The Digitimes published material does not specify the specific characteristics of the models, but if you believe the authoritative journalist Mark Gurman (Bloomberg), then by the end of the year Apple will introduce at least one “brand new laptop.”
Whether it’s a MacBook or MacBook Air, or the Pro model is unclear. The estimated price of the new items should not exceed 999.
Considering that the actual cost of the 12-inch MacBook is 1299, then, apparently, this is really about the new laptop model. Apple is unlikely to make a 300 discount.
A couple of weeks ago, the Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News published an article in which it named the alleged processor model that new laptops might receive. It will be the updated Kaby Lake chip. [MR]
