I don't have a portable and so never was interested in all the MacBook related tags.

However a question came up in the suggested edit queue where was definitely the wrong tag as would be better.

However I then discovered that they were all synonymized to the same tag. Which is a reasonable solution.

What is not reasonable is that this tag is ; surely should be the tag that is shown and selectable as people who have an air definitely don't have a pro and so would not search for it or look at questions tagged .

    Not sure it really matters, searching for tag macbook automatically results in a search for macbook-pro.

  • Maybe I miss something important here, but it doesn't matter whether one uses macbook, macbook-pro or macbook-air during a search, it will always return the same set of questions. Where did macbook-air not appear?

  • The question was apple.stackexchange.com/questions/413711/… which is definitely about an air and not pro - when tagging I had no idea they were the same - I use tags more for visual info not searching. If I had a macbook-air I would not look at questions tagged macbook-pro as that is a different machine

  • Ah, got it, the system doesn't auto-propose tag synonyms while editing. Yeah, that's rather confusing in this case.
