Entry-level MacBook Air coming with Retina display in June

Apple new entry-level MacBook to reach 4 million in unit shipments in 2018, says Digitimes Research New lower-cost 13-inch Retina MacBook reported to debut in June, iPad refresh coming

It says priced "at the same level or slightly higher" than the current MacBook Air. This new MacBook Air is said to offer a lower price tag, but apart from that not much else is known. This should also be accompanied by a slightly more pricey version toting double the storage at 256GB.

The new MacBook design will be based around a 13.3-inch display panel, made by LG, with the same resolution as the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.

Current MacBook Air models sport 13.3-inch screens with 1440 x 900 resolution.

We recently heard talk about Apple's plans to release a cheaper MacBook Air in the second quarter of 2018. It's possible that the two analysts are ultimately talking about the same product, or that Apple will be dropping entry-level prices for both the Air and Retina MacBook lines.

Whilst it seems like it will be cheaper than the current 12-inch MacBook which costs $1299, Digitimes is not very precise when it comes to pricing.

Sir Ken Dodd was a man of the people
His carefully guarded private life received an unwelcome airing in 1989 when he endured a five-week trial accused of tax fraud. He passed away peacefully at his home in Liverpool just 48 hours after he married his partner of 40 years, Anne Jones .

Digitimes goes on to claim that Apple's preferred supplier for MacBook panels will be South Korea-based LG Display, considering the Cupertino giant had issues with a certain China-based vendor.

As for the timeframe for the arrival of this new machine, it's expected to enter mass production at the end of May, which would point to a reveal at WWDC in June.

A non-descriptive rumor about a MacBook Air refresh surfaced earlier this month from KGI claiming its to debut in Q2.

According to DigiTimes, Apple is expected to ship around four million units of this new 13-inch MacBook during the course of 2018. The report also mentions that Apple's affordable 9.7-inch iPad and an upgrade to the iPad Pro will launch in the second half of 2018.
