A report published on Monday by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and KGI Securities was indicating that Apple “is likely to stop making” the 17-inch MacBook Pro due to the weak shipments.
Kuo draws the conclusion that the 17-inch MacBook Pro may no longer be produced by taking into consideration the future launch of new revamped notebooks with Intel’s latest generation IvyBridge processors and the of late selling of the Company. Almost a half of the sold notebooks were 13-inch MacBook Pro. According to Kuo’s foresight, the new notebooks will be a combination between MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
Kuo also predicted the faith of other Apple products. He set forth that Apple will give up the polycarbonate MacBook White and he analyzed few days ago how the new iPhone could get 15% thinner. It didn’t take long until the white MacBook was completely discontinued.
It seems that Apple needs to make a lot of room for a new notebook if it decided to drop out the 17-inch MacBook Pro, thus, we should get ready to say hello to other years of hard work and innovation.
