Quanta rumored to manufacture 11.6-inch MacBook.

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.
