Apple is preparing to introduce a 15-inch version of its increasingly popular line of ultra-thin and light MacBook Air laptops in the initial quarter of 2012. New 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch models are also expected to be available at this time.
However; at the beginning of this month, it is rumored that manufactujjrers had started receiving components for the larger MacBook Air model. Apple would introduce the latest iterations of their market-leading ultrabook by March of early second quarter in coming year.
A new, larger MacBook Air plays an important role in the marketing of Apple when many other rivals are going to introduce nearly 50 new ultrabook models at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, which takes place in January.
Following the release of the iPad, many Apple challengers released their own handsets. With the suggested price of Apple’s MacBook Airs of $999 (for the 11.6-inch model), it seems likely that there is a huge market for PC ultrabooks that won’t make such a dent on the wallet.
