It has been a while since Apple has introduced a new laptop into their lineup. Both the MacBook Air and the redesigned MacBook have held it down for Apple, while sales of the traditional MacBook Pro have remained steady.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is gearing up to release a new laptop this Fall, along with a new Mac Mini upgrade.
The new Apple laptop will be geared towards consumers who are looking to spend less than $1,000 on a new computer. The new cheaper Mac will be advertised to students, artists, and schools that buy computers in bulk. It will look similar to the MacBook Air, but with thinner bezels around the screen. The screen will be about 13-inches, and will use the high-resolution Retina display.
The Mac Mini desktop will receive its first upgrade in four years. The Mac Mini is a computer tower conveniently redesigned into a small flat box. It comes without a screen, keyboard, or mouse in the box and costs only $500. Consumers can then hook up the box to their own monitor and keyboard at home. New pro features, storage, and processor upgrades are likely to come with the new version. Apple is also set to release new iPhones and Apple Watches this Fall as well.
