15-inch consumer MacBook shipping in May: analyst

15-Inch Consumer MacBook

Apple is planning to produce a mainstream 15-inch MacBook, according to a financial analyst speaking to the Chinese trade paper Commercial Times. As reported by the paper, Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia analyst Vincent Chen claims that he has confirmed the production of a 15.4-inch system that would become available in May. Taiwan-based contractor and long-time Apple supplier Foxconn will assemble the laptops, Chen says. While these reports are periodically inaccurate, the design will mark a radical departure for Apple if true. The company has until now differentiated its portable lines by size as well as by features, with even the recent MacBook and MacBook Pro lines continuing to use different-size screens despite an increased similarity in features. The move may reflect an attempt by Apple to capitalize on the recent success of MacBooks as key factors in its resurgence.
