Apple will reveal new MacBook
The Ming Chi Kuo from the Taiwan based KGI Securities, a well known Apple analyst, has released a new investor note for this year that includes the estimates of the new MacBook laptops. Accordingly, the expected new MacBook models in 2017 will include Intel’s new Kaby Lake based processors. In addition, the 15-inch model might get 32 GB of RAM.
Kuo says that the production of the new 12-inch MacBook will start in the second quarter of this year, and the series production of the new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros will be launched from the beginning of the third quarter, according to a note posted on the MacRumors. The production of the brand new 15-inch MacBook will start in the last quarter of this year. Targeting high-end users, this new model is expected to have 32 GB of RAM. As a matter of fact, it is not clear at this time whether the latest model will be in the “Pro” series or simply will be called as “MacBook”.
Kuo suggests that all of these new laptops will work with Intel’s Kaby Lake processors, the latest generation of Intel Core series processors. Keep in mind that the latest MacBook Pro released last fall has Skylake-based processors which are released by Intel back in 2015.
Of course, there are a lot of gossip about Apple products coming out soon. For this reason, it is beneficial to approach such investor notes with suspicion. However, Kuo is known as one of the highest sources of reliability when it comes to Apple. In the past, certain iPhone features, the price of the top-of-the-line Apple Watch, and details about Apple’s product planning for the year have already been announced, and that’s mostly true.
