Rumor is components for the launch of the ultra-thin 15″ MacBook laptop has been ordered and begun shipping according to a new report. Release Expectation for the Apple MacBook Super Thin 15 inch could be as early as the second quarter of 2012.
DigiTimes revealed information and facts are incredibly minimal for the moment. The site’s anonymous sources state that components began moving this month in smaller quantities, possibly for test runs with the new laptop. It is actually not clear if this new design will be included in MacBook Air line or the MacBook Pro.
Release Expectation for the Apple MacBook Super Thin 15 inch
Upstream suppliers of Apple have recently started shipping a small volume of components for a 15-inch ultra-thin notebook model from Apple in November and the device could be either MacBook Air or just a thinner MacBook Pro. The new MacBook is expected to appear as early as the second quarter of 2012, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
Estimated by the product planning, mass shipments of the notebook device will start in March and could be cataloged in either the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro line. Apple currently has three screen sizes for the MacBook Pro – 13.3-inch, 15.6-inch and 17-inch.
Compared to non-Apple players’ ultrabook plan, Acer is set to launch a 15-inch ultrabook in the second quarter, at the earliest, while Asustek Computer also has plans to launch a 15-inch model, but does not yet have a schedule for mass production or launch.
While a 15-inch ultrabook model would be considered a full function machine, which consumers normally expect to have an optical drive, limitations over the thickness restriction of 0.8-inch for the ultrabook means the launch of a 15-inch machine with an optical drive and a thickness of less than 0.8-inch may not be in the plans until a later time.
Information and facts are in short supply right now, this means no features, not specific launch time frame with no selling prices, but we shall keep close track of this one for you. Release Expectation for the Apple MacBook Super Thin 15 inch seemingly might hit the shops in March reported by sources.
