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.

French site MacG is citing “reliable sources” in suggesting a minor refresh to the MacBook Air line-up next week. With Intel having updated its range of laptop CPUs, it seems likely the 11- and 13-inch machines will see a small increase in speed, from the existing 1.3GHz chip to either 1.4GHz or 1.5GHz. It’s also possible, though less likely, that Apple would increase the SSD size from the present starting point of 128GB. If you can wait until later in th ...

iPad Air 2 leaked photo points at an even thinner design and an integrated LCD panel


An alleged photo of the iPad Air 2 front panel has leaked courtesy of OneMoreThing, which indicates that the next-generation tablet could boast an even thinner design. As seen in the above image, Apple is likely to achieve this by integrating the LCD to the front glass panel. By laminating the LCD into the glass, Apple will be able to shed a few extra tenths of millimeter off the iPad Air’s already thin 7.5mm frame. The company uses this method on the MacBo ...

Lately, I’ve been struggling with what’s clearly a first-world problem: I have too many computers. There was my main iMac, which I love. Then there was my “power” laptop, a mid-2010 15-inch MacBook Pro (with the 1680-by-1050 display and a recently installed 750GB SSD), which I love. And there was my “light” laptop, a mid-2012 11-inch MacBook Air, which I love (and which replaced an older 11-inch Air). So what was the problem? The problem was th ...
