Low-Cost MacBook and Pro-Focused Mac Mini Up in Apple’s Sleeve

Apple is likely to come up with low-cost MacBook Pro (for consumers) and high-end Mac mini (for pro users) in its upcoming event. The product may be released in October this year.

Enough of Apple’s iPhones and smartwatches! Here is something for Mac users. According to Bloomberg, Apple is planning to launch a low-cost MacBook and pro-focused Mac Mini.

According to the analysts of the leading news agency, the new laptop will look like the current MacBook Air with thinner bezels around the screen.

Apple Plans Low-Cost MacBook and Pro-Focused Mac Mini

As per the people close to Apple, the tech giant will release higher-resolution “retina”’ version as we find in other Apple products. About the display, they revealed that it would remain about 13 inches.

While the products are in the development phase, Apple’s spokesman Bill Evans didn’t respond to any query of the media persons.

Notably, Apple’s current MacBook Air is the company’s only laptop without a high-resolution screen and it costs $1000. This MacBook Air was updated with a faster processor last year but there is no major revamp in many years.

When Apple launched MacBook with 12 inches in 2015, it was considered as a better answer to MacBook Air. However, this 12-inch MacBook had $1300 starting price, which was beyond the pocket of many consumers.

Probably, Apple wants to lure its consumers with this new MacBook Air, which is targeted at people looking for cheaper computers. Moreover, Apple plans to reach to schools, which buy laptops in bulk.

Apple has many products in the pipeline, and therefore, industry insiders expect the release of Macs in October and not in September. This year, Apple is expected to release three iPhones, Apple Watches with larger screens, and new iPad Pros.

Sales of Macs have left iPad behind with more than 11% of Apple sales represented by Mac in the last fiscal year. Consumers, who have been using Mac for a long time, are not happy with recent updates in Mac, as they didn’t meet their professional requirements.

Apple has found a solution to this problem in high-end iMac Pro and a new MacBook Pro with an updated keyboard and faster processor.

Surprisingly, Apple may come up with the first upgrade to its Mac mini in about four years. For those, who are not familiar with Mac mini, it is a Mac desktop without a screen, keyboard, or mouse in the package and it costs $500.

Many consumers have welcomed this computer for its low price; it is particularly popular among app developers, people running home media centers, and server farm managers.

This new Mac mini will have new storage and processor options, which are always demanded by pro users. Naturally, this improved Mac mini will be available at a higher price than the previous versions.
