However its display size which is 13.3-inches does suggest that it would be of the MacBook Air variety, unless of course Apple is planning on introducing a 13.3-inch MacBook, which would actually make it more expensive and not cheaper. If the entry-level MacBook features a $999 price tag, it will certainly be an impressive machine for those looking to experience the macOS ecosystem at a price that is less steep than spending on something like the MacBook Pro. This should also be accompanied by a slightly more pricey version toting double the storage at 256GB.

The new report, from Digitimes Research, points to Apple sourcing screens from LG Display, with a sharp resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.

However, the new notebook would have a much more higher resolution than the MacBook Air's current 1440 x 900.

The new entry-level iPad will reportedly launch in Q2 2018.

Perhaps when the new accessibly priced MacBook reaches the market in June it will sport one of Apple's new patented keyboard designs. Now that claim has gotten backed up by another report which differs slightly on the "cheaper" part.

Hsiao pointed out that Apple originally looked to reduce cost by seeking panel supply for the new MacBook from a China-based maker, but the US-based vendor has made a decision to source the panels from Korea-based LG Display due to issues at the China supplier.

As for the assembly, Quanta Computer obtains 70% of the orders and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) 30%.

LG Display starts mass production of display panels for the new laptop in April.

As for the new iPads, Apple is said to upgrade the current 9.7-inch model likely with a new processor and price it around $300 or so.
