DigiTimes is reporting that March 2012 will deliver Apple faithful a 15-inch ultra-thin MacBook Air or a thinner MacBook Pro according to sources from their upstream supply chain who can't seem to make up their minds.
"Suppliers of Apple have recently started shipping a small volume of components for a 15-inch ultra-thin notebook model from Apple in November and the device could be either MacBook Air or just a thinner MacBook Pro." wrote Digitimes. "The new MacBook is expected to appear as early as the second quarter of 2012, according to sources from the upstream supply chain."
According to the report, mass shipments of the new dream machine will begin in March and could be cataloged in either the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro line. It's the waffling and pure speculation in their report that should cause some reason for doubt, qualifying their story as only a rumor.
DigiTimes, a Taipai-based daily that keeps a close tab on Asian supply chains, is known for its notoriously mixed track record when reporting facts on Apple product launches. Despite that reality, the rumors they churn out are usually the kind that cause instant stir no matter how far fetched they may ultimately be. So consider yourself warned.
With that said, it doesn't mean we still can't dream out loud.
