After refreshing the MacBook Air with Retina display this morning with True Tone technology and a slight price drop (and updating the 13-inch MacBook Pro too), Apple has also quietly removed the previous generation MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook from its website.

The 12-inch MacBook was previously priced at $1,729 and last fall adopted the new gold colour found in the 13-inch Retina MacBook Air.

The older generation MacBook Air received a 1.8 GHz processor update in 2017 and started at $1,199 CAD, but was regularly on sale at resellers for $999.
