Report: Apple to Debut Thinner MacBook Late 2014 or Early 2015

Apple is preparing to launch a new, thinner MacBook near the end of 2014, or in early 2015, says a report from DigiTimes. The pseudo-reliable publication, citing supply chain sources in Taiwan, says component production for the new, thinner MacBook has already begun in small volumes.

A Thinner MacBook?

MacRumors notes that report also says Apple will cease production of the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro by the end of the year.

A report in June claimed Apple would begin production of a 12-inch MacBook Air in the third quarter of 2014. A report last month claimed delays of intel’s new Broadwell processors would cause Apple to push back the release of a 12-inch MacBook Air until late this year or early 2015.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has been quoted as saying a new 12-inch thinner MacBook model would feature a Retina display, and a new design, saying, it would “redefine laptop computing” just like the original MacBook Air did.

Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro base model, which Wednesday’s report claims will be retired by the end of 2014, was given a $100 price cut in July when the Retina display Macbook Pro models were last updated.

As always, reports from DigiTimes are always to be taken with at least a tiny grain of your favorite seasoning, although while their timeframe may be suspect, it is logical to believe that the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro will someday join other dinosaurs on extinction lists everywhere.
