Mac Mini 'Pro' reportedly launching with new MacBook Air 2018

If this is indeed a new MacBook Air, that leaves one remaining question mark in Apple's laptop portfolio: the MacBook, which offers just one USB Type-C port and was last updated in June of past year.

According to Bloomberg, Apple isn't quite ready to put the Mac mini out to pasture.

The current MacBook Air, which costs US$1,000, remains Apple's only laptop without a high-resolution screen.

Minaj particularly took issue with Scott's sales of bundles , which included clothing and "season pass" tickets with the album. In the end, Astroworld took the crown - recording 205,000 equivalent U.S. sales versus Queen's 185,000.

Citing people familiar with Apple's plans, a new report by Bloomberg is claiming that Apple will release a new cheaper MacBook and a professional-focused upgrade to the Mac mini later this year.

As we said before, Gurman's reporting is notoriously accurate, but in this case, it's also backing up previous reports that have suggested the same thing. In short, it is going to be targeted to those who are not willing to splurge a massive amount of cash on a MacBook Pro and want something with more kick than the 12-inch MacBook. The new products, though unconfirmed by the Cupertino company itself, would finally bring updates to some of the oldest products in Apple's portfolio.

Quanta Computer Inc. and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. make the current generation of MacBooks and will make the new generation as well, the people familiar with Apple's plans said.

PepsiCo buys fizzy drinks maker SodaStream for $3.2bn
If regulators approve the deal, it is expected to be finalised by January 2019, subject to a vote by Sodastream shareholders. PepsiCo was advised by Goldman Sachs and Centerview, while SodaStream was advised by Perella Weinberg Partners.

It's said to have a 13-inch screen with thinner bezels and a much-needed high resolution display, according to Bloomberg. Though that doesn't include the price for a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, it's still far cheaper than Apple's next cheapest computer, the MacBook Air. Low-cost Chromebook and Windows laptop use has grown exponentially in schools, and college students, normally the most hardcore MacBook fanbase, have been swayed by cheaper laptop options that offer more portability at a much lower cost. The company is also planning a new version of the Mac Pro, the company's most high-end Mac, for next year, Apple has said. That means developers, those wanting a home media server, or those running a server farm. The new model - which, as before, is expected to come without a display or peripherals in the box - will be focused on "pro users" insiders say.

It's embarrassing Apple continues to sell the outdated Mac mini.
