There is also rumor of a 15" M2(?) Macbook Air. I'm not sure who would buy a Pro 14 after it appears, unless there's something I overlooked. Maybe for SD card slot?

The 14" MacBook Pro has:

  • A mini-LED-backlit display, which a 15" MacBook Air almost certainly would not
  • Higher maximum RAM capacity – 32 GB or 64 GB, vs. 24 GB for the M2
  • Higher multi-core CPU performance
  • Higher GPU performance
  • A third USB4 (Thunderbolt) port
  • A HDMI port
  • A SDXC card slot
  • Support for two or three external monitors (vs. a M2 MacBook Air's one)
  • Thunderbolt 4. (Thunderbolt 3 and 4 are very similar, but I think that support for dual monitors is required to be able to say you support Thunderbolt 4.)

+ Fans which means active cooling, means no throttling under heavy load. It's not that usual to get them spinning working with Lightroom.
