Apple may release the long anticipated available model MacBook in September or October of 2018. This is evidenced by data collected by Taiwan resource DigiTimes, a well-known for its connections with sources in the supply chain of the production.
Delivery manufacturer Quanta is expected to grow above 10 million laptops in the fourth quarter just because of “new budget” laptop from Apple.
At the moment the position of “affordable” laptop is a 13-inch MacBook Air that has not been seriously updated for three years.
It is unclear whether there is a new laptop like the MacBook or MacBook Air. It is expected that he will receive a 13-inch Retina display and the price starts from $ 999.
The new laptop will be based on the eighth generation of Intel Core processors with the architecture of the Kaby Lake Refresh that came out in the second half of 2017. The last MacBook Air update happened with the transition to Intel Core i5 and Core i7 fifth generation, released in 2015. Thus, the increase in performance should be significant. Compared with the 12-inch MacBook, the new laptop will also be more productive because it uses standard, not surgeprotection processors.
