Q3 MacBook refresh?



By

Quoting Taiwan's enigmatic Commercial Times, MarketWatch reports that AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics, leading notebook LCD makers, have nabbed panel contracts for a new MacBook, which will be launched in the third quarter.

The companies are expected to provide up to three million units, evenly split between the two.

Further, AppleInsider reported in early April that the mothership had placed an order for Aluminum enclosures for new MacBooks.

The above information compliments an earlier IGM write up that posited that Apple's pro and consumer portable lines will be significantly upgraded in the third quarter. That report said that the MacBook would get an Aluminum enclosure outside and Intel's next-gen Montevina processor (1066MHz FSB, up to 2.8GHz) inside.

Thereupon, transition to an Aluminum enclosure and LED backlit displays, already included in the MBP, will help Apple meet its stated goal of reducing the use of plastics in its products by year's end.
