According to Digitimes Research, Apple is getting ready to launch a new entry-level MacBook at the end of the second trimester at a cost roughly the same as the current MacBook Air or slightly higher. MacBook Pro 3-inch at 2,560 x 1,600. This Retina MacBook may sound as if it could be offered at a $999 retail rate near the 13-inch MacBook Airs.
Notice that MacBook Air does not have a retina screen. Both the 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro have retina screens. Even the squeaking of the Si is quite noticeable: an Intel Core i5 of the fifth generation, which came onto the market as early as 2015. They can thank Steve Jobs for his stamina (Jobs pioneered the MBA - along with the deceased Intel CEO Paul Otellini, who also entered the scene - in 2008).
Ten years later (2018) it's still remarkable lightweight and slim for a 13-inch notebook and the latest release can be purchased for only $799 (and probably less if you're looking hard). 2018: So what else can Apple do with MacBook Air? Obviously, Apple could also upgrade the Si and screen (among other things), but a specification as a whole would be difficult for Apple to implement if it lowered the cost (although Apple could make smaller changes such as newer Si).
To tell the truth, a lot of people aren't interested in touch bars or the latest and best specifications and would take the chance to buy a new 13-inch MacBook directly from Apple for, say, $899 or $799. Apple could even substitute another MacBook for the MBA, as a Digitimes review on March 12 seemed to show.
Launched three years ago in April 2015, the MacBook (Apple has abandoned any preference or extension, so it's just the "MacBook") is the 11th edition's heir. MacBook Air 6-inch due to its small size (0.52-inch at the widest point) and remarkable low overall height (2 lbs, which still makes it one of the most lightweight laptop computers you can buy).
However, since the actual look cannot be made cheap (compared to the MBA, for example) and because Apple has specified it at the point of purchase with a retina screen, 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and Gen 7 Intel Y-series processor, its cost of $1,300 ($1,299) is high. Enough to stop most shoppers and get them excited about a (seemingly*) less expensive Windows counterpart like the Dell XPS 13, whose ultra-thin f-stops bring the XYZ XPS 13 XYZ size quite near to that of the 12-inch MacBook.
The 12-inch MacBook also has other competitors¹. 2018-2019: Q-Value -- Q-Value -- Q-Value -- Apple Silizium? Although an in-house 12-inch MacBook update is likely, the issue is when? At the moment, there's not much Apple can update the 12-inch MacBook to. Gen 7 Gen Y encoders (currently used by Apple) have no equivalent of Gen 8 encoders.
Whilst this may be changing with the ninth gene Intel Core, Apple will almost certainly not use it this year, as the ninth gene Y-series does not (yet) exists. There are only two Mac ranges with their own Apple processors: MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and iMac Pro. At least three upgraded Mac versions with user-defined co-processors will be released later this year, Apple is working on....
Observers at Apple believe it's only a question of getting the whole Intel processor up and running, and Intel would be losing its fifth biggest client. This 12-inch MacBook, in 2019 or beyond, would be a great car for an all-apple A-series processors used on the iPhone and iPad (I'm not going to get into the very chaotic logistic of making this change here).
Finally, Apple has been awarded the 12th prize. 9 inch IPad Pro: just attach a true notebook keypad and run either macro OS or a new release of macro OS and a very nice clean (sans Intel) Apple notebook is out. In theory, Apple could do the same with the 13-inch MacBook Pro or a brand new MacBook.
Apple may be working on something even more radical: "Apple has patented the tilting LCD display as a vibrant iPad or Mac keyboard," according to a February article. I' ve already said that a 13-inch MBP with an 8th-generation Intel Quad-Core seems very reasonable. That' a fairly big shift, despite what Digitimes said in January about no big 2018 MacBook Pro upgrade.
I used three Windows 10 notebooks with Intel's 8th-generation quad-core and the power surge is great. Benchmark results show a leap over the seventh-generation dual center - which the 13-inch MBP now uses - of 40 per cent. The MobileTechReview likened the XPS 13 (15 Watt Squad 8 CPU ) to a regular (45 Watt) Quad-Core Intel CPU and found that it came dangerously near in some applications.
Unexpectedly, the running time of the batteries is not affected with the use of the Generator 8 Quad-Core. 2018 MacBook Pro 15: 6 seeds? Whereas in the 2018 MBP 13 it is not as likely as quad-core, it is possible that the MBP 15 will switch from quad-core to six kernels, alias the Intel Coffee Lake processors or its ninth generation heir.
Apple may also use the new Intel Gen 8 Gen 8 CPU with AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics, as Dell does with the new XPS 15 2-in-1 that comes out later this year. Facial Recognition: Maybe it's Apple times to work with facial recognition on its MacBooks like the Windows 10 environment does.
Apple, as mentioned earlier, could probably turn the 12-inch MacBook (or a brand new MacBook) into an Apple A-series CPU as long as it can run enough older application programs, also known as apps, that currently only run under Apple's operating system. If Apple actually has a plan to do that....................................................................... 5-inch Asus Zenbook 3, available with the 12-inch MacBook at a competitive price.
