Apple to Ship 4 Million MacBook Units in 3Q13

A 10 percent increase in MacBook shipments is expected in the third quarter of 2013. Apple can ship an estimated amount of 4 million MacBooks in 3Q13. DigiTimes reported according Apple's Taiwanese supply makers that the shipments rate will though increase in 3rd quarter, but decreased according to last year.

Normally 5-6 million units were shipped during third quarter every year. Due to yearly closings, shipments were always increased and third quarter is marked as the peak sales time of the year. But this year, expected amount is far less than previous year's actual shipments.

This decreasing trend can be a result of new 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple released new model in 2012 to get more sales but it did not meet expectations. As a result, Apple shortened supply and suspend orders in first quarter 2013. Apple also adds up new supplier in order to improve sales. May be this could help Apple to gain more sales.

Its 11-inch MacBook Air is the cheapest laptop we've seen from Cupertino, and now its iconic iMac all-in-one's RRP has plummeted to a very tasty S$1488. Inevitably that lower price has been achieved by a trim in components – but has Apple gone a bit too far this time? Appl ...

Apple Could Sell More Than 40M iWatches At $300 Apiece: Analyst

I know, Apple hasn’t even confirmed that it will introduce an iWatch. Yet Wall Street is all about expectations, and Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty is so confident that the iWatch will be a hit that she raised her target stock price for the company today — helping it to touch a 52-week high of $96.89 before closing at $96.33, +1.2%. “We view the Apple ‘halo effect’ rather than the current watch market as the more accurate predictor of iWatch sales,” she says. In her first forecast for the produc ...

It's been some time since we reviewed the Razer Blade 14 - a unique combination of gaming-grade Intel and Nvidia components somehow integrated into an ultra-slim laptop chassis highly reminiscent of the MacBook Pro. It's a fine machine, if slightly anaemic in terms of its graphics power (boosted considerably in its latest revision) and handicapped by an ultra-expensive price point - not to mention a lack of general availability outside North America. So the quest is on to fin ...
