In June 2023, Apple debuted the MacBook Air 15 at WWDC. Apple may be preparing to compete with Google’s Chromebooks and other entry-level Windows laptops in the inexpensive PC market. According to a new claim, Apple is developing low-cost MacBooks to compete with Chromebooks in education. The suspected MacBook series could debut in the second half of next year.
Industry sources tell DigiTimes that Apple is preparing a low-cost MacBook series to compete with Chromebooks in education, which might be introduced in the second half of 2024. The projected MacBook range will have a metal casing. The future models may use cheaper materials and components to decrease prices compared to the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
Windows laptops and Chromebooks are popular among students and educators. The estimate states that 13.9 million Chromebooks were supplied in 2019 and 30.4 million in 2020. More than 33.5 million Chromebooks will be shipped in 2021. Apple may target the Chromebook industry and keep upcoming MacBook notebooks around $1,000.
Apple has not announced plans for inexpensive MacBooks. The cheapest Apple laptop is the M1-powered MacBook Air 13-inch.
The 13.3-inch MacBook Air M1 IPS Retina display features 1,600 x 2,560 pixels. The Apple M1 chip-powered laptop has up to 16 GB of RAM and 2 TB of storage. Touch ID and an HD FaceTime camera are included. Dolby Atmos-enhanced stereo speakers are included.
