This may be good news for Apple fans because they have long been waiting for the MacBook about $ 799 for themselves.
According to a report not long ago, Apple’s cheap MacBook series will be put into production in the fourth quarter of this year. This high-end device can be equipped with high-end features such as high-resolution retina displays at attractive prices.
Recent articles suggest that the price of the MacBook may be less than $ 999, cheaper than an iPhone X.
DigiTimes said Quanta will be Apple’s notebook maker. According to the information on orders, only in this quarter, the total amount of goods has increased over 10 million.
Apple’s low-end MacBook line has been rumored this year. In March, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo said the company could ship a 13.3-inch MacBook with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600, similar to that of a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. DigiTimes’ April report also said that the MacBook will still use the latest Intel processor and slim design.
Recently, Apple’s latest high-end MacBook Pro model using the latest Intel Core i9 chip is causing controversy over performance issues. However, this technology company rarely improves the low-end product line.
MacBook Air was first introduced in 2008 with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 pixels, 13-inch screen and $ 999 price. The 12-inch MacBook is a sleek, high-resolution design, but its $ 1,299 price tag does not compete.
The rumors of cheap MacBooks are provocative. Many sources claim that the price will be below $ 999. The source said the price could drop to $ 799 in an attempt to boost sales of the MacBook to 10% to regain market share from Google Chromebooks.
In a report in March, Bloomberg said that although the MacBook Air has not changed significantly in terms of design since 2010, cheap laptops are still attractive to students.
