Apple May Release A 14-inch MacBook Air Only For Asian Markets?
There have been dozens of rumors flying around lately regarding the iPad 3.
People get bored of rumors of one kind. That is why, rumor mongers came with a new and unique rumor, this time it is all about the MacBook Air.
According Digitimes, Apple is considering the idea to launch a 14-inch MacBook Air specifically for Asian markets. This MacBook Air maybe released very soon. Apparently, 14-inch screens are more popular in Asia than they are in other parts of the globe. Digitimes is justifying the rumor on the basis of this assumption.
Currently, 14-inch panels are the mainstream specification of the Asia notebook market, while consumers in Western countries prefer 15-inch models. In the global market, 14-inch models have an about 20-25% market share, but in Asia, the market share is about 35-40%, an indication of Asia consumers’ fondness for 14-inch models, the sources noted.
We want to remind our readers Digitimes has spread various Apple rumors in false that turned out to be false. That is why, readers should not believe anything until they hear from Apple.
A 14-inch MacBook Air may sound a bit silly at first. However, if you remember that Apple introduced an 11-inch MacBook Air a few years ago, surprising everyone, one would not rule out any possibility.
However, given the brand that Apple is, it does not need a 14-inch MacBook Pro to capture Asian market. Because people care more about price and quality. If price is fine with potential customers, Apple can capture market even with an 11-inch MacBook Pro.
