Cheapest MacBook Laptop:Apple’s iPhone already dominates the smartphone market with a growing market share, and it may soon do the same for laptops. According to a report by DigiTimes, Apple is developing new, cheapest MacBook laptop models that will directly compete with the expanding market for education-focused Google Chromebooks.
The new, less expensive Apple MacBooks will differ from the current MacBook Air and Pro lines. The company will likely use metal casing, but it will be comprised of various materials and feature mechanical components that are more cost-effective. To compete with Google Chromebooks, the cheapest Apple MacBook Air must be substantially less expensive than its current price of Rs 99,900 on the Apple online store. The Apple iPhone 14 Plus retails for Rs 89,900 on the store’s website.
Based on a paucity of related activity at Apple suppliers like Quanta Computer and Foxconn, the report reveals the laptop may be released in the second half of 2024. Chromebooks have acquired significant popularity among buyers over the past few years. According to DigiTimes Research, over 13.9 million Chromebooks were shipped in 2019, with that number increasing to over 30.4 million in 2020 and 33.5 million in 2021.
Apple is presently preparing for the September 12 release of the Apple iPhone 15 series. The company is also expected to unveil the next generation Apple Watch and USB-C AirPods at the event. Additionally, Apple may unveil the first Ultra Apple iPhone.
