For several months there are rumors that Apple may release updated MacBook Air this year, which will get a screen Retina. It is expected that the new laptop will be the most affordable in the company’s lineup, and Apple seems to have found how to do it.
According to the publication DigiTimes, the end of last year Apple issued a certification of two Chinese companies — Shenzhen Everwin Precision Technology and AAC Technologies, which will supply components for the MacBook this year. A new supplier was cheaper than Taiwan, so it is expected that this partnership will have a positive impact on reducing the cost of the MacBook.
Analysts agree that on average it will reduce the price of MacBook to $ 50-100. If Apple manage to make the price tag on a new Retina MacBook Air at 999 dollars, it will be a serious bid for the notebook market. And Taiwanese partners probably will reduce the prices of its services.
