Apple fans, rejoice! There is a rumor that the tech giant is planning to launch a low-cost MacBook in the near future. According to a report by Digitimes, Apple is expected to release a new MacBook model with a 13.3-inch display and an LED-backlit panel in the second half of 2023.
The report claims that the new MacBook will use the same panel as the current MacBook Air, which has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. However, the new MacBook will be cheaper than the MacBook Air, which starts at Rs 92,900 in India. The report does not mention the exact price of the new MacBook, but it suggests that it will be lower than the average price of notebooks with similar specifications, which is around $799 (approximately Rs 58,000).
The report also states that the new MacBook will be powered by Apple’s own M1 chip, which is a custom-designed processor that offers high performance and efficiency. The M1 chip debuted in November 2020 and is currently used in the latest models of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and iMac. The M1 chip has received rave reviews from critics and users alike for its speed, battery life, and compatibility with iOS apps.
The new MacBook will be aimed at students and budget-conscious consumers who want to experience the Apple ecosystem without breaking the bank. The new MacBook will also compete with other affordable laptops in the market, such as Chromebooks and Windows laptops. The new MacBook will likely run on macOS Monterey, the latest version of Apple’s operating system that was announced at the WWDC 2021 event in June.
Apple has not confirmed or denied the rumor of the new MacBook yet, so we have to wait and see if it becomes a reality. However, if the rumor is true, then we can expect to see a lot of excitement and demand for the new MacBook when it launches. Apple is known for its premium products and loyal fan base, so a low-cost MacBook could be a game-changer for the company and the industry.
