Apple's MacBook Air may get cheaper in second quarter

Macbook Air

The MacBook Air is available and sells reasonably well, however, but not for less than $1,000. Until Apple makes an official announcement, fans of the MacBook Air will have to wait. The current models of Macbook Air are certainly outdated. But, despite that, the MacBook Air continues to remain a popular choice, especially with students and academia.

The assumption is that a cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air could refresh the brand; which has been almost forgotten as Apple focuses on smaller a smaller MacBook and MacBook Pro. Reports claim that this affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will be launched with next iteration of iPhone this year in September.

A less expensive MacBook may lead to better sales, with Kuo predicting a jump of 10% to 15% this year. The analyst writes that Apple is reportedly planning to release a cheaper MacBook Air model during the second quarter of 2018.

Michelle Shaffer, 45, of the coastal MA town of Hull, lost her appliances under 5 feet of water during the last big storm. Quincy residents who were rescued from inundated homes told CNN they'd never seen anything like this weekend's flooding.

How much cheaper than $999 this new MacBook Air would be, Kuo doesn't tell us.

If you've ever wanted to own a MacBook but just couldn't stretch the budget, you may be in luck as Apple looks set to release its first properly affordable MacBook Air, soon. According to a TrendForce report, the company shipped 4.43 million MacBooks in the third quarter of 2017. Apple has already overtaken Asus in global laptop shipments, moving from fifth to fourth position.

The investor notes also offers some additional details on supply chain reactions to the upcoming iPhone refreshes, the growing success of AirPods and more. Overall, demand for the smart speaker based on "shipping time" is "neutral", the report said.
