad Pro (2)
MacBook : MacBook Air : MacBook Pro (2)
Mac Mini : Mac Mini Pro : Mac Pro
I don't know when or if an entry-level MacBook will ever reappear, but I think there's a place for it in Apple's lineup, just like there's a place for the basic iPad, at nearly half the price of the iPad Air.
- iPhone: SE, 13, 13 Pro - budget option in old shell, colours and light/thin design for mid-range, fewer colours with performance focus and promotion at top-end. Previous 1/2 year’s phones retained to hit more price points.
- iPad: iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro - budget option in old shell, colours and light/thin design for mid-range, fewer colours with performance focus and promotion at top-end
- MacBook: MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro - budget option in old shell (new 13 inch MacBook in current 13 inch MacBook Pro shell), colours and light/thin design for mid-range (rumoured MacBook Air range), fewer colours with performance focus and promotion at top-end
- iMac (maybe): iMac 24, iMac 27/28, iMac Pro - colours and light/thin design for low & mid- consumer range, fewer colours with performance focus at top-end
- Mac: Mac Mini, Mac Mini Pro/Max, Mac Pro
Might be me focussing on line up and naming too much over pure sales but it would bring a nice clarity to the line which has been missing for a while.
