Taiwan makers claim MacBook shipments may fall in 2014

This news from some of Taiwan-based supply chain makers might come as bit surprising that the overall MacBook shipments for this year will be dropping by about 15%. This means that there will be a decrease from 12 million units in 2013 to 10 million units or even 9.9 million units this year. According to sources, the Macbook shipments in January-February 2014 remained as they were expected to be but for the month of March, the shipments by Apple decreased by a noticeable amount.

But then there are some other Taiwan-based supply chain makers as well who have a different opinion regarding this decrease and they claim that 2014 MacBook shipments estimates may not be accurate since new models are expected to launch in the second half of this year. As the makers have disclosed, Apple is expected to roll out the MacBook Air with Retina display and this explains the need to cut down on the previous MacBook shipments. We are also looking forward to a 12 inch iPad in the second half of 2014 with Quanta Computer responsible for OEM production.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
