Taiwanese Digitimes often mentions a rumor just as a side note that is actually worthy of a whole report. This time they mentioned in a report about notebook ODM shipments that Quanta got a deal to manufacture 11.6-inch MacBooks. Quanta is supposed to make 400,000-500,000 units in 2010. A cheaper MacBook would definitely be attractive. The 13.3-inch MacBook is selling for $999. The smaller 11.6-inch MacBook could be offered at a price of $799. The new 11.6-inch MacBook would bridge the gap between the $499 iPad and the MacBook line.

There may be a bigger shake-up in the lower-end MacBook Pro line-up for Fall as well. Apple needs to put up a Core i3 based MacBook or MacBook Pro to compete with the rather strong Windows 7 Core i3 competition. The MacBook and the 13-inch MacBook Pro are still running on Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs. It is time to get rid of these and replace them with Core i3 CPUs.

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.
