The Mac section of Apple's web site no longer has any references to the MacBook.

Apple - Mac

Did I miss an announcement?

The MacBook was made Edu only a little while back. My guess is while stocks last or until they need the production volume for something else. Eventually the Air will become the MacBook and the Pro will be just as thin. Maybe they'll all be MacBooks or maybe the bigger ones will be called Pros, who knows?
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

I usually keep on top of such things.

Well it makes sense. The MacBook Pro will now get thinner but will offer ports, etc. not available on the MacBook Air.

There's Thunderbolt for that. And the only port the MacBook had that the the MacBook Air does not have is Ethernet.

The MacBook went edu-only when the latest revision of MacBook Air was announced and the entry price was dropped.
