Entry level Apple MacBook launch rumoured for June

Entry level Apple MacBook launch rumoured for June

All this is speculation, of course, but we've heard previous rumors that Apple will be offering a new entry-level 13-inch MacBook, which could even potentially replace the MacBook Air. If the entry-level MacBook features a $999 price tag, it will certainly be an impressive machine for those looking to experience the macOS ecosystem at a price that is less steep than spending on something like the MacBook Pro.

The big problem will be that the Apple fans expected the new MacBook Air 2018 to be cheap, and with a Retina Display it could have a higher price than some of the company's client would like. It's possible that Apple could keep the Air around, too, and reduce its price, but we doubt it given the dated components and ports. Instead, MacBook Pro feature Air owners wanted for years is finally making its way to the notebook.

According to a report published today by DigiTimes, Apple is readying a new entry level MacBook laptop for release in June.

The new MacBook design will be based around a 13.3-inch display panel, made by LG, with the same resolution as the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.

Ben Stokes set to miss Lord's Test against India
England declared Stokes available once more only after he pleaded not guilty at Bristol Magistrates Court in February. Stokes, 26, wearing a grey shirt, said "hi judge" when he was introduced to Judge Peter Blair QC via the video link.

Current MacBook Air models sport 13.3-inch screens with 1440 x 900 resolution.

The MacBook Air 2018 is about to be produced in approximately 6 million units in 2018, so Apple doesn't seem to have big expectations about the sales of their new product.

LG Display starts mass production of display panels for the new laptop in April. Quanta Computer won 70% of the orders, and Foxconn the rest.

Apple's hardware release schedule is becoming more and more unpredictable, but in addition to at least three new iPhones, several refreshed iPads and MacBooks are widely expected out in the next few months by an increasing number of analysts, tech pundits and alleged insiders.
