Apple To Overhaul MacBooks

Apple To Overhaul MacBooks

Apple's entry-level MacBooks are apparently about to see a major overhaul. AppleInsider reports that the 13” notebooks are about to be slimmed down and slashed in price. Insider reports state that, urged by the high sales of the $999 notebook, Apple intends to revamp it substantially. One analyst believes that Apple will release multiple models of MacBook, all at different sub-$1000 price points.

Apple needs to get prices down substantially in order to make their notebooks more competitive with the variety of netbooks and CULVs that have come down the pipe as of late. Increasing battery life by a large margin is believed to be a major priority of Apple's when it comes to redesigning the MacBook. It's also likely that, by using last-generation processors and components, they will be able to cut down on costs while offering a solid boost in computing power over the last generation of MacBooks.

This recession has really changed up Apple's game. They're focusing less and less on high cost computers and gadgets, and more on affordable, reliable products for budget consumers. The $99 iPhone, the cost reduction for the MacBook Pro line, the revamping of the MacBook line, and the upcoming iTablet are all examples of this.

The coming CULV explosion, due to hit hard this Fall, is going to give Apple's MacBook/Pro lines a run for their money, however. It's unlikely that the new MacBook will be out by then, and CULV computers provide an attractive alternative to Apple notebooks. If Apple doesn't put their new MacBooks out soon, they might prove to be too little, too late.

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.
