Apple is rumored to release a new ultra-thin 15-inch MacBook at some point. It is not clear yet if the new 15-inch Apple laptop would belong to the MacBook Air line or if Apple is going to slim down the MacBook Pro line with a redesign.
Digitimes reports that the components for a new ultra-thin 15-inch MacBook have started to ship in volume. They estimate that the new 15-inch MacBook would launch in Q2 of 2012. Digitimes expect that the new ultra-thin 15-inch Macbook has no optical drive, which would put it more into the MacBook Air line.
The MacBook Air has proven to be a runaway success for Apple. AppleInsider just reported that according to NPD sales figures the MacBook Air accounts for 28% of all Apple laptop shipments.

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 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.
